Trump National Doral Golf Resort
Doral’s legendary golf resort was an instant hot spot when it opened in the 1960s, frequented by celebrities and icons of the day. More than 50 years later, the Trump family paired their enthusiastic passion for the game of golf with their long-standing reputation as innovators and visionaries in real estate to invest $250 million to completely re-imagine and restore the renowned resort to prominence. Ushering in a new era of grandeur, today’s Trump National Doral® Miami is an inspirational oasis of luxury and leisure where guests can pursue their passions and take respite from reality in style.
Donald J. Trump, president and chairman of The Trump Organization, along with Ivanka Trump and Eric Trump, executive vice presidents of development and acquisitions, spearheaded the resort’s transformation, ushering in a new era of style, service and exclusivity by applying the unwavering Trump standard of excellence. Completed Spring 2016 with the opening of the inimitable and all-new The Trump Spa Suites, the Trump family commissioned a team of highly skilled and internationally acclaimed architects, designers, artists and hoteliers to restore its guestrooms, public spaces, golf courses, pools, ballrooms and event space. Today’s Doral resort embodies the signature Trump sophistication while lavishly catering to today’s discerning vacationers, sports enthusiasts and business travelers, as well as locals seeking a tranquil and exclusive oasis.
The heartbeat of Trump Doral can be found in the completely redesigned clubhouse, the epicenter of the 800-acre resort. From guest services to high-end dining and shopping outlets, to breathtaking panoramic views of Doral’s legendary golf courses, an immersive experience into a world of luxury and relaxation at Trump Doral begins at the clubhouse.
Working closely with Wimberly WATG Interiors, Ivanka Trump personally managed the complete redesign of the resort’s guestrooms, suites, and ballrooms, introducing her own brand synonymous with quality, elegance, and sophistication into every detail; from the imported Austrian crystal chandeliers to the handmade Italian bed linens.
The resort boasts 643 guestrooms, including 43 resort suites and 48 deluxe spa suites punctuated with lush garden and golf course views from a private balcony or lanai. Held to the highest of Trump standards, each guestroom is paired with luxurious, modern amenities such as exclusive Trump Hotel Collection bedding and Pillow Top Bed by Serta®, Italian bed linens by Bellino and Nespresso Coffee selections. A panorama of outdoor vistas cascade across the horizon, reinforcing and amplifying the soothing and relaxing environment delivered by this South Florida escape.
The resort’s guestrooms and suites are located across eight all-new villas which Mr. Trump named in honor of golf’s most legendary players. The Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, Phil Mickelson, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Sam Snead and Tiger Woods villas are all steps away from the main clubhouse.
The New Villa Deluxe Guestrooms at our hotel in Miami, Florida were designed by Ivanka Trump in cooperation with WATG’s Wimberly Interiors. These hotel rooms feature a stylish palette of elegant neutrals accentuated with mahogany veneers and gold-leaf Spanish revival details. Furnishings and details include classic herringbone and geometric patterns, while vintage artwork will feature photos of golf legends that have either played Trump Doral’s renowned Blue Monster course or are admired by The Trump Organization’s chairman and president, Donald J. Trump.
As part of Trump National Doral Miami’s $250 million resort wide restoration, guests will now find all-new Deluxe Suite accommodations featuring classic gold leaf Spanish Revival details and sophistication – all polished to the highest of Trump standards. Paired with the most luxurious modern amenities, these well-appointed hotel suites in Miami boast spacious marble-finish bathrooms and a private balcony or lanai with awe-inspiring golf or garden views.
Art Du Cuisine
Trump National Doral’s culinary emphasis is on the use of locally- sourced ingredients, coveted aged spirits and edible masterpieces.
BLT Prime, the resort’s signature restaurant, is an American steakhouse serving the finest cuts of beef, including a 28-day dry-aged N.Y. Strip and a Kansas City bone-in strip, as well as freshly caught seafood specialties. Whether sitting in the restaurant’s elegant dining room or al fresco, guests can indulge in BLT Prime’s signature warm popovers while perusing a perfectly curated menu and taking in spectacular panoramic views of the iconic Blue Monster golf course.

Guests can sip, savor and sunbathe poolside at The Royal Pool’s Palm Grill. The menu features unique Miami-inspired cuisine, enhanced with Florida-grown fruits, vegetables and fresh greens. Refreshing meze platters, light and local ceviche, and crisp salads pop with refined flavors that pair well with sunshine and relaxation while premier organic fruit juices and herbs infuse innovative cocktails.
Just steps away from the resort’s legendary golf courses, guests find Champion’s Bar & Grill’s inviting cherry wood bar and comfortable red leather booths – the perfect refuge to enjoy traditional American fare paired with refreshing beverages. Nostalgic photos of golf’s most prolific players adorn the room, as well as magazine covers featuring Donald Trump that date back to the 1980s.

Chefs prepare freshly caught seafood, a perfectly cooked burger and tenderly seasoned vegetables on a state-of-the-art outdoor grill while diners enjoy the distinctive views and delightful warm weather.
In the style of a sophisticated French patisserie, the Marketplace wafts with the aromas of freshly roasted Segafredo coffee, pressed sandwiches and warm baked goods for those on the go. The Pastry Chef hand-makes six flavors of gelato and frozen yogurt daily. An eclectically curated selection of artisanal honeys, preserves, cheeses and charcuterie pairings complement the choices of fine wines available for purchase.

For The Love of the Game (of Golf)
Mr. Trump commissioned and worked directly with one of the world’s top golf architects, Gil Hanse, to completely restore four of Doral’s historic courses, including the famed Blue Monster, host of the PGA TOUR for 55 consecutive years. Originally, Hanse planned on returning the Blue Monster closer to the original design that renowned golf designer Dick Wilson created in 1962, but as the project began, and Hanse and Trump came to appreciate the size of the property – a massive 300-plus acres for one 18-hole course – it became apparent there were additional opportunities to transform the course. While many of the holes remained within their original areas, every green has been rebuilt, and every bunker has been moved and shifted. Twelve of the holes have had significant alterations in either direction or have had water introduced into the play experience. The most notable differences are numbers 15, a par 3 that now has a carry over water to a peninsula green, and 16, still a reachable par 4 but with considerably more risk as water can be found down the left side of the hole. The result is a revered renovation of one of the world’s most formidable and famous courses in all of golf.
The Red Tiger, Silver Fox and Golden Palm courses have also been completely reimagined, expanded, and upgraded to exceed player expectations for both amateur and professional golfers alike. More than 5,000 recently planted trees, plus the addition of five-acres of lakes, will challenge and reward every player on the courses. The driving range has been lengthened and expanded, and now features LED lighting system – the first of its kind in the world, a new short-game practice area, and 40 practice stations. The Jim McLean Golf School, renown as the number one golf school in America, has a new, on-site state-of-the-art teaching facility. True Spec Golf club resides next door, providing the ultimate custom-fitting experience in golf, once an exclusive experience reserved for tour players.
Golf operations improvements include a modern locker room and an expansive pro-shop that provides the latest in golf equipment, accessories and apparel for men, ladies and juniors. One of the largest in the country, the pro-shop is regarded as an authority in golf products, as they continuously carry exclusive and limited- edition items.
Splish Splash (It’s Florida After All)
Every oasis covets water. Guests will relax in splendor in the all-new Royal Palm Pool, the centerpiece of a recreational complex set within beautifully landscaped gardens and conveniently located near the clubhouse and guestrooms. The bathing area features a family-friendly zero entry pool, a serenity pool for adults seeking relaxation, a kid’s pool featuring a 125-foot slide for the young and the young at heart, as well as 18 decadent poolside cabanas.
Guests to the Royal Palm Pool are greeted by the Pool Concierge and offered an array of amenities, such as fruit infused water, 30 SPF Sunscreen and Aloe After Sun, reading material and swim diapers for the Trumpeteers. Guests also receive a Bamboo Amenity Box that includes two bamboo wicker fans, two chilled eucalyptus-scented face towels, two glasses of fruit-infused water and a two-sided service rock indicator. Similar to a “Do Not Disturb” sign, the rock indicator allows guests to request service at any time by simply turning it face-up to the “sun side.” Likewise, the “moon side” lets the pool concierge staff know the guest is resting peacefully and would prefer not to be disturbed. When temperatures rise above 75 degrees, Pool Concierge staff offer cooling delights that include a spray bottle of chilled lavender or lemongrass-scented facial and body mist, chilled fruits, drinks of the day, fresh fruit smoothies, and soft serve vanilla and chocolate yogurt swirls.
