We’re bringing you some vacation inspiration in the form of our four favorite Florida resorts – these on location photos will have you dreaming of a summer get away. So kick back, relax, and start day dreaming.
Acqualina Resort and Spa
Location – Sunny Isles Beach
Take a step into modern sophistication and luxury. This Florida resort offers access to many local beauties, including art museums, botanical gardens, zoos, and safari parks. But don’t feel like you have to take off in a hurry. A dip in their ocean facing pool will cool you off or sit poolside with a drink in hand and let the sea breeze drift over your skin while reading this summer’s next bestseller. It’s called a Resort and Spa for a reason – don’t miss out on some prime YOU time.
BONUS: If that’s not enough for you: travelers rave about the excellent staff, giving them a little something extra to brag about.
Location – Miami
If you feel like getting away but don’t want to miss out on the action, then you might enjoy the Mandarin Oriental hotel in Miami. Within the hotel you will feel pampered by their excellent spa, relaxed by the private beach and pool, and tempted by luxury shopping at specialty boutiques. But if you feel like getting out and about then the excitement of downtown Miami is still within walking distance. So, if you want to be close to everything, yet feel that you’re away from it all then this one’s for you.
BONUS: Known for spacious and beautiful rooms that you’ll want to return to again and again.
Location – Palm Beach
Beautiful architectural details throughout this celebrated hotel (already in its second century) will astound you, transporting you to a palace by the sea – even its tall lobby ceilings were completed by artists brought in from Italy! Fountains appear throughout the landscaping with plenty of places to take a seat, a breath, and relax. There are plenty of activities available to keep you busy: beachside yoga, guided snorkeling, bicycle tours, golf, and excellent spa services. If you feel like enjoying the beauty of the Florida coast lounge by any of the four (that’s right – FOUR) ocean facing pools or lounge in private beach sands.
BONUS: One night in this historical masterpiece will have you feeling like a queen.
The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island
Location – Amelia Island
If you’re looking to feel refreshed then don’t overlook this popular hotel with friendly staff, great food, and a prime location. This place seems to have it all! With indoor and outdoor entertainment options you can find the best of both worlds – including a historic bike tour, nature tour, cocktail classes, and even a private couple’s fire in the dunes (ah- romance). Better yet – the beach is just a few steps away!
