A Table for Two

Treat those taste buds to the tropical flavors of the Florida Keys at our award-winning restaurant, Butterfly Cafe, and breathe in the balmy air as you indulge in al fresco feasting together. Choose from fresh seafood favorites, such as Mahi Mahi with a mango salsa or the Scallop Risotto with piquillo pepper cream. We’ll help you select the finest wine and pair the coolest cocktail with your romantic dinner for two.

Underwater Love

Dive into those turquoise waters to explore tropical fish and colorful corals on a serene snorkel trip together, or go a little deeper on a dive trip to one of Marathon’s most spectacular sites including Sombrero Reef, Coffins Patch and Delta Shoal. Turtle Island Adventures can guide you to the best locations for an underwater adventure beneath the blue.

Oceanside Indulgence

Step outside your intimate Tropical Garden Guestroom or luxury Beach House and within moments you will feel the fine sand of our pristine beach beneath your feet. The 2.5 acre stretch of white sand beach is the perfect place for switching down a few gears together as you soak up the sun and relax in our peaceful haven. Whether you choose to read a good book under the shade, stroll along the ocean’s edge, or cruise through the calm waters on a range of watersports from kayaking to paddle boarding, you’ll feel truly refreshed as you lose yourselves on “island time.”
