America's Best Coastal Hotels

No. 30 Acqualina, Miami Beach, FL
Sunny Isles is North Miami’s rapidly developing answer to South Beach, and Rosewood Hotels & Resorts stepped into the skyscraping fray with Acqualina, a grand 97-room Mediterranean-inspired tower that mixes touches of Collins Avenue grooviness with old-world nostalgia.
Room to Book: The two- and three-bedroom suites offer a separate living room, a private bar and terrace, a gourmet kitchen, and ocean views from the master bedroom.
Insider Tip: Each year, endangered sea turtles lay their nests right in the hotel’s backyard (typically May through October). Families will appreciate the complimentary AcquaMarine children’s program, which includes private swimming lessons and crafts.
