Here’s Looking at You, Kid: …  Playa Largo Resort & Spa Key Largo

Bogie and Bacall had it right when they made their way to Key Largo—such tropical beauty, charm and romantic ambiance, no passport required, if you please.

Now, it’s your turn.

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.

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 15-foot 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.
