Luxury resort Isla Bella Beach Resort opened Monday in the Florida Keys. The property, developed by The Singh Company, features 199 guestrooms, three dining venues, the 4,000-square-foot Hibiscus Center, an additional 20,000 square feet of meeting and event, nearly a mile of private beach, five swimming pools, a fishing pier and a marina.

Isla Bella Beach Resort is located on Knights Key in Marathon, Fla., two hours from Miami and one hour from Key West, Fla. Of its 199 guestrooms, all with Atlantic Ocean views, 92 are one- to five-bedroom suites. These accommodations include a private outdoor living space and a separate living area. For guests traveling in large groups, adjoining rooms can be combined to accommodate up to 14 people.

The hotel features three food-and-beverage offerings. The Neapolitan-style Italian restaurant Il Postino will serve hand-made pizza. The Burger Palace, located adjacent to the hotel’s main pool, will offer burgers, hot dogs and fries. The Beach Bar will provide fresh seafood steps from the Atlantic Ocean.
