We chose Nautilus as our wedding rehearsal dinner spot because it was elegant, affordable and very Miami. After checking out dozens of restaurants on Miami Beach, we came across this hotel and their outdoor patio. We worked with Vanessa and Paola to plan our event & menu and they were both fabulous. They helped customize everything for us, including the layout and seat assignments. They accommodated 77 of us in the indoor bar & outdoor cabana area. They even helped us get a wireless mic for speeches. Paola especially was incredibly helpful and communicative in getting all the details right. It was magical because of her.Sent on 01/28/2019
Our guests RAVED about the ambiance and food the entire night. The salmon, pasta and donuts were true highlights. All of the staff were attentive and so helpful. The entire night exceeded any expectations. We highly recommend this hotel & restaurant for any sort of event, big or small!

We would get married here over and over again
My husband and I and our families could not be happier with the service, the friendliness and willingness of the staff to make our stay and wedding day perfect! Paola, the event coordinator was helpful in finding ways to always getting us what we were hoping to achieve for our wedding day, she paid attention to the details that mattered to us; she communicated well with our planner and vendors and everything went very smooth. Our guests were thrilled at how we were able to use all these different spots for our wedding entertainment, the food was delicious, the penthouse was a smart investment especially for having a family get together prior to the wedding and on the wedding day getting ready, having photos taken, etc. we used the bamboo walkway to do our first look; the rooftop for our private ceremony, the hotel bar for our cocktail hr, the reception rm for seated dinner for 100 guests and the backyard for dancing. Then the Cabana Club restaurant for after party drinks and late night snacks and our penthouse for after after till 4:30am for dancing the night away! Amazing time! It was great to have most of our guests stay at this boutique hotel and see them often, at the pool, the beach etc. giving us extra time with them. Highly recommends his hotel and venue! It is beautifully decorated and well designed.

My husband and I were married at the Nautilus in April and it was truly a wedding dream come true! Our wedding planner worked closely with Paola Uscategui who is the catering and conference service manager at the Nautilus. Paola is extremely knowledgeable, creative and precise. Every detail of our wedding was planned and executed flawlessly! Not once was I concerned, worried or nervous about events happening as they were intended. Paola and the entire staff were astounding, welcoming, punctual and thorough.
The Nautilus hosted us a few weeks prior to our big day to finalize details and allow us to ask any lingering questions. We sampled our food, walked through every event of our wedding weekend and got a great taste of what our guest would experience when they arrived on property!
Events started on Friday evening with a welcome reception hosted in the hotels GEORGEOUS lobby bar! Every part of this hotel begs to have photos taken in! Saturday was full of fun and relaxation with pool side cabanas, a live DJ, festive cocktails and delicious BBQ on the grill. Our ceremony took place on the roof top terrace just before sunset and it was breath taking. The views of the blue ocean, the cool sea breeze and the relaxed ceremony set up made for a picturesque wedding! Our wedding dinner was hosted in the hotels Bridge room which resembles a plush and chic library. The dark navy walls and amber candle light created an incredibly romantic scene. Once dinner was completed we were escorted back to the roof top terrace for an evening of music, drinks and celebration! Sunday morning a brunch was hosted on the pool side terrace to thank our guests and wish them well as they traveled back home. I am certain not one of them wanted to leave the tranquility of Nautilus that day!
If you are looking for a location to host your special day I strongly recommend exploring the Nautilus and all it has to offer!
