Kona Kai Resort and Gallery
Address: 97802 Overseas Hwy. at MM 97.8
City: Key Largo
This quiet, adults-only tropical resort consists of just 13 rooms, and is perfect for a secluded, intimate getaway. The winding path alongside each of the cottages has a secret garden-like feel and leads up to the white-sand beach where hammocks, kayaks, and paddleboats await. This privately-owned property features a tennis court, art gallery, Jacuzzi, and pool (which is chilled in the summer and heated in the winter). Housekeeping is offered every third day, or on request and the rooms (eight of which are full-kitchen suites) offer simple but elegant décor and are just a few breaths from the beach.
