Kicking It In Florida: 5 Hotels For Some Quality R&R (PHOTOS)

Posted: 06/04/2012 7:00 am

We're loving this recent heat wave here at Oyster HQ, but it just makes us want to kick back and relax (preferably with a cocktail in hand).

It may be a bit ironic, but we decided to do an intensive search on the laziest spots we could find -- starting in Florida. After all, it is the Sunshine State.

From spas with plush lounge chairs to pools where you don't have to lift a finger, we found five Floridian hotels that are prime for lounging. Relax and unwind; it's time to take it easy.

Why we love it: Though many hotels in South Beach have direct beach access, the W offers an unparalleled experience on the sand. Cushy white-and-black-striped lounge chairs are spread out along the hotel's 100-yard-deep stretch of beach, which is considerably removed from the crowds in order to create a relaxing vibe. While guests bask in the sun, on-call attendants are quick to bring towels, food, beverages or even iPod shuffles.
