The decor and spa-like aromas immediately put us in a relaxed state of mind. We loved the bathrobes, balcony and bath bomb for the large bathtub in the room. The aroma-rich shampoos, soaps, and lotions were an added touch. ~ Melissa B. via TripAdvisor
About Key West Aloe
Our roots go back to a single moment when aloe vera was applied to a sunburn in 1971, long before the term SPF was invented. It worked so well on burned skin, we wondered what it could do continuously for healthy skin? And thus, Key West Aloe was born. From that point on, our mission has been to create a wide range of luxurious blends, all using nature's best ingredient as our primary ingredient.
Fun Fact: The founders of Key West Aloe, Joe Liszka and Frank Romano, were also two of the founding fathers of Fantasy Fest, one of the world’s best costume festivals.

Welcome to paradise! You know you’ve arrived at our resort when you are greeted by the colorful, vibrant outdoor sculpture “5 Watchers” by Key West Pottery's Adam Russell.

“5 Watchovers represents a guardian for each of the five aspects we determined appropriate for this place specifically.
In this grouping we included: The Watchover of the Navigator, The Watchover of the Feeling, The Watchover of the Conch Republic, The Watchover of the Red Sky, and the Watchover of the Surrounding Life. Each tower is stacked with imagery and meaning leading up to a quiet Pelican, who sits on top with a marshal but calm eye of protection for his surroundings. The inspiration is twofold; I am heavily referencing very traditional ideas from art history within this concept and at the same time, this is what one actually observes in the real world! These pelicans on patrol, perched up high. Smarter, quicker, and more comfortable than many of their avian counterparts, they seemed like the perfect local archetype.” ~ Adam Russell Read more.
