As the city of Sunny Isles celebrates its 10th Anniversary of incorporation, the rapidly changing landscape has evolved from a sleepy sandbar to TripAdvisor’s #1 Travel Hotspot in the United States thanks to the recent development boom. New real estate, restaurants and stores have brought an added and appealing dimension to the quality of life here.
On the scene from the beginning, The Newport Beachside Hotel & Resort once attracted a steady crowd of more than 600 VIPS nightly, including famous entertainers such as Sammie Davis Jr., Tina Turner, The Platters and Jimi Hendrix among others.
Today, in celebration of its 40th anniversary, the hotel is undergoing extensive interior and exterior renovations that will provide more modern amenities for guests while preserving the nostalgia of the Newport’s distinguished history.
From the valet and lobby, to the restaurant, rooms and pool, 50 percent of the redesign’s inspiration is matched by 50 percent of the hotel’s preservation. Great detail is being given to reviving the carefree, smart and fun way to travel characteristic of years past.
Part of the Newport’s preservation efforts involves working with the city of Sunny Isles to restore the landmark fishing pier located on the beach behind the hotel. The owners of the Newport have offered to donate two million dollars to the city for the project. Upon completion, city residents and guests of the Newport could use the pier for free.
In addition, state and local funds have helped to maintain the beach, upgrade Collins Avenue and further beautify Sunny Isles with new brick sidewalks and palm trees. The transformation has been remarkable. We invite you to come see for yourself.
