Royal Treatment at Acqualina Spa

By Lane Nieset

A crystal steam room, Himalayan salt wall, experiential shower with cool Arctic and warm Mediterranean mists. The lavish Acqualina Spa is a destination in its own right — and one you could easily spend the entire day lingering in. Couples and girlfriends heading to Sunny Isles relax and rejuvenate with one of the spa’s signature Ayurvedic-infused holistic, restorative, and meditative treatments that blend the best of ancient and modern therapies (think balancing massages with volcanic stones, CBD-infused stress relief back massages, and moisturizing marine mud wraps — plus all sorts of collagen sculpting and firming facials).

A spa day at Acqualina is already an indulgent experience, but why not make this one even more over-the-top by reserving the Royal Spa Suite? Featuring a gold-encrusted private lounge, designer furniture à la Fendi Casa, and a crystal chandelier, this suite is one you’ll want to spend more than a day in. Great for a group of friends or couples who want their privacy, you’ll have your own mother-of-pearl-lined steam room and a rainforest shower for two. Relax with customized massages and salt scrubs followed by lunch, sweet treats, and a bottle of bubbly on the private wraparound balcony that shows off some of Sunny Isles’ most stunning views of the Atlantic.
