The Cool Pool of the Week: Playa Largo Resort & Spa in Key Largo, Florida

Millennials vacationing in Florida may want to take a dip at the first new resort in the Upper Keys in more than two decades.

The recently opened Playa Largo Resort & Spa, located along 745 feet of beach on what used to be the nation’s largest pineapple farm, is the first new resort to be built in the Upper Keys in more than 21 years. 

The 100th addition to Marriott's exclusive "Autograph Collection" is just a short drive from Miami and offers a chic, laid-back escape.

The lagoon-style zero entry pool, open 24/7, offers prime sunset views over the water and leads to a beach area dotted with lounge chairs and innovative, freestanding hammocks. 

Private cabanas and lounge chairs offer guests plenty of options for poolside lounging and those looking to get cozy can find a spot by one of the fire pits. 

Next to the pool, guests can grab a bite and a cocktail at Sand Bar restaurant, serving dishes such as soft shell crab tacos, conch fritters and passion fruit caipirinhas made with fresh ingredients. Agents should note that the pool area can also be reserved for private events.
