Right in between Miami and Fort Lauderdale is located the Acqualina Resort & Spa On the Beach. According to the Forbes Travel Guide, the Four Star resort and luxury hotel is designed like an opulent villa. The resort has a 30 story structure rising on acres of grounds. The highlight however is the private sandy beach which might not be available with the most expensive hotels. The lobby is very impressive with marble pillars and floors and ornate chandelier. There are a total of 97 rooms and their interior has been done in light neutral colors to give it a residential feel. Located on the beach the large windows provide stunning ocean views and allow in a lot of natural light. The resort has the best of amenities including the Italian restaurant Il Mulino and Four-Star Acqualina Spa by ESPA.
South Beach is Just 20 Minutes Away
There is a sense of space on the beach, on the grounds and in the buildings. It is not congested like the Miami Beach’s Art Deco hotels. It is located right on the beach unlike Ocean Drive. Collins Avenue is further south from the resort. South Beach is just 20 minutes drive from the resort through Collins Avenue. The night life and the shopping of South Beach is easily accessible from the resort. The period between March and late May is perhaps the best period to visit Miami as the crowds come in just after that. It is quieter in the resort during the period and you can enjoy sitting in the balcony of your room and enjoy views of the Atlantic Ocean, Intracoastal Waterway and downtown Miami.

Acqualina Resort & Spa On the Beach is ideal for families with kids. AcquaMarine children’s program keeps the kids engaged creatively.

A hotel staff will rush to you in less than 20 seconds if you raise the flag by your chair. You may cool off in any of the three oceanfront pools. You might even love spending the entire day in a private poolside cabana.
