Acqualina Resort and Spa

17875 Collins Avenue, Sunny Isles Beach

Acqualina Resort and Spa is recognized as one of the best luxury family resorts in the country for families with kids of all ages. Sitting on 4.5 acres of prime Florida beachfront real estate on Sunny Isles Beach, just north of Miami, Acqualina offers families truly exceptional indoor and outdoor facilities for age-appropriate alone and together time. The 98 oceanfront rooms and suites, as well as 188 residences, come in a variety of sizes. All are well-appointed with elegant living spaces and luxurious bathrooms; some larger suites have full gourmet kitchens. Many of Acqualina’s accommodations have jaw-dropping ocean views. Multiple swimming pools, indoor and outdoor games for children and a 20,000-square-foot spa are just a few of the options for resort vacation bliss. The Acquamarine Children’s Program pairs marine biology-themed education with fun for children 5 to 12. Onsite dining includes fine and casual options. Service is exquisite. Multigenerational families who have experienced Acqualina Resort and Spa return again and again. For good reason!
