Acqualina is Awarded Dual Five Stars by Forbes Travel Guide for the Second Consecutive Year

Acqualina Resort & Spa Celebrates Coveted Ranking with Five-Star Experience Package

Sunny Isles Beach, FL – (January 22, 2014) – Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach and Acqualina Spa by ESPA are the recipients of the highest honors in the hospitality industry for the second consecutive year. Forbes Travel Guide today unveiled its official 2014 Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating list, bestowing both Acqualina Resort and Acqualina Spa by ESPA with the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Award.

“We are honored to receive the Forbes Five-Star Awards for our resort and our spa for the second year in a row and to be recognized by the definitive standard of excellence in luxury travel,” said Deborah Yager Fleming, Acqualina Resort & Spa's Vice Chairman and Principal. “The Forbes Five-Star Rating is such a coveted one because it confirms the ongoing exceptional work of our team members to deliver excellence at every opportunity to our guests.”

As attention to detail, design concept and quality of product are among the most prominent features of a Five-Star property, Acqualina Resort & Spa continues to invest in each of those areas. Acqualina recently celebrated the addition of two high profile team members essential to the luxury guest experience, internationally regarded hospitality executive Tamir Kobrin as Managing Director and award-winning Celebrity Chef Dewey LoSasso as Executive Chef.

Forbes Travel Guide, founded in 1958 as Mobil Travel Guide, dispatches a team of professional incognito inspectors and editors around the world in search of the best hotels, restaurants and spas. Forbes Travel Guide rates and recommends each hotel, restaurant and spa through anonymous, rigorous testing of every aspect of a property’s experience.

“Our Star Ratings recognize the finest hotels, restaurants and spas in the world. These ratings serve as guideposts for consumers seeking exceptional travel experiences, and our primary mission is to serve the consumer,” said Michael Cascone, President of Forbes Travel Guide. “We’re proud to be associated with the new additions to our global list.”

In celebration of its latest accolade, Acqualina Resort & Spa is proud to offer its Five-Star Experience Package, available starting today (January 22).
