Hawks Cay Resort on Duck Key

Closed since Hurricane Irma, a landmark resort in the Florida Keys is scheduled to reopen August 30 following a $50 million renovation.

Hawks Cay Resort will reopen with a fresh design for its main hotel, two new restaurants and expanded programming for guests.

Hawks Cay has 177 guest rooms, 250 villas with two or three bedrooms, six restaurants, five swimming pools a saltwater lagoon and a full-service marina.

The 60-acre resort is located on Duck Key, about halfway between Key Largo and Key West, at Mile Marker 61.

Hurricane Irma made U.S. landfall Sept. 10, 2017, on Cudjoe Key at Mile Marker 20.

The hotel’s redesigned lobby, guestrooms and public areas have a new coastal décor.

Since Irma, “we’ve focused on the physical changes” to Hawks Cay, Sheldon Suga, vice president and managing director of Hawks Cay, said in a prepared statement. “But we’ve also taken this opportunity to spend a lot of creative moments on the experiential programming for our guests as well.”

Hawks Cay will reopen with family-oriented entertainment, including performances by “Captain Hawk” and  “Priscilla the Pirate Queen” at the Pirate Ship swimming pool and “Koral the Mermaid” at the Coral Cay pool. A new adults-only area called Oasis Cay will be introduced, too.

The Aug. 30 reopening of the resort also will feature the introduction of Sixty-one Prime, a restaurant offering prime steaks and signature seafood dishes, and Hawks Cay Mark, a casual restaurant serving sandwiches, salads and pizzas. – Mike Seemuth
