Sunset Key Guest Cottages - Key West, Florida
Palm trees swaying in the fragrant tropical breeze. A lacy white hammock centered between their towering forms. And a pristine stretch of wide sand beach bordered by impossibly blue Atlantic waters.

Santa Maria Suites Resort - Key West, Florida
This Key West luxury resort’s contemporary furnishings are a delightful contradiction to its historic façade. Minimalist platform beds are outfitted in the utmost comfort with silky fabrics, fine linens and a generous piling of plush pillows. Rattan accents and sleek glass shelves topped with bleached seashells are a decidedly upscale take on traditional island décor. And inspired works by local artists ensure the Key West scenery is never out of your line of sight – even inside the stylish comfort of your Santa Maria villa or suite. Santa Maria Suites Resort’s contemporary look continues inside the Ambrosia Restaurant, where Key West’s culinary masterminds have perfected the art of Asian cuisine and sushi presentation. Sip an exquisite glass of sake as you sample Ambrosia’s sashimi, tempura and other sea-faring treasures. Duval Street’s cafés and the Atlantic Ocean’s waters are both a block away, while Key West’s style hub – the upscale Clinton Market – offers a wide range of designer shops and boutiques just minutes from Santa Maria’s doors!
Pier House Resort & Spa - Key West, Florida
If your Key West vacation wouldn’t be complete without a generous dose of Florida sun, the resort’s Lanai Rooms are just the accommodation you’ve been looking for. And if you’re torn between the upscale comfort of your Pier House suite and the lavish pampering of the onsite spa, we’ve found a solution! Inside the Caribbean Spa Rooms, French doors open to let the cool tropical breezes float over your four-poster bed, while a private whirlpool and the entrance to Key West’s only full-service spa are only a few steps away. Speaking of pampering, we found a Key West spa that promises to ease stress, sooth aching muscles and restore your sunny disposition – all within the span of a single spa treatment. The Pier House’s Caribbean Spa will even treat you to a sun-kissed Florida tan without the sun’s damaging effects. An invigorating sugar scrub, self tanning application and light dusting of shimmer powder will leave you with that coveted golden glow!
Marquesa Hotel - Key West, Florida
If daily maid service and custom chocolates aren’t enough to impress, perhaps a gourmet breakfast savored in the comfort of your suite is enough to tip the scales in Marquesa Hotel’s favor. This Florida luxury hotel even boasts a helpful concierge at your service, who can easily arrange everything from afternoon water sports to full-day Key West adventures at your whim. Snorkel trips, diving adventures and even sunset catamaran sails to the Dry Tortugas can all be arranged by Marquesa’s hospitable staff – all you have to do is choose and enjoy!

The Gardens Hotel - Key West, Florida
The historic Gardens Hotel boasts the intimacy of a Florida boutique hotel, the pulsing heartbeat and scenery of Key West and just a hint of Bahamian flair. Set in the heart of one of Florida’s most beloved and well-cared for botanical gardens, the Gardens was once the largest private estate in all of Key West. Winding brick pathways lead to intimate spaces for two, brightly-plumed tropical birds perch inside the hotel’s aviary and equally exquisite Japanese and Hawaiian orchids bloom on its expansive grounds. The Gardens Hotel offers a unique collection of Key West rooms, suites and cottages as diverse – and beautiful – as the tropical blooms that surround. For tropics-inspired romance on your Florida vacation, only the quirkily-named Eyebrow Cottage will do. Your eyes may widen in delight when you catch sight of this stand-alone suite’s authentic plantation style, complete with palm ceiling fans, exotic hardwoods and tropics-inspired fabrics. But we can think of something else worth raising inside this romantic Key West luxury retreat: your champagne flutes as you toast to each other!
Cheeca Lodge - Florida
For a tropical getaway in the Florida Keys, Cheeca Lodge is our hands-down favorite. Palatial oceanfront suites – the largest in the Keys – serve as your oceanfront retreat complete with private lanais, open-air spa tubs and floor-to-ceiling windows that frame inspiring Atlantic Ocean views. Island-themed décor can bring to mind gaudy palm tree murals and cheesy mosquito netting, but Cheeca Lodge’s lavish interiors are anything but! Dark mahogany furnishings, oversized beds draped with luxurious fabrics and palm-leaf ceiling fans blend the beauty of Key West with the peak of Florida resort luxury. But it was what follows the “lodge” in Cheeca Lodge and Spa that truly captured our attention. Here on Islamadora, turquoise waters and fragrant tropical blooms set the stage for sheer rest and relaxation on your Key West vacation. Refreshing tropical breezes tickle your toes as you recline in a lacy hammock tied between to palm trees, while inside the Cheeca Spa, the soothing hands of a skilled masseuse lull you into a state of mind and body bliss.Visit Website
The Westin Key West Resort - Key West, Florida
The Westin Key West Resort may boast hints of a bygone era, but the luxurious amenities harbored within its walls are straight out of the 21st century. Vaulted ceilings and expansive windows blend the inspiring Key West scenery with the décor featured in your stylish Westin suite, while down pillows and rich fabrics surround you in plush comfort throughout your stay. More exquisite treasures await you at nearby Duval Street, where you can easily spend a day perusing the boutiques, antique shops, artist galleries and more that line this famed lane. Westin Resorts are famous for the luxurious comfort of the Heavenly Bed – a Westin signature. But we found something even more ethereal outside the Westin Key West Resort’s walls – mainly, the breathtaking crimson and golden glows that paint the Gulf of Mexico horizon with every spectacular Key West sunrise and sunset. Even the private balcony attached to your Florida luxury hotel suite has been blessed with breathtaking Gulf of Mexico views!Visit Website
