2015 marks a milestone year for The Luxury Collection in North America, as the hospitality chain continues to debut marquee conversion hotels and invest in landmark renovations. Close to the vibrant energy of Key West, Starwood announced the debut of Sunset Key Cottages as a Luxury Collection resort in a destination designed for the new generation of luxury travelers.
Sunset Key Cottages joins The Luxury Collection’s portfolio of 15 diverse hotels in North America, ranging from the iconic Palace Hotel in San Francisco to the modern, art-deco Chatwal hotel in New York.
Poised on the secluded 27-acre island of Sunset Key, the resort embraces the island’s natural beauty, ocean views and 40 luxuriously appointed two-, three- and four-bedroom cottages with quaint foot paths that lead guests through the resort’s lush tropical landscape. Guests are first greeted at the resort’s mainland porte-cochère and whisked away via private boat for a short cruise to Sunset Key Island. Guests are then welcomed by the resort’s signature cocktail, frozen-sweet treats and The Luxury Collection brand’s signature concierge service.
Sunset Key Cottages features an epicurean experience at Latitudes, the resort’s waterfront all-day dining restaurant with seating on the water’s edge where guests are surrounded by gorgeous views of the Gulf of Mexico. The secluded resort also features an intimate spa with spacious treatment suites, a relaxation room, and private verandas for guests to relax after locally-inspired treatments including wraps, scrubs, facials, and massages. The hotel offers access to a fitness center, two tennis courts, a basketball court, and signature ‘tropical free-form, zero-degree entry pool’.
