Opening as the first-ever all-inclusive in the Keys and located just 63 miles south of Miami, the upscale, boutique, waterfront resort features 135 private bungalows dotted across the property's 12 acres, each featuring their own bougainvillea-laden veranda with an oversized soaking tub and outdoor garden shower. Organic textures, soothing tropical hues and all-natural materials complement the bohemian expression of Key Largo's relaxed cabana lifestyle.
Nestled within a botanical garden edged by the ocean and flanked by the Intracoastal Waterway and Everglades National Park, the expansive, adults-only oasis welcomes travelers with two pools and two jacuzzi tubs, three piers, 4,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space and countless beach cabanas sprinkled along the shoreline, where guests can relax and embrace romantic sunset views.
Immersed in timeless island-elegance under thatch roofing, Bungalows Key Largo boasts three dining experiences: Bogie & Bacall's for multi-course fine dining and wine pairings, the beachside Sea Señor for Mexican fare under cooling coconut trees and resort-casual seafood restaurant, Fish Tales, inspired by the vibrancy of Capri in Italy. For those laying by the sun-drenched infinity pool or on the sands of Coconut Beach, the resort also features two floating six-seat tiki boats, aptly named the S.S. Rum Runner and S.S. Margarita; Largo Larry's food truck for quick beach bites, and the Sunset Tiki Bar where exotic cocktails are served across African teak and guests can enjoy sunset happy hours surrounded by unpretentious, coastal decor.
Active, lifestyle-focused travelers will be pleased to find two cruiser Huffy bicycles provided with each bungalow for exploration beyond their private suites, a Fitness Tiki Hut complete with Peloton equipment, daily morning yoga sessions and an array of aquatic activities such as snorkeling and paddleboarding. Electric Duffy boats, a 38-foot sailing catamaran and a 40-foot Intrepid powerboat are perfect for private charters and fishing expeditions.
Those looking to unwind will enjoy the full-service Zen Garden Spa, where highlights include a Himalayan salt room, a turquoise blue quartz-tiled eucalyptus steam room and black, bamboo-lined walkways marked with Buddha heads leading guests to five private outdoor treatment rooms where a range of therapies from the restorative-wellness menu awaits.
Skirting the Everglades on the west and John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park on the east, Bungalows Key Largo guests seeking adventure can visit the first U.S. undersea park showcasing vibrant marine life on view via snorkeling, glass-bottom boat tours & kayaking. Additionally, in the home of the diving capital, adventure seekers can explore a myriad of underwater activities, including the world's second largest artificial reef, the 510-foot USS Spiegel Grove and the famous Christ of the Abyss underwater statue.
The most discerning travelers can opt to arrive via seaplane, with Staniel Air offering 35-minute flights from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport (FXE) to Bungalows Key Largo daily (rates vary).
