Acqualina Resort & Spa opened its doors in December 2006 and has not undergone a room renovation since then. The rooms at the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel still look fresh and without signs of wear and tear, and the luxury-meets-beachy style is anything but outdated. The in-room technology is top of the line, too— each room features a Bose iPod dock station that doubles as an alarm clock, flat-screen TV and complimentary Wi-Fi. A renovation recently took place in the hotel’s public spaces, with the opening of Piazzetta Marketplace and Restaurant. Piazzetta resembles an Italian town square with bottled wines, olive oils, brick-oven pizzas, crostini, panini, coffee and gelato. Acqualina chef Christopher Blum and Il Mulino New York chef Michele Mazza designed an eclectic menu — think melenzane and primavera pizzas, snow crab and lobster rolls, market and roasted beet salads, grilled New York strip, braised short rib and caviar — so you can eat high-end food anytime of the day, in the restaurant or on the go.
