Perched on the secluded, gulf side of Key Largo, Florida is Baker’s Cay Resort, part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, the brand’s first property to open in the Keys. Debuting in February 2019, with 200 guestrooms spread out across more than thirteen lush acres, Baker’s Cay is a romantic, nature-inspired resort. Beach lovers will enjoy all the aquatic options, from paddleboarding to kayaking, sunset cruising and more on the beautiful shores.
Here’s the Scoop
Baker’s Cay Resort is the perfect luxury basecamp for exploring south Florida’s fabled waters. With great design, private beaches, killer food and so much to do, Baker’s Cay is a lively, sophisticated addition to the Key Largo scene.
Get the Dish
Dry Rocks, overlooking Coconut Beach, is the place to go for shrimp tacos and ceviche. In addition to the certified tequila connoisseurs who will gladly share their expertise, Dry Rocks also features live music and a complimentary nightly sunset champagne toast. For fancier fare, head upstairs to Calusa for Caribbean-Creole dishes that take full advantage of the island’s abundant local ingredients. Think conch fritters, lobster pasta and, and key lime pie.
Out and About
Let’s get real: the calm, glass like water is one of the main attractions of this magical destination. Baker’s Cay Resort offers plenty of ways to explore the gorgeous sea including recreational water activities built into your room rate. Meaning, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, giant floaties and aqua cycling are complimentary with your reservation. Feeling more adventurous? Try parasailing or booking a fishing expedition, taking off in a seaplane, zipping around on a jet ski, or getting up close and personal with the fish. Not your thing? Spend the day at the resort’s two private beaches, the tranquil Hammock Beach or the more “happening” Coconut Beach. Lounging with a fruity cocktail in hand always tastes better when your toes are in the sand and there’s crashing waves in the background.
