Imagine waking up to the sounds of wild parrots, walking outside your private patio and sitting in your Turtle Beach robe with a cup of coffee from your resort kitchen to watch the sunrise on the bay. Listen and you will hear manatees shuffling by or the splash of a dolphin from your deck. The natural setting of Turtle Beach Resort on Siesta Key is unparalleled. Many have tried but none have imitated our spectacular waterfront location.
We have been selected by many publications as one of Florida’s best romantic escapes. Frommer’s Florida Book named Turtle Beach Resort as one of the top ten romantic resorts and has given us their highest rating in the Sarasota area! Our many awards also include the 5 Hearts award in the “Best Romantic Escapes in Florida Book”
Our Inn sits on the lagoon that overlooks Turtle Beach and that property is for adults only. You can sit in the tiki hut and watch the sun set into the horizon of the Gulf of Mexico. Listen and you can hear the waves of the ocean crash upon the beach. Pelicans and seabirds will entertain you while you sip an afternoon drink from your blender or relax in the hammocks by the boat docks. If this isn’t paradise, what is?
Honeymooners love the relaxing quiet. Couples celebrating anniversaries or birthdays or just looking to renew their relationship have visited us by the thousands. With only ten cottages and ten suites we remain a retreat away from the stress of life and work. Our professional massage therapists can do couple massages or singles to knead your tired muscles. Slip into our famous private large hot tubs on your fenced patio to totally unwind. With the whirlpool jets and the tropical setting, your cares will melt away.
Our honeymooners and guests love to use our complimentary kayaks and canoes to glide over to the “secret” beach at the end of the island for complete solitude. You will paddle near dolphins, manatees and jumping fish. We are an eco-friendly area so just enjoy the views and the Gulf of Mexico beaches. Bicycles, fishing and beach gear are all available complimentary to our guests as well.
There is no place on the island where you can lie in bed, look out from the one way glass and watch the sunrise on the bay, or the sunset of the Gulf of Mexico from your balcony hot tub spa! Relax in the hammocks under the palm trees on the lagoon or be the lucky few that can say they are now “sitting on the dock on the bay”! Turtle Beach Resort is the ultimate romantic getaway!
