Business Retreat - Little Palm Island Resort
Little Palm, Lot of Dough
Million-Dollar Weekend: Little Palm Island Resort throws in daily Indonesian-inspired spa treatments and guided backcountry fishing trips, with his and her Loomis rods and Shimano reels to keep.
The resort also offers more modest packages: A thatched bungalow suite rents for $745 to $1,145 a night, depending on the season. Two larger suites, at 1,000 square feet apiece, run $1,045 to $1,545.
"I really want my guests to forget about all their worries," says the general manager, Emmanuel Gardinier. "I want them so relaxed that we have to wheel them back to the boat."
Recently named best U.S. resort by Conde Nast Traveler magazine's readers, Little Palm Island was the vacation home of President Harry S Truman and his wife, Bess. It opened as a resort in 1988 and is now part of the Noble House Hotels & Resorts chain.
