Perched in all of its splen­dor on 14 plus se­cluded beach­front acres, with white sugar sandy beaches and ex­quis­ite views of the Florida Bay, Playa Largo Re­sort & Spa in Key Largo awaits you.

Travel the short dis­tance from Mi­ami to this trop­i­cal par­adise and take in its ca­sual Keys am­biance, with all of the per­fect ren­der­ings ap­pointed at ev­ery turn, mak­ing it any­thing but ca­sual in its de­liv­ery. Ex­pect lux­u­ri­ous guest ac­com­mo­da­tions with a res­i­den­tial beach house feel, and that play­fully boast an Amer­i­can-Caribbean vibe. Playa Largo of­fers 177 luxury rooms & suites with Florida Bay views along with 10 se­cluded, two-story bun­ga­lows painted in candy pas­tel hues, ap­pointed with nat­u­ral ham­mock trees. For that in­di­vid­ual ex­pe­ri­ence, there is also an ex­clu­sive three-bed­room, four-bath beach house for the tak­ing, re­splen­dent with your very own pri­vate pool and beach. Ameni­ties in­clude vast acreage of se­cluded beach­front, a grand pris­tine re­sort pool, a full-ser­vice Ocean Spa, sa­lon and fitness fa­cil­i­ties, fire pits, 24-hour room ser­vice, a 34-slip ma­rina com­plete with a boat launch, dock­side din­ing at Sol by the Sea & beach­front Sand Bar, fresh break­fast served at La Marea, Las Olas; a Peru­vian ce­viche bar, wa­ter sports, bas­ket­ball and ten­nis courts, a jog­ging trail, a 6,000 sq. ft. ball­room with a pri­vate court­yard and a pri­vate mem­bers club.

Visit this par­adise and take in its nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als like coral rock, shells and lo­cal gumbo limbo trees, com­pli­mented by a palette of trop­i­cal blues, drift­wood neutrals and iri­des­cent shades. Gaze through the 15foot win­dows in the raised ho­tel lobby, with its cen­trally placed foun­tain, bring­ing the out­doors in. Neu­tral browns ac­cented by turquoise, coral and cream keep the vibe con­sis­tent and flow­ing through­out the prop­erty. For a lit­tle bit of adult time, feel free to drop off your lit­tle ones at Playa Kids; the re­sort’s daily dis­cov­ery camp with dive-in movies, scav­enger hunts, arts & crafts and more.

Be­tween sun soaked days of cata­ma­ran sail­ing (a must do ex­pe­ri­ence), grab­bing in a spa treat­ment and soak­ing in the pool, en­joy a sig­na­ture Playa Largo cock­tail or en­joy a bite to eat at one of four on-prop­erty din­ing venues: Sol by the Sea, with a menu art­fully in­spired by Trinida­dian cui­sine, Las Olas Ce­viche Bar, the only true ce­viche restau­rant in

Florida’s Up­per Keys, show­cas­ing fresh seafood ce­viche cured in trop­i­cal cit­rus juices, La Marea in­door/out­door restau­rant over­look­ing the pool and Bay and of­fer­ing an a la carte break­fast menu or con­ti­nen­tal/full buf­fet and the re­sort’s Sand Bar; serv­ing tra­di­tional Amer­i­can bites. For a real treat, sched­ule a can­dle­light din­ner on the beach and feel the magic.

Ocean Spa, Key Largo’s first full-ser­vice spa, of­fers an ar­ray of spa treat­ments uti­liz­ing su­per foods high in an­tiox­i­dants and amino acids to en­hance skin health. Sourc­ing trop­i­cal fruits such as pineap­ples and co­conuts, as well as other nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents like ma­rine al­gae, this 6,000 square-foot spa fea­tures six treat­ment rooms, with a cou­ple’s room, a co-ed re­lax­ation lounge, a steam room, a hair and nail sa­lon and Coco Mango Sig­na­ture ameni­ties. The spa menu in­cludes clas­sic mas­sages, skin and body treat­ments, hair and makeup ser­vices, spe­cialty men’s ser­vices and a va­ri­ety of wed­ding pack­ages.

Some of the lo­cally in­spired treat­ments in­clude: the Trop­i­cal Body Glow, the Beach­side Key Largo Sig­na­ture Mas­sage, the Sea Spray Quench Mois­tur­iz­ing Fa­cial and an Aroma Coral Wrap.
