A Holiday Away

Dine, Lifestyle, Live, Miami, Stay, Wellness

Roll out the red carpet for your family this holiday season in Faena’s dreamy collection of suites or the exclusive two-story penthouse with unrivaled views of Miami Beach.


Perfectly set up for families, kids from six to sixteen can make lasting holiday memories at Faena Play. Thanksgiving will bring a host of new activities rooted in art, culinary, theater, sports, and wellness experiences that will be on offer throughout the holidays. Budding chefs can shadow our culinary team in the kitchen to decorate cookies and cupcakes, make an ice cream sundae, and learn how to prepare pizza and pasta. Or they can spend an afternoon with Faena mixologists to stir, shake and pour delicious mocktails with unique flavors or blend tropical smoothies with locally sourced ingredients.

It’s never too early for kids to learn the art of self-care. At the spa, kids can take super brain yoga classes and learn how to play with prana in therapeutic energy sessions led by expert therapists. On the beach, sandcastle building, beach bubbles and art projects make for a fun afternoon in the sun, as do friendly volleyball competitions, cornhole tournaments and limbo contests. Take over one of Faena’s multibedroom suites with dreamy ocean views and wrap-around terraces to enjoy the blissful salty breezes that roll off the Atlantic this time of year. Suites come with spacious living rooms and six-seat dining tables where the family can gather for private meals, enjoy holiday movies and spend quality time with one another.

Decadent festive feasts can be had at Los Fuegos, where live-fire cooking reigns supreme, or at Pao, where Asian twists on traditional holiday meals take guests on a sybaritic journey through a menu of unexpected flavors. In the evenings, kids can head to the screening room for pajamas-and-popcorn movie nights and enjoy post-flick hot chocolate and ‘smores, while parents let loose with craft cocktails and live music performances in the Living Room or catch Faena Theater’s latest show Allura, a multiverse of Miami brought to life through the showstopping vocals of Rocky Lanes and Cuban guitarist Alberto Torres.
