The resort at Longboat Key Club near Sarasota, Florida brings in new sand, replaces all lounge chairs, adds watersports equipment, carves out play area for kids.
LONGBOAT KEY, FLA. – The Resort at Longboat Key Club is well known for its exclusive location, year-round sunshine and personalized service. Now, the resort near Sarasota, Florida debuts its expansive, newly rejuvenated white sand beach with comfortable chaise lounges, private cabanas and sheltering umbrellas.
The $1.8 million project, which involved more than 49,990 tons of pristine white sand, brings the beachfront on the south end of the island back to its former expanse, melding it into the sandbars that stretch for miles into the Gulf of Mexico. Over the course of four recent weeks, 2,250 truckloads of the finest grade sand were delivered to the barrier island, replacing sand that was lost due to natural erosion and a stormy summer.
"For our guests who return year after year, the new beach is a welcome sight, as it is now back to its former glory," said Jeff Mayers, general manager of The Resort at Longboat Key Club. "New guests will enjoy an island-style getaway like no other. We took this opportunity to replace all of the beach furniture, add some new watersports equipment and even create a special play area for young children so parents can relax and keep an eye on the little ones. New tiki huts adorn the beach, and services include cocktail and food delivery right to your cabana or lounge chairs. This is truly the beach experience our guests have come to enjoy, and we look forward to welcoming them."
In addition to enjoying the aqua blue waters and famed sunsets along the Gulf of Mexico, visitors can explore the many cultural attractions and shopping experiences in nearby Sarasota and St. Armands Circle. Conde Nast readers recently named the resort at Longboat Key Club a top 10 Florida, Gulf Coast getaway, and Tennis Resorts Online named the Tennis Gardens as one of the top 10 tennis facilities in the world in 2016.
The Florida hotel offers special rates, resort credits and discounts for golf, tennis and The Spa that will fit all travelers' budgets and fulfill their dreams to escape the winter blues.
