Girls Just Want to Have Fun/The Ultimate Girls Getaway

By Lane Nieset

A bachelorette party or milestone birthday is always a good reason to gather the girls and celebrate somewhere exotic, but with Acqualina’s new Girlfriends Getaway package, an excuse for a trip could be as simple as wanting to soak up the sun together. Spend your days catching up over rosé in a private cabana by any of the three oceanfront pools (opt for the adults-only one if you want an even more tranquil setting) or at Acqualina Spa indulging in a relaxing treatment and soaking in the heated jet pool on the oceanfront terrace. There’s even retail therapy at Acqualina Boutique, if you want a new swimsuit or chic piece of handcrafted jewelry by TAI to remind you of your special time away with the girls.

The Girlfriends Getaway package is sprinkled with special touches like a luxe oceanfront room or suite, daily spa credit of $300, and a spa lunch for two, but you can customize your stay with other activities like al fresco painting classes; Acqualina’s local “photo biographer,” who can capture your time in Miami with Instagram-worthy photos; or a three-hour yacht cruise to a sandbar to swim and sip mimosas. Of course, you can’t leave without experiencing a gastronomic journey through the resort’s fabulous restaurants, sampling everything from Greek cuisine at Avra as authentic as you’d find in the islands to Japanese fusion at Ke-uH and classic Italian at slick, oceanside Il Mulino New York. And if you’re visiting in September, you can take advantage of Miami Spice deals with three-course prix-fixe lunch or dinner menus at all three of the signature eateries.
