Spa Living at Missoni BaiaPosted 03.24.2021
Miami is undoubtedly a bastion of glamour and sophistication mixed with a laidback lifestyle that affords relaxation to all who live here. From the warm breezes on the beach by day to tranquil evenings spent at world-class restaurants, you’re at the forefront of leisure. And there’s no place more in line with this way of living than the Edgewater condos of Missoni Baia, where ease and elegance take center stage.
From the moment you step into the refined yet opulent lobby to the time you take in the jaw-dropping bay views from floor-to-ceiling windows in these spacious and chic homes, you’ll be surrounded by serenity.
Luckily, residents of Missoni Baia also have the chance to level-up their downtime with state-of-the-art amenities that are designed for comfort and convenience.
Whether you’re headed out for some entertainment or just want to glow-up for a special night in, you don’t have to head out to get your glam on. With the on-site hair and nail salon, the glamour comes to you. Gather your besties for an “at-home” spa night when you rent out this salon that rivals any in the city. There’s no wondering how your hairstyle or nails will turn out when you hire your personal manicurists or hair team to pamper and coif you and your friends to your hearts’ content. We recommend putting together a playlist of your favorite “getting ready” tunes and having a bottle or two of bubbly at the ready for this exclusive indulgence.
But pampering isn’t reserved for special occasions. Make self-care a part of your routine in the 3,300-square-foot gym. Amp up your cardio on state-of-the-art equipment or in the private training room as you work out any and all tension you have while you look out onto the bay.
Are you searching for some inner peace? The best way to find it might just be in the tranquil private yoga studio—stretch, bend, and breathe your way to ultimate bliss any time of day. Then unwind poolside and lounge in the Florida sun or in the whirlpool spa. True Zen has never been this close.
Of course, there are times when you’ll need a little assistance to reach that Zen. That’s where the private massage treatment rooms are beneficial. Swedish, Thai, deep-tissue, or hot-stone—book a masseuse to soothe your sore muscles after a hard day at work or a long day on the beach. There’s truly no greater indulgence than having your body worked on without the added stress of driving to a spa. Once you’re finished, you don’t even have to head to your personal spa-like bathroom at Missoni Baia; simply use the private and luxuriant showers right off the massage room.
No matter what way you choose to relax, know that there are myriad ways to do so from the comfort of your new home at Missoni Baia.
Fine Dining and Fun in the Sun in East EdgewaterPosted 03.22.2021
As Missoni Baia climbs skyward and the move-in date approaches, future residents of these East Edgewater homes are beginning to scout out the local attractions. Edgewater dates back to the 1920s, when it was built as a bayside shopping district. Its modern incarnation comes thanks to a wave of construction in the early 2000s as developers saw the potential in the waterfront locale. Now, the neighborhood is home to public parks, fine dining, and luxury accommodations, as well as being conveniently located within walking distance of Miami’s hip Wynwood neighborhood and the Arts & Entertainment District.
East Edgewater finds its purest expression in Margaret Pace Park, an eight-acre bayfront green space with open lawns, a basketball court, and a dog park, all set against the stunning Miami Beach skyline. History buffs will appreciate the nearby Miami City Cemetery, one of the area’s best-kept secrets, which is home to the final resting places of many city pioneers. And, of course, running the length of Edgewater is Biscayne Bay, inviting boaters with its easy waters and access to the ocean.
Residents of the superlative Edgewater condos at Missoni Baia will move into one of the hottest areas for Latin food in South Florida. Colombian favorite Palo Quemao serves classics like bandeja paisa and empanadas cooked to perfection, while their cinnamon-crusted natas dessert is to die for. For a Peruvian take on seafood, locals love Sabor a Perú, where the fish ceviche is always muy bueno.
But not all of the food around Missoni Baia is picante. Beer aficionados will frequent Kush, the trendy burger chain in nearby Wynwood with a microbrew-focused tap room and kitchen. Fresh ingredients, beef ground in-house, and an eco-conscious philosophy have made Kush a South Florida favorite, though the range of exotic and tasty burgers hasn’t hurt. For an upscale night on the town, residents will head to Beaker & Gray, where world-class cocktails meet an internationally inflected menu, which includes such unique, must-try combinations as maitake mushrooms with yuzu and smoked jalapeño and classics like the Wagyu burger.
After enjoying everything that East Edgewater and its surroundings have to offer, residents of Missoni Baia will return to their luxury homes, set in one of the neighborhood’s tallest towers and graced with a suite of resort-style amenities that capitalize on the building’s waterfront location and the glorious Miami climate. Whether they’re soaking up rays on one of the building’s many landscaped decks, playing a few sets on the elevated tennis court, getting a mani-pedi in the private spa, or simply strolling along the waterfront, residents at Missoni Baia will get the most out of South Florida without leaving the comfort of their own neighborhood. So, why not reach out today and start planning your new East Edgewater life right now?

Get in shape without even leaving the building — no treks through the snow to the gym, and no signing up for spin classes or waiting your turn in a crowded weight room.
Every good workout begins with a thorough stretching session, and while you can do your foam rolling and calf stretches on the gym floor, why not take your warmup to the next level and head to the private yoga studio for some deep muscle work? A yoga mat is the only thing you’ll need as you practice your downward dog in this serene and quiet space.

You can even take a run or walk on the treadmill without feeling the Miami heat. For a boutique fitness experience, consider a personal trainer for the private training room. The best part of all of this? You get your workout while taking in the stunning 180 degree views of Biscayne Bay.
An often overlooked aspect of a workout is the recovery. At Missoni Baia, you can recover in luxury in the steam room or sauna. To truly indulge, hire a masseuse to knead your sore muscles in the private massage room. After all that hard work, you deserve it!
