Casa Morada, Florida: hotel of the week

Posted by Laura House on September 27th, 2013

We’re craving an escape that feels authentically off the grid. Oh, unlimited sunshine, sand between our toes and a private island locale would help set the scene, too. Lucky for us, Casa Morada, in Southern Florida, ticks all of those boxes… and then some. Set in the mellow Florida Keys, this boutique hotel hideout is a 90-mile, head-clearing drive from Miami and the ideal spot away from daily distractions to lose (or find) yourself…

Why this week? Curious about what it might be like to have an island all to yourself? There is a lull in the Florida Keys this time of year, making this private island seem even more secluded – especially during the week. And, right now you can save 15 per cent off room rates for mid-week stays through October. Casa Morada, Florida Keys, Mr & Mrs Smith boutique hotels

Our favourite bits… Lush landscaping and minimalist design makes this intimate, 16-suite boutique bolthole on the bay an antidote to the kitsch of the Keys. Rock the days away from one of the hammocks hung between the swaying palm trees surrounding the pool. Gaze out at the glittering Gulf of Mexico from your yoga mat each morning…your sunlounger in the sand…or right from your sprawling suite just a saunter from the shore. What grid?

Mr & Mrs Smith say…‘Like the orchids that grow in the wild Everglades, Casa Morada is a special find among its surroundings. Except in this case, that find is a serene adults-only haven in a busy tourist destination known for fried fish and family-Casa Morada, Florida Keys, Mr & Mrs Smith boutique hotelsfriendliness. Each bedroom is decorated with Mexican antiques, simple furniture and crisp linens, with large windows out, and a private terrace, many of which are set by the sea. Fittingly, there are also orchids in the room. Perhaps they’re meant as a reminder of just how rare and special Casa Morada is.’ Read the full Casa Morada review…

  1. My husband and I have booked a room there for early 2014. I can’t wait to go there now. It looks amazing.
