Lush, richly appointed accommodations are the hallmark of the guest experience at Acqualina. Designed to offer a sense of modern luxury with classic furnishings and finishes, each of the 54 guest rooms and 44 suites present oversized floor plans and private terraces. Celebrated Miami designer Isabel Tragash and her team of designers imbued the new Acqualina guestroom’s design with their unique vision of a South Florida 5 Star, 5 Diamond resort. Echoes of surf, sand, and shimmering water infuse the new palette. The comprehensively re-designed guestrooms utilize a modern luxury vocabulary that includes zebra wood, walnut, champagne bronze and smoked glass. Textural high notes were incorporated through the use of chenille velvets, plush satins, bouclé’s and exotic woven textiles. The palette has been painted in sun-bleached hues of gray, taupe, sand, and celadon, which combined with gilded metals, brings a jewel like image. Chinchilla “fur” throws contribute an exotic touch. Glamorous detailing includes channel tufted walnut wrap around headboards, curvaceous pillow back sleeper sofa, and wingback chairs in every room fit for a prince or princess. Seamless multimedia integration anticipates the tech savvy vacationer, and the large format plasma screens complete latest guestroom innovation by Acqualina. Guests enjoy expansive bathrooms outfitted with imported marble flooring, double sinks, a bathtub and separate glass-enclosed shower, and ESPA-branded bath products.
