Miami, February 5, 2019 – With its world-class restaurants, curated amenities and spacious rooms and suites, Acqualina Resort & Spa is at the center of Sunny Isles Beach providing an exclusive experience and ultra-luxurious beach lifestyle. Acqualina’s personalized service and pristine grounds blend both luxury and convenience for its guests. Acqualina is blessed with a gorgeous beachfront location with 4.5 acres of seaside bliss. It just got bigger with two new dunes areas offering six additional outdoor living room settings for a total of 19 lounge experiences.  Guests of the Five Star, Five Diamond resort can relax along the dunes with sumptuous furniture on Seashore Paspalum grass and elegantly designed with Acqualina’s signature red couches, chairs and umbrellas for the ideal outdoor experience.  Beachside service is friendly and attentive and table dining by the resort’s seaside Costa Grill is also offered in the lounge areas.

To enjoy the new outdoor backyard, Acqualina Resort is offering a gourmet picnic basket bursting with delicious delicacies to suit every occasion. The hotel’s butler will carry and arrange the picnic and make sure every need is met, leaving guests only to decide where they prefer to be seated along the magnificent dunes.

Executive Chef Andre Sattler has prepared a plentiful picnic basket priced at $85 per person, based on two people sharing. Menu highlights include: chicken & orange salad with lemon yogurt dressing, Tuscan kale & black quinoa salad with pumpernickel croutons, Hawaiian tuna poke, petite crab cakes bites and honey & garlic chicken wraps. Guests will also enjoy imported and domestic cheeses, chocolate covered strawberries, pastries and a selection of fruits.  Champagne, red or white wine and still or sparkling water are optional, but not included.

Picnic baskets should be booked at least 24 hours in advance to allow time for preparation and available year round. There is a set-up fee of $30.
