Resort at Longboat Key Club Review
About Resort at Longboat Key Club
Arriving at Longboat Key Club is like driving on to a small college campus, one where you're immediately welcome as part of the alumni family. That's because Longboat Key Club is not merely a resort but a thriving year-round community where fortunate members expect their fitness center to rival any urban health club in America (actually it's better when you consider all the classes being offered on the beach at the Mind & Motion Studio). Then there are the 45 holes of golf, well-manicured and free of charge to all bird life including swans, great blue herons, and those pink roseate spoonbills, and the 20 clay courts in the Tennis Gardens, home to the professional Sarasota Open each year.
Oh, there's so much more at this 410-acre property, located on a barrier island just outside of Sarasota. For starters, hit the long expanse of white sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico and the resort's kayaks, sailboats and other beach toys. The comfy chaise lounge chairs at the pool, where full waiter service is featured, are another hot spot for sun worshippers. The six restaurants scattered across the property use produce supplied by 25 local purveyors and the resort even has its own herb and vegetable garden. A short shuttle from the hotel is the marina, the largest in southwest Florida, offering fishing, sailing and boating charters.
For families, a year-round Camp Loggerhead is available for kids ages 5 to 12. The spa offers mother and daughter manicures and pedicures, and the fitness center will arrange a guided sea kayaking tour through the mangroves with a naturalist or a yoga retreat for the family on the beach.
The spacious rooms include two-bedroom suites with full kitchens so you don't have to dine out every meal. And the best part, however, is the balcony perfectly perched over the Gulf of Mexico so you can see the red orb of a sun melt into the waters nightly. That's our idea of paradise.
