Learn More About Our Beachfront Resort

Our guests routinely say that Acqualina is the most luxurious waterfront escape they’ve ever experienced, thanks to our personalized services, signature Mediterranean decor, sumptuous dining options, incredible ocean views, world-class spa, and expansive suites you’ll continue to dream about long after they’ve been dreamed within. Perhaps that’s why Acqualina is the most decorated resort in South Florida, earning a Forbes Five-Star Award for the hotel and spa for 11 consecutive years, the title of TripAdvisor’s #1 Beachfront Hotel in the U.S., and top awards from USA Today (including the #1 Best Destination Resort in the U.S.) and from U.S. News & World Report as the #1 Best Resort in the U.S.

A Grand Greeting

The magic begins as guests enter through gilded wrought-iron gates and ascend upon a cobblestone path. The pathway soon curves to reveal an impressive domed cupola and the first of many artisan-designed fountains. Guests are then welcomed through a magnificent gallery-style lobby and greeted by warm Guest Experience Managers who curate a highly personalized stay for each and every guest. 

Luxe Locale

Acqualina is located on one of the most world-renowned and aspired-to beach destinations on Earth, so our enviable location alone is often enough to create exquisite moments. Our breathtaking beachfront home covers 4.5 acres of seaside splendor. The grounds feature year-round outdoor living-room-style settings with plush furniture. Natural Paspalum grass sways alongside our signature red beach umbrellas and lounge chairs, which beautifully offset the blue and green hues of their natural surroundings. Guests are welcome to recline as long as they like and bask in the South Florida sun, or spend the afternoon shaded by old-growth palm trees.

Exceptional Accommodations

Rooms and suites at Acqualina go above and beyond other Miami resorts. They feature panoramic ocean views, premium luxury linens, and a range of high-end comforts designed to delight and inspire. Our suites are also the most spacious in the city, so you have plenty of room to stretch out and relax.

Acqualina Spa

No luxury escape would be complete without a world-class spa. Let the expert team at Acqualina Spa rejuvenate you with a full range of relaxing treatments, leaving you refreshed and revitalized. Acqualina Spa offers an array of facials, massages, and other bespoke experiences. Guests are always welcome to arrive early in order to relax and enjoy the outdoor pool, hot tub, and massaging waterfall.  

World-Class Dining

Acqualina is reminiscent of a luxury Mediterranean villa, and that ambience extends to our opulent dining and beverage offerings. The acclaimed Il Mulino New York brings renowned Italian fare to the resort, from fresh catches of the day to homemade pasta dishes. Avra Miami is a destination that transports diners to the whitewashed islands of Greece with its setting and cuisine where incomparably fresh seafood, vegetables, and hand-pressed extra-virgin olive oil are the stars.

For Japanese fusion, head to Ke-uH, where a diverse, eclectic menu of tapas-style dishes is paired with a modern, indoor/outdoor dining area. The resort is also home to Miami’s only restaurant that’s completely adjacent to the beach, Costa Grill, which offers gourmet cuisine, ocean views, and a casual, family-friendly atmosphere. A curated menu is available to meet a wide variety of dietary restrictions. You can also stop by AQ Gelato & Coffee, our new lobby-level destination for rich coffee and gourmet desserts.

Exceptional Experiences

Many guests at Acqualina enjoy simply lounging on the beach and soaking up the famous warmth of the Sunshine State. For those looking for more, we offer a wide range of activities on property, so there’s always something for everyone. Young children enjoy AcquaMarine, our biology-inspired on-site educational program. There, kids have fun with learning through hands-on activities that foster appreciation, love, and respect for the ocean. Families, couples, and solo guests appreciate our lovingly curated Acqua Experiences, available both on and off property to provide memorable moments. Swim lessons, painting classes, and scuba-diving classes are only some of our unique curated offerings.

Community Outreach

Acqualina is committed to the community in which we operate and in 1995 founded the Miami Chapter of the I Have a Dream Foundation. The Foundation empowers children in low-income communities to achieve higher education and fulfill their leadership potential by providing them with the skills, knowledge, and habits they need to gain entry to higher education and succeed in college and beyond. Each year, the principal owners of Acqualina, Stephanie, Jules and Eddie Trump (no relation to the former US president), host a major charitable gala where South Florida philanthropists join our Dreamers for a magical evening filled with dreams and opportunities ready to come true.
