The autumn chill and dark days of winter are upon us. If you long for sand and surf 24/7/365, consider escaping to The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne in Miami, Florida.
Located on a secluded barrier island, this resort radiates barefoot, tropical luxury all year long.
Experience Miami life while staying in newly redesigned ocean-view suites. Tennis lovers should make a date to play at the Cliff Drysdale Tennis Center, designed by the tennis legend and sports commentator himself. Recognized by “Tennis” magazine as one of the 50 best facilities in the country, the Center offers 11 courts, clinics, and lessons for players of all ages.
Golfers will want to challenge their skills at one of Miami’s premier golf courses. As one of the "Top 100 Golf Resorts" by Condé Nast Traveler, the picturesque and challenging par-72 course Crandon Golf Course is minutes from the resort and recognized as one of America's top 75 upscale courses by Golf Digest. The combination of challenging greens and beautiful settings provides an unparalleled playing experience.
After working up a sweat (and an appetite), you will want to enjoy twilight cocktails and dinner at Lightkeepers. The oceanfront restaurant features locally sourced ingredients and fresh seafood alongside a panoramic ocean view.
The Ritz-Carlton is well located within a coconut’s throw of some of Miami’s most popular attractions. Visit the landmark Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, a European-inspired estate with 10 acres of greenery. Grab your tote bags and stop at CocoWalk or Lincoln Road Mall for some of the city’s best shopping, and take in the 1825 lighthouse at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park and admire the stunning seascapes.
Remember, no trip to Miami is complete without a visit to the Miami Seaquarium. Enjoy amazing marine mammal shows and immerse the entire family in world-class sea life exhibits complete with manatees, sea turtles, penguins, rays, and more. The attraction also offers a once-in-a-lifetime chance to swim with dolphins. The Seaquarium also has a Conservation Outpost where you can learn about wildlife rescue and marine animal care.
Mark your calendars, and book your flights. This is the place to celebrate life while renewing family connections. With something for everyone, including an immersive and adventurous Ritz Kids program, superbly crafted luxury experiences for adults, and plenty of activities to enjoy together, this Florida vacation is sure to be unforgettable.
