The adults-only Little Palm Resort & Spa on Little Torch Key in the Florida Keys was named one of the best 100 hotels in the world by Travel + Leisure.

Two South Florida hotels are among the best hotels in the world, according to a popular travel website.

Travel + Leisure just released its 100 Best Hotels in the World list, and hotels in Miami Beach and on Little Torch Key in the Florida Keys made the cut, as well as one hotel in Palm Beach.

At No. 81 on the list, Nobu Hotel Miami Beach, designed to mimic a Japanese beach house, was praised for its luxuries. Travel + Leisure writes: “The list of world-class amenities at this David Rockwell-designed beachfront hotel is impressively long: exceptional epicurean delights, a beautiful 22,000-square-foot spa, three pools, a private marina, and luxurious penthouse-level villas.”

Little Palm Island Resort & Spa on Little Torch Key was No. 94 on the list. The adults-only resort, on a private island in the Florida Keys, “is accessible only by boat or seaplane. The 30 water-view bungalows have no TVs, encouraging tropical revelry of a more laid-back nature (think kayaking and snorkeling).”

The resort also made Condé Nast Traveler’s 2021 Hot List for its “fresh take on tropical chic.”
