With a new brand, new luxury tower and new water park, the treasured Aventura resort strikes a balance between traditional and modern luxury.

It can be difficult to update a classic.
It can be even more difficult to update a classic that’s viewed as the iconic seminal resort in an area that was virtually undeveloped a half-century ago.
JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa is the latest incarnation of the storied resort that put Aventura on the map. Roughly halfway between Miami and Fort Lauderdale, the area was mostly swampland when developer Donald Soffer began construction on the resort and surrounding condo properties decades ago. Today, the resort is the city’s anchor for longtime repeat visitors, club members and local fans.
After cycling through a number of different luxury hospitality brands throughout the years, the hotel raised the JW Marriott flag in late 2018. It’s a good brand fit, with large, airy public spaces and intimate cloistered corridors imparting the brand’s utterly residential design sensibility.
The design is by NBWW Architects out of Coral Gables, Fl (Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe).
