Acqualina is one of the worlds great hotels. It is beautiful in appointment. The staff, and this is everyone is professional beyond any expectation. After a day you are greeted by your, name or happy birthday or happy anniversary as we were. Nee a towel, need a chair, need water, need anything and it is only a moment to be accommodated. Bath robes are the most luxurious ever. The restaurant in the building is first rate. Can make reservations ahead of time through OPEN TABLES.
You do not need to leave the building to be on the beach or eat.
One short coming, which I do not understand, the toilet seat is the height for a seven year old child. This annoyed me.

ESPA Aqualina is my go-to place to relax and escape. The locker room is beautiful and clean, the staff is warm and helpful and the therapists are wonderful. Plan on staying for lunch and hanging out by the spa's outside pool.

If you need a break from your phone and computer, this is the place for you. Bernard is the best therapist to work out all those knots in your shoulders and neck. The spa is beautiful and provides everything you need. If you don't go into the crystal steam room, you'll regret it. You should also have a pedicure while enjoying the beautiful ocean view and eating delicious cookies. I'm a spa junkie and this is the only one that I always come back to again and again.

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!
