Southernmost Beach Resort Becomes the First Hotel in Key West to Debut Plum’s Wine on Demand Amenity

Rated by USA Today as the number one hotel in Key West, winner of Orbitz Worldwide Best in Stay Elite Award, and five-time winner of the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence, the luxury resort chose to partner with Plum to elevate the guest experience while driving F&B revenues. A big draw was Plum's sleek design and ease of use, as well as the ability to reduce operational demand and costs of minibars. F&B Managers just have to select any two standard bottles of wine and set the pricing. Plum does the rest. It pressurizes each bottle, preserving the unique flavors of each wine and serving up the perfect glass of wine at the touch of a button. It also automatically alerts staff when a guest finishes a bottle so that housekeeping can restock.

"We're proud to be the first in the Key West market to offer Plum," says Sarka Takovich, General Manager at Southernmost Beach Resort. "Plum is unique, low maintenance and modernizes the guest experience while increasing top line sales. Guests love the convenience of enjoying wine in the privacy of their rooms, 24/7, without having to wait for room service. La Mer and Dewey, our upscale properties, are the only place in Key West to offer the amenities of a full-service resort, with the seclusion and charm of an intimate bed and breakfast with your personal guest house manager, and now, wine at your fingertips. We've received great feedback from our staff and guests alike and look forward to expanding to all our properties in the near future."

Southernmost Beach Resort features upscale amenities, 3,128 square feet of meeting space, including 2,488 square feet of outdoor space, three swimming pools, private beaches with luxury cabanas, four bars, award-winning Southernmost Beach Café restaurant, a private pier in Old Town, fitness center, spa, tropical gardens, and breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean.

"We're excited to welcome Southernmost Beach Resort to our growing family of hotels and resorts," says Founder and CEO of Plum, David Koretz. "The resort offers guests the opportunity to taste paradise with all their senses, which is the perfect union for wine lovers when it comes to flavors, scents, and ocean views."

Along with the Southernmost Beach Resort, Plum has partnerships with leading independent hotels and chains, like the Four Seasons, Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, St. Regis, Ritz Carlton, Westin, Gemstone Collection and Woodside Flags.
