Palmeiras Beach Club at Grove Isle Debuts During Miami Art Week

On Tuesday, December 1, Palmeiras Beach Club at Grove Isle celebrates a new name and a fresh look with the debut of its renovated hotel, restaurant, bar, beach club and spa.   Kicking off Miami Art Week, Palmeiras Beach Club will host 700 VIPs for a Soirée Blanche and a first glimpse of the new property and its extensive amenities, complemented by exhibitions from prominent Venezuelan artists Flor Troconis and Rafael Barrios.

Troconis’ exhibition, which consists of several paintings within the hotel, is a reflection of her passion for shapes and colors inspired by her travels, experiences and emotions and desires.  This particular collection of works is titled ‘Segmentos’ and is defined by a series of colorful and repetitive yet incongruent segments.  Throughout the beach club grounds, there will be works by Barrios who is best known for his geometric sculptures that manipulate the eye through seeing depth in flat sheets of brightly colored metal inviting guests to interact with the pieces.

Located just 10 minutes from downtown Miami, the Palmeiras Beach Club at Grove Isle is a hidden gem with lush, tropical landscape and panoramic views of the tranquil Biscayne Bay.  The newly redesigned property includes a boutique hotel with 20 beach-club styled rooms reminiscent of those found on the Mediterranean offering guests an exclusive and luxurious escape in an urban oasis.

The restored property offers guests and members alike vast amenities including a 6,000 sq. ft. two-level spa, a marina, tennis courts, a Tattinger Lounge Beach Club with a Perrier Jouet Chef’s Table for up to 20 guests (private dining), a Patron Tequila Lounge and a bay front restaurant with breathtaking waterfront indoor and patio seating serving Mediterranean specialties created by famed chef Alfredo Alvarez.  Guests will be encouraged to explore the grounds, while enjoying complimentary Perrier Jouet and Tattinger Champagne, Chateau Maime Rose, and cocktails courtesy of Absolut, Patron, and Greek Mastiha along with samplings of chef Alfredo’s creations.

Palmeiras Beach Club is located at Four Grove Isle Drive in Coconut Grove, Florida 33133.  For additional information please call 305.858.8300 or visit

About Flor Troconis:

Flor Troconis’s passion for shapes, color and paint are ignited by her travels, experiences, as well as emotions and desires ever since she was a child. Whether it’s exploring the alleys of Istanbul, probing marketplaces in London or simply looking down at the sidewalks, Flor has a paintbrush in hand. Without a spoken language, painting is her channel for Universal communication, bringing to light social issues and emotional triggers.

About Rafael Barrios:

Rafael Barrios’s geometric sculptures manipulate the eye into seeing depth in flat sheets of brightly colored metal. Adopting a sculptural vernacular, Barrios subverts the three-dimensional essence of sculpture by shaping planar sheets to resemble carefully stacked and engineered objects. Such works often appear in public contexts, such as Park Avenue in New York. Though positioned as sculpture, his work’s Op Art elements equally align it with painting, effectively blurring the boundaries between the two media.
