Acqualina is a one-of-a-kind property completely open to the sea, free of any barriers or boardwalks, allowing it to emulate a Mediterranean villa. With only 98 oversized accommodations – half of them oceanfront suites with full kitchens – Acqualina evokes a residential coastal ambiance. With three restaurants on property, including Il Mulino New York and Costa Grill (the only seaside restaurant in Miami), along with a pastry marketplace, foodies have plenty of dining options. As a luxury family resort, an added benefit for parents is the opportunity to take advantage of the complimentary, award-winning Acquamarine Kids camp for children 5-12 years old.
Clients are consistently impressed with the Acqualina’s attention-to-detail! With adjustments made for COVID-era travel, guests can expect temperature checks before entering the hotel. As an amenity, you’re given a care package with masks and hand sanitizers. Plus, there are plexiglass dividers at the check-in desk, concierge desk, and pool check-in (with a deck that has hand sanitizer throughout). As a final touch, the entire staff is wearing their Frette masks with the Acqualina Logo!Michael Schertz
Rooms and suites are designed to offer a sense of modern luxury with classic furnishing and finishes. Each of the 54 rooms and 44 suites presents an oversized floorplan, private terrace, 5-fixure bathrooms (with bathtub separated from the shower) and queen size sleeper sofas. In general, Miami Beach is known for having Art Deco buildings with small rooms, but Acqualina defies that stereotype from further north in Sunny Isles where its guest room product starts at 650 square feet. The rooms are extremely spacious, elegantly designed and perfect for families.Albert Valera

For those who want to squeeze in a workout, there is a large gym, and the team and can organize private classes, for instance, yoga.

In partnership with Fine Art Mia, an elaborate collection of original contemporary art adorns the walls of the bar creating a gallery feel. AQ Bar provides an excellent option for cocktail hour and pre- and post-dinner drinks. In addition to high-quality wine and champagne menu, guests are invited to enjoy the mixologist’s own creations such as Eternal Summer (vodka, fresh mint, fresh watermelon juice, homemade jalapeño syrup, lime) Mezcal Dreamer (mezcal, hibiscus flower syrup, cucumber, lemon) and many more.
