One Florida has landed on Tripadvisor’s ranking of the 2023 Best Hotel Awards. Acqualina Resort & Residences on Sunny Isles Beach was ranked fifth on the website’s list.

Tripadvisor’s ranking is based on 12 months of review data from actual travelers and covers more than 1.5 million hotels.

Acqualina travelers reportedly love the resort’s spa, pool and pet-friendly atmosphere, Tripadvisor wrote.

“Diverse in culture and abundant in natural beauty, Miami is a paradise for travelers seeking authentic experiences without sacrificing luxury,” the review said. “Whether your preference is exploring the city’s world-renowned culinary scene or delving into nature, here are the best ways to discover South Florida with our one-of-a-kind Acqua Experiences.”

Earlier this year, Acqualina was named the best beach resort in the United States and best hotel in the United States by U.S. News & World Report. The hotel and spa also were honored with a five-star rating this year from Forbes Travel Guide.

The site’s list of world’s best hotels tabbed Rambagh Palace in Jaipur, India, as the top pick. The Perry Lane Hotel in Savannah, Ga., was the top U.S. hotel.

“It’s clear that our community ventured far and wide last year: Our 10 winning subcategories encompass 37 regions around the world and include a wide range of amazing places to stay,” said Sarah Firshein, Head of Editorial at Tripadvisor. “An opulent palace in Jaipur topped the charts, while hotels ranging from a ‘glamping’ retreat in Patagonia to a rock ‘n’ roll–themed boutique in Boston made their mark as well. As our savvy reviewers know, hotels can sometimes be the entire reason for the trip—I’m personally very excited to consult this list as I plot out the next year of vacations with my own family.”
