First Green-Certified Resort in Key West

Hyatt Key West Resort & Spa has become the first "green-certified" resort complex on Key West after the Florida Green Lodging Program gave the property the One Palm designation. The award arrives on the heels of a recently completed $11 million renovation to achieve the resort's greening goals with a spa-inspired "tropical modern" design. To earn One Palm status, Hyatt Key West initiated 32 improvement projects in the specified areas of communication, water conservation, energy efficiency, waste reduction and clean air practices.
