Frequently Asked Questions

Reminiscent of a Mediterranean villa with its leisure-focused lifestyle and grand design, Acqualina is South Florida’s only five-star hotel of its kind to be built completely open to the ocean, free of barriers between the 51-story tower, featuring 98-luxury rooms and 188 lavish residences, and its 400 feet of glistening Atlantic shoreline. Upon arrival at Acqualina Resort & Spa, guests of the 98 room retreat are immediately transported from a bustling cityscape as they enter through stately iron gates that usher upwards to a grand porte-cochere. Distinctive architectural features, such as Baroque fountains and sculpted archways, offer a calming sense of departure from the outside world.
