Slow things down with a laidback, secluded escape to the ever-sunny Florida Keys at Hawks Cay Resort, where guests are invited to kick back and relax on the private island of Duck Key. Comfortable rooms and self-contained villas create a home-away-from-home experience, but with the number of activities available, you'll be raring to stay outside all day. Spend your time hopping between the five pools and lagoons, snorkelling in turquoise waters, spotting dolphins or paddling to neighbouring islands. Kids are spoilt for choice with specialised activities: there's a pirate ship pool with a water slide, basketball court, putt-putt golf course, resident mermaid and much more. When hunger strikes, there are six onsite dining venues to choose from, including a poolside tiki grill bar for colourful cocktails and fresh salads.
