Turnberry Isle Miami is located in Aventura, Florida across the street from South Florida’s leading shopping destination, Aventura Mall.  This resort is the epitome of luxury and upon entering you will walk through elegant Mediterranean style walkways.  It’s no wonder that the resort has been the setting for a variety of major motion pictures and television programs because the posh atmosphere literally makes you feel like a movie star upon arrival.

Grounds


You will notice that the hotel has taken great measures to maintain unspoiled beauty as it was designed around a 100 year old Banyan tree which continues to grow.  The grounds are just as immaculate as the interior. You will be welcomed by a lovely fountain at the resort entry and experience a stunning Mediterranean style oasis.  If you’re into golf, then this is the place to go for renowned championship golf courses.

Pools

You can lose track of time at the Laguna Pool, floating down the lazy river or even soaking in the hot tub a few times. Your kids will love racing down the water slide and swimming in the main pool or a small toddler wading pool.

After working up an appetite on the water slide and lazy river, poolside dining is available at The Laguna Grill.  You can cool off with one of their specialty frozen cocktails and it’s great for a quick bite with plenty of salads to choose from, as well as sandwiches and burgers.  The menu also has a great selection for your kids.

If you need some time away from the family scene, you can escape to the quiet and pristine pool on the other side of the resort, or retreat into your cabana and catch up on news or sports.

Dining


Holding true to its reputation for surpassing expectations, the dining choices at Turnberry Isle Miami satisfy any taste and its critical acclaim is well deserved.  If you would like to sample cuisine by an award winning chef, go to Bourbon Steak House for signature modern fare by Michael Mina. The striking dining room with chic mirrored walls and a “glass box” private room is a must see.  The restaurant’s bar and lounge serve good old fashioned burgers, if you want a more relaxing atmosphere and comfort food.

Another great place to relax and dine at the resort is the Cascata Grill.  The restaurant overlooks a beautiful outdoor terrace where you can enjoy views of the golf course and lush tropical landscape.  In harmony with its atmosphere, the restaurant features classic Mediterranean-inspired cuisine twisted with island influences.

For casual dining with an ocean view, head to the Beach Club Grill, which offers sandwiches, wraps, and salads.  The Lobby Lounge is another comfortable spot with a creative menu of mini-bites.  Try the Turnberry Mojito, it’s quite refreshing.

The Chef’s Garden is a unique dining experience that your kids are bound to love.  It’s situated in an inviting botanical wonderland filled with an extraordinary collection of herbs, vegetables and fruit trees.  The chefs lead complimentary tours and host garden-side soirees as well as do cooking demos. You will experience a fresh and sustainable meal.

Spa


For those of you that enjoy being pampered, there is a three story Spa & Fitness Center that is utterly lush.  The three levels are accessible by a stunning spiral staircase accented with a glass dome skylight and dramatic 40-foot curved floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the natural beauty that is the South Florida sun.  This sight alone implies what bliss the staircases must lead to.

 

Attractions


Just minutes away from South Beach, the resort is close enough for you to enjoy a number of exhilarating South Florida sights, such as Miami Beach, the Miami Seaquarium, the Aventura Marina, Everglades National Park, Oleta River State Park, and Gulfstream Park Racing & Casino.
