Average time to visit
Miami is a year-round destination but summers can be hot and humid and September and October have a slight risk of hurricanes. Ideal conditions exist between December and May, when temperatures average between 16°C and 30°C, and average rainfall is a mere 2.14in per month. Summer is very hot and humid, with thunderstorms rolling in at 3pm or 4pm. August is both the rainiest and hottest month – and there’s always the chance of hurricanes.
To start planning your holiday to Faena Hotel Miami Beach
Opulent and contemporary with a nod to Miami's Art Deco roots, the Faena Miami emanates the golden age of glamour and dazzles with its eclectic collection of art, luxurious furnishings and picturesque setting right on the iconic Miami Beach.

The Tierra Santa Healing House spa also harks back to South America and is the first of its kind in Miami; utilising a range of ancient healing techniques and indigenous ingredients sourced from the Amazon, the traditional treatments will leave you feeling completely rejuvenated. Pamper yourself with a visit to the Rossano Ferretti Salon or simply unwind in the herbal steam room, hammam or ice parlour for a refreshing and indulgent experience.
