All of LaPlaya’s 189 rooms include: personal balconies with outdoor furniture, flat screen LCD TVs with an on-demand film service, coffee makers with coffee and tea, hair dryers, full length and make up mirrors, irons and ironing boards, safes, elegant marble baths with rain showerheads, high-speed Wi-Fi connections, complimentary bathrobes and mini-bar refrigerators.
The beds are also one of LaPlaya’s signature draws, as every room contains four-poster king-sized beds with goose-down pillows, pillow-top mattresses, and Frette linen sheets. Cribs and roll away beds are also available upon request for families vacationing with children, and each room holds a sleeper sofa alongside the main bed, meaning each room can hold up to four occupants.
Décor tends towards contemporary chic and utilizes crisp neutrals alongside nautical green hues to create color schemes that perfectly compliment the waterside views. Some rooms deliberately boast different influences, such as the old-world charm of the teak-furnished Pool View room or the eclectic organic vibe of the Beachfront One Bedroom Suite.
The room’s rate will determine what view your room has, with standard rooms offering views of bustling Vanderblit Bay in the Bay Building (Bay View) or the peaceful Gulf of Mexico (Resort View). With around 600 square feet of floor space and spacious private balconies, even the most economical rooms show off the beauty of the surrounding water.
More expensive rooms include the Pool View type, which overlook landscaping as well as the pools. They are available to be furnished with two queen beds to maximize efficiency, and also offer connecting rooms to allow large families or gatherings easy access to each other.
The Beachfront guest rooms on floors three to eight, and the Beachfront Premium guest rooms on floors nine to fifteen, also offer better views for a higher cost. Both of these room types showcase the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico and its pristine white sand beaches from its windows, but Premium guest rooms come better equipped. They boast a superior whirlpool bathtub in the en-suite bathroom, original artwork, and custom fabrics.
Some beachfront rooms occupy the bottom floor of the buildings. Known as Beach House Lanai guest rooms, the main selling point of these rooms is the extensive private terrace mere steps from the water.
Resort, Bay, Pool and Beachfront guest rooms also offer accessible versions for guests with accessibility needs. These are complete with lowered furniture, switches and support bars in the bathrooms, and the multiple lifts in every building make it easy for wheelchair users to get around.
The special suites at LaPlaya are another step up again. The Beachfront One Bedroom Suite is 850 square feet of lavish furnishings, with the décor inspired by the surrounding Florida landscapes. The special PranaSleep mattresses are designed to provide the best night’s sleep that guests have ever had after a long day of indulging in spa treatments, tanning, or golfing.
