If you’re looking to get away for a wondrous and luxurious, adult-friendly Spring Break vacation on a beachfront paradise without all of the noise, the craziness, and the shoulder-to-shoulder crowds that are so typical of the Spring break period, The Resort at Longboat Key Club situated in Longboat Key, Florida on a secluded barrier island, is perfect.
Off the beaten path, Longboat Key, a prime vacation region known for its beauty and the adjacent Sarasota Bay area offer outstanding sightseeing and recreational opportunities including jungle gardens, an aquarium, a classic car museum, opera, theaters, fishing, fantastic dining, and great shopping.
However, when you factor in the exceptional experiences offered by The Resort at Longboat Key Club without even having to leave the scenic vistas of the resort grounds, there’s a magical tour de force of adventure, relaxation, and luxury waiting for you on an island paradise right within the United States.
At The Resort at Longboat Key Club, you can stay in elegant suites, with breathtaking beach, lagoon, or golf course views. Just look at the gorgeous room below! The accommodations (with complimentary high-speed internet access and concierge services) are more akin to condos than standard hotel rooms (as they are large and many have full kitchens as well as a washer and dryer). And the best part is that you are literally 1-2 minutes from stepping onto the beach!
Pristine White Sand Beach
The long, white-sand beach extending from the resort stretches for miles and miles of picturesque shore with brilliant turquoise water, perfect for swimming, boating, walking, or day-dreaming. This stretch of paradise is incredibly serene with gentle breezes and astonishing vistas that are even more enjoyable with a tropical drink from the bar. The resort staff is very attentive, and you can enjoy the beach from a lounge chair and umbrella or book a private beach cabana with personalized beach service. Either way, sit back, relax, and gaze at the beauty that surrounds you. You’ll have the perfect suntan in no time.
Other than taking in the paradisal scenery with drink in hand on the beach, the resort offers sailing and boating charters, watersports, paddleboards and kayak rentals (along with a 291-slip, deep water marina with access to Sarasota Bay and the intracoastal waterway). A state of the art fitness center (with personal trainers available), complimented by Mind and Motion Studio with exercise, yoga, and meditation classes, offers further fitness and recreation opportunities. On an additional note, definitely don’t miss out on the chance to see the island by bike (bicycles and helmets are complimentary), jogging, or walking- a must see!
While at the resort, you’ll have access to award-winning, championship golf courses (and optional instruction by PGA-certified professionals, like champion and Director of Golf, Terry O’Hara). The golf staff are very friendly, courteous, and helpful. With a total of 45 exceptionally-maintained holes (including the Harbourside Golf Course that runs along Sarasota Bay, where vistas of palm trees and ocean will welcome you with a gentle gulf-breeze as you play), these courses are amazing.
The resort’s 20-court Tennis Gardens has won multiple awards and in 2017, The Resort at Longboat Key Club was ranked #6 tennis resort worldwide.
