Faena Hotel

Formerly the historic Saxony Hotel, Faena Hotel Miami Beach features 169 guestrooms and suites, all of which were designed by visionary Alan Faena. To make his vision come to life, he enlisted film director/producer Baz Luhrmann and Academy Award winning costume designer Catherine Martin to develop the narrative for what would become the essence of Faena Hotel Miami Beach. Once known as the “Queen of Collins Avenue,” the hotel reigned in the 50’s and 60’s as the lodestar of glamour, where Hollywood icons Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe and Dean Martin performed and dazzled the crowds, and it continues to draw people from across the world today. In addition to its stunning design, Faena Hotel Miami Beach is home to Tierra Santa Healing House, Los Fuegos by Chef Francis Mallmann, Pao, and Faena Theater.

Tierra Santa Healing House is a one-of-a-kind South American inspired spa with a holistic approach to healing, fitness and relaxation.

Furthermore, the spa recently debuted new programming, including Full Moon Meditation and a Family Constellations Workshop.


The 22,000 square foot ocean-front space, offers five multi-functional treatment rooms, two ocean front treatment suites with outdoor terraces, as well as two therapeutic rooms that accommodate a full range of experiences –from advanced beauty treatments to those uniquely designed for Tierra Santa, like the Sacred Warrior, which uses warmed herbal poultices and lapis lazuli from Chile to release tension, and the Palo Santo and Sound Bowls treatment, which was created to balance the seven chakras of the body and restore the natural frequencies of the mind. As wellness is central to the Faena philosophy, Tierra Santa Healing House spans an entire floor of the remarkable hotel.
