Opulence and elegance are not words often used to describe the beach and oceanfront landscape at a luxury resort, but at Acqualina Resort and Spa, the 4.5 beachfront acres are nothing less then spectacular. The natural wide sandy beach affronts a shade dabbled manicured lawn, which is perfect for a late beachfront lunch, sans sun and sand. This classic property, a beacon on architectural modernism in Sunny Isles Florida, sets a very high standard for excellence. Standing 51 stories above the palazzo grounds and beach, Acqualina Resort and Spa’s is an oasis of the upmost luxury and the resort is stunningly beautiful from every vista. With only 98 luxuriously and generously appointed guest rooms and suites, most with expansive and unobstructed ocean views, and 188 residents, Acqualina affords guests both intimate privacy and lively gathering spots. In the richly appointed guest rooms and suites modern and elegant furnishes are sun-touched with the tone and colors of the Italian Mediterranean. The magnificent marble bathrooms of the suites are larger than some of the hotel rooms you’ll find in Miami, Beach.
Equally impressive is the Acqualina Spa By ESPA, a 20,000-square-foot compliment to the resort. The full service, world-class and award-winning spa boasts several unique treatments and indulgent customized multi-hour immersive spa experiences. The Spa is beautiful, the fitness center is state-of-the-art and complete with top tier trainers, yoga instructors and private tranquility pool.
Dining is memorable at Acqualina Resort and Spa. Noted as one of the area’s top dining spot Il Mulino New York serves stellar Italian fare in a classic Mediterranean setting. For romantic dining indoors, or outdoors on the tiered terrace with ocean views, AQ Chop House by Il Mulino is an exquisite spot. The staff at AQ Chophouse is exceptional and with their warmth, wine pairings and menu suggestions diners will long remember their experience. Located on the oceanfront Costa Grill is the perfect spot for lunch and evening cocktails. The beachside cuisine is anything but casual and the setting reminiscent of grand European beach resorts.
Amid Florida’s Riviera, Sunny Isles Beach is famed for it high-rise luxurious condominiums and pristine beaches. It is calm and quiet alternative to South Beach and refined and elegant in comparison to its southern neighbor. Collins Avenue is lined with high-end and casual restaurants; the beautiful Oleta River State Park and the upscale Aventura Mall are all nearby. Acqualina Resort and Spa is grand in stature and immense in luxury. Photography. David Lewis Taylor.
