Fresh Air Havens

Keep your attendees safe and busy at these four fresh air havens.

Mondrian South Beach Miami

With a grand reopening slated for November, the beachfront property underwent a full design refresh, from 220 guest rooms and common spaces to the members-only Baia Beach Club. Aesthetic touches using natural materials take inspiration in famous coasts from Greek Islands to Tulum, Mexico. Upgrades include an outdoor prefunction area and new enclosed poolside space with bayfront views as part of the hotel’s 25,000 sq. ft of flexible event space.

Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort Spa and Casino

Amid multimillion dollar renovations, the beachfront resort in Noord seamlessly integrated new outdoor options for events. For dining al fresco, Dos Playa Deck now features Dining Under the Stars, where three-course meals are served between pool and beach. The deck is also event ready, part of an additional 10,000 sq. ft. of outdoor space to bolster the property’s original 33,000 sq. ft.

The Mission San Juan Capistrano, California

This newly opened property features 125 hacienda-style guest rooms and 40,000 sq. ft. of indoor/outdoor meeting space. Keep things fresh on the manicured East Lawn or host up to 200 attendees in the Olive Grove beneath fruit-bearing trees. For indoor gatherings, choose from 18 event rooms styled with Spanish flair befitting the historic town where the swallows return yearly.

Hotel Vin Autograph Collection, Grapevine, Texas

This brand-new stay boasts 20,000 sq. ft. of indoor event space, as well as a 38,000-square-foot outdoor plaza, with 120 luxurious rooms for overnight guests. A hotel named “Vin” wouldn’t be complete without a temperature-controlled tasting spot called The Riedel Room. A unique draw for events is connection to a European-style food hall.
