Distinguished & Dynamic: The Diplomat Beach Resort

The Diplomat

The Diplomat Beach Resort

The Diplomat Resort has it all—with impeccable service, amenities, charm, character and dining options.

It’s for good reason that truly ICONIC and exceptional hotels earn their reputation, and it’s a formula that is not easy to duplicate. For one thing, shortcuts on the journey to elite status simply do not exist. It’s the result of several factors, and every one of them is on display, waiting for you to experience and enjoy for yourself at the Diplomat Beach Resort in Hollywood, Florida. 

Let’s start with something that the hotel was blessed with when the first shovel went into the ground on the original construction—phenomenal location. The massive, sprawling resort sits on a plot of land that would be difficult to improve on, spread across the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean, just steps away from North Miami Beach. It is minutes from world-class shopping destinations that high-end shoppers flock to, including Bal Harbour Shops and the Aventura Mall


Depart the premises, if you choose, but if you decide to stay, the Diplomat Resort’s $100 million transformation that was concluded a few years ago makes it very likely that you can find all you want or need to do on the property.

The resort is part of Hilton’s Curio Collection, one of a select few upscale hotels in the brand handpicked for their character. The property is designed to be an all-encompassing destination, and the amenities, charm, character, dining options and overall vibe of this property remind you of the impeccable detail taken to ensure an unforgettable trip for all their guests.  

Any experienced luxury traveler will tell you that elite hotels have an almost magical quality about them that you can feel, and that is something that generally matriculates from the top down. It’s extremely pleasing to navigate throughout the property, which showcases the high level of detail taken to ensure a luxurious, relaxing and fun experience for every visitor. It feels like it’s in the history and DNA of The Diplomat Beach Resort.

The property is versatile and massive enough to house a large convention, yet quaint and kissed with almost a boutique-style vibe when it comes to service and attention to detail. Nothing feels overwhelming, and everything is within reach. 

Dining options abound throughout the property and are so exceptional, it’s hard to fathom that they are located in a hotel and not a stand-alone Michelin-starred destination in the heart of a downtown metropolis.


Diplomat Prime Steakhouse is an award-winning, classic joint led by Executive Chef Rashaad Abdool, a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts. The charm and history of this restaurant is felt the moment you hit the hostess stand, and the fine-dining experience inside rivals any steakhouse experience in New York, Los Angeles or Chicago. The menu features dry-aged beef, seasonally-driven seafood dishes and one of the most refined custom cocktail and wine lists in South Florida. The wait staff has mastered every nuance of the menu, and the decor inside showcases a tasteful balance of sophistication and a lighter, more playful and relaxed tone. 

Diplomat Prime Steakhouse is something that must be experienced. You’ll understand why it’s been a South Florida go-to destination since the 1950’s!

Other dining options include The Hotel Bar, Nokku, Playa, Point Royal and the award-winning hot spot Monkitail, which has won so many awards in recent years that it would take an empty hotel ballroom to showcase them all. In 2017, USA Today named Monkitail the Best New Restaurant in the U.S., and the Best Hotel Restaurant overall, an incredible accolade that reflects the reputation the restaurant has earned. Nokku, Point Royal and Monkitail are presently pending to reopen as this piece publishes, with a target completion date in early 2022. Please visit DiplomatResort.com for the latest updates regarding these venues.

The Diplomat Resort can accommodate an intimate weekend getaway as easily and effortlessly as a weeklong corporate convention.  There are a total of 1,000 guestrooms and 96 suites, many featuring stunning, magical and mesmerizing sunset views of the Atlantic and Intracoastal waterway that add to the ambiance and charm of the resort.

Tropical breezes year-round remind you that you are in South Florida, and the Beachside Lagoon and infinity pools will be beckoning you to cozy up to a lounge chair, one of the 25 private waterfront cabanas, or maybe just a towel laid out on the sand, steps from the ocean and the warm waves of the Atlantic.

The full-service, 15,000 square foot spa overlooking the ocean is a must-visit for optimal pampering. Water activities are available on the property, including jet-skiing, complimentary paddle boarding and ocean kayaking, and the Dip + Slide water play area that is a favorite for younger visitors. 

It is literally impossible to be bored during a stay at this resort. 

For affluent travelers that are now excited and ready to experience an uber-luxe destination that has something for anyone and everyone in your traveling party, The Diplomat Resort and Spa is an ideal place to visit, and the staff has been expertly trained to make you feel as safe as you feel welcome and catered to. 

This is a legendary hotel that takes equal pride in pushing itself to exciting new levels, and the result is a phenomenal destination that checks every box of what an elite hotel and resort should be.
