The Suite Life

By Michelle Payer

If Acqualina is meant to feel like home, then a stay in one of its 38 oceanfront two-bedroom or four three-bedroom suites is a luxurious indulgence that serves as the ultimate escape from everyday life.  At a minimum of 2,035 square feet (189.1 square meters), these suites are large enough to accommodate seven adults, or five adults and three children, for a perfect family or couples getaway that leaves nothing to be desired. Now entirely renovated, the suites are more luxurious than ever, with custom finishes, furniture and accessories designed in concert with STA Architectural Group and Ideal Casa’s Virgilio Mariano.

The expansive ocean view master bedroom and intracoastal-view second bedroom (both with king beds) are outfitted with new, soft-as-silk linens, including a duvet cover with champagne trim and Euro shams with Acqualina’s signature “A.”  The living room houses additional discreet sleeping options with a sophisticated, yet practical, Italian-made Miami Sofa Bed that features a cleverly hidden opening mechanism. Glass-topped bronze metal end tables, solid wood Tub chairs, curved oak bar stools and an elegant dining table with leather-stitched column create sophisticated, yet comfortable surroundings, punctuated by luxurious suspender lounge chairs crafted in Spain. Full gourmet kitchens were designed for glamorous evenings in, with built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, Italian cabinets, microwave, dishwasher, stainless steel sink and garbage disposal, elegant Lapitec Stone Bianco Vittoria kitchen counters, LED high-hats and Everest chandeliers. Bathrooms feature Italian marble floors, separate glass-enclosed couples showers, white Vena Oro marble vanities, double sinks, LED-lit Italian sconces, new plush bathrobes, ESPA bath and Lady Primrose after-sun products, elegant makeup mirrors, new Boca Terry white robes and white slippers for an ultra-luxurious en-suite experience – all with a spectacular ocean view.

Inspired to write the great American novel? The suite features a convertible den with a writing desk and twin bed, perfect for an afternoon siesta. With ocean views from every room, it might be tough to return to reality, so tuck in and stay awhile. After all, this is your home.
