Four pools, great Italian cuisine, a luxurious spa, 98 huge, modern rooms, and some of Miami's most attentive service – this is Sunny Isles' best hotel. For families looking for a relaxing beach stay, this a superb luxury pick.



On the heels of a complete room redesign in late 2014, Acqualina continues to raise the bar for Miami beachfront luxury, delivering a fantasy of modern Mediterranean opulence, with sumptuously appointed, striking gray- and silver-accented interiors, and expansive facilities. Oceanfront lawns recall Miami's famed Vizcaya garens; three stylish swimming pools (one adults-only) and a colossal 20,000-square-foot ESPA spa offer opportunities for relaxation; and the famed Il Mulinio New York restaurant is there for excellent dining.

Fodor's Choice



Acqualina Resort & Spa, about equidistant from both Miami and Fort Lauderdale, is a lovely beachside resort that offers a distinct European feel with its Mediterranean villa decor and terraces where guests can soak in the ocean or Intracoastal views. All accommodations boast a full sitting room with sofa, and when complemented by a roomy bathroom with an oversized bathtub and a separate walk-in shower, guests will have all the space they could ever need.

Forbes Travel Guide Five Star Awards 2019



Unrivaled luxury and sophistication are what sets this hotel apart from the others in the immediate area. This multifaceted resort is situated on the beach and has universal appeal.

Travel + Leisure


Acqualina, an elegant 51-story Mediterranean-inspired tower that mixes touches of Collins Avenue grooviness with Old World nostalgia, is Sunny Isles Beach's answer to South Beach. Baroque fountains, marble-and–gold-leaf columns, and grand chandeliers in the public areas evoke an opulent Venetian palace.
