Hotel Overview

You wake up to a blissful quiet, broken only by a heron's call and the gentle lap of waves. You snuggle closer. A cloud of soft linen envelops you in a comfortable cocoon. You dream of your trip here last night on The Truman, the 35 foot launch named after one of the island's most famous guests, and glide again through sultry waters to arrive at this remote island full of Jamaican palms and exotic blossoms. And you wonder if you can ever leave. Welcome to Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, the internationally acclaimed private island paradise, listed among the top resorts in the world by Condé Nast Traveler and Travel+Leisure magazine.

Tucked offshore of Little Torch Key and accessible only by boat or seaplane, the resort is a world unto itself, alive with hidden pleasures. Crushed seashell paths wind through lush gardens to thatched-roof bungalows, which serve as your guest quarters. Extra spacious, each suite and grand suite has romantic touches such as a king-size bed draped in butterfly netting, verandahs with ocean views and, in some rooms, private outdoor showers and jetted tubs.

From the lagoon-style pool to the meditative Zen Garden or the cozy Great Room library, a perfect serenity sweeps over you as you wander the island. Oversized hammocks beckon from the trees. Lounge chairs nestled in the sand call from the beach. And at the end of the day, return to your private bungalow for peaceful seclusion to dream again.


At Little Palm, every dining experience is special. The casual elegance of the Dining Room is just one place to enjoy our renowned cuisine. Our custom service makes it possible to turn any setting around the island into the ideal dining spot, from ocean-side banquets to romantic dining experience on the Sunset Dock. You don't even have to be on the premises to enjoy the resort's epicurean delights; Executive Chef, Luis Pous and his culinary team will prepare the ultimate picnic for your next Florida Keys adventure.


Accessible only by boat or seaplane, Little Palm Island Resort & Spa represents the ultimate escape. As you cross clear, turquoise waters on your journey to the island, bid adieu to life as you know it. You're about to enter a new reality; one where the white-sandy beach welcomes you ashore and the Jamaican palms wave in welcome.

During your stay at the beach resort, we invite you to surrender all those modern-day "conveniences" that can hinder you from truly living in the moment. There are no alarm clocks or televisions and cell phones are virtually non-existent on the Island. Instead, your wake-up call will be the sound of island birds chirping out your window. For your viewing pleasure, enjoy a daily showing of tropical seascapes and crimson sunsets.

Take your pick of the resort's twenty-eight secluded oceanfront bungalows, quietly nestled among palm trees.

Bungalow Suite
Feel worlds away in the peaceful seclusion of your thatched-roof bungalow, nestled at the ocean's edge. The resort's 14 luxury bungalows accommodations are comprised of two separate one-bedroom suites, each featuring luxurious touches like a king canopy bed draped in butterfly netting, a spacious living room, an indoor and private outdoor shower, a dressing room, and a private verandah overlooking the beach and ocean. Each 550 square foot suite is fully air condioned and has a Nespresso coffe maker, mini bar and safe.

Island Grand Suite
Spend your days basking in 1,000-square feet suite featuring wrought-iron chandeliers, fine imported furnishings, slate floors, and wooden ceiling fans. Enjoy a His and Hers bathroom and a separate dining area. Or spend most of your time on the verandah, where you'll be spoiled by the island's best sunset views from your private hot tub.
