Located just outside of Miami in the city of Aventura, what makes Turnberry Isle Miami different from other hotels is the wealth of amenities and activities you’ll find across the sumptuous 300-acre property. The grounds are lovely and integrate the tropical flora into both the design and in name (buildings are all named after tropical flowers); you’ll definitely want to stroll through the chef’s herb garden or jog around the three-mile course surrounding the resort.
Offering two 18-hole PGA Championship golf courses plus a driving range, the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel is great for those who enjoy hitting the fairways. If you’re not a regular player, you can arrange for lessons to help improve your swing. Otherwise, you’ll likely enjoy the four clay tennis court or a workout in the gorgeous 25,000-square-foot spa and fitness complex.
The resort is a perfect getaway for families with children. In addition to its onsite Kids' Connection activities and a private beach club a short shuttle bus ride away, Turnberry Isle also features a truly unique swimming pool with both a lazy river and a 180-foot water slide. No matter what your age or interests, you’re bound to find something to like at the Florida resort.
When most people think of Florida hotels and resorts, they think of ocean views, beach access and fruity cocktails. Turnberry Isle is the complete opposite (save for the fruity cocktails). This massive resort is located inland about 20 minutes from Miami Beach and is one of the only true private oasis destinations in Florida. If golf, food and relaxation is your thing, Turnberry Isle is for you. The resort is set on two championship 18-hole golf courses, features three pools, a 25,000-square-foot spa, four restaurants and two additional bars. There’s a tennis clinic, a kid’s camp, personal training and a chef’s garden, open to all guests to peruse with or without the chefs. If you get the urge for some sand between your toes, just take the resort’s complimentary shuttle to the private beach it occupies just a few blocks away.
