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

With Restoration Complete, the Florida Keys Resort Welcomes Guests

Islamorada, FL.Nov 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 CondéNast 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.

Mobile Technology: Relentless Innovation

Technology has become a crucial component in attracting and retaining hotel guests, and the need to enhance a guest’s technology experience is driving a relentless pace of innovation. To meet and exceed guest expectations, 54% of hotels will spend more on technology in 2018, and mobile solutions in particular will top the list of capital investments. Many hotels are integrating mobile booking, mobile keys, mobile payments and mobile check-in into their operations. Other hotels are emphasizing the in-room experience, boosting bandwidth and upgrading flat screen TVs to more easily interface with guest mobile devices. And though not yet mainstream, there are many exciting technology developments on the near horizon. The Internet of Things (loT) is taking form in some places, and can be found in guest room control systems, voice activation systems, and in wearable sensors that can be used for access and payment options. Virtual reality headsets are available at some hotels so guests can enjoy virtual trips to exotic locations or if off-property, preview conference facilities and guest rooms. How long will it be before a hotel employs a fleet of robots for room service, or utilizes a hologram as a concierge, or installs gesture-controlled walls that feature interactive digital displays? Some hotels are already using augmented reality for translation services, or interactive wall maps, or even virtual décor. This pace of innovation is challenging property owners and brands to stay on top of the latest technology trends while still addressing current projects. The January Hotel Business Review will explore what some hotels are doing to maximize their opportunities in the mobile technology space.
