The waterfront setting of Amara Cay Resort couldn’t be more apt considering that Islamorada, the key on which Amara Key sits, is considered the Sport Fishing Capital of the world. Fishing not for you? Not to worry, beach-side lounging, underwater exploration and delicious cocktails to toast the sunset are all encouraged here.
Amara Cay is located in Islamorada, otherwise known as the Village of Islands. The Florida Turnpike and the extensive and visually impressive overseas highway provide easy access to the resort from Miami, Tampa and Orlando.
Amara Cay Resort offers King and Double guest rooms as well as the larger deluxe suites. The pick of the bunch however, has to be the Ocean view rooms which, as you can guess, provide stunning views of the waters surrounding Islamorada. Regardless of which room you stay in out of the 105 on offer, the natural colour palette – directly influenced by the calming tones of the Florida Keys’ natural environment – is sure to keep you in harmony with these tropical islands.
WHY WE LIKE IT
The region of Islamorada itself is a great place to sample the diversity of life in the Florida Keys – this paradise is fit for relaxation, exploration, or both; and the resort’s location gives you the perfect place to lay your head after a day of activity or leisure. What’s more, if you need a day to recuperate, then the private beach (beset with tempting hammocks) is the perfect place to catch a few hours to yourself. You’re in the keys to experience wonders that you can’t find on the mainland US; Amara cay is the perfect base to operate from.
