Carillon Miami Wellness Resort
History & Story
The Carillon Hotel opened in 1958. It was designed by Norman Giller, the celebrated “father” of Miami Modern (MiMo) architecture. This architectural style, which was popular from 1945 through the 1970s, is modern and fun at the same time. It symbolizes a uniquely South Floridian vision of life, one that guests encounter to this day. The Art Deco sign at the top of the building is the original, and a city landmark.
Eventually, the Carillon’s light dimmed, going out completely in the late 1980s. In 1998, the city approved a massive redevelopment plan, which included restoring the original building to its former glory and adding two large towers on the north and south. (You’ll notice that the architects took cues from the structure’s MiMo style.) The project was completed in 2008. Canyon Ranch, an operator of wellness health resorts, came in to manage the property.
In 2015, the current owner, Z Capital, purchased the property and set out to revive the iconic Carillon brand. Carillon Miami continues to operate in the luxury wellness market, with further enhancements to the resort on the way. These upgrades are intended to make the guest experience better and better. Continuing his father’s legacy, Ira Giller is spearheading the renovation project.
The Carillon epitomized resort culture in Miami Beach after World War II. In 1959, it was voted Miami Beach’s “Hotel of the Year.” There’s a great photo of Miss Georgia 1959 posing by the pool, on a vacation she received as a prize for being runner-up in the Miss America contest. A glamorous night spot, the Carillon became known during the 1960s for its famous guests, lavish parties, cabaret shows, and big-name entertainment.
Completed a $10 million renovation in Dec. 2017, which will include significant upgrades to 13,935 sq. m. of the resort’s public and meeting spaces – Hotel Interior designer- Peter Silling & Association

Restaurants & Bars
The Strand Bar & Grill led by Executive Chef Stephen Ullrich, a Miami native whose prestigious pedigree includes a turn at Michelin-starred Seasonal in New York City and at Tom Colicchio’s Beachcraft in Miami Beach. Set in an open and natural, contemporary space with an expansive outdoor terrace overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, The Strand Bar & Grill serves seasonal, ingredient-driven, innovative selections that showcase South Florida’s organic community.
For intimate gatherings and events, Carillon Miami introduced two new private dining venues. Adjacent to The Strand’s outdoor terrace, The Wine Lounge unfolds as a contemporary option for private dining, able to accommodate groups of up to 30. Inspired by the resort’s Rat Pack era roots, The Tambourine Room, sets a retro-inspired scene incorporating original design aesthetics for a unique and intimate experience for groups and gatherings of up to 14. In addition, the space will serve as an alternative meeting venue for groups, with access to state-of-the-art technology to accommodate different meeting needs.
Located right off the lobby, the resort’s new Lounge and Bar features a mid-century modernist design inspired by Carillon Miami’s original “Tambourine Lounge.” Once a hub for bold-faced names of the Rat Pack era, the Lounge and Bar welcomes guests to relax and unwind with its vibrant menu selection of vintage cocktails and small plates.
Steps away from Carillon Miami’s beach, the reimagined Ocean Terrace & Gallery is the closest beachfront lounge in Miami. Boasting a nature-inspired design, the venue’s furniture and fabrics feature neutral tones throughout with subtle structural features ranging from a trellis overhang to a glass covered walkway. With indoor and outdoor seating overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Ocean Terrace & Gallery is the ideal setting for breakfast, lunch, cocktails and light bites to private events.
For relaxed dining, the Cabana Pool Bar and Seaglass Café are the perfect dining options when relaxing by the pool. Offering salads and sandwiches or frozen cocktails.
Lastly, the resort’s new Corner Store provides a perfect setting for morning coffee or a post-workout juice, with a grab-and-go menu featuring homemade pastries, salads, sandwiches, gelato and more.
