Bungalows Key Largo, billed as the only all-inclusive adults-only resort in the Florida Keys, is now closed after an early morning fire broke out in the restaurant in the main clubhouse on Sunday.

The resort website says that no guest accommodations were affected by the fire, but that all guests have been evacuated from the property. The website also states that the resort will be closed until further notice, and that the operations team is reaching out to guests with current and future reservations to help rebook stays.

Local resident Tara Giacinto posted video of the fire to her social media showing the fire at the property.

This poor beautiful resort. We got woken up at 5 AM to a man screaming into our room FIRE ! We were the closest bungalow…

Part of the Noble House Hotels & Resorts group, Bungalows Key Largo opened its doors to guests in January. The adults-only luxury resort, which describes itself as an “island oasis built for downtime and disconnecting,” is located 65 miles south of Miami International Airport (MIA).
