PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

A calming, minimalist antidote to the kitsch of the Keys, bayside boutique hotel Casa Morada sits serene in a pocket of lush tropicalia: poolside palms hung with hammocks, a kaleidoscope of Floridian fauna, and the balmy waters of the Gulf of Mexico just a saunter from your suite.

Rooms 

Every suite is simply decorated with Mexican antiques, but only Sea View Suites have picture-perfect views of the bay, and a private terrace that is perfect for watching the spectacular sunsets. Opt for the Iguana, the largest suite, which overlooks the bay and includes a private outdoor deck and a Jacuzzi. The Manatee also overlooks the Florida Bay, and has an especially large tub with a rain showerhead in the bathroom.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

There is no dedicated restaurant, so guests should make plans to explore Islamorada each night for dinner. By day, the open-air café is simply decorated, with native flowers and orchids on some tables. Breakfast, which is served at the Seaview Terrace, includes fruit, cereal, granola, pastries and egg sandwiches; lunch at the Gazebo is salad, cheese plates, soup and panini.

Liquid Bliss 

The hotel has a small bar that serves wine, beer, sake and champagne; drinks are also served poolside.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Hit the island in time for free hour-long yoga sessions, offered on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday mornings from 9am. Active guests have plenty of options, including nearby tennis courts, bocce on the grounds, and bicycles for anyone who wants to explore Islamorada. Otherwise, the most fun is out on the water. The hotel provides kayaks, paddle boards and snorkelling equipment, and can set up sailing trips or guided tours of the Everglades. Need a trophy for the mantelpiece? The Florida Keys are the sport-fishing capital of the world. World Wide Sportsman stocks all the gear you’ll need to catch your big fish. Take a day trip to Key West to visit Ernest Hemingway’s home – which still houses descendants of the author’s six-toed cats – and stroll down Duval Street, which is the Bourbon Street of Key West. While there, take a ferry to the Dry Tortugas, where you can see shipwrecks and sea creatures through the clear water.

Transportation 

Casa Morada is in Islamorada, in the Florida Keys.

Planes 

The nearest airport is Miami International, about 90 miles away; you can fly direct from London Heathrow and New York. Our Smith24 team can book your flights for you and arrange transfers to the hotel.

Automobiles 

Since Miami is a 90-minute drive, guests are best off renting a car to explore the Florida Keys and leave the neighbourhood each night for dinner. The hotel offers free parking. If you don't plan on getting a car, catch the Florida Keys Shuttle (approximately $80 a person) to the city centre.
