Experience Unbeatable Luxury and Nature at The Islands of Islamorada

The Florida Keys resort is a quiet escape surrounded by the ocean.

At times, all we want for a vacation is a quiet escape. An escape to a beautiful place by the ocean, a place where relaxation is the most important thing to do on your agenda, and where you can enjoy some quiet along with some fun. Well, you’re in for quite the discovery, because I had the chance to experience this at a property tucked away at the Florida Keys. A place that feels like not just a vacation, but also felt like a luxurious home away from home. This secret haven is the The Islands of Islamorada, a gorgeous resort that sits on a quiet beachside corner at the The Islands of Islamorada in the Florida Keys.

The Islands of Islamorada is a place where elegance meets all the amenities of a home. Think plush couches, balconies that face the ocean and nature, walk-in closets, expansive bedrooms and a kitchen meant for an evening dinner party with your closest friends, family or your significant other.

In fact, the townhomes make visitors feel like they are a part of a quiet and cozy residential area. That makes the villas at the The Islands of Islamorada resort is what could be described as one were you can step into the home of your dreams, one that you can enjoy for a few days, a week or beyond.

I had the chance to visit the The Islands of Islamorada with close friends, another couple and my husband. The goal for the weekend was to relax and explore the island and resort. And all those needs were met and exceeded our expectations.

When we walked into our villa, or fridge was stocked with some of our favorite snacks and drinks. The kitchen was fully furnished with everything that a visitor might need to cook a feast. The rooms had plush bedding and television sets for those who need a little background noise or good movie or show to watch before a good night’s sleep. The bathrooms are also expansive and comfortable and there are enough of them to fit a large group.

Guests can also use the iPad to see the photo’s names and the artists that created the pieces inside the villa. It’s a wonderful educational experience for all visitors and a unique experience that we enjoyed during our visit.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
