Experience the best of Miami’s vibrant art scene, eclectic culture, and acclaimed international cuisine while staying in a remote enclave where the goal of opulent luxury is exceeded. Just a short distance away from Florida’s bustling South Beach, you’ll find world-renowned amenities, combined with first-in-class service, at the sensational five-star Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne resort.
There’s something remarkable about a resort that makes you feel as though you are worlds away from reality. South Florida’s Key Biscayne is an accessible destination, not far from Miami International Airport (MIA), that feels like an escape to an exclusive, tropical island.
You’ll enjoy every minute at this opulent resort, with luxury accommodations, top tier hospitality, a variety of activities, and the finest culinary offerings. There’s something for everyone at this highly regarded Ritz Carlton property.
You can select from various room options at the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne, and I recommend the Club Oceanfront View King that I had the pleasure of calling home for my stay.
The design style of the hotel blends tropical tones, including light blue hues that invite the ocean in, with true elegant ambiance. Guestrooms are filled with vibrant splashes of color, rich natural elements, and high-end furnishings.
I loved this in-room amenity the hotel delivered.
The bathroom includes a separate bathtub and shower as well as marble finishes. An expansive vanity area includes dual sinks, Asprey signature bath toiletries, and a lighted makeup mirror. Lush bathrobes are included for the ultimate in-room spa experience.
One of my favorite features of this room was the private terrace. The views overlooking the Biscayne Bay and Key Biscayne are so tranquil and simply unforgettable.
Each guestroom is appointed with either a partial or full private balcony to relax as well as a gorgeous marble bathroom. For more spacious accommodations, I suggest looking into booking one of the many suites or long term Residences.
Exclusive access to the 9th floor Club Level is granted for guests booking rooms with this amenity included. A unique lounge space includes beer, wine, Champagne, spirits, and non-alcoholic beverages throughout the day. The Club Lounge offers various culinary services throughout the day: continental breakfast, lunch, light snacks, hors d’oeuvres, and chocolates & cordials. There’s even an exclusive Club on the Beach offering snacks and non-alcoholic beverages on the sand.
Golf aficionados will rejoice at Crandon Golf Course, one of Condé Nast Traveler’s “Top 100 Golf Resorts”. The Ritz Carlton is the destination for tennis players as well, with eleven tennis courts at the Cliff Drysdale Tennis Center.
Any Ritz Carlton spa is always a top destination on my list, and the luxury services offered at Key Biscayne go unrivaled. Treat yourself to a Coconut Nourishment treatment or Native American inspired Tequesta Ritual, combining algae wrap and massage treatments. The expansive 25,000 square-foot spa overlooks the ocean with steam rooms, sauna, whirlpools, and vitamin C-infused showers.
Don’t forget to go for a swim!
There is something for diners with all palates to enjoy at the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne. An oceanfront oasis, Lightkeepers features “Florida-found ingredients including seafood, cheese, and beef”. Cantina Beach, another oceanfront option, offers Mexican flavors and 110 premium tequilas to choose from. Take a trip to 1940s Havana with live latin music and authentic Cuban mojitos at RUMBAR. Try your favorite burger or the Wagyu Beef Sliders at Dune Burgers on the Beach. Find a refreshing sweet to enjoy at Scoop, the poolside ice cream parlor.
During my stay I had the pleasure of dining at Lightkeepers and the food was just fantastic.
While my stay was only one night, and far too short, it was memorable. I would love to return for an extended stay and enjoy more of the area. you’ll find that the staff are ever so gracious and accommodating, the food is delicious and the stay to be memorable.
