Romantic DÉJÀ VU : 80’s Style at Mayfair Hotel Miami Spins Miami Vice’s 30th Anniversary
Celebrate Valentine’s Day or anytime in Feb or March with this “Miami Vices” Couples Getaway that is rocking with the not-quite-vintage Miami Vice soundtrack!
The Mayfair Hotel & Spa Miami celebrates its shared 30th birthday with Miami Vice by orchestrating sizzling new packages for Miami Romance Month, featuring a soundtrack based on the 1980s hit songs from the TV show, designed to score the perfect lovers’ getaway.
“The Mayfair’s new collection of romantic escapes showcases Miami Vice’s groundbreaking use of pop music, it was the first TV program to broadcast in stereo and to feature current hit songs in every episode,” said the hotel’s General Manager Axel Gasser. “In 1984, both the Mayfair Hotel and Miami Vice debuted and became legendary Miami icons, along with the musical hits from Miami’s most decadent decade.”
While other programs traditionally used made-for-TV music, the producers of Miami Vice were the first to insist on using original music, spending $10,000 or more per episode to buy the rights to hit songs by contemporary artists. Having a new single played on Miami Vice was a boost to musicians and to record companies, and sparked a groundbreaking new trend.
Whether you rocked out to 80s metal mania, bopped to New Wave, or jammed to synth-pop and electro dance, you can soundtrack your own romantic getaway thanks to these packages that hit the high notes from The Mayfair Hotel & Spa Miami, honoring these beloved 80s hits from Miami Vice!

About the Mayfair Hotel:
The Mayfair Hotel & Spa is part of the Schlesinger family’s iconic portfolio of hospitality excellence, including its sister property the Brazilian Court Hotel in Palm Beach.
Heralding its 30th anniversary with the completion of more than $10 million in extensive renovations, The Mayfair Hotel & Spa is located in the heart of Miami’s historic “first neighborhood,” The Village of Coconut Grove. The boutique architectural gem is the only Gaudi-inspired hotel in the United States, an artistic masterpiece that blends Art Nouveau, Asian and Old World European inspirations.
The dramatic interior atriums teem with elaborate Asian gardens and fountains. Subtropical fantasias cocoon guests inside a private Zen oasis – overflowing with palm trees, orchids, tropical ferns and bamboo, birds and butterflies, monolithic columns and Tiffany stained glass ceilings. Hand-carved by local artists, the Mahogany woodwork and doorways, copper and stone sculptural creations are all one-of-a-kind (the molds were broken after the unveilings).
The Mayfair features 179 luxury suites, most with private terraces and Japanese Soaking Tubs (built for two), imported Brazilian doors, marble bathrooms with Roman Spa Baths, stone floors, sea-grass furnishings, hand-carved Mahogany headboards, and opulent details.
The indulgent culinary experiences at The Mayfair are helmed by Executive Chef Dario Correa. The Italian trattoria Spartico showcases a stone-faced wood-burning Ambrogi oven imported directly from Milan. Above the Mayfair surrounds the decadent rooftop pool and cabanas.
The hotel boasts one of a handful of Jurlique Australian Spas in America, a 4,500 square-foot holistic day-spa with sunlit treatment suites, a Couples’ Suite for dual treatments, and certified-organic products that are biodegradable and exclusively grown on Jurlique’s private farms in South Australia’s pristine Adelaide Hills.
The property is pet-friendly, has a 24-hour Fitness Center, 15,000 square-feet of events and meeting space, and offers a complete Business Center with complimentary WiFi in all rooms and common areas.
