Refined Elegance and Enjoyment within Turnberry Ocean Colony

While South Florida is certainly famed for the number of relaxation options found here, Sunny Isles Beach has become one of the most prominent destinations for owners seeking the ultimate in luxury, exclusivity & enjoyment.  One prime example of this is Turnberry Ocean Colony, offered by world-renowned Turnberry Associates.

This incredible property gives owners the ability to relax and enjoy a pampered experience in myriad ways.  One of the most stunning benefits of the private club property is the 35,000 square foot club onsite.  Set directly against the pristine white sands of the beach and the azure waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the club is home to the most refined and enjoyable amenities and services imaginable.

First, owners will enjoy the fact that the club is private – owners and guests are the only ones allowed.  Next, the spa on property provides owners with any form of relaxation and rejuvenation they might wish including a vast array of services.  For instance, hot stone therapy offers benefits for tired, aching muscles, while the massage therapy options cover all possible needs. Take an invigorating eucalyptus steam shower, a dip in the hot tub or even a hot sauna.  A hair salon, beauty treatments, limo service and much more await owners here while the club is also home to an incredible beachfront dining experience.  While the 5-star restaurant certainly carries a reputation for elegance and refinement, there’s no need for a black tie or even an evening gown here.  Elegant casual is the theme and owners will find that the meals cover almost any range they might desire including community dining events during the holidays.  For additional benefits, a sommelier can provide assistance judging the wine list, or owners may retire to the lounge after dining to enjoy a luxury cigar, or partake in a snifter of cognac.

Lastly, the club offers a state of the art Cybex fitness center, complete with personal trainers, pilates and world-renowned therapists able to provide owners and guests with advice and assistance in tailoring a workout specifically for their needs.
