Sitting at your desk all day is bad for your body and your overall happiness, but who’s really complaining with that fat salary am I right? Yes, you work hard, but there needs to be a time dedicated to relaxation and to re-charge your batteries. You need a get-away trip, and we have just the place for you: The Playa Largo Resort & Spa.

A new resort in the Upper Keys, where everyone knows the grass is greener is the first resort to be constructed in this part of the Keys in more than 21 years. Just to give you an idea, Play Largo is officially the 100th addition to Autograph Collection Hotels, which are, “selected for [their] quality, bold originality, rich character and uncommon details.”

The resort is inspired by Key Largo’s natural beauty, and encompasses some 14 waterfront acres. The overall aesthetic is tranquil, elegant, and breezy. There are exactly 144 rooms to choose from, or if you’re looking for something a bit homier with a little more elbow room, the resort also offers ten secluded bungalows as well as a three-bedroom house that you can book, located right on the beach with a private plunge pool.

If upscale amenities are your jam, you will love this resort. With a waterfront pool that seems to go on forever, 745 feet of beautiful, blue-water beach, a fitness center (complete with sexy resort women who also like to work out,) two tennis courts, a basketball court, and kayak and jet ski rentals in the private marina. With so many options for activities, you’re going to work up an appetite, and you won’t be disappointed by the food.

Choose from three gourmet restaurants, located on the resort property. Your options include La Marea, your traditional steakhouse; Las Olas, a ceviche and sushi bar; and Sol by the Sea, which includes awesome views of the ocean and entrée options with local, fresh-caught seafood.

Playa Largo is really the first option for luxury accommodation in this part of the Upper Keys. And you can do more than just vacation there. The resort is great for weddings and corporate events. The Tavernier Ballroom has 6,000 square feet of space and a large, open lawn. So whether you visit for business or pleasure, this resort is so beautiful and luxurious, you’ll be back sooner than you can acquire more PTO days from work!
