By Elite Traveler | August 7 2020
Situated in the northern fringes of Miami, Acqualina sits on four-and-a-half beachfront acres with 400 feet of stunning Florida coastline. Featuring a design reminiscent of a Mediterranean villa, and with the sophistication that goes with it, Acqualina is the perfect destination for those looking to get away from the city. The endless marble, Spanish tile and limestone, and golden chandeliers leave guests in no doubt that they are in luxury accommodation.
The resort contains 98 impeccable rooms and suites. Most floors have a maximum of five rooms so all of them are generously spaced. They also come with balconies with views of either the Atlantic Ocean or the Intracoastal waters.
Acqaulina’s dining options are well established with two fine restaurants. Il Mulino New York serves accomplished Italian food in an intimate setting while AQ Chop House is a modern steakhouse with ocean views. The hotel also boasts a world-class spa by ESPA with a host of fantastic treatments and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
The Grand Deluxe Three-Bedroom Oceanfront Suite is located on the 32nd floor and features sweeping views of the Atlantic Ocean and Miami skyline. Guests enter the suite through an opulent foyer with marble flooring and three round mirrored sconces.
The suite’s expansive living room boasts a queen sofa sleeper and an antique brass coffee table, making it a sophisticated place to relax. The dining area has a Ralph Lauren Baxter metal shade chandelier, bay window and floor-to-ceiling views of the ocean, two bar stools and dining table for four people.
