Tranquil Beach Meets Modern Oasis at South Florida’s Newest Resort
Now open – 200 Rooms
The 200-room resort spans 14 acres of lush tropical groves with towering ficus trees and provides exclusive access to one of the most secluded beaches in the area. Situated on a former pineapple plantation owned by the hotel’s namesake, Captain Ben Baker, the resort pays homage to the pineapple symbol of hospitality.
The exclusive beachfront resort exudes marine inspiration from the Florida Keys. Designed by Dayna Lee and Ted Berner of Powerstrip Studios, Baker’s Cay Resort boasts compelling integrations of bold modern teak furnishings, flirty patterns woven through textile and custom designed lighting.
Guests can rejuvenate at the resort’s Green House, an Aveda exclusive salon at Baker’s Cay, or relish in an extensive list of amenities, inclusive of two swimming pools enhanced by a waterfall grotto, a library with reading nooks and a hammock-lined path.
Outdoorsy travelers will enjoy programs that span across wellness, sustainability, informational workshops, watersports and more. Activities include a children’s eco-educational camp, seaplane rides, beach golf with bio-degradable golf balls, fishing charters, parasailing, diving and more.
Elevating each guest’s experience, Baker’s Cay Resort launched inclusive programs designed to involve family members and pets during their stay, including:
- Cay-1: Designated experts curate site-specific guest activities like a sea plane ride to Key West for the day or helping restore the only live coral reef in the United States.

Under the leadership of Executive Chef Andy Papson, who brings a dash of New Orleans soul to the eateries, the Baker’s Cay Resort culinary team leverages the abundance of local ingredients and its rooftop garden to create dining and craft cocktail experiences with fresh, flavorful menus.
Calusa, an indoor/outdoor Caribbean-Creole restaurant, boasts panoramic views of the bay, turquoise tinged décor and approachable yet intricate dishes.
