Hawks Cay Resort in Florida Keys enters final phase of renovation

Hawks Cay Resort, a Florida Keys resort destination, entered the final phase of a multi-million dollar renovation. The project touches nearly every aspect of the resort, from the landscape architecture and exterior reception area to the lobby and guestrooms, as well as meetings facilities, Calm Waters Spa and the kids' activities center.

The renovation is part of the re-launch program initiated by Carey Watermark Investors, which acquired the resort in the fall of 2013. Pyramid Hotel Group, the resort's new management company, is overseeing the project.

The resort has taken on a coastal casual design, infused with a range of aqua and blue hues that overlap a palette of whites and light grays. As part of the renovation, the resort added a variety of new amenities and activities, including luxury cabanas at the adults-only pool area, and penthouses equipped for stargazing. The renovated kids' activities center has a new high-tech hangout for teens and an expanded educational program complete with an indoor, saltwater touch tank for Island Adventure Camp, designed for children age five to 12.
