Sarasota is an incredibly romantic destination. From its award-winning sun swept shores to the lively calendar of performing arts, there are many ways to celebrate your special occasion.

What Are The Best Ways To Enjoy Nature While Staying At A Sarasota Hotel?

Tropical Paradise abounds on Siesta Key and there are so many incredible ways to experience it while staying at our Siesta Key, Sarasota hotel

Tropical Paradise abounds on Siesta Key and there are so many incredible ways to experience it while staying at our Siesta Key, Sarasota hotel

What Are The Best Ways To Enjoy Nature While Staying At A Sarasota Hotel?

Sarasota is not only Florida’s cultural capital, but a tropical, nature wonderland as well. There are so many ways to explore the abounding beauty.  Here are a few of our favorites.

Spend time on our world-famous beaches, renowned for their cool, powder white sands. If you’re lucky enough to be staying at a Sarasota hotel near the beach, you can spend your mornings strolling along the water’s edge with coffee in hand. You’ll find horse conch, lightning whelks, pink shrimp and seahorses in knee-deep water. Your companions will likely be gulls overhead, dolphins frolicking in the waters and sandpipers, oyster catchers and roseate spoonbills. Grab a fresh cup of coffee from the office or make some from the in-room coffee service and take a morning stroll. Enjoy the sunshine with your loved one and greet the day on Crescent Beach’s stellar sand.  Walking hand in hand on World Famous Crescent Beach is the perfect way to start the day!

Go paddle boarding, a peaceful way to commune with our marvelous finned and feathered friends. It provides opportunities for discovering oyster beds, fish breeding areas and unspoiled, hidden pockets teeming with marine life. Dolphins are plentiful here; there’s a good chance you’ll see some playfully leaping nearby. You might even see the moon face of a manatee staring up at you in wonder. Paddle boarding with friends or family is such an incredible experience. You’ll feel a singular sense of inner peace and beauty. The power of the water and the force of the board through the surf is so magical. Seeing all the beautiful water and its surroundings will complete the aquatic adventure making memories that will last forever.  For private lessons or Pilates Paddle board contact Studio RubyLakes.

Kayak the mangroves. Nothing can bring you closer to nature than kayaking our mysterious mangroves. A kayaking excursion can put you face to face with egrets, turns, wood storks, pelicans, dolphins, manatee and other wildlife. What you see you will treasure with your heart. Rentals are available for ocean kayaking as well from the hotel’s beach service on the beach access.  http://youtu.be/y4w__Ua139E

Rent a bicycle. Siesta Key’s bike path starts at the south end on Midnight Pass Road and goes up to the North Bridge. It’s a very safe, refreshing and enjoyable way to see the area. The much heralded Legacy Trail stretches from Sarasota County and into neighboring Charlotte County. In addition to bicyclers, you’ll see people walking, some with their dogs, joggers and rollerblading. The Legacy Trail offers several areas to stop, rest, learn about its history or just enjoy the natural beauty surrounding the trail. For bike rentals contact: Siesta Sport Rentals

Join in the Drum Circle at sundown on  Sundays at Siesta Beach. You’ll meet a colorful cast of characters who passionately serenade our legendary sunsets, drummers, dancers, maybe a singer or two along with a host of onlookers. Celebrate with us as we express our appreciation and say thank you and farewell to another wonderful day in paradise.  Just a 1.5 mile distance from the Tropical Beach Resorts, you’ll experience incredible music, fun dancing and a rhythmic force that just makes you want to be a part of it.  For more information: Visit Sarasota

There is quite possibly no better place this time of year to go out and get some sunshine… Than on beautiful Siesta Key. Let our friendly, helpful, local staff assist you in planning your island excursions. These are just the tip of the options available for the utmost in Siesta Key and Sarasota experiences. Nature is plentiful and we can help you make the most of your time here with us.

Tropical Beach Resorts is Giving Thanks This 2013 Holiday Season

Thanksgiving 2013

Thanksgiving definition

The 2013 Holiday Season is truly upon us. With Thanksgiving a bit later in the calendar year, the crunch time between now and Christmas is shorter than ever, putting that much more pressure on for holiday shopping and preparation overall. How can we squeeze so much into such a short time? Retailers are scrambling as well as family members to get all the necessary shopping and decorating done.  But let’s not forget the true meaning of the holiday season, recognizing the family togetherness and religious aspects that are truly what the season is all about.

Maybe it’s time to make new traditions, different activities and meanings to the holiday season. Ones that do not have to do with ‘Black Friday’ or ‘Cyber Monday.’ Those sure sound scary and not fun to me! Take a moment to sit back and really reflect on what the true reason for the season is! To give thanks for all the blessings that we have, to be with friends and family, and to cherish these special times making memories that will last for years to come.

Here at Tropical Beach Resorts, we are a local family-owned establishment. With deep roots in the community and our churches, we take great pride in what we stand for as a business.  Our commitments to the church, our families and our businesses are all that we have to reflect upon to see how we have effected those around us. We strive to be the best and friendliest hotel on Siesta Key, with emphasis on kindness, understanding and respect for all.  We truly care for all of our guests and wish that all experiences here at Tropical Beach Resorts are the best that they can be and that we offered the finest product around.  With that said, we are truly thankful for the opportunities that we have had and hope to continue with a successful, growing small business that leaves a significant mark on the community and other people’s lives.

In closing, we are thankful for all our guests, our families, and for God being our guidance through all. Take a deep breath of that beautiful salty, Siesta Key air and talk about what you are thankful for. Wishing all of you and yours an amazing holiday season.

Siesta Key hotel, Tropical Beach Resorts is doing its part to help!

Clean the World

Tropical Beach Resorts partnered with Clean the World back in October 2012. Clean the world is a non-profit organization that collects used bars of soap, shampoo, conditioner and other amenities from hotels. They then sanitize and redistribute throughout the world and even in our own communities. Since then we have collectively produced 2,059 recycled bars of life saving soap and stopped 956 pounds of waste from lying in our local landfill just from our resort alone! They currently have sent over 8,500 hygiene packs to the Oklahoma tornado victims and over 19,000 packs to those affected by hurricane Sandy.

Here is the process…. they collect all of the bar soap into n a vat which is then sanitized and melted together to be formed into a new bar of soap. The plastic bottles containing shampoo, conditioner and body wash are sorted. Those containing 25 percent or more are sanitized and redistributed locally to homeless and abuse shelters. The bottles containing less than 25 percent of liquid are squeezed and the liquid is used in the facility while the bottle is recycled. The plastic bottles are not sent over to countries of need of soap since there are no ways of recycling them over there. The distribution of soap is earth friendly and uses as less waste as possible.

3.5 Million children under the years of 5 die each year due to hygiene related illnesses.  Just the simple act of washing their hands could prevent many deaths. We at Tropical Beach Resorts are proud to aid in helping this cause. Each staff member does their part in maintaining the procedure of collecting the in-room amentities to the Clean the World center. We urge other hotels to do the same. There are ways even a single individual could help with the project too!  Find the many different ways you and your community can make a difference at www.CleantheWorld.org.

Here are Tropical Beach Resorts on Siesta Key, we are committed to being a green, environmental friendly hotel. If you have other ideas on how we can improve and make a difference, please let us know!
