Words cannot do justice to this hidden paradise, which my husband and I recently had a chance to visit. From the unparalleled view across the infinity pool to the sea, to the elegant statuary that lines the shaded paths, to the 5-star décor and spa amenities in the private “bungalows”, (can you call them that when they sleep two couples comfortably and privately?) to the luxurious bed I wanted to take home with me, I just loved this place.

It had just weathered Hurricane Maria and I’m told a third of the gardens were decimated…but I couldn’t tell! It was lush and green. It’s set back from a gated entry along an orchid-lined drive. There’s a private dock perfect for cocktail hour (here’s a photo of our friends on the dock as the sun set). And as we sat there, a manatee literally swam by us, a few feet away. The place is simply magical and I can’t wait to go back!

Largo Resort is by far the most amazing and unique wedding or vacation venue you could ask for! After Irma caused our previous venue to close, we were in a panic to find something that would be as nice. We can confidently say that our wedding at Largo Resort ended up even better than it would have at our previous place. Saida was incredibly helpful in facilitating everything and was available via email or text for every little question we had.

Overall, the location is just beautiful beyond words. The pictures don’t do it justice. Infinity edge pool overlooking the water? Amazing. Intricate driftwood arch on the sunset pier? Incredible. Dinner and dancing under the palm trees and hand carved tiki hut? We just can’t convey enough how perfect this all was. The main lodge is a mix of clean and modern with eccentric Bali inspired décor. The bungalows were as equally perfect and allowed us to have about half our guests stay on-site for what ended up as a private vacation venue for a weekend with family and friends. If you’re looking for an intimate venue that can turn your wedding into something your guests will remember, (turned into a beach party for us!) you need to choose Largo Resort! We did not in our wildest dreams imagine our wedding to be as amazing as it was here!

In short, stop looking for your venue and chose Largo Resort! There is truly nothing comparable out there.

The review title is fitting in that I literally referenced this exact quote as part of my wedding vows on the pier of this venue. This sprawling property whisks you away to what felt like a beach on the Havana Shore meeting Frank Sinatra’s vacation home in Acapulco. The combination of lush landscaping, modern architectural luxury, exquisite taste in style, the most comfortable beds, and perfect views of the sun setting made this a dream venue for my family to enjoy what felt like a fairy-tale.

However, that description doesn’t do justice to ‘feeling’ you get when you’re there. The stillness of this place grabs you and keeps you dialed into every unique moment. That’s part of the magic we experienced that might sound cliche but I guess it’s one of those “you just have to be there to get it” moments. Everywhere you turn there’s harmony of nature and design; the cute tree swing, brilliant orchids, rustic furniture, trees that breached the ceiling, and that iconic sunset. We even bounced on their trampoline right after we got married!

Right down to the soap, yes soap, they nailed it. When I say they; I’m referencing Kathryn who worked with us for months leading up to the weekend. She was the definition of detailed oriented and catered to whatever need we could think of. Our guests were pampered and happy. In addition to making sure our stay was top notch, she supplied the best referrals to restaurants, bars, boats, beaches, and many other unique insights. Kathryn is the genuine article and felt like an old friend I’d known for years.

Whether you’re having a wedding, reunion, party, or just wanting to escape the concrete jungle…I recommend this venue with gusto. The owner is also a class act which is reflected in the spirit of this gem. We hope to be back soon to get another taste of heaven…

Largo is an amazing place! I’ve traveled all over the world and to have this sanctuary in our own backyards of Florida is spectacular ! I vacationed there with my family. We have two teenagers that had a wonderful time !From the moment you enter the gates , you feel as if you just wandered onto an island in another country . The bungalows were beautiful and the lodge, with its native trees actually growing throughout the structure felt as if you were in an island paradise thousands of miles away ! Truly a unique and wonderful experience so close to home!

Heaven on Earth. Peaceful, beautiful, orchids in many trees, airy bright cabin and the charming host is as amazing as the location and décor. I hope to return someday.

My wife and I stayed here for our 35th anniversary. I don’t think we could have found a better place to stay. The staff were great and we were surprised with a bottle of champagne. The rooms were perfectly appointed and the grounds were a private zen garden. We travel extensively and by far this was the best place we have found in the US. It truly is a tropical sanctuary. We are planning to go back and have recommended Largo Resort to others.

What is the best review anyone can forward???? “Can’t wait to go back again!!!” It was the best weekend ever with family and friends celebrating the Wedding of V & T… Upon entering the impressive raised wood doors, thru the tree lined path to the Pool, the Bay, the tiny bell hanging from a low branch, the aesthetic elegant rustic interior, the staff is friendly and attentive. We had the best weekend ever… and did I mention the showers… See to believe!!! It was a Magical experience.

The moment the gates open, every one of your senses are captivated by the sights and sounds of this tropical oasis. It’s amazing this private Sanctuary exists only an hour from Miami, and upon leaving this Resort, there is a feeling of having left the country, and truly energized your soul. The calming privacy of this property is ideal for friends and family to escape for a weekend for special occasions, and enjoy kayaking, paddle boarding, sailing and the gorgeous views of the sunsets. This is an exceptional property that should be experienced.

Beautiful!!! Best family vacation. Incredible week with everything that we needed. And the beds were amazing – an added bonus. Our family rented the main house and then 4/6 of the bungalows. We had 22 total people including 11 kids ages 2yo – 18yo. Perfect location, amenities & private. Kids could run around safely. It was like our own private compound and it’s perfect for events such as weddings and big parties. We can’t wait to go back.

My husband and I recently stayed at Largo Resort. It’s tucked away with only the beautiful white Buddha Marble heads on each side of the dark wood electric entrance divulging where it is. Upon driving through the doors we were surrounded in what seemed like a rain forest. It felt like we were instantly thousands of miles away. Our bungalow was perfect. Beautifully appointed with a master bedroom and living area that had a Murphy bed if your party is larger. It’s very clean and very upscale. The bed was very comfortable and the linens exquisite. 2 beautiful bathrooms and a small fridge was a plus for me. These bungalows have lots of beautiful impact windows with views of all the nature around us. The owners are graciously hospitable. They aim to please. As I walked to the pool on the bay I was pleasantly greeted with soft Zen like music piped in through the trees. The pool is large with many ledges to sit on. We sipped our cocktails and watched the sunset. The water in the pool is fresh and is of a drinking water quality. Very easy on the skin! Throughout the resort are a number of beautiful Oak trees. The owner carefully built many rooms and walkways around the trees. It’s amazing to see them in the various rooms. Ed and Jun gave us the best recommendations for nearby restaurants, which did not disappoint! I’m a detail person so nothing was lost on me. The artwork throughout the resort are a result of the owners globe trotting travels. They brought in amazing furniture, tiki huts and artwork from their recent trip to Bali. This place is perfect for an intimate get away, or for larger events such as weddings and family events. You’re close to everything. I will be back. I’m very lucky it’s a 90 minute drive from where I live in Boca. Don’t forget to ask Edward to arrange a sailboat ride on their beautiful 40 ft. sailboat that you’ll see out on the water. This is a very private place. You can only have a beautiful experience here.
