Just take a moment to imagine the crystal blue waters of the ocean glistening on sparkling white sand, with waves and subtle wind beautifully harmonizing the tune to an unforgettable day. You’re facing the Atlantic Ocean and behind you sits your family and friends rejoicing over the memory you will all share at the setting of a Tuscan-inspired villa. You’re at Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach.
Situated between Fort Lauderdale and Miami on the pristine white sandy beaches of Sunny Isles, Acqualina Resort & Spa on the Beach is an enchanting Mediterranean villa with an atmosphere that embodies the spirit of luxury, serenity and enjoyment. Located on 4.5 beachfront acres with 400 feet of stunning Atlantic Ocean coastline, the luxury Miami hotel features 98-luxury rooms and 188 lavish residences, a 20,000 s.f. ESPA oceanfront spa, three oceanfront dining areas including the acclaimed Il Mulino New York restaurant, three oceanfront swimming pools and an innovative marine biology-based AcquaMarine children’s program.
The resort is Florida’s most elite beach destination venue for couples from all around the world. The intimate, 98-room resort is situated directly on the beach and provides its wedding guests with the option to host their celebration in the sand, on the luscious greenery of one of their beachfront lawns or in their indoor, air-conditioned Mediterranean Room. The stunningly-decorated and award-winning resort provides bridal couples with the affinity to indulge their every desire for an entire weekend celebration.
One of Acqualina’s greatest advantages, of which there are many, is their 1,746 sq. ft. Front Lawn. Almost impossible to find, brides and grooms can exchange vows with the majestic ocean setting as their background with the elegance of the green lawn as their ceremony stage.
The Great Lawn and Recreation Pool are two wonderful outdoor reception options with open areas that are ideal whether for an intimate affair or a lavish fete. The Great Lawn makes for a wonderful tented reception with the ocean in full view and only footsteps away. The Recreational Pool sits perfectly under the stars and the poolside cabanas along the perimeter can be used as lounge areas or serving stations. The pool can even be turned into a dance floor giving your guests an illusion that they’re swaying on water all through the night.
The Mediterranean Room is the indoor venue with an ocean view that has the capability to be converted into three separate rooms or can also be extended into one large room. A balcony terrace wraps around the Mediterranean Room with French doors that lead out to the fresh ocean air and a breathtaking view.
The essence of a Tuscan Villa in Florida sets itself for impressive photographs to capture the entire day. Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, the award-winning family and AAA five-diamond resort will surely awe you and your guests throughout the big day.
