Full accommodation information

The Ritz-Carlton Sarasota is poised on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico along Florida’s Gulf Coast, fringed by swaying palm trees and a nearby private beach.

This fantastic Sarasota hotel is actually positioned to face the sunset, as it dips over the glittering sea beyond. And, to make the most of your coastal setting, guests here also have access to a dedicated beach club (courtesy of a complimentary shuttle service) offering superlative dining, a pool, beach service and games for the kids too.

The accommodation itself is sleek and polished, in line with the Ritz-Carlton’s signature style. Expect rooms starting at 40sq m here, featuring large windows, dreamy king-size beds, furnished balconies, marble bathrooms and flat-screen TVs. The higher the room category, the larger the space and more indulgent the amenities – think decadent lounge areas, freestanding tubs and for many, bay or marina views to admire at sunset. You can also choose to book a room with access to the Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge, enjoying complimentary drinks and snacks, plus a dedicated concierge service too.

In addition, the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota serves up more indulgent experiences with its range of facilities and activities. For example, there’s a delightful spa with steam room, sauna and whirlpool tub; a 24-hour fitness centre offering yoga and Pilates plus two floodlit tennis courts. For golf enthusiasts there’s a magnificent 18-hole course just a short drive away too. If you’re travelling with little ones, they can be whisked off to enjoy activities courtesy of the Ritz Kids program while you relish some alone time on the (private) beach, or by the pool. To top it all, the Ritz-Carlton Sarasota not only boasts four restaurants and bars, but also easy access to the dining and entertainment scene of Sarasota itself, so you’ll be left wanting for nothing here.

Marvellously light-filled thanks to large, floor-to-ceiling windows, the rooms and suites at Ritz-Carlton Sarasota are tranquil havens indeed, starting at a spacious 40sq m. All accommodation comes with Asprey toiletries, bathrobes, a 55-inch TV with streaming apps, tea and coffee making facilities, comfy king or twin beds, marble en suites and complimentary bottled water.
