Acqualina Resort & Spa cements itself as the quintessential luxury travel destination in Florida by garnering several coveted back-to-back travel awards. Today, Forbes Travel Guide officially announced that the resort has been recognized as a Five-Star Hotel, marking it the fourth year in a row that the property receives this prestigious, ultra-exclusive industry accolade. Properties who receive this extraordinary achievement are determined by those who demonstrate impeccable and flawless service, exceptional amenities and an overall superior guest experience. To further reinforce today’s exciting announcement, Forbes Travel Guide also awarded Acqualina Spa by ESPA with a Five-Star Spa rating. Acqualina Resort & Spa is only one out of four hotel properties in Miami to be awarded a Five-Star ranking this year, while the spa is one of three Miami establishments to receive this honor.
Acqualina Spa by ESPA has recently unveiled the installation of a new detoxifying Himalayan Salt Wall, as well as the addition of new treatments to the spa including the AMA Releasing Abhyanga massage, Thai massage and Optimal Skin ProFacial. The Sunny Isles Beach spa is also set to unveil a new opulent Private Spa Suite next month. In addition, Acqualina has produced a userfriendly, interactive app available at the Apple Store to further enhance the guest experience: a multigenerational travel concierge app aimed for families. Acqualina is also home to an immersive AcquaMarine children’s program and is set to launch a new arts & crafts program early this year. The five-star resort is independently and family owned and operated, distinguishing the property from other hotel chains who received the award.
“We are thrilled that Acqualina is awarded and recognized as a Five-Star property for the fourth year in a row which highlights our most important mission as a property, which is striving to deliver the most outstanding personalized service to our guests. We are constantly improving our programs, guestroom décor, spa offerings and user technology to deliver a seamlessly luxurious experience, whether they are multigenerational families or a couple visiting our hotel or spa,” says Deborah Yager Fleming, CEO and Partner, Acqualina Resort & Spa.
In addition to today’s Forbes Travel Guide announcement, Acqualina Resort & Spa also received the AAA Five Diamond Award for 2016; Acqualina has maintained this Five Diamond Award distinction since 2009. Each year, AAA reviews more than 28,000 hotels across North America and the Caribbean including resorts, historic inns and bed and breakfasts, where only 0.4 percent of all hotels achieve the AAA Five Diamond status. Acqualina was also recently recognized with a superior ranking as TripAdvisor’s Top Luxury Beachfront Hotel in the Continental US, which is awarded to the top 1% of all hotels on the site based on reviews and opinions from millions of travelers. The user-generated site features Acqualina Resort & Spa in an elite pool of the “Top 25 Luxury Hotels” in the United States. Finally, Acqualina has also been recognized in Andrew Harper’s 2015 Readers’ Choice Awards, showcasing subscribers’ favorite hotels and resorts worldwide. Considered quite an extraordinary achievement, Acqualina was voted the top global property in three separate categories including #1 Top Beach Resort, #1 Top Spa Resort and #1 Top Family Resort.
