My incredible stay at The Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne
I recently visited Miami for Art Basel but decided to change things up a bit. I normally stay in South Beach, right in the heart of all the hustle and bustle, but this time I decided to stay at The Ritz Carlton in Key Biscayne and couldn’t be happier with my decision! Don’t get me wrong, Miami Beach is a great area filled with night life but it gets a little out of hand during Art Basel. Key Biscayne is a short 15-minute drive away and much nicer in my opinion.
The Ritz property in Key Biscayne is just beautiful! The service is impeccable, the staff is beyond accommodating and the rooms are fabulous with an incredible ocean view.
The resort has two separate oceanfront pools, a family-friendly pool with cascading waterfalls and a separate “adult only” pool that is very serene and perfect for getting and little rest and relaxation (just don’t fall asleep because you might wake up to an iguana staring at you haha).
This particular property has a 20,000-square-foot Forbes Four-Star luxury Spa and Salon, the largest Tennis Center of any Ritz-Carlton with 11 courts and even water recreation activities, which include windsurfing, sailing and kayaking.
There are various restaurants in the hotel but my personal favorite was Cantina Beach, Miami’s only oceanfront, coastal Mexican restaurant. Besides the delicious food, you will be more than impressed with the décor. The restaurant is located right on the beach with beautiful seating right near the water with a very chic Tiki bar vibe.
Last but not least, I highly recommend staying on the club level, especially if you are traveling with your family! Boy oh boy was this the best thing ever! They serve an incredible breakfast buffet, a light lunch and horde ours in the evening. You can stop in at anytime during the day and you are bound to find delicious snacks and beverages. The club level package even includes your own personal concierge, which was just priceless! I have stayed at various Ritz-Carlton resorts but I have to admit this was my favorite and I can’t wait to go back!
