Valid South Florida resorts include the:
- S. Regis Bal Harbour
- W South Beach
- Royal Palm South Beach Miami, a Tribute Portfolio Resort
- Marriott Stanton South Beach
- W Miami
The W South Beach is a great hip hotel with multiple pools, which is a nice bonus. I’ve even been upgraded here to a Mega Suite here with a private plunge pool. However it’s off the beaten path for kosher restaurants.

The S. Regis is the more luxurious hotel and has one main pool and one adults only pool. You won’t need a car as you can easily walk from the S. Regis Bal Harbour to dozens of great kosher eateries! There are even restaurants that accept prepaid reservations for Shabbos or you can buy phenomenal Shabbos take-out food from Kosher Kingdom. Or you can eat lunch at The Shul’s kiddush in Bal Harbour that is so extravagant it was featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal.
On the other hand, I prefer the beach in front of the W South Beach to the S. Regis Bal Harbour, though none of Miami’s beaches compare to the better beaches in the Caribbean and Hawaii.
The S. Regis Bal Harbour is typically far more expensive than the W South Beach, but they are heavily discounting their rooms this summer.
Their winter rates can be astronomical:
Summer rates are typically less for good reason. The Florida heat can be pretty miserable in the summer. On the plus side, you can actually get into a nice kosher restaurant without needing to make reservations weeks in advance like you have to in January.
Rates currently start at $303 plus tax/resort fee:
Here are rates at the W South Beach:
