You work hard and play hard! And it’s due time for some play.  You’re in for a beautiful treat when staying at any of our hotels and resorts right on the edge of the Atlantic, stretching from North Palm Beach all the way down to Key West. The best of all worlds – relaxation, luxury, and adventure – is what you can expect across our Opal Collection resorts along the Florida Keys. The world is your oyster, and each day can (and will!) be completely different from the next. Take a boat to sight-see underwater with some snorkeling or deep-sea fishing added in.

If You’re All Over The Alphabet…Sample Our Destinations Through the Seasons!

For those of you who selected a mixed bag of answers, here are the times of year we’d suggest visiting each of our Opal Collection destinations to make your choice a little easier.

The winter months are great for visiting any of our properties spread across the Sunshine State! Florida weather is at peak perfection during the winter months. Goodbye winter blues, hello blue skies!

Come fall, the Adirondacks are a beautiful sight to behold. The vibrant foliage and comfortable temps make for great days in the mountains or on the lake, and cozy evenings spent around the bonfire.

Our Maine destinations, whether it be our two Bar Harbor locations or at Samoset Resort, are of course spectacular in the summer, but we recommend planning a visit during the slightly quieter spring or late fall to really get the most out of your coastal Maine experience.

Don’t forget about the one-of-a-kind Winter Ice Bar Weekends at both Samoset Resort and The Sagamore Resort. Dates TBD for 2021-22!
