Northwood Investors has completed the acquisition of the Cheeca Lodge & Spa, a 214-room full service luxury resort in South Florida, the company announced yesterday.

The Cheeca, in the Florida Keys, is situated less than 90 minutes from Miami by car. The property was completely renovated in the past few years, adding waterview suites, new dining venues and upgraded meeting space.

“This acquisition demonstrates our commitment to high quality hotels and our ability to transact quickly and efficiently. We look forward to building upon Cheeca’s legacy as a premier destination,” said Jonathan Wang, managing director of Northwood.

Herbert Spiegel, general manager of Cheeca Lodge & Spa, has been associated with the property for over 15 years. “I love this place so much,” he said, “I was married here. We look forward to continuing our commitment to the Florida Keys community and all of our neighbors. We would also like to welcome back all of our past guests to see what we have accomplished here.” — Katherine Clarke
