“Playa Largo was conceived from a desire to offer visitors to Key Largo a luxurious and modern full-service resort option – something that until now wasn’t available here,” said Shakir Hussain, general manager. “We are redefining what it means to travel to the Florida Keys and are thrilled to be welcoming our first guests this week and our first groups soon after.”

From a 6,000-square-foot ballroom ideal for corporate events to a picturesque formal lawn perfect for banquets and weddings, this new resort provides a range of options for beach vacations, destination weddings and meetings.

Playa Largo Resort & Spa was brought to life by Prime Hospitality Group, a recognized developer in Florida, and Shaner Hotels, one of the foremost owner-operator companies in the hospitality industry. The chic Ameri-Caribbean look was conceptualized by Prime Design Associates, LLC while The Gettys Group is responsible for all interior design elements.
