Cheeca Lodge & Spa

MM 82 OS, Islamorada, Florida, 33036, United States

At 27 acres, this may be the largest resort in the Keys, and it's also big on included amenities. In the main lodge, West Indies–style rooms boast luxurious touches like elegant soaking tubs that fill in a stream from the ceiling. If soaking in a tub isn't your thing, soak up the great views from the glass, floor-to-ceiling showers. The main building also holds three oceanfront restaurants including a sushi bar, and an outdoor swimming pool keeps the party going with underwater speakers and a tiki bar. The resort's other buildings hold more styles of accommodations and a spa with a bevy of signature treatments including hot lava shell massages, an adults-only lap pool with a bar, and a fitness center. For families, there's the 1,200-foot private beach, kayaks, bikes, fishing rods, a walking trail, and Camp Cheeca—a fun and educational program for kids 5–12. Golf (nine holes), tennis, and all manner of water sports cater to sports enthusiasts. At night, tiki torches light up paths and add even more ambience, if that's possible.
