Throughout its transformation from a shrimper’s haven to a modern travel destination, the area has become a hub for Key West’s creative community. We have exciting plans to introduce amenities and implement on-property programming that showcases authentic aspects of the local Key West culture and the artisanal heartbeat of this historic location.”

Uniquely situated between the mangroves lining Shrimp Road and the new state-of-the-art 220-slip Stock Island Marina, The Perry Hotel Key West will open in March 2017 featuring architecture and design styles that pay homage to the industrial history of the first of Key West’s seven islands and its long tradition of working boatyards, fishing fleets and marinas. In addition to private terraces with water views from every guest room, the property will feature a lush outdoor pool area with private cabanas that overlooks the working waterfront, two “boat to table” seafood-driven restaurants and a variety of outdoor excursion options that range from paddle boarding, kayaking and boating to diving, snorkeling and fishing.

ABOUT THE PERRY HOTEL KEY WEST AT STOCK ISLAND MARINA

Inspired by the industrial nature from which Stock Island has developed, The Perry Hotel Key West at Stock Island Marina Village blends smooth wood finishes with rustic metal details, paying homage to the area's iconic maritime heritage. Steeped in Key West’s roots and the tradition of working boatyards, fishing fleets and marinas, the property’s interior design blends sharp, rugged elements with warm, ocean-inspired touches, evoking the history of weathered fisherman who sought refuge in Stock Island’s Safe Harbor.

Hotel Spa: Measuring the Results
As the Hotel Spa and Wellness Movement continues to flourish, spa operations are seeking new and innovative ways to expand their menu of services to attract even more people to their facilities, and to and measure the results of spa treatments. Whether it’s spa, fitness, wellness meet guest expectations. Among new developments, there seems to be a growing emphasis on science to define or beauty services, guests are becoming increasingly careful about what they ingest, inhale or put on their skin, and they are requesting scientific data on the treatments they receive. They are open to exploring the benefits of alternative therapies – like brain fitness exercises, electro-magnetic treatments, and chromotherapy – but only if they have been validated scientifically. Similarly, some spas are integrating select medical services and procedures into their operations, continuing the convergence of hotel spas with the medical world. Parents are also increasingly concerned about the health and well-being of their children and are willing to devote time and money to overcome their poor diets, constant stress, and hours spent hunched over computer, tablet and smartphone screens. Parents are investing in wellness-centric family vacations; yoga and massage for kids; mindfulness and meditation classes; and healthy, locally sourced, organic food. For hotel spas, this trend represents a significant area for future growth. Other trends include the proliferation of Wellness Festivals which celebrate health and well-being, and position hotel spas front and center. The July issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these trends and developments and examine how hotel spas are integrating them into their operations.
