Tucked away between North Miami and Hallandale Beach lies Aventura, one of South Florida’s most affluent cities, minutes away from the ocean. The Hilton Aventura Miami sits directly across from Aventura Mall, an international shopping destination known for its luxury boutiques, art installations, family-friendly activities, and a sprawling indoor market featuring local farmers and artisans. For an ultra-luxe experience, the Hilton Aventura offers an exclusive Shopping in Style package, which includes a personal shopper and VIP perks at Bloomingdale’s. By booking a King Executive room, you’ll get 24-hour access to the Continental executive lounge to brew yourself a coffee, catch up on reading, or find a quiet space to work. Each room is outfitted with a Nespresso machine and complimentary espresso pods, a minibar, smart TV, and a striking marble bathroom.
The contemporary interior of the hotel, inspired by Dalí and his muses, comes alive at Gala. Spearheaded by the general manager of food and beverage, Thaddeus Keefe, and Executive Chef Philip Thompson, the menu at Gala is an elevated culinary experience where global influences meet fresh local ingredients. The indoor-outdoor dining room transforms from poolside brunch to an ambient romantic dinner setting with mouthwatering dishes ranging from red snapper ceviche to churrasco skirt steak. Two outdoor terraces, overlooking both ends of the pool, are available for events (think: competing DJ booths for pool parties or rooftop yoga). For working travelers, the business center, Muse bar, and lounge seating on the lobby level are perfect spaces to get some work done before a refreshing swim or a workout at the fitness center.
Local attractions include the South Florida’s premier horse-racing destination, Gulfstream Park Racetrack, with Vegas-style gaming experiences and adjacent upscale shops, golf courses; the Museum of Contemporary Art, in North Miami; and nearby beaches. A short drive past star-studded Sunny Isles Beach (superstar soccer player Lionel Messi recently purchased a home here) will take you to Hallandale Beach. Dine at critically acclaimed ETARU, an oceanside robata Japanese dining experience featuring a melt-in-your-mouth black cod marinated with yuzu miso.
Direct flights from Westchester Airport to either Miami or Fort Lauderdale airports will land you 40 minutes from a luxe refreshing vacation stay at the Hilton Aventura Miami.
