Capturing the timeless charm of Italy’s iconic coastal style, Mr. C Coconut Grove is an elegant and glamorous destination evoking Italy’s golden era.
The interiors have been inspired by the honesty and materiality of a classic yacht, with high gloss timber panelling adorning the walls of the double-height lobby. The carefully layered style of mid-century Italy is evident throughout, as Murano glass chandeliers hang above a large-scale terrazzo floor in the reception lobby area, welcoming guests into the cool hotel.

Walking through the lobby, guests are invited to sit down on sofas and armchairs in playful and comfortable shapes in a range of soft and airy blue, white, and pink fabrics; adding to the cool look on offer that feels quintessentially Italian. A sprawling terrace, known as Il Giardino, can be accessed via the lobby and welcomes guests to relax and unwind under the dappled light of the exotic planting. A bold tiled floor draws the eye towards the covered tables and chairs, all designed with a mid-century style in mind and crafted from polished chrome and marble.
Bellini Restaurant and Bar sits on the fifth floor of the hotel with floor to ceiling windows taking in the views across Coconut Grove Harbour and the ocean beyond. Anchoring the space to its location, a terrazzo floor spreads across both areas and elegantly combines with the high gloss limed oak panelling and bar. Nautical elements mix with typically Venetian design, as a blue and white stripe features on the seating throughout the scheme, while above sit Murano glass chandeliers – ultimately channelling the feeling of a stylish Italian yacht.
Also on the fifth floor is the hotel's rooftop pool. Surrounded by cool terrazzo flooring, guests can chose between mid-century inspired sun loungers or roomier cabanas all decorated in tones of blues and whites. A casual bar area on the pool deck enables guests to kick back and relax whilst taking in the unbroken views of sailboats and yachts docked in Key Biscayne, located directly below the hotel.
In the guestrooms, teak panelled foyers with classic detailing provide an inviting entry. A sense of quality and focus on materiality pervades throughout, with tall leather-upholstered headboards in tones of blue combining with a nautical style dresser, desk and mini-bar. The rug follows a tropical palm motif and connects the interiors with the exterior of Miami, as each room features an al fresco experience with private outdoor terraces.
