Little Torch Key, Florida, United States
The Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, the internationally acclaimed private island paradise, listed among the top resorts in the world by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel+Leisure magazine.
Tucked offshore of Little Torch Key and accessible only by boat or seaplane, the resort is a world unto itself, alive with hidden pleasures. Crushed seashell paths wind through lush gardens to thatched-roof bungalows, which serve as your guest quarters. Extra spacious, each suite and grand suite has romantic touches such as a king-size bed draped in butterfly netting, verandahs with ocean views and, in some rooms, private outdoor showers and jetted tubs.
From the lagoon-style pool to the meditative Zen Garden or the cozy Great Room library, a perfect serenity sweeps over you as you wander the island. Oversized hammocks beckon from the trees. Lounge chairs nestled in the sand call from the beach. And at the end of the day, return to your private bungalow for peaceful seclusion to dream again.
They welcome children 16 years of age and older. Pets are also not permitted on the island.
At first glimpse from your boat transfer, Little Palm Island appears, floating like a brilliant mirage, in the Florida Straits. The resort is set on a sweep of powder-soft sand with just 30 remarkable suites. Each of the 28, one-bedroom, thatched-roof oceanfront suites feature a king-sized bed, living room, indoor and outdoor showers, and a private verandah. There are also two exclusive Island Grand suites with his and hers bathrooms and an outdoor hot tub. If a sunset view is important to you, the Island Grand suite is a must. All suites are non-smoking.
