The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne, Miami

455 Grand Bay Dr., Miami, Florida, 33149, USA

In this ultra-laid-back setting, it's natural to appreciate the Ritz brand of pampering with luxurious rooms, attentive service, five on-property dining options, and ample recreational activities for the whole family. Need something to do? The "tequilier" at the reinvented seaside Cantina Beach can educate you on the finer points of his native region's drink (he has 110 different tequilas on hand). Hitting the spa? It was beautifully renovated in 2013, and in one of 21 treatment rooms, you can try signature body treatments inspired by the island's history. Hungry? The property's five eateries take you through the gastronomy and beverages of Cuba (RUMBAR, renovated in 2015), Mexico (Cantina Beach), New York (Key Pantry, offering a Dean & Deluca–style market), and back to Miami (Dune, Burgers on the Beach, also renovated in 2015, and Lightkeepers, the hotel's new coastal-cuisine restaurant opened in 2017). An 11-court tennis "garden" with daily clinics, a private beach, and beachside water sports are other options. Guest rooms have custom-made touches like mother-of pearl wall coverings. In-room luxuries like robes, slippers, fine linens, and high-end toiletries are par for the course. The Club Level offers food and beverage presentations throughout the day, and the Ritz Kids club has expanded its full-, half-day, and Saturday-night programs to include island history, fishing, and beach treasure hunts. Borrow bikes here to explore Bill Baggs Park and its lighthouse.
