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

With Restoration Complete, the Florida Keys Resort Welcomes Guests

USA, Islamorada, Florida. 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.

Hotel Spa: Oasis Unplugged

The driving force in current hotel spa trends is the effort to manage unprecedented levels of stress experienced by their clients. Feeling increasingly overwhelmed by demanding careers and technology overload, people are craving places where they can go to momentarily escape the rigors of their daily lives. As a result, spas are positioning themselves as oases of unplugged human connection, where mindfulness and contemplation activities are becoming increasingly important. One leading hotel spa offers their clients the option to experience their treatments in total silence - no music, no talking, and no advice from the therapist - just pure unadulterated silence. Another leading hotel spa is working with a reputable medical clinic to develop a “digital detox” initiative, in which clients will be encouraged to unplug from their devices and engage in mindfulness activities to alleviate the stresses of excessive technology use. Similarly, other spas are counseling clients to resist allowing technology to monopolize their lives, and to engage in meditation and gratitude exercises in its place. The goal is to provide clients with a warm, inviting and tranquil sanctuary from the outside world, in addition to also providing genuine solutions for better sleep, proper nutrition, stress management and natural self-care. To accomplish this, some spas are incorporating a variety of new approaches - cryotherapy, Himalayan salt therapy and ayurveda treatments are becoming increasingly popular. Other spas are growing their own herbs and performing their treatments in lush outdoor gardens. Some spa therapists are being trained to assess a client's individual movement patterns to determine the most beneficial treatment specifically for them. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how some hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
