Imagine this: you wake up, have your morning coffee and a quick bite to eat, maybe catch up on some emails or the news, pick out your outfit for the day, and which new BMW you’ll be taking for your spin around Miami. Not too shabby, right? Well, the opulent Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne – Miami’s only AAA Five Diamond resort – and BMW are making this a reality by offering Ritz guests complimentary access to one of eight pristine new BMW models for their personal daytime and evening use from May 1 through June 4 through the Ritz-Carlton BMW Driving Tour. Key Biscayne is the first stop on the 2011 tour, which will travel to other Ritz-Carlton locations in Amelia Island, Reynolds Plantation, Charlotte, and Naples through December.

Guests at the lavish resort will have the Z4 sDrive35i, 335i Convertible, 535i Sedan, 550i Gran Turismo, 750Li Sedan, X5 Diesel, X6 Sports Activity Coupe, and the MINI Cooper S Countryman at their disposal daily from 9 am to 5 pm for up to three hours – plenty of time to check out that new restaurant opening up or just cruise around and take in Miami’s gorgeous scenery.

For evenings, the tour offers Drive & Dinner reservations, available from 5:30 to 10 p.m., which will be personally taken care of for you by the resort’s expert concierge, including recommendations on spots for your night out and maps – they’ll even enter your destinations into your choice of car’s GPS system prior to your drive. If that’s not sure to impress your date, we’re not sure what will.

General Manager Derek Flint breaks down the golden opportunity: “Guests can make advance reservations and check out the latest luxury BMWs like they would a library book, then simply turn the car back in. It’s an amazing opportunity to discover the area and test out the next generation of luxury cars before anyone else.”
