The Resort at Longboat Key Club Debuts $1.8 Million in Renovations

The Resort at Longboat Key Club

Florida’s beautiful beachfront property, Resort at Longboat Key Club, recently underwent expansive renovations. Guests can now enjoy the perpetual sunshine and customizable service with chaise lounges, private cabanas, and sheltering umbrellas atop pristine white sand.

The $1.8 million dollar renovation project moved 49,990 tons of sand to the beachfront, expanding the end of the island back to its original expanse. The sand will bridge the gap to the sandbars to provide miles of habitable beach that stretches out into the Gulf of Mexico. 2,250 truckloads of fine grade sand were delivered to the barrier island over the course of four weeks. The sand replaces all that was lost due to natural erosion and the summer storms in Florida.

“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.”

The Resort at Longboat Key Club was just recently named a top 10 Gulf Coast getaway by the readers of Condé Nast. Tennis Resorts Online also named the Tennis Gardens, the resort’s tennis center featuring 20 playable courts, as one of the top 10 tennis facilities in the world in 2016. With the expansion of the beach to create more space for guests to enjoy the shimmering blue waters and gorgeous white sand, the Resort at Longboat Key Club will continue to be one of the greatest resorts under the Florida sun.
