A live-action re-run of Fantasy Island, the Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, A Noble House Resort is on its own private isle with 30 bungalows linked by seashell-lined paths. Accommodations start at a generous 550 square feet and all have thatched roofs, a separate living room, indoor Jacuzzi tub, outdoor bamboo shower and a canopied King bed. Enjoy meals (complete with ocean views) such as Mahi Mahi with creamy cilantro polenta, tomato salsa and scallion oil at the gourmet restaurant specializing in “modern tropical” cuisine. There’s also a grotto-like pool, the sandy shore and a library, but don’t expect TVs in the guest rooms, you’re here to live our your luxe Robinson Crusoe fantasy.
In the Area
The resort takes up all of Little Palm Island, but hotel guests aren’t the only inhabitants. There are Key deer on site and manatees, dolphins, sea turtles, fish, and birds galore. The pool is ideal for swimming while the beach is available for kayaking, sailing, or taking a fishing boat out. If all the splendid isolation gets to be a bit much, a 15-minute ride on the resort’s motor yacht “Truman” gets guests back to Little Torch Key and the overseas highway to Key West, where the restaurants and stores of Duval Street await, 29 miles away.
How to Get There
They cater too your every needs and you pay for it. This is where they filmed PT 109, Went here for a wedding and the Key Deer came up to the dinner table. This place is beautiful sitting in the middle of clean,blue water. The water taxi u take from the Overseas Highway is an amazing boat ride on a classic motor launch. A great time I will never forget.
We dreamed and planned for this celebration vacation for months. Unfortunately, it was the opposite. At arrival, we were told that we had received upgraded accommodates. I don't think so. As a matter of fact, this was the exact location that another review complained about.. I requested a particular room area (per a Tripadvisor warning), but was told that was not an option. The worse of the trip was that I was eaten by Noseeums and had an allergic reaction. I was miserable for weeks, covered in red itchy whelps. Nothing prevents them and nothing gives you relieve. No one stayed out to eat on the beach in the evenings due to these biting sandflies. The food was okay but not fantastic. However, the hospitality is awesome and the resort is beautiful. Sadly, no more Keys for me!
We had their top Grand Suite for 4 days. The Key deer were incredible. The suite was like a tree house. Fantastic and relaxing. Unfortunately I think hurricane Irma pretty much destroyed the property. I hope they can bring it back. Very special place. Only accessible by boat.
I took my husband for his retirement dinner prior to Irma, did not realize their fountain is infected with johns disease. This is a bacteria harmful to humans and that kills wildlife. Specifically the endangered tiny key deer that guests love to interact with. Had I known this dangerous bacteria had not been cleared up despite many complaints. This is very sad and a danger to guests. Noble house clean up your act.
This amazing resort exceeded all of my expectations! The staff was absolutely incredible, the majority with long employment tenures, and worked to ensure our vacation met all our needs. Renda, our concierge, was so delightful. She immediately made us feel at home as she oriented us to the Island and to the service offered. The spa services were fabulous - I'd recommend the couples services - and the therapists were very good. We explored the mangroves in kayaks and took one of the resort's boats to picnic island. So fun! I'd also recommend the private sunset cruise. Wishing everyone well after Hurricane Irma.
