Hawks Cay Resort has announced that it will launch a renovation that will enhance the look and feel of the 60-acre resort. Closed due to the impact sustained from Hurricane Irma, the resort in Duck Key, FL, will reopen in phases throughout 2018 with the grand reopening scheduled to take place next summer.

Locals and visitors will soon be able to make reservations at the Angler & Ale, the resort’s waterfront restaurant, and the Calm Waters Spa, both of which will open early next year. Before the summer, the resort will welcome back guests with a soft opening in the second quarter of 2018.

“We want to thank our friends, fans and guests for their patience since Hurricane Irma,” said Sheldon Suga, VP managing director. “The Resort is structurally sound and the restoration team has been working around the clock to get us to a place where we can come out with a clear vision of the work that needs to be done.”
