July 16-20 is Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim

11039052_792361807508949_3088887398097462599_oFew things are more iconic to Miami Beach than the sun and beach, so it is fitting that one of the world’s biggest events for swimwear is taking place here during the lovely summer season: Fashion Week Swim by Mercedes-Benz, taking place July 16th to 20th.

Highly prestigious and anticipated among the international fashion community, this event is based mostly in the historic Raleigh Hotel, though other events take place in locations across the city, including the exclusive Soho Beach House, the Standard Miami, and the SLS SouthBeach.

You will find nearly all the world’s top brands and labels, alongside many of the most visionary new designers emerging in the scene. Nearly fifty designers will be showing off their latest and greatest swimwear in the Mercedes-Benz tents alone; there will dozens more designers featured in independent satellite events across the city.

Among the many noteworthy designers featured are: Belusso, Ctoe D’Or, Gottex, Keva, Oakley, Sauvage, Zingara, and many more. Especially renowned names like Mara Hoffman, Roxy Pop Surf, Suboo, Wildfox Swim  will feature bigger tents to showcase their coveted creations.

And like any major fashion event, there is a lot more than the catwalk to look forward to. Miami Beach’s famous lineup of clubs, lounges, and trendy restaurants will be part of the mix, hosting any number of exciting events. Pool parties, world-renowned DJs, and maybe even a few celebrities will be some of the many things to look forward to.

The Z Ocean Hotel offers an excellent and accessible location near all the action of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim. Moreover, our boutique South Beach Hotel provides a range of packages, services, and amenities that ensure an enjoyable and relaxing stay during the four-day event.

From the intimacy and comfort of our 79 lavish suites – some of which include rooftop terraces and hot tubs – to the scrumptious offerings of our Front Porch Café, the Z Ocean Miami Beach Hotel is a vacation onto itself.

Coming to Miami Beach May 13th – Aqua Girl XVI

11149724_788775351200928_6580504974225362484_oOne of the nation’s biggest events for LGBT women, Aqua Girl is coming to Miami Beach May 13 to 17, and the Z Ocean South Beach Hotel is ready to help you make the most of it. With a variety of events spanning much of the city, our centrally located Miami Beach Hotel will be the destination of choice for getting in on the action.

Since 1999, Aqua Girl has grown from a one-night charitable drive, to an almost-weeklong extravaganza encompassing everything from dance parties on the beach to gourmet dining and more.

Despite all the sun and fun, the event remains true to its original mission, remaining the largest charity women’s week in the country: 100 percent of the proceeds go to the Aqua Foundation for Women, a nonprofit that provides grants, scholarships, and other support to lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community members in South Florida.  Your participation in the festivities will contribute to a very good cause.

Drawing women from all over the country and the world, Aqua Girl offers something for everyone amid the colorful backdrop of lively Miami Beach. These include the Aqua Rock, Sip and Savor Wine and Cheese Reception; the Aqualicious Pool Party, which offers cool poolside cocktails; and several nightly dance parties featuring the hottest hop-hop, house and Top 40 music.

Whatever your party of choice, you are sure to find it at Aqua Girl, especially if you’re staying at the Z Ocean Hotel South Beach. Located between Collins Avenue and Ocean Drive, we offer an excellent location near all the festivities. Choose from 79 intimate suites – many featuring private rooftop terraces with hot tubs – that are perfect for unwinding before, after, and during this event.

Our award-winning, LGBT-friendly staff will happily serve your every need and provide the ultimate five-star service. The Z Ocean Hotel South Beach guarantees a stay as unforgettable as Miami Beach Gay Pride.
