Rooms + Suites

Signature attention-to-detail.

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.

Set against Miami's tranquil ocean and stunning white sands.

There are three pools on property; two are for families (the Beachclub pool has a zero-degree entrance which is perfect for small children), and one pool only for adults. 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. Set against the tranquil ocean and stunning white sands of Miami Beach, Acqualina Spa by ESPA is an indulgent retreat for relaxation and rejuvenation. Experience the true pleasures of the world-class, 20,000 square foot facility, which features state-of-the-art treatment rooms, relaxation lounges, private and special occasion Royal Spa Suite, and magnificent outdoor terrace retreat. Embracing the legendary European Day Spa philosophy that each visit is a journey, your experience begins with their signature selection of Ayurvedic-infused holistic, restorative and meditative treatments for face and body.

An excellent option for cocktail hour and pre- and post-dinner.

AQ Bar is inspired by the smooth and sultry era of the Parisian jazz movement. The stylish interiors stimulate creativity and intellectual conversations while guests sip hand-crafted cocktails and play chess or backgammon on custom art-inspired game sets. Brass finishes, an antique mirror, and midcentury modern furniture create an eclectic vibe. 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.
