With all the hawt hotels and re-brandings going on in Miami, we can totally understand why a more established hotel like Loews Miami Beach would feel the pressure to keep with the Joneses.

Make that The Jameses.

The James Royal Palm is moving in right next door to the Loews at the end of the year and it looks like the stalwart is preparing for the hot, young newcomer with some glam new additions of its own—like new cabanas.

Loews has recently undergone a big renovation (new lobby, refreshed guest rooms, an ice-cream parlor and boutique), but when we saw this construction in the hotel's backyard the other day, we realized that the hotel wasn't done sprucing itself up just yet.

El San Juan Puerto Rico is Bringing Back The Mancation

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, the mancation has returned!

Summer’s officially over this weekend. But you know who’s not all torn up about it? NFL fans. Fall means football—and all the eating, drinking, and male bonding that comes with it.

The folks at the El San Juan Hotel & Casino in Puerto Rico know this. That’s why, with the season kicking off next Thursday, they’re promoting their cabanas to football fans.

They claim spending a game day inside one of their poolside cabanas is the “ultimate mancation,” which, frankly, hurts our feelings. We too are football fans, even if we’re female. (Maybe they could have gone with “fancation”? Or, better yet, just done away with this tiresome -cation trend altogether.)

Janet Jackson Gives the Cabanas at the Cove Atlantis Her 'Feedback'

Where: One Casino Drive, Nassau, Bahamas

So you have decided to spend a few days at The Cove Atlantis in Nassau, Bahamas. We're guessing that money is no object for you then, since room rates here start at about $600 a night.

So why not keep the money flowing and thus drop $750 on one of the 20 cabanas that can be found both poolside and beachside at Cain, the adults-only pool and lounge experience within The Cove?

Celebs like Janet Jackson love these cabanas because they offer both beach and pool access, flat-screen TVs, Bose stereo sound systems, internet, full bathrooms and showers (no sand in your bathing suit here!), and a dedicated butler on call. We've seen the butler service on our trip to The Cove and literally, this person does not move from the cabana unless you say so.

And this apparently is the intention of the luxury cabanas. Says Jamie Mulholland, Cain's owner and the hotelier behind Surf Lodge:

Our luxury cabanas at the property are now being run like a mini-hotel business

To that end, Cain at The Cove has hired the former GM from Soho House, Guy Chetwynd, to be their own GM. Which is pretty crazy when you think about it. Too bad the $750 cabana rental fee doesn't allow us to sleep in it overnight.
