Acqualina Resort & Residences on the Beach

Couples will be spellbound by this five-star luxury hotel that stands tall on the quiet beaches of Sunny Isles Beach, presenting breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean. Laze the day away at the St. Tropez-style living room on the grassy dunes dotted with red umbrellas and lounge chairs; retreat to the adults-only pool; or book an indulgent couple’s massage at Acqualina Spa by ESPA, where you can upgrade to The Royal Spa Suite fitted with a private lounge, oceanfront treatment room and a steam shower for two. The resort can also create an intimate candlelit dining experience on the beach for couples.

    Kimpton Angler’s Hotel South Beach

    This recently reimagined gem brimming with Mediterranean panache is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, close enough to all the action of South Beach, yet it feels so removed. The boutique hotel features a new wing with 85 guest rooms with soaking tubs and balconies, and a panoramic rooftop pool. Couples who stay in one of the four historic buildings will find spacious villas boasting spiral staircases, private outdoor hot tubs and lush gardens. Guests can take part in Kimpton’s complimentary wine hour, and you can arrange to have mobile K’Alma Spas  visit your room for a heavenly massage.

      The Setai

      Couples seeking a sexy, Zen-like atmosphere can escape to this intimate hotel in South Beach with rooms decked out with rainfall showers and Bose surround sound systems meant for playing your favorite romantic tunes. During the day, hop between three temperature-controlled pools, or simply cuddle up on posh daybeds to listen to the ocean’s waves roll in and out. At night, tuck away at a dining table at Asian-influenced Jaya restaurant in the courtyard in a serenity pond flanked by palm trees; you’ll enjoy the ocean breeze and kissing under the stars.

        St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort, Miami Beach

        If romance means impeccable service, this swanky hotel in Bal Harbour is a perfect match. It is known for its staff who cater to your every whim. Guests are greeted with a welcome glass of bubbly. The day ends with a plate of macarons and a handwritten note with turndown service. Retreat to Remède Spa for a romantic treatment in the couples’ room, which includes a luxury soaking tub for two. Decide between a day at the adults-only pool, or for ultimate privacy, rent one of the opulent oceanfront day villas. You can also treat your sweetheart to a shopping spree at neighboring Bal Harbour Shops. After the sun sets, it’s time to pop more bubbly at the nightly Champagne sabering ritual, followed by dinner at Greek-inspired Atlantikos restaurant.

          Mr. C Coconut Grove

          This new boutique hotel, created by the Cipriani hospitality brand, is a nautical-inspired oasis in the lush neighborhood of Coconut Grove. The European-style hotel feels like a sleek luxury yacht and its elegant suites are outfitted with terraces, perfect for toasting to your love. Couples can hide out in a private cabana at the rooftop pool overlooking sparkling Biscayne Bay. At night, make reservations at rooftop Bellini Restaurant & Bar, where you’ll sip the peach-infused bellini cocktails and share truffle pasta. You’re also steps away from the Grove’s flourishing arts scene and eclectic shopping boutiques, and don’t forget to take a romantic stroll along the waterfront.

            Mandarin Oriental, Miami

            If couples really want to escape, check in to this posh hotel tucked away on tranquil Brickell Key, just a short a bridge away from the bustling Brickell/Downtown Miami area. It feels like being on a secluded island. Couples can snuggle on the private beach overlooking Biscayne Bay or float in the infinity-edge swimming pool. Rooms are decked out with oversized tubs perfect for romantic soaks, and balconies boast picturesque views of the Miami skyline and Biscayne Bay. Sip sexy cocktails at the dimly lit MO Bar + Lounge, then enjoy a Peruvian feast at La Mar by Gastón Acurio.

            Romance is everywhere you look in Miami, but these places ensure a getaway that will spark the fire. The rest is up to you.
