Sunny Isles Icon Acqualina Showcases Exciting & Lavish New Project

Four years ago, JustLuxe reported on an exciting luxury real estate development adjacent to Acqualina Resort & Spa. It was called The Mansions, and was a new build in a large oceanfront lot directly adjacent to the hotel. While still in early construction, it had a clear-cut destiny, according to the owner/developers: To be the world’s finest resort. This project would expand on the successful hotel that they’d already built and operated for six years, creating a whole much greater than the sum of two properties.

Four years later, The Mansions is a smashing success. Owners Jules and Stephanie Trump (the “other Trumps,” as locals call them, and no relation to The Donald), together with CEO Deborah Yager Fleming, created a product that surpassed all expectations, and they did so right on schedule. More than that, they created “a lifestyle that’s extraordinary,” on an idyllic piece of North Miami beachfront called Sunny Isles. “People were blown away by the extent to which we over-delivered,” says Jules Trump. And so, it’s on to the next chapter. South Florida—and the international luxury real estate market—prepare to welcome The Estates at Acqualina.
