The Hilton Key Largo started out as a typical renovation and swelled into a complete reconstruction emerging as the new Curio Baker’s Cay Resort.
This beachfront resort is located on the Gulf side of the Overseas Highway, on 13 acres of tropical groves and provides exclusive access to one of the most secluded white-sand beaches in the area. Situated on a former pineapple plantation previously owned by the hotel’s namesake Captain Ben Baker, Baker’s Cay Resort pays homage to the historical notion that pineapples serve as a symbol of hospitality and elegance.
Digney York started the renovation of this 200-room resort and was 75% complete when Hurricane Irma devastated the property. Starting over from bare studs DYA rebuilt the property with new drywall partitions, HVAC, electrical, and life safety. Throughout the extended schedule we worked closely with ownership and the insurance company to minimize the time the property was out of operation. Today the resort showcases fresh new modern guestrooms and suites with hand carved furnishings and custom tiled bathrooms with new walk-in showers.
