THIS ESTABLISHMENT HAS BECOME TURNBERRY ISLE Fairmont Turnberry Isle Hotel Review: Providing royal treatment is the long-standing hallmark at this magnificent hotel and country club, now part of the Fairmont chain. No matter where you turn, from the tropical gardens to the marina down the street to the exquisite spa, this 300-acre retreat in North Miami offers everything in palatial proportions. Following a $100 million transformation completed in December 2006, facilities are even more amazing. The hotel's 392 renovated guest rooms and suites have been lavishly appointed (most are decorated in a Mediterranean style with modern accents and have French doors leading to private terraces) and feature the latest technology. Bath facilities are equipped with color TVs and specially made bath products. The use of a private beach club comes complete with cabanas and discreet attendants. Bill Clinton has been spotted playing on the resort's two championship golf courses. The hotel's Forbes Four Star Spa & Fitness includes a luxe treatment menu, techno-Gym equipment, a Pilates studio and a variety of fitness classes. Fine dining includes Bourbon Steak from chef/restaurateur Michael Mina, along with The Beach Club, The Laguna Grill, and the Cascata Grille, offering a menu of fresh seafood and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine.
