Bungalows Key Largo, on the Northernmost island of the Florida Keys, is the first-ever all-inclusive in the Keys, just 63 miles south of Miami, according to the resort. The new adults-only accommodation will take travelers to a botanical garden right along the ocean, with the amazing Everglades National Park not too far away.

Bungalows Key Largo is made up of 135 private bungalows, each with a veranda with a soaking tub and outdoor garden shower. Guests will also be able to enjoy two pools and two Jacuzzi tubs, three piers, and beach cabanas along the shore where they can enjoy the sunset views.

Since much of the appeal in an all-inclusive comes down to the food, guests can stop by three restaurants: Bogie & Bacall’s for fine dining and wine pairings, the beachside Sea Señor for Mexican food, or the casual seafood restaurant, Fish Tales. There are also floating tiki boats where swimmers can pick up a drink, a food truck for a bite on the beach, or the Sunset Tiki Bar where guests can sip on cocktails.

For those who want to get out an explore, each bungalow comes with two cruiser bikes, and there are also daily yoga classes, snorkeling and paddleboarding. The resort’s location in the Keys means that guests can also snorkel their way through the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, or head out on glass-bottom boat tours.
