Florida: Cheeca Lodge and Spa
Cost: Rooms starting at about $400 per night
Islamorada's Cheeca Lodge and Spa is one of the best-kept secrets in the Sunshine State. This time capsule to everything great about the Keys encompasses 1,200 feet of palmy beaches, 27 acres of gardens, three restaurants, a 525-foot pier, one Tiki bar, a nine-hole golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus and zero Disney World tourists.
Though Cheeca was impacted by Hurricane Irma, a rep tells us that a new, $20 million renovation will "restore it to all its south Florida glory" when the lodge reopens to the public on March 30, 2018.
