Turnberry Isle Miami

A family-friendly paradise
Located just outside of Miami in the sunny city of Aventura, Florida, Turnberry Isle Miami’s 300-acre property is a tropical getaway for the whole family.

Offering two 18-hole PGA Championship golf courses plus a driving range, the resort is great for those who enjoy hitting the fairways. But if golf isn’t your idea of fun at all, you’ll likely delight in the four clay tennis courts, or maybe you’ll want to exercise in the gorgeous 25,000 square-foot spa and fitness complex that even boasts a spinning studio and Spa Café.

Come evening, Bourbon Steak offers chops and cocktails in a contemporary setting, or for rustic, refined fare and a sense of effortless sophistication, dine at Corsair by Scott Conant.

Children will also find plenty of ways to amuse themselves with a kids' club, private beach club and Turnberry Isle Miami’s truly unique swimming pool with a 1,600-foot lazy river and a 180-foot water slide.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• Originally designed by Robert Jones Trent, Sr., and then refashioned by Raymond Floyd, the two 18-hole PGA championship golf courses feature bright green paspalum fairways, doglegs and impressive water features, including a spectacular waterfall.

• The main swimming pool at the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended resort is designed with a lazy river where you can go tubing and a 180-foot winding water slide — perfect for families with kids and the young at heart.

• You’ll find tasty burgers and delicious steaks at the Miami outpost of Michael Mina’s modern steakhouse located just off the lobby.

• Florida didn’t get its “Flowery Land” name for nothing. Boasting verdant gardens dotted with banana and palm trees, birds of paradise, and a chef’s herb garden, the grounds at Turnberry Isle Miami are a sight to behold.

• The 25,000-square-foot building located near the resort’s entrance offers one of the best resort gyms we’ve visited, with a variety of equipment from treadmills to rowing machines, morning spinning and yoga classes, and even an onsite café where you can down a protein shake post-workout.
Things to Know
• Turnberry Isle Miami isn’t located in Miami, but rather in Aventura, Florida, about a 30-minute drive from downtown Miami.

• The hotel offers a private beach club complete with its own beachside eatery, but you’ll need to hop on the hotel’s shuttle bus to reach it. Once there, however, you’ll be treated to sandy beaches and the sounds of crashing waves.

• The beach might not be right outside your front door, but the property boasts two swimming pools and a lazy river with double and single inner tubes.
The Rooms
• Guest rooms at Turnberry Isle Miami are simply decorated using a neutral color palette of whites, creams and tans.

• You’ll have a king-size bed with white linens and tan leather headboard. On one side of the bed you’ll find a nightstand with an iHome clock/radio and iPod dock, and on the other side, a small desk area.

• All rooms also feature terraces with a wicker table and two chairs, should you want to enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail while listening to the palm trees swaying in the breeze.

• With a separate water closet, walk-in shower and deep soaking tub, the bathrooms are notably spacious and feature an elegant brown and black mosaic tile design that traverses the wall.
The Restaurants
• Head to James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Mina’s Bourbon Steak for dinner any night of the week. Known for its chops and décor, this Miami steakhouse sports a 12-foot-high glass box entry from the hotel lobby and a wine bottle cork hostess section.

• Perched on the golf course, Cascata Grille serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with an Italian twist. Snag a seat on the patio to watch golfers on the fairway or get comfy in the tavern-like interior.

• Another casual spot is Laguna Grill, which is appropriately located by the Laguna Pool. Chow down on typical poolside fare while you soak up the hot Florida sun.

• Sitting at Turnberry Isle’s members-only club Beach Club Grill is a great way to enjoy lunch and take a break from sunbathing. You’ll find a menu of wraps, including the popular grilled island spiced mahi mahi wrap, as well as salads and kids’ fare.
