With the holidays behind us and summer down the road, it’s never too early to start planning for spring break. However, if you’d like to avoid the rowdy crowds at traditional Spring Break destinations, then The Resort at Longboat Key Club on the Gulf Coast of Florida may be more your speed. With relaxing spa days, championship golf courses and award-winning tennis courts, Longboat Key Club redefines the adult spring break getaway.
The Resort at Longboat Key Club
Endless Summers For Spring Break
Hugging the shores of the Gulf of Mexico on the west and Sarasota Bay on the east, The Resort at Longboat Key Club sits on 410 acres of lush greenery. The luxurious yet laid-back resort has 223 spacious condominium suites. All accommodations have balconies with unforgettable views of the gulf and full kitchens with washer/dryer access.
Year-round, enjoy the heated pools (handicap accessible) and full-service luxury spa which pampers guests with massages, facials, and aromatherapy treatments. At the resort, you can also enjoy complimentary beach volleyball and bike rentals, or hop on a complimentary shuttle bus and visit nearby attractions like the Mote Marine Aquarium and St. Armands Circle.
Since Longboat Key is located on a secluded barrier island, the resort is close enough where you can go into town but remote enough where you’ll feel like you’re on a faraway island.
If you’re more daring, go out on a fishing excursion in Sarasota Bay or rent a kayak (single or double). Don’t miss out on other water sports like paddle boarding, snorkeling, and surfing.
Looking for a good book to read while laying out on a lounge chair or private luxury cabana?
Head to The Library at the lobby of The Resort at Longboat Key Club. The Library showcases suspense, mystery and thriller novels from 13 local authors.
There are eight on-site Sarasota restaurants and lounges, offering casual to upscale fine dining. Feast on fresh fruit, healthy salads, grilled sandwiches, tropical cocktails, hearty Italian dishes and of course, fresh Florida seafood.
Golf & Tennis
Lastly, although many resorts lack the equipment for guests to keep up with their exercise routines, at The Resort at Longboat Key Club, break a sweat at a beach boot camp, Pilates class or meditate during yoga. Work out at the fully-equipped fitness center or grab a racquet and get one-on-one tennis lessons. Semi-private and private golf lessons are also available daily.
Although The Resort at Longboat Key Club isn’t an all-inclusive resort, it offers inclusive amenities where everything you need for a short weekend getaway or an extended stay is within reach. And despite the pristine emerald coastlines, there is so much to experience at the resort. It’s no wonder why many people come back to Longboat Key time and time again.
