Miami Beach Resort Reveals Lobby Renovation

The independently owned and operated Trump International Beach Resort Miami will soon begin a complete renovation of its lobby. The resort is utilizing this time when travelers are encouraged to stay at home to upgrade and enhance its interiors. When the property reopens, guests will be able to experience an all-new atmosphere inspired by the resort’s location on Sunny Isles Beach.

Interior designer Carolina Keimig has been selected for the project. Keimig was the visionary behind the resort’s original lobby design nearly two decades ago. Drawing inspiration from the resort’s surroundings, Keimig’s reimagined lobby will reflect a light, exuberant and organic design that incorporates elements found in nature.
