Key Largo Gets First New Resort in 20 Years

By: Kara Franker


Playa Largo Resort & Spa is set to open on Key Largo in the summer of 2015, the first new full-service resort to be built on Key Largo in 20 years.

Inspired by Key Largo’s ecosystem and natural beauty, the new luxury resort will sit on 14.5 waterfront acres. I couldn’t help but want to get a sneak-peek at the progress, so I went to a lovely sunset soiree held on the property. And here's a shot I took of the sun sinking into the horizon...
