Like much of Key West and the rest of the Florida Keys, Parrot Key Hotel & Villas took a beating from Hurricane Irma last year.
But now, the damage has been repaired. In fact, the entire resort has been reimagined and officially reopened for business in November. There are more innovations due to be finished by January 2019, but if you book now, Parrot Key is offering a sneak preview rate.
The property has been completely redesigned inside and out, including landscaping. Elegant touches abound. Example: upon your arrival, a greeter will hand you a signature welcome cocktail. We think Hemingway would approve. We know we do.
If it’s that active Key West vibe you crave, you’re covered. Guests have access to bicycles and Jet Skis. There are also four pools on the property. You can swim or lie around contemplating the universe or, you, know, nap like a normal vacationer.
Designer Bill Rooney has refurbished and remodeled the rooms. To us, they look like a cool, clean getaway. Glasses of wine look really enticing on that table.
The villas have up to four bedrooms, with plenty of space to entertain plus a wet bar.
In January, Parrot Key will introduce the “Waterfront Villa Experience,” aimed at making your stay even more memorable. Included are amenities small and large, like in-room yoga mats, ice service twice a day, French press coffee makers, bath amenities, nightly turn-down service and more.
The resort fee will also include a complimentary shuttle to the Beach Club, which is off-property and about 15 minutes away, as well as two beach chairs.
Sounds relaxing, right?
Also opening in January 2019 is The Grove Kitchen & Bar, which will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, focusing on classic island flavors. Expect breakfast tacos to go with your mimosa and ceviche and burgers at lunchtime.
