Islamorada's Amara Cay Resort Re-Opens Following Hurricane Irma

With Restoration Complete, the Florida Keys Resort Welcomes Guests

Islamorada, FL. November 28, 2017 - 

Islamorada, Fla. (November 28, 2017) - Amara Cay Resort, the oceanfront beach resort anchored in the laid-back style and lighthearted atmosphere of Islamorada, is set to re-open its doors on Friday, Dec. 15, 2017 after closing for repairs following Hurricane Irma. Perfectly aligning with the official end of hurricane season, Amara Cay Resort celebrates the strength of the Florida Keys.

“We are thrilled to welcome guests back to our slice of paradise,” said Eddie Sipple, area general manager of Islamorada Resort Company. “I am incredibly grateful to the dedicated team of construction workers and associates who worked diligently to restore Amara Cay Resort. We are re-opening this resort with pride and a true sense of community.”

Recognized in November as a ‘Top Resort in the Florida Keys’ by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler, Amara Cay Resort will open its 110 guestrooms and suites, a beautiful new resort pool, spectacular wedding venues, Reelburger restaurant and resort grounds with kitschy games and lush lawns.

Inspired by Islamorada’s claim to fame as the “Sport Fishing Capital of the World,” Reelburger’s all-day dining menu presents gourmet burgers, hearty “burger bowl” salads and social starters. Handcrafted burgers with unique toppings and condiments are sandwiched between toasted brioche buns and served alongside a crunchy pickle and choice of kettle chips, signature, house-made slaw or crispy hand cut fries, perfectly seasoned with truffle sea salt and fresh herbs. The craftsmanship focused on the food continues behind the bar with a well-rounded list of tiki and craft cocktails, specialty shakes, beer and premium wine.

The chic yet understated resort rests along the Atlantic Ocean presenting lush lawns and palm-peppered, graceful views making an authentic sense of place with comforts of the ‘Keys Life’. Blending time-honored diversions with pure relaxation, the casually redefined Amara Cay Resort inspires guests to curate a personal, non-scripted journey the #AmaraCayVacay way.

Human Resources: Value Creation

Businesses must evolve to stay competitive and this is also true of employment positions within those organizations. In the hotel industry, for example, the role that HR professionals perform continues to broaden and expand. Today, they are generally responsible for five key areas - government compliance; payroll and benefits; employee acquisition and retention; training and development; and organizational structure and culture. In this enlarged capacity, HR professionals are no longer seen as part of an administrative cost center, but rather as a member of the leadership team that creates strategic value within their organization. HR professionals help to define company policies and plans; enact and enforce systems of accountability; and utilize definable metrics to measure and justify outcomes. Of course, there are always new issues for HR professionals to address. Though seemingly safe for the moment, will the Affordable Care Act ultimately be repealed and replaced and, if so, what will the ramifications be? There are issues pertaining to Millennials in the workforce and women in leadership roles, as well as determining the appropriate use of social media within the organization. There are new onboarding processes and e-learning training platforms to evaluate, in addition to keeping abreast of political issues like the minimum wage hike movement, or the re-evaluation of overtime rules. Finally, there are genuine immigration and deportation issues that affect HR professionals, especially if they are located in Dreamer Cities, or employ a workforce that could be adversely impacted by federal government policies. The March Hotel Business Review will take a look at some of the issues, strategies and techniques that HR professionals are employing to create and sustain value in their organization.
