Why fly all the way to an airport when you can just get dropped off in your hotel’s backyard?

Luxury travelers looking to stay at Key West’s Casa Marina resort now have that option. The hotel is the first in Key West to offer the exclusive experience, which includes airfare for two guests on a seaplane from most Florida airports directly to the Waldorf Astoria resort’s pier.

The $6,250 summer package also includes a two-night stay at the 311-room historic property, a beach butler, personalized landing photo and two pairs of Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses — what else? — waiting for guests in their rooms.

Travelers coming in on one of Key West Seaplanes’ colorful planes will bypass pesky check-in lines and be escorted directly to their lanai room or oceanfront suite.

Still, the offer pales in comparison to Casa Marina’s previous luxury offerings.

Last year, the property touted an opulent three-night, $25,000 air, land and water trifecta. That offer included a seaplane trip to Dry Tortugas National Park, the first-ever private dinner at the Ernest Hemingway Home and a trip on a chartered boat to a private island for dinner.
