The hotel looks a lot bigger than it actually is. It is made up of several towers, half of which are residential, the hotel part is located in the lower half of the towers. Open in 2006, the hotel was designed by designer Zeke Fernandez. The interior hotel design is a contemporary fusion of Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern influences. The lobby, which is borders on being gaudy, leads to a more contemporary corridor that leads to all the hotel's main amenities such as the spa, two restaurants and gym, and right outside to the hotel's several terraces. The terraces make for lots of nooks and crannies to relax with a book and as the area is spacious, it is rarely crowded. Alternatively, guests can lounge around one of the hotel's three pools, or on the long beautiful stretch of sand lined by turquoise waters. The beach is the hotel's strongest point, as you will be able to see from our photos.
There is a gym for exercise fiends on the Mezzanine level. The 20,000 sq ft ESPA oceanfront spa is chic and private (despite there not being individual changing facilities), making for a welcome break away from the children. Speaking of which, there is an excellent children's program. 'Acquamarine', the kids' club is extremely well-equipped and caters for children from 5-12 years old. Half-day and full-day 'camps', as they are called, are available. Children are also taken to try out water sports, cooking, and they can even be taken on a day-long excursion to attractions such as the Everglades and Sealife.
