All-inclusive resorts are all the rage these days, and often can be a great cost-effective vacation option. Most commonly found in locations like the Bahamas or Mexico, you can now get the full Caribbean-like experience without ever leaving the country.

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) and boasts a plethora of garden and waterfront villas.

Property amenities include an oceanfront infinity pool; Zen Garden Spa with steam room and sauna; Fitness Tiki Hut with state-of-the-art cardio and weight training essentials; access to Coconut Beach; complimentary non-motorized watersports such as water trikes, stand-up paddleboards, snorkeling equipment and sea kayaks; daily sunrise yoga sessions and complimentary sunset cruises (with a five-night stay or longer). Guests can dine in any of six restaurants (including a food truck called Largo Larry’s) and bars, which all feature “locally sourced ingredients and top-shelf spirits.”

For a limited time, garden bungalows can be booked for as low as $399 per person, per night for minimum 2-night stays throughout Dec. 19, 2019 (blackout dates and restrictions apply). The 1,100-square-foot rooms come with: a private veranda with soaking tub and outdoor shower, a private patio furnished with Adirondack chairs, an indoor spa bathroom with rain shower, and two bicycles. The 900-square foot waterfront bungalows start at $499 and will get you: a secluded oceanfront veranda with deep soaking tub, a private patio furnished with Adirondack chairs, an indoor spa bathroom with rain shower, direct access to the semi-private beach, and two bicycles.

If renting a car at the airport and driving to the resort is not your idea of vacation, take the scenic route with Staniel Air’s seaplane service from Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport. The “40-minute picturesque flight” will give guests a “bird’s eye look at coastal Florida in all its splendor.” According to Staniel’s website, flights are regularly $299 per person one-way, or $598 round-trip.
