Where Miami’s Biscayne Bay meets the Atlantic Ocean you’ll find the ultra-exclusive Fisher Island, boasting the highest per capita income in the United States and a select community of business executives, celebrities, athletes, entrepreneurs and billionaires from more than 45 countries. The island is less than one square kilometre in size and there have been no new condominiums for sale since 2007, but that has all changed with the recent launch of the 6-star luxury residences at Palazzo del Sol.

Palazzo del Sol is a lavish, 10-storey retreat with 43 exquisite units ranging from 3,800 to 9,800 square feet (353 to 910 square metres) and priced from US$6.5 million to US$35 million. More than 50% of the units have already been sold and only one of the three chic penthouses remains. Residences in Palazzo del Sol offer between three and seven bedrooms along with all of the amenities and finishing touches you would expect on this island of the elite. Looking for a butler-staffed aperitivo bar, a movie theatre, fur coat storage or poolside cabanas for purchase? Look no further.


Accessible exclusively via a 7-minute auto ferry ride or on your own private yacht or helicopter, Fisher Island is a 216-acre private island resort community offering the utmost in exclusivity and privacy for the world’s rich and powerful. Access to the island is restricted to residents and their invited guests. Intruders are prevented from entering by the island’s 50 security guards and a 24-hour marine patrol service. The New York Times wrote of Fisher Island, “There are few tropical island retreats these days where one can be cut off from the world and still be close to civilization.”

Formerly the one-family island home of the Vanderbilts and later a handful of other millionaires, Fisher Island began restrictive family-use development in 1986. Since then, controlled development has maintained the island’s charm and exclusivity. Fisher Island’s standards for privacy, exclusivity and amenities are rarely achieved elsewhere in the world.

Fisher Island Club is a focal point of the island sanctuary, anchored by the former Vanderbilt mansion which now serves as the main clubhouse. Built in 1936, the mansion was designed by famed Palm Beach architect Maurice Fatio and is now home to cafés, a lounge, a snooker club, a library and a ballroom. Membership at Fisher Island’s exclusive club costs US$250,000, but when you sell your residence, 80% (US$200k) will be reimbursed.

Fisher Island Club recently completed a US$60 million renovation to upgrade its incomparable luxury and pleasures to better cater to its discerning clientele. Here are a few highlights of what’s on offer within the island community:


With the addition of two red clay courts, Fisher Island Racquet Club now sports all three playing surfaces that are used in tennis’ Grand Slam events: the Australian Open (hard court), Wimbledon (grass), the French Open (red clay) and the U.S. Open (hard court). Its 18 lighted courts rank this club as one of the world’s premier tennis facilities.


Surrounded by views of the Miami skyline, this par-35, 9-hole championship golf course was designed by P.B. Dye. Each hole is distinctive with several holes played around sculpted bunkers or over lagoons and lakes. Among the most interesting holes is the 390-yard, par-4 seventh that plays along Miami’s shipping channel where yachts and cruise ships sail.


Recognized as the ultimate luxury spa destination in Miami, the 24,000 square-foot Mediterranean-style Spa Internazionale offers a full range of health and wellness services and body treatments, in addition to a state-of-the-art fitness centre complete with personal training and aqua therapy.


Fisher Island’s private island lifestyle offers a high degree of privacy and amenities including two state-of-the-art marinas with over 100 slips: one residents-only marina and one deep-water marina accommodating yachts up to 250 feet. The surge-proof marinas located here are the only deep-water marinas in Miami, Florida.


Over one mile of white imported Bahamian sand line the shore to border the glistening waters of Fisher Island’s private beaches. For a break from the sun, airy and elegant white seaside pavilions offer shade and yet another place to enjoy the ultimate in tropical seclusion.



Perched on a 4.5-acre waterfront site, Palazzo del Sol promises to elevate the best of Fisher Island to a new level of service and exclusivity.

Palazzo del Sol is the first new residential development on the fashionable island since 2007. Inspired by the notion of connectivity between indoors and outdoors, space and light are abundant at Palazzo del Sol. The building was designed by Kobi Karp, a prominent figure in the Miami architecture scene, to morph classic and modern into an entirely new island living experience. With an update on classic Mediterranean style, Palazzo del Sol combines traditional refinement with modern aesthetics, honouring tradition while respectfully breaking from it.

Palazzo Del Sol’s indoor spaces, designed by Alison Antrobus and Ruby Ramirez and built by ASR Interiors, reinterpret the established concept of a palazzo. Geared toward clientele who are accustomed to luxury, the long list of amenities at Palazzo del Sol includes private elevators, immense outdoor terraces, high ceilings, white glove butler service, multi-lingual concierge service, a theater, a hair and makeup salon, a children’s playroom, a fitness center, a business center and unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean, South Beach, Biscayne Bay and Downtown Miami. Of course, all of the luxuries offered by the island itself are also at your fingertips. For those wishing to branch out beyond their super-lux sanctuary, the cosmopolitan treasures of Miami’s dining, cultural and entertainment districts are only a short ferry ride away.
