Hawks Cay Resort, which has been closed for renovation since Hurricane Irma hit the Florida Keys in September 2017, will reopen tomorrow, Aug. 30, 2018, unveiling a refreshed resort experience.
The $50 million renovation focused on the main hotel with a brand-new design of the lobby, 177 guestrooms, and public areas. Inside the main hotel guests will find a new coastal-inspired look that is infused with a color palette of tropical hues and incorporates a range of natural seaside elements.
The introduction of two restaurant concepts will complement the resort’s new look, providing both fine-dining and fast-casual options. Sixty-one Prime will feature a menu of prime steaks and signature seafood dishes, as well as a selection of seasonal specials presented by executive chef William Ryan and restaurant chef Adam Matyi. For the first time ever, guests will be able to coordinate a romantic private dining experience from Sixty-one Prime in their guestroom or around the Saltwater Lagoon. In addition, Hawks Cay Marketplace will open as a casual eatery serving a fresh menu of salads, sandwiches and pizzas that can be easily taken to-go. Also part of the renovations is Oasis Cay, a new adults-only area appealing to the 21 and older crowd. An expansion of the Tranquility Pool, the larger Oasis Cay area now includes a bar and grill that features its own menu of island-inspired bites and specialty drinks.
“After months of restoration and hard work, we’re eager to reopen and introduce guests to the reimagined Hawks Cay,” said Sheldon Suga, Hawks Cay Resort v.p. managing director, in press materials. “We’re bringing back what guests loved about Hawks Cay with a fresh design in the main hotel and new experiences that will take the Resort into a new era.”
Opening in time for its 10th annual Heroes Salute kickoff event, which takes place over Labor Day weekend, Hawks Cay Resort will celebrate the holiday with a full schedule of events including a 5K run/walk, a live music concert, a heroes tribute ceremony, and fireworks.
