Zota Beach Resort

 

In looking at the Zota Beach Resort I am impressed with how perfectly this modernist compound compliments the natural landscape of Longboat Key. From the Atlantic shore line, passed the wide, white, sand beach punctuated with natural dunes, two gleaming contemporary structures of the Zota Beach Resort rise just slightly above the two rows of palm trees that surround the resort’s centerpiece pool. The barrier island of Longboat Key, located on Florida’s west coast in Sarasota and Manatee countries, is an enclave of refrain in over development and purposeful preservation of the natural shore and landscape. Celebrating it one-year anniversary on Longboat Key the Zota Beach Resort is the area’s hippest hangout. Ocean Properties Resorts and Hotels, a leader in the hotel and hospitality industry, recognized the need for a sophisticated, high style luxury resort on Longboat Key. The resort is the perfect spot for active sport visitors who enjoy the islands many golf courses and water activities. For special occasion visitors the resort’s accommodations are expansive while being personalized and warm. The high style and laid-back luxury at Zota Beach Resort is ultimately for those that covet endless views and the spacious peaceful beaches that make Longboat Key so special.

 

 
 

 

Contemporary Design On Longboat Key, Florida.

The internationally recognized award-wining architecture and interior design firm Leo A. Daly was tasked with bringing a world-class resort to a property that encompasses the former Longboat Key Hilton. Their design teams created a luxury landscape with a relaxed atmosphere complete with architectural details that frame and exclaim modernism. The187 guest rooms in the resort’s two buildings, connected by a graphic reflective pond and breezeway, are decorated with inspiration from the islands natural tones and textures. The alluring azure blues and deep-sea tones in the lobby are also found in the guest rooms and suites. Beautiful coral limestone covers the walls in the lobby and in Viento Kitchen and Bar outdoor terrace on the second floor.

 

 
 

 

Zota Style

High design meets ocean casual

Aside from the guest rooms the most captivating views at Zota Beach Resort is from Viento Kitchen and Bar that overlooks the large pool and the Atlantic Ocean. With Florida fresh cuisine influenced by the flavor of the Caribbean, and some St. Barth’s flair added, Viento Kitchen menus are as enticing as its terraced sunset views. Weather you choose to dine in the handsomely intimate dining room or al fresco be sure to catch the sunset with a cocktail. The attentive and creative bartenders are charmingly entertaining and, needless to say, they shake, stir and pour with style.

Engaging concierge Dan Kelsey is essential to your visit. His vast knowledge of the islands recreational and dining diversions is sure to impress. From kayaking, golfing, fishing charters and other recreational activities to making reservations at the widely popular Sandbar Restaurant on the north end of Anna Maria Island Dan can facilitate. Guest also enjoy Sarasota’s quaint and lively St. Armands Circle, a short ride from Zota, for its upscale shopping, entertainment and restaurants. Dan can also set up your personalized beach escape or make all the arrangements for your every comfort in a private cabana. At Zota Beach Resort General Manager Roy Padgett, a beloved and familiar face on Longboat Key, is ever watchful to ensure the finest experience for new and returning guest and this modernist and intimate jewel on the beach.
