After a 6-hour drive from St. Pete to the Keys, Ryan and I arrived at Little Palm Island late yesterday afternoon.
Little Palm Island is a secluded tropical getaway, accessible only for those staying in one of the resort’s 30 bungalows. Ryan and I were fortunate enough to be able to stay at this amazing resort for two days at a discounted rate after I reached out to them in a frantic state last week. (Our previous honeymoon plans were completely derailed thanks to Hurricane Tomas.) Now, I sit here, blogging from an isolated dock, watching the sunset.
When we arrived at the welcome hut yesterday, we were greeted with island drinks before boarding a little boat and heading out to Little Palm Island.
A wonderful guide led us to our bungalow that was labeled with our name! As if we weren’t already beyond impressed, when we opened up the doors to our bungalow I think Ryan and I both almost passed out!
Check out our digs! The bed in our room may be the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in. The mattress on the bed is a Tempurpedic mattress that feels like heaven. I slept like a rock last night!
Before arriving at Little Palm Island, I did a lot of research and read many reviews, so Ryan and I knew we wanted to stay on the island for dinner at The Dining Room.
We heard amazing things about the atmosphere and quality of food at The Dining Room so we were beyond excited to eat some yummy food and kick off our honeymoon with a romantic meal.
When we took our seats, we were greeted with menus that said “Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Fagan” which took us by surprise and made us feel so special.
It took us a while to decide what to order and eventually Ryan decided on the tuna and, after a strong urging from Ryan who said “We’re on our honeymoon! Go big!” I opted for the lobster.
We first polished off all of the bread from our bread basket that included an assortment of rolls, most notably cheese biscuits.
As if we weren’t full enough already, we were presented with a dessert menu.
Ryan and I enjoyed our meat at The Dining Room so much that we have plans to return this evening.
I’ll try to post a recap of today’s full day of activities sometime soon, but naturally my number one priority is spending time with my new husband who just happened to finish the magazine he was reading.
Off to continue honeymooning! 😀
