Life House Little Havana Opens

Now open – 33 Rooms

The first tangible embodiment of the Life House ethos comes in the shape of Life House, Little Havana. Newly opened and housed in a historic 1920s mansion in Miami’s Cuban heart, the 33-room hotel is a visual encomium to its locale. From the dusty peach tones of the Mission Style façade—selected to complement the hues of neighboring houses—to the gallery space dedicated to Cuban artist Leandro Feal, every element has been mindfully crafted to pay homage to the area’s cultural roots. The collaborative vision of the interiors are defined by guava pink, rich jade, and earthen sienna juxtaposed with natural woods and simple cream lines. Monochrome-checked flooring typical of a Havana mansion and ceilings inspired by the overdyed magenta-hued wood of local market boards are complemented by Art Deco details salvaged from the original structure.

The 33 guest rooms and suites feature Le Labo bathroom amenities, Marshall speakers, rainfall showers, and a mixture of vintage and custom furniture. As to be expected of a hotel with community at the heart of its narrative, the social spaces are the highlight of Life House, Little Havana. The layout of the living room-style lobby and library is inviting and inclusive, while the expansive three-story atrium gallery acts as an immersive introduction to Little Havana’s artistic identity. The hotel plays host to a secret garden style courtyard, providing a lush outdoor oasis with a Havana ambiance. Exploring Cuban gastronomic roots, the vegetable forward café and bar and restaurant offer Latin infused foods and color palettes. The rooftop will feature a food forest from which ingredients will be sourced and used throughout the hotel’s menus. Opening in March, the crowning space Terras overlooks the Miami skyline from a jungle canopy-like perch, further cementing the hotel’s relationship with its surroundings.

In keeping with its technology-led approach, Life House fosters connections outside of the physical sphere with a social network of travelers that facilitates guest engagement from the moment of booking. This network forms part of a fully-integrated propriety technology platform that allows for seamless direct bookings for individuals and groups, streamlined operations, and unrivalled in and out of room connectivity.
