Acqualina Receives Three #1 USA Today Awards in 2020

Acqualina continues to garner awards and accolades for its stellar offerings and world-class service, and today has been recognized with three awards in the 2020 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards by USA Today making it the only hotel in the US to receive this distinguished honor. The ultra-luxury resort was named #1 Best Destination Resort in the United States and #1 Best Waterfront Hotel in the United States.  Acqualina Spa by ESPA was awarded #1 Best Hotel Spa in the United States.

“We are honored to be recognized by our esteemed guests and readers of USA Today with three top awards for our hotel and spa,” said Deborah Yager Fleming, CEO & Partner. “We have worked very hard to achieve and maintain a high level of excellence and I am so proud of our incredible team.”

A panel of experts partnered with USA Today’s 10Best editors to select the initial 20 nominees in each of the three categories, and the top 10 winners in each category were determined by popular vote.

In addition to the three #1 USA Today awards, Acqualina Resort is also a proud recipient of the 2020 Forbes Travel Guide Dual Five Star Award for both the hotel and spa for the eighth consecutive year and the 2020 AAA Five Diamond Award for the 12th consecutive year.  Along with these prestigious accolades, US News and World Report named Acqualina the #1 Best Resort in the Continental US in their ninth annual Best Hotel Awards and TripAdvisor recognized the resort as the 2020 #1 Luxury Beachfront Hotel in the US.
