1 Hotel South Beach the ultimate eco-friendly hotel

The ultimate eco-friendly hotel.

Miami is known for its blue skies, palm trees and transparent waters. Thanks to the new, recently opened, 1 Hotel South Beach, Miami can now offer a green way to live, one that supports its beautiful outdoors.

This nature-inspired beach-front property is the ultimate eco-friendly oasis. With all-organic décor, green cleaning solvents for its upkeep, and bedrooms equipped with filtered taps and hemp blend-filled beds, this hotel is committed to providing an all-green experience. On top of this, 1 Hotel uses HEPA air filters and a Del Ozone system for their pools for safe, reliable ozonation.

Guests and the local community will even be able to buy organic foods at the ‘Lobby Farm Stand’ every day, and use Tesla electric vehicles during their stay.

Once a month the hotel dims lights in its public spaces and offer a candlelit evening… so romantic! Coupled with this dimmed environment is the opportunity to stargaze with telescopes.

For the best experience, book your stay during ‘Dark Sky’ or ‘Star Gazing’ days! Once a month the hotel dims lights in its public spaces and offer a candlelit evening… so romantic! Coupled with this dimmed environment is the opportunity to stargaze with telescopes. Even astrologers will be on hand!

Here is what the 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach team had to share with us:

BWB: 1 Hotel South Beach is serious about its eco-friendly mission: what are some of its greatest ‘green’ achievements?

Resources and materials
Designed to bring the outside in, every detail throughout the property is inspired by nature,  without sacrificing style, comfort or luxury. This hotel uses recycled wood room keys, cardboard hangers, glasses made of recycled wine bottles, beetle-killed wood, hemp mattresses, organic sheets and chalkboards instead of notepads.

Green moments
Plant the Future helps create green moments throughout the hotel by installing living art exhibits, such as terrariums in all guest rooms and a real moss art wall. In addition, AgroSci created a living green wall in the hotel’s main ballroom.

Supply Chain
All vendors that are a part of 1 Hotel’s supply chain are held accountable for their sustainability efforts.

BWB: Tells us more about some of the unique things the hotel is offering?

Each month, the lights in the hotel’s public spaces will dim for a candlelit evening.

1 Guide
1 Hotels has created industry-first technology that encourages real-time communication through its “1 Guide.” With the 1 Guide guests can communicate with the concierge, order room service, read magazines and newspapers and even control the temperature in their room.

Seedlings
1 Hotel’s “Seedlings” is a one of a kind kids’ program that creates a fun, memorable experience focused on nature, bringing kids closer to nature while educating them on the world we live in.

Dark Sky
Each month, the lights in the hotel’s public spaces will dim for a candlelit evening. Specially crafted cocktails at 1 Hotel South Beach’s lobby bar, Tom on Collins, allow guests to unplug for a few hours.
