ACQUALINA RESORT INTRODUCES NEW ACQUA EXPERIENCES
MIAMI, July 25, 2022 – The award-winning Acqualina Resort has been a luxurious seaside sanctuary where guests make lifelong memories and always discover something exciting to elevate their vacations. With its popular Acqua Experiences, a collection of highly curated lifestyle offerings, hotel guests can now enjoy Curated Childcare by itavi where parents and children are at the forefront.
An acronym for “it takes a village,” itavi was born from Miami owner Ayana Rodriguez’s own challenges finding excellent childcare when she and her family traveled internationally. The solution was to create and trademark an innovative childcare service for parents who want anything from a quiet date night to skydiving adventures, so their global, well-traveled children are just as entertained while they are away for a few hours. Carefully selected childcare providers are specially trained in the ivati Method™, meet parents 15-minutes before the scheduled start time, and lead children through dynamic programming that includes playtime, arts & crafts, movement, learning and reading.
“Part of the Acqualina program is a sustainability aspect,” said Ayana Rodriguez. “We might read a book about Miami’s marine life; we might incorporate an arts and crafts cutting and gluing activity (motor skills) to return to the book’s theme. Some children may never have experienced Miami before, so we might incorporate salsa dancing as part of the exercise pillar.”
With a four-hour minimum and up to four children per $260 session, Curated Childcare by itavi ensures parents are given plenty of time for their own R&R.
Other family-friendly Acqua Experiences include fan favorited Aquamermaid, available on Friday, Saturday and Sunday between 2pm and 4pm. The innovative class fuses monofin and synchronized swimming into a memorable one-hour core workout for adults and a real-life Ariel experience for kids ages seven and older who learn under-the-sea moves and techniques famous in the mermaid world. Kids ages two to seven can join the fun with Swim with a Mermaid and participate in games, swim time and photos with a real-life Ariel. In addition, kids can learn to swim in one of the most beautiful places on earth in a safe, professional setting with Oscar and his team from Miami Fitness.
Families who’ve always wanted to learn how to scuba dive can embark on lessons with PADI instructors from Squalo Divers, a PADI Five Star Dive operation. With the Atlantic Ocean as a natural muse, a new generation of Picassos can unleash their imaginations at the Painting Experience where they learn to mix acrylic paints, understand depth and effects and paint their abstract masterpieces on 11×17 canvases.
