10. Little Palm Island Resort – Florida Keys
Re-opening-currently scheduled for April 1, 2020 but I had to include this hidden gem on my list- Little Palm Island Resort & Spa is a best kept secret – exotic feel of far away islands but yet, just off the Florida Keys coastline. A favorite of U.S. presidents and celebrities for years- five and half acre private island paradise with 15 redesigned thatched-roof bungalows, with ocean views, all new interiors.
Other new exciting enhancements that guest will enjoy will be the new world-class spa, the already amazing Dining Room has been enhanced to better show off ocean views and now combines with the ever popular Monkey Hut lounge. new private cabanas have been added to the oceanfront pool area.
To assist guests in truly escaping and enjoy their getaway in paradise the resort will maintain its tradition of keeping televisions and telephones out of guest rooms and public areas.
Once thought of risqué, lifetime experiences such as resorts with outdoor showers are at the top of my honeymoon , destination wedding and milestone wedding anniversary clients. Each resort offers something special and unique but the common thread is unparalleled service and attention to detail – not your every day resorts and for everyone – but my job as a romance travel designer is to bring to mind one of a kind experiences to share with my clients.
