Little Palm Island Resort & Spa Review
Haute tropicale best describes this luxury retreat, and "second mortgage" might explain how some can afford the extravagant prices. But for those who can, it's worth the price. This property sits on a 5-acre palm-fringed island 3 mi offshore from Little Torch Key. The 30 oceanfront thatch-roof bungalow suites have slate-tile baths, mosquito-netting-draped king-size beds, and British colonial–style furnishings. Other comforts include an indoor and outdoor shower, private veranda, separate living room, and comfy robes and slippers. Two Island Grand Suites are twice the size of the others and offer his-and-hers bathrooms, an outdoor hot tub, and uncompromising ocean views. To preserve the quiet atmosphere, there are no TVs in the bungalows and cell phones are highly discouraged in public areas.
Perched on its own 5-acre island among the Lower Florida Keys, Little Palm Island feels as though you've arrived for an uncharted South Seas fantasy. Thatched huts are designed for romance—you won't find a television or phone. In their place are amenities like indoor and outdoor showers, whirlpool baths for two, and beach bags stocked with towels. Guests come here for maximum relaxation, punctuating quiet mornings with diving and fishing excursions. Afternoons may be spent indulging in massages, lounging on the small beach or poolside, and dining gloriously on Caribbean-French fusion masterpieces at the restaurant.
