In 2018, Hurricane Irma left a destructive path that devastated islands from the Caribbean to the Florida Keys. Now, nearly two-and-a-half years later, Little Palm Island Resort & Spa will reopen to guests on March 1, 2020. The luxury property stretches out over four acres on a tiny island off Little Torch Key. Accessible only by seaplane or boat, the remote adults-only paradise features 30 British Colonial-style thatched roof bungalow suites that are simply gorgeous, even more so after the extensive renovations. It's the closest thing to waking up on Gilligan's Island--except here everyone gets Thurston and Lovey Howell-level treatment.
Each bungalow features loads of amenities, including spectacular ocean views, air-conditioning, a boudoir tub, indoor/outdoor shower, and a private deck, as well as other perks like nightly turndown service and complimentary non-alcoholic minibar beverages. WiFi is included, but the room itself is free of TVs and phones, so it's encouraged to unplug completely. Password? We don't need no stinkin' password!
The resort fee includes several niceties, including a welcome cocktail upon arrival by private motor yacht transfer, access to the sparkling beachside pool and bar, plus a well-appointed fitness center to keep that swimsuit body in tip-top shape. Even staff gratuities are included. A dining room and full-service spa round out the greatest hits (of many).
Suites start at $1500 per night, making this romantic escape among the most luxurious in the entire United States.
