Sunny Isles Beach, February 12, 2020 – Acqualina Resort & Residences cements itself as the quintessential luxury travel destination in Florida by garnering several coveted back-to-back travel awards. Today, Forbes Travel Guide officially announced that Acqualina has been recognized as a Five Star Hotel, making it the eighth year in a row the property receives this prestigious, ultra-exclusive industry accolade.
