Miami: The Three Attributes of the Best Family-Managed Resort in the USA

Mauro Pinho, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Acqualina Resort & Residences, reveals to that personalized service, luxurious accommodations, and gourmet dining experiences along with other high-quality services are the three standout attributes that have made Acqualina Resort & Residences the best resort in the USA according to U.S. News and World Report.

“Each guest receives attentive and personalized service, ensuring their stay is not only enjoyable but truly memorable. Our accommodations are designed with luxury and comfort in mind, featuring spacious rooms, elegant décor, and stunning ocean views. We offer a blend of privacy, serenity, and lavishness that is hard to find elsewhere. Additionally, we offer world-class experiences. From our award-winning spa to gourmet dining options, Acqualina provides a wide range of high-quality services and experiences that cater to all ages and interests. We have four destination restaurants: the beachfront Costa Grill and the renowned Il Mulino New York along with Avra Miami and Ke-uH,” explains Pinho.

Acqualina Resort & Residences is not part of any chain or investment fund, even though outsourcing is a growing management model. Its owners are Jules and Eddie Trump, two South Africans with no familial link to Donald Trump, former President of the United States.

“Acqualina Resort & Residences cherishes its heritage and the personal touch we bring to our management style. We believe that maintaining family ownership allows us to preserve the unique vision and unparalleled service standards Acqualina is known for,” says Pinho.

He adds that the resort does not focus on any specific type of client. It is a versatile destination capable of catering to groups of friends, couples, or families alike. “Our wide range of amenities and services ensures every guest finds activities and experiences tailored to their preferences.”

When asked about emerging trends in the tourism industry, Pinho points out there is an increasing concern among guests for sustainability and a growing demand for products related to health and wellness.
