Among the most beautiful island resorts in all of Florida, Little Palm Island on Little Torch Key is ideal for travelers seeking a relaxing and restorative 5 star holiday. The tiny private island off the coast of Key West – only accessible by boat or seaplane – is home to 30 beach bungalows, most of which face the sparkling waters. The romantic getaway is best suited to couples, though children 16 and over may stay.
“Starting from the southernmost tip of the Florida and forming a natural crescent of palm-lined islands, the Florida Keys are just a small step from the mainland United States with a climate more similar to the Caribbean,” explain Jonathan and Katrina Howe from Two Monkeys Travel. “When you enter the Florida Keys, either by plane or by the stunning road bridge across the islands, you will recognize the sense of entering a whole new world, full of colorful buildings and colorful characters. The Florida Keys really is a destination of luxury and relaxation, but one unlike anything you’ve seen before!” Take a seaplane to explore the beaches and wildlife on the the Dry Tortugas Islands, go for a bicycle ride on the Seven-Mile Bridge, or jet ski around Key West for a day of adventure. The best way to get to Little Palm Island Resort and Spa is by chartering a private jet to Marathon International Airport.

To get to Mii amo, charter a private jet to Sedona Airport, just eight miles from the spa.
