ESPA always represents. It was our 27th anniversary and we were staying at Acqualina Resort and Spa in Sunny Isles, Florida for four days. You can't go to Acqualina without getting a spa treatment, so my first ESPA Body Treatment was the Body Wrap. For the last two years my "goto" body treatment was the Orange Blossom (which is amazing) but I wanted to explore the other treatments. We were gracefully greeted by Maria and given lovely tour of the amenities by Joseph. In the ladies changing area Juana assisted me and went the extra mile. She brought me a larger more comfortable robe and towel, also gave me a lager locker to accommodate my dress. Using the steam room, experience showers and saunas helped me unwind before my session. My masseuse Juraine welcomed me in the relaxation lounge and escorted me to the treatment room. The Body Wrap was very tranquil and calming, she was excellent in her craft. My husband's treatment was the Age Rebel Facial, this was his first ESPA treatment. His specialist was Viviana, he raved of her expertise and now looks forward to exploring other treatments in the future. A couple days later I returned for the Stress Buster mini massage with volcanic stones and upgraded the appointment with the Salt and Oil Scrub treatment. Juana greeted me again in the changing room as if we were old friends, it was very hospitable. On this occasion Abigail was my masseuse and after her soothing care and treatment, I was refreshed and ready to take on the world. Whether it is trying something new or sticking with your old favorites, ESPA body and face treatments will never let you down.

It is the second time I've been to this SPA and I loved both experiences. My fisrt was so impressive that I chose them to celebrate my birthday this august with a couple's massage with my husband. Staff is highly trained, very sweet and accommodating. Relaxation area is beautiful and confy (they don't have couples' relaxation room, though), we meet before or after in the pool, or together inside if we book the private room for the couple. You can relax by the pool and get lunch there. All the ambience is very relaxing and inviting. amenities are great too. Recommend and will come back for sure!

Forbes Travel Guide is right because ESPA Acqualina is a really Five Star. From the beginning, valet parking was great complement (free). All indoor facilities ( steam, sauna, ice, relaxation, shower...) were amazing. Outdoor facilities ( pool, heated jet, views... ) were terrific. The whole staff( reception, pool area and massage therapist) were so professional and qualified . In my opinion, ESPA is one of the best in Miami. I will come back asap. 100 % recommended.

Absolutely loved the spa. Great staff, very courteous and pleasant. Professional and very gracious from the front desk to the masseuses: we had a great great time. The pool, the lunch: it was a paradise.

My job requires a lot of traveling. Every time I am in Miami area I visit the ESPA at Acqualina. The 5 star experience starts already with the check-in: the receptionists are extremely welcoming and warm. After a delicious tea I am normally using the steam room first before my treatment. I usually book a simple full body massage for 90min and only with the therapist Sinisa. He is truly wonderful and allows me to fully recharge my batteries during the massage. After the massage I spend some time in the relaxation area. The cookies there are home made and one of the best I have ever had. You can also have a culinary snack at the pool while relaxing and completing the day! Always a to-go for me and missed when I am not around.
