Set on 600 linear feet of oceanfront, the Roney Palace boasts three oceanfront swimming pools and beach service. The 50,000 square-foot pool deck is elevated above ground level providing mesmerizing infinity views of the ocean. Conceived by renowned New York-based architecture firm Meyer Davis, the poolscape is designed in a series of vignettes made of reclaimed ipe wood from the former Miami Beach boardwalk with shady palms and seagrape trees.
The Main Pool is a vast rectangular oasis with lily pad-like lounges seemingly floating on the surface. You'll find a variety of cabanas and lounge chairs here, as well as the pool's main Sandbox restaurant with a bar, tables and cushy lounges where you can dip your toes in the sand and enjoy fresh coastal fare. There's also an oversized hot tub, yoga deck and cement ping-pong table.
One level below the Main Pool, the Cabana Pool is a long, narrow pool where you'll find cabanas, daybeds and lounge chairs, as well as a bar with shaded tables and seating. It feels like a secluded VIP section, but everyone at Roney Palace and 1 Hotel has access.
The South Pool is the first pool you encounter as a Roney Palace resident, accessible at the mezzanine level. Here, a pool attendant awaits with fresh towels and chilled water infused with citrus fruit. You'll also find servers with menus from two restaurants, The Sandbox and Plnthouse. Lounge chairs and umbrellas line the pool and they're also tucked into landscaped nooks for extra privacy.
While the rooftop pool is reserved for guests of 1 Hotel, residents of the Roney Palace can enjoy the views, cocktails and sushi from onsite Watr restaurant. The rooftop pool was designed by New York-based Nikola Gradisinki of NGNY with white upholstered cabanas, lounge chairs and overstuffed sofas lining the long, narrow pool.
Before reaching the beach beyond the property's gates, a labyrinthine, landscaped private oasis awaits at 1 Beach Club. Lounge beneath the seagrape trees or indulge in Mediterranean cuisine.
On the sands of South Beach, Roney Palace residents enjoy complimentary towels provided by dedicated beach attendants, as well as the option to rent beach chairs and umbrellas for $10 each or a $300/month membership.
