Escape to the Amara Cay Resort in Islamorada this Winter
Winters are tough in the northeast – this one brought a lot more snow than usual! Head down to Florida for sunshine, palm trees and bliss this Winter! The Amara Cay Resort is located on the beautiful Islamorada, only an hour and a half from Miami Beach. Keep reading to find out why you should visit the Amara Cay Resort this Winter, or any month of this year!
Getting to Miami from New York
There are multiple nonstop flights that can take you from New York City’s La Guardia or JFK airports to Miami or Fort Lauderdale airports. My husband and I opted to drive down with our dogs. While the drive is around 1,300 miles and can be done in 2 days, we decided to take our time and enjoy the trip. Islamorada is located halfway between Miami Beach and Key West, away from the touristy spots in The Keys, so it is the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway.
Why You Should Stay in Islamorada
January, February and March are the best months to escape New York’s snow and enjoy Islamorada. If you are looking for an ocean-front property with a laid-back atmosphere, then Amara Cay Resort is the place for you. Amara Cay Resort has 110 rooms, each with its private balcony. The resort has its own heated pool and private beach for guests to enjoy. Both my husband and I LOVED the hammocks, thatched huts and stunning ocean views. Waking up with those sunrises was quite magical!
Another reason why you should stay at Amara Cay Resort is the amenities the property has to offer. Enjoy bicycles, kayaks, paddleboards and board games on their outdoor lawn, or take a dip in their heated pool before heading to the Tiki Bar for a refreshing piña colada!
Accommodations at Amara Cay Resort
During our recent stay at Amara Cay Resort, we were blessed to stay in one of their oceanfront suites on the top floor, which had a living room, a balcony, one bathroom, and a spacious room with a King bed. The views from this room are spectacular, and staying there felt like a home away from home.
Where To Eat
Reel Burger & Tiki Bar: Breezy poolside spot for classic American cuisine and tropical cocktails against a backdrop of swaying palm trees. Their grilled chicken cesar salad and key lime pie were both amazing!
Ciao Hound Italian Kitchen & Bar: At Ciao Hound I enjoyed some of the best appetizers I’ve ever had in my life! I highly recommend the baked spinach artichoke fonduta and their prosciutto wrapped shrimp. For dinner, my husband and I both picked the mahi-mahi, and it was excellent.
