Grove Isle Hotel & Spa
Surrounded by tropical gardens, the Grove Isle Hotel & Spa is located on a 20-acre private island in Biscayne Bay. Each of the 50 guest rooms has a view of the water, as well as terracotta tile floors, brightly colored paintings, and glass sliding doors that open onto a private terrace or balcony. The pet-friendly property includes a waterfront walking trail, along with an outdoor pool, 12 tennis courts, and a spa with a Watsu pool for therapeutic stretching. Gibraltar, the resort’s indoor-outdoor restaurant, serves locally inspired dishes like diver sea scallops with tagliolini pasta and saffron-mango crème.
