Favorite April Travel Spot:
Escape to a Very Special Private Island Paradise in Florida.
Our Boat House is pleased to announce a new special travel feature on our blog. Each month we will bring you to one of our favorite vacation spots. This month we are featuring one of the most special resorts we have ever visited and it is the only private island resort in the US - Little Palm Island Resort and Spa. This is a hidden gem just a 15 - minute boat ride from Little Torch Key in Florida. Little Palm Island Resort and Spa is a world-class resort that we wish we could keep a secret, but we cannot. It is too special to not share with our readers.
A small, exclusive private Island only accessible by boat or seaplane. The resort provides a sweet launch, The Truman, in Little Torch key to whisk you away to your own tropical paradise. You can also take a Seaplane from Miami or Key West or travel by your own boat or yacht. There are never more than 60 guests at any given time on the island. This adults-only oasis is perfect for a romantic vacation where you can experience the beauty of nature with tropical sunsets and turquoise water with the utmost privacy. This is a special destination and it is at a premium with rates starting at $2,490. a night, but well worth the investment. All your stress will melt away the minute you step onto the island. After going through over a 2-year pandemic that kept us all at home, nothing could be better for your health and wellbeing then to unwind in a tropical paradise. The exclusive resort, on a private 4.5 acre Island, has 30 luxury bungalows, each with breathtaking views of the ocean. The dreamy bungalows have thatched roofs and they are furnished in a West Indies feel. The luxury suites have private decks on the beach and some have outdoor copper soaking tubs and firepits. It is the perfect place to rejuvenate with no Tv's or phones to disrupt the tranquility.
