Using a design vocabulary drawn from sea glass, shell tones, and sand dunes, the interiors of the hotel will create an atmosphere that blends American and Caribbean influences. This complete resort property will also have 10 private bungalows, a full-service restaurant and a beach club for local residents.

Situated on 14 secluded beachfront acres boasting views of Florida Bay, guest accommodations will include 155 luxury rooms, suites and bungalows with Florida Bay and eco-rich island views. There will be multiple restaurants, and outdoor amenities will include watersports, eco tours, diving and snorkeling, fishing and lounging.

During her first year leading the Miami studio, Masch has overseen the design work for a number of high profile properties and renovations to existing hotels throughout the US and in the Caribbean and South America. Aside from the Autograph Playa Largo Resort, other recent highlights from The Gettys Group’s Miami studio include Doubletree Nashville, and Wyndham Lake Buena Vista in Orlando, Fla.
