Private Island Retreat – Little Palm Island Resort & Spa

Tucked away on a 4.5-acre private island in the Lower Florida Keys, Little Palm Island Resort & Spa whisks you away to a world unto itself—a magical destination replete with white sand beaches, world-class dining, and a meticulously curated experience to disconnect.

Little Palm Island Resort & Spa is a secluded paradise offering the essence of exclusivity and tranquility.

The tropical escape delivers an impeccable balance of first-class service and laid-back privacy that leaves you feeling like a pampered castaway. Arrive by private motor yacht transfer from the resort’s gorgeously designed Shore Station at Little Torch Key while you sip on the signature “Gumby Slumber” welcome drink or opt for a private seaplane transfer with a water landing.

With only 30 thatched-roof bungalows surrounded by lush foliage including countless palm trees and mangroves, each secluded space offers private sundecks, outdoor showers and ocean views. Interiors with island-inspired design feature wood and stone accents, a luxuriously appointed bathroom with mother of pearl tiles, a separate shower room and a luxurious soaking tub. Suites showcase a private outdoor fire pit, hammock, loungers, and a copper tub that can be serviced by the spa “bath butler” with aromatherapy and flower petals for romantic escape. Expect visits from the local fauna including Key Deer, wading birds and catch a sighting of the manatees from the dock.

Every dish from sunrise to sunset is served with incredible detail and subtle sophistication. Start your day with breakfast in-room or by the beach with a selection of fresh smoothies, avocado toast, eggs any style, Nutella French toast and fresh fruit. For lunch, lounge by a poolside cabana with delicious fish tacos and gourmet burgers. Dinner offers an award-winning menu with views that can’t be beat. Watch the breathtaking sunset reflecting along the glass-like ocean and indulge in world-class cuisine by Chef Brendan Mica from tables along the water edge, a terrace perched above the beach, or the private candle-lit dining room. A rotating menu fuses international flavors and techniques for unforgettable dishes including caviar service, fresh tuna tartare, wagyu ribeye–with each dish prepared to perfection.
