Picture an island getaway surrounded by turquoise water, warm sand and a radiant sun beaming down to give you a golden tan. When you imagine this serene scene, where are you drawn to?
If you did not think of Key West, Fla. then you should definitely consider it. To take it one step further in helping you plan an island oasis, you should visit the highly luxurious Sunset Key Cottages.
These oceanfront, stunning cottages allow for the perfect escape from the mainland, as you are transported by ferry from the Margaritaville Key West Resort and Marina to a private island for guests of Sunset Key. Upon arrival, you are greeted by a beautifully decorated dockside that leads to the cottages and amenities situated along the island’s coast. From there, you can check in with the friendly and accommodating resort staff that will then help you with your belongings to your private home.
Once entering into the stunning and lush property, you will then enter into one of the deluxe rooms and make yourself at home with daily delivered treats, comfortable furnishings and a view that will make you smile immediately.
After settling into the room, you can sit along the water and look out onto the shimmering ocean with sail boats, jet skis and many more water activities. Or you can hang poolside with a relaxing waterfall and sip on a cocktail brought to you by the staff at the conveniently located Flipper’s Pool Bar.
After you are finished bathing in the sun and taking a dip, the next thing to do is freshen up and make your way to the delectable Latitude’s Restaurant located on property. This venue boasts the best evening view on the water, with torch lit seating and hearing the gentle crashing of the waves along the shoreline.
Some of the must-have menu options at Latitude’s include a frozen Key Lime Colada that is mixed perfectly at the bar and easily enjoyed during a warm night. As an appetizer, the creamy Burrata Cheese dish will satisfy your savory craving with a mix of creamy mozzarella, fried green tomato, balsamic reduction, basil olive oil, arugula and an onion salad. For the main dish, there are plenty of fresh seafood options but a favorite from the restaurant is the Wagyu Beef Skirt Steak. This tender cut of meat brags with a korean barbecued grilling, ceviche-styled mushroom, sesame potato purée and a delicious tempura asparagus side.
Latitude’s is also open for breakfast and lunch. So the entrees can be enjoyed throughout the day.
During your stay, you should also reserve a spot at the on-site Spa. Here you can choose from a variety of experiences, including The Touch Experience, The Skin Care Experience, The Body Renewal and many other Spa Packages.
If you are looking for a family escape to the tropics or a romantic getaway, then you should make reservations at Sunset Key Cottages. This is one of the top travel destinations that should be on your radar this year.
