Recent visitors frequently use the word "paradise" to describe Little Palm Island Resort & Spa. Nestled off the Florida Keys coastline on the secluded isle of Little Torch Key, this romantic island hideaway has perfected pampering: Guests can arrange to have drinks, cigars, snacks or even a warm bath waiting for them upon arrival. Some of the suites feature iron and teak ceiling fans, mother of pearl-tiled bathrooms and bamboo-ensconced outdoor showers. What accommodations don't have: phones or flat-screens that might distract you from relaxing. Something else you won't find here are guests younger than 16, which adds to Little Palm Island's romantic allure. The luxury doesn't stop at the suites; visitors rave about the delicious on-site dining. And note that Little Palm Island Resort & Spa is approximately 27 miles northeast of Key West International Airport, but you'll have to take a boat or seaplane to reach it.

Travel + Leisure


You'll want to plan ahead if you're spending some time at Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, as the property is only accessible by boat or seaplane (the hotel will tell you exactly what you need to do). It's worth the extra effort, as what you'll find is one of Florida's most secluded – and romantic – hideaways.



There's a long list of notable guests that have chosen to spend time at Little Palm Island, and it's no wonder as to why. Sitting three miles off the coast of the Lower Keys, this island paradise offers panoramic ocean views, fantastic water activities including diving at one of the most magnificent reefs in the Florida Keys, dining at one of the top-rated restaurants in the nation, pampering at their award-winning spa, and accommodations in a romantic, thatched-roof bungalow that looks like it was taken right out of a romance novel.



This exclusive offshore escape – host to presidents and royalty – is a destination unto itself. On a private 5 1/2-acre island accessible only by boat or seaplane, guests stay in thatched-roof bungalows amid lush foliage and flowering tropical plants – and Key deer, which are to this island what cats are to Key West.


Reachable only by boat or seaplane, Little Palm Island Resort & Spa is located on a private island where wild key deer roam. It includes 30 luxurious suites, many with private oceanfront verandas.

Condé Nast Traveler


Guests are welcomed with tropical rum punch and their names on wooden plaques on their rooms at this very private and isolated resort, accessible only by boat or seaplane. The crushed-seashell paths and more than 250 Jamaican coconut palms make guests feel like they are in the South Pacific.
