Oh, wow, you’re not looking so great.

Maybe tell your place of business that the first new hotel built in the Upper Keys in over 21 years has finally opened...

On second thought, just stick with the sick thing.

And seek immediate treatment at Playa Largo Resort & Spa, a 14-acre beachside retreat that’s beckoning you with bungalows, a ceviche bar and the requisite rum master. Yes, it’s now open in Key Largo, and yes, it looks delightful.

You’ve waited a long time for a shiny new beacon of rum-soaked leisure to grace these shores. So when you’re looking to consume the aforementioned spirit in a most languid fashion, this place will be ready for you. But there’s quite a bit more you might want to take advantage of. Like...

The bungalows.
There are 10 of them nestled into the mangroves with private back porches and upper decks. But there are also 144 rooms in the resort, if that’s your thing.

The spa and pool bar.
Paddleboard. Massage. Mojito. Repeat.

The three restaurants.
There’s a traditional steakhouse, a ceviche-and-sushi bar and a waterfront seafood joint. Take your pick.

The rum master.
They’ve got one. He’s there to guide you to the dark rum of your dreams.

Love is a battlefield.
