Flamma pairs the brisk elegance of waterfront dining with a robust menu of richly seasoned meats. Diners glide up via boat, car, or ghost horse to sup on the flavorful foodstuffs, with exotic entrees including the stew-like fish moqueca ($24), seared ahi tuna ($25), and Hawaiian pork chops ($19). More traditional steakhouse fare includes a center-cut filet mignon ($29) and New York strip ($27). Visitors with indecisive tongue brains will delight at the full Rodizio ($46.90) option, which merits entrance to a ceaseless parade of meats hewn fresh from the skewer to the diner's plate. This feast includes options such as brazilian sausage, flank steak, leg of lamb, and chicken parmesan drumsticks, which can be paired with selections from the eatery's vast wine cellar or sips from a carefully concealed flask of porpoise sweat.

Shula’s Athletic Club—named for Don Shula, the NFL Hall of Famer who coached the Miami Dolphins to a Super Bowl trophy in 1972—doesn’t find it hard to fill its sprawling 40,000 square feet of space. A cardio room with more than 50 pieces of equipment, a spinning center, weight rooms, fitness-class studios, and basketball courts spread through the facility, luring athletes for independent workouts and personal-training sessions. Dozens of weekly fitness classes range from calorie-burning Zumba workouts and Vinyasa-yoga sessions to spin classes that help students practice for the day they have pedal-powered cars.

The athletic club also accommodates older exercisers with aquatic aerobics and seated Silver Sneakers workouts, and it keeps kids busy with confidence-building youth sports programs. Young legs run over a new 60-yard athletic field or nine lighted tennis courts where kids whack tennis balls and low-flying hot-air balloons with rackets.

The burnt-orange walls of Parrillada el Gaucho echo the welcoming heat of the grills in the kitchen. There, steaks acquire charred stripes before they reach diners in several cuts, from rib eye to T-bone. Uruguayan-style parrillada meals layer impressive amounts of meats and garnishes on pans, often piling enough skewers of shrimp and crisp sausages for two. This traditional South American style of cooking typifies the warm, convivial venue, whose dining room is decorated with horseshoes and ranching artifacts. Though steaks remain its most popular offering, the menu also boasts entrees such as chicken parmesan and custom-mixed pastas, with housemade flan to bring meals to an authentically sweet conclusion. Party packages, late hours, and Friday-night musical performances conspire with tender bites, luring festive groups to tables without coaxing trails of confetti.

It's not uncommon to spot the head chef at 530 Ocean's Grill, cheerfully greeting customers as he strolls beneath the crimson umbrellas and leafy palms of the outdoor terrace. After waving goodbye to the party clinking glasses of wine on the upper patio, the chef heads back into his kitchen to craft the Argentina-inspired specialties lauded by reporters from Qué Rica Vida. Argentinean recipes, along with Italian and American influences, inspire a variety of tapas, steaks, and pasta dishes. The chef showers pizzas in housemade tomato sauce and Argentinean chorizo before returning his attention to the juicy Angus steaks sizzling on the grills. For dessert, guests fork bites of decadent regional treats, such as sweet flan with a cloud of whipped cream and dulce de leche cheesecake decorated in a sprinkle of Argentinean pesos.

Rare Steakhouse facilitates fine dining in a classic steak-house environment in its kosher-certified, 4,000-square-foot eatery, brandishing a menu of fresh meat, seafood, and sushi. Taking the helm of a raging wood-burning grill, executive chef Aryeh Goldenson crafts cooked-to-order entrees, such as the boneless rib eye, hand cut and wet aged for 21 days ($38), or braised short ribs, capering about in a bed of apple barbecue sauce for four hours ($38). Dive palate-first into pan-seared sea bass with a macadamia crust ($36), or sample sushi rolls such as the Red Dragon roll, a zesty blend of peppered tuna, avocado, and salmon spicy enough to lead a tango class in a pool of hot sauce ($15).

Set apart somewhat from the most boisterous stretch of South Beach, Miami Beach is famed for its pristine beaches and unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean. Sun worshippers flock to the area year-round to take advantage of temperatures that stay on the good side of 70 degrees, even in winter. The boardwalk, which runs the length of the hotel and down to South Beach, makes an ideal path for jogging, ambling, or reenacting moments from past games of Monopoly.Delicious restaurants boasting every type of cuisine—and every price point—abound on both sides of the causeway, but no trip to Miami Beach is complete without some authentic Cuban food, such as the medianoche sandwiches available at any local joint. Latin flavor seeps into the music scene, too, inspiring bouts of salsa dancing after a few rum-soaked mojitos. A morning-after swim in the calm Atlantic is a good way to restore equilibrium.
