Ground Zero for the Key West Experience: Ocean Key Resort & Spa is the Center of Attention in Old Town

Nov 23, 2020 05:00PM ● By BLAIR TOMPKINS

The most famous of the Florida Keys, Key West is renowned for its breezy, subtropical climate, laid-back lifestyle and unique confluence of history and charm. Lined with swaying palms and lapping blue waters, the island is famous for its watersports, fishing and diving. Ocean Key Resort & Spa, named the number-one resort in the Florida Keys by Condé Nast Traveler in 2019, captures Key West island living with a spacious blend of opulence and flair. 

Nestled between Key West Harbor and Mallory Square—with the distinctive address of 0 Duval Street—Ocean Key Resort & Spa is a luxurious oceanfront property located in the heart of Key West, where historic Duval Street begins the Old Town experience. Set along the coast where the Gulf of Mexico mingles with the Atlantic Ocean, the resort invites wanderlust seekers to escape alongside warm breezes, breathtaking views and ultimate relaxation. 

Ocean Key Resort & Spa charms guests with 100 deluxe rooms and suites with spacious living and dining areas, oversized whirlpool tubs and balcony views that allow guests to relax, recharge and create memories together. Each room exudes bright, lively colors, illuminated with hand-painted furnishings and island-style art that reveals the eclectic energy of the destination it serves. The créme de la créme of suites is the two-bedroom Oceanfront Penthouse—offering 1,200 square feet of private living space and unparalleled waterfront views from the resort’s top floor. 

Ocean Key Resort’s island boutique spa, SpaTerre, is a private paradise for rest and renewal, encouraging guests to indulge in one-of-a-kind treatments that combine Eastern wellness practices with indigenous oils and herbs to create exotic, life-altering experiences. Each treatment and body ritual is custom designed to invigorate the mind and body, allowing for total rejuvenation in a natural, tropical setting. 

Ocean Key Resort offers a blend of Cuban flavors and locally sourced seafood and produce, presenting a signature Key West flair found throughout its various dining venues. For a casually elegant culinary experience, Hot Tin Roof—a AAA Four-Diamond Award restaurant, is acknowledged for its fresh fare and sunset views that overlook the Key West Harbor. 

For lively experiences, the resort’s Sunset Pier is the best seat in town for Key West’s famed sunsets, inviting guests and locals alike to enjoy daily entertainment and dancing, flavorful libations and Caribbean-inspired dishes. Private to Ocean Key guests, the LIQUID Pool Bar & Lounge provides a poolside oasis with some of the most desirable views on the island, and delivers culinary delights and tasty cocktails that match the energy. 

For guests seeking a safe getaway in this time of COVID-19, Ocean Key Resort & Spa is offering multi-generational families and friends the ultimate social-distancing luxury package, "The Pinnacle of Paradise," reserving a section of the hotel—featuring accommodations in the Presidential Suite, 10 Boutique suites, a private happy hour at LIQUID and private dinner on Sunset Pier, available at $31,000 per night. (The package is subject to availability and blackout dates.)
