Acqualina Resort & Spa’s New Celebrity Chef

By: Kara Franker


One of South Florida’s favorite chefs is shaking up the scene at Acqualina Resort & Spa in Sunny Isles Beach. Celebrity chef Dewey LoSasso, who appeared on the Food Network show Chopped a few years ago, is now leading the culinary team at the resort.

LoSasso, who’s won numerous awards for his creativity in the kitchen, is fresh off his last executive chef gig at the Forge in Miami Beach. Now he’s rolling out new menus at Acqualina that complement its AAA Five Diamond status. He draws his inspiration from the drop-dead gorgeous ocean views on the property and his love for locally grown, farm-to-table ingredients. 

Whether you’re looking for an intimate beachfront dinner for two or a fine-dining experience at the resort’s main restaurant, LoSasso will dazzle you with his culinary artistry. 

And in celebration of its recent addition to the 2014 Forbes Travel Guide Star Rating list, Acqualina Resort & Spa is offering a Five-Star Experience Package. You'll have the opportunity to experience the resort with a five-night getaway (complimentary fifth night) and enjoy five special amenities. This exclusive package is available from now until June 30, 2014 with daily rates starting from $950 per night ($760 per night including 5th night free) for an Oceanfront Room.

The Five-Star Experience package includes:

  • Special welcome amenity
  • Daily buffet breakfast for two by Il Mulino New York
  • One $75 Piazzetta credit
  • One 50-minute treatment at Acqualina spa by ESPA
  • One bottle of champagne upon arrival
