The Great Escape & Romantic Oceanfront Dinner

By Michelle Payer

From beginning to end, the resort’s Romance Inspired Package is the ultimate pampering retreat, and as its valid until May 1, 2022, can be planned and savored like a fine wine. The stay includes a bottle of champagne on arrival, a special welcome amenity, breakfast for two and luxurious oceanfront accommodations. A two-hour couples Spa Experience inside Acqualina Spa’s oceanfront Royal Spa Suite with its gold-dusted mosaic tiles, private mother-of-pearl steam room, rainforest shower for two and private wraparound balcony is the ultimate indulgence. Rates begin at $2500 per night with a three-night minimum stay. Reservations may be made by phoning 305-809-8202 or visiting


Acqualina creates memorable beachfront dinners that take fine dining to another level on one of South Florida’s longest and most pristine stretches of sand. Exquisitely arranged tables are dusted in white linens while dewy red roses sparkle in candlelight. Surroundings are illuminated by glass lanterns, while attentive waiters serve a special Valentine’s Day/Month of Love menu of lobster cauliflower bisque, gulf shrimp with watermelon and fresh hearts of palm, center cut beef tenderloin, black seabass and a trio of sweets. The romantic evening is $220 per person not including beverages plus tax and gratuity. A set-up fee applies to all reservations based on number of guests. Beachfront Dinners are available Friday through Sunday for Hotel Guests and Acqualina Residents only. Reservations are required and subject to availability.
