Opening this month in Treasure Island — a classic, Old Florida beach town – is the new, art-deco-inspired, 77 all-suites resort encompassing casual, beachfront elegance with a seamless coastal design, modern amenities and breathtaking floor-to-ceiling ocean views of the Gulf of Mexico.
“The St. Pete/Clearwater area has never been more popular and this new development on Treasure Island is another sign of that. We’re honored to have another world-class Ocean Properties hotel to market to visitors around the world, says David Downing, executive director of Visit St. Petersburg/Clearwater.”
Beckoning the best seat in the house for world-famous sunsets, the private, glass-railed balconies of the gulf front suites of Treasure Island Beach Resort overlook the pool and deck with vistas of the Gulf of Mexico. A soothing, oceanic-inspired color palette combined with clean, contemporary design adorns the one- and two-bedroom suites, which feature a spacious living room with a full sleeper sofa, armchair, and flat-screen television and a kitchenette outfitted with every convenience, including a refrigerator, stovetop, microwave, toaster, coffeemaker and table. The suite bedrooms present a flat screen television and crisp, white linens while the well-appointed bathroom includes robes and signature body lotions and soaps.
Full-scale, luxury resort amenities include personal concierge, turndown service, fitness center, beachfront pool, sundeck, outdoor dining, business center and casual event space ideal for small groups and parties.
“In addition to creating an aesthetic that is inviting and clean, while accommodating both families and couples alike, our emphasis is on an elevated guest experience at Treasure Island Beach Resort. Our goal is to have a holistic level of service that unobtrusive and simply accommodating, while the luxury space and casual surroundings speak for themselves,” says Nasser Wehbe, general manager Treasure Island Beach Resort.
The resort’s new signature restaurant is BRGR Kitchen & Bar is an ode to the classic love affair for the beach and burgers. A fun juxtaposed mix and match of retro and contemporary design spills out into a bright modern space that is casual, hip and cool while offering an inviting place to gather from early morning to late night.
Gourmet burgers, hearty salads and comforting dishes entice on the all-day dining menu of BRGR Kitchen & Bar. Custom seasoned burgers with unique toppings and condiments are sandwiched between fresh bread, sourced from a local baker and hand-cut fries. The attention and craftsmanship put on the food continues behind the bar with a well-rounded list of handcrafted cocktails, craft beer and premium wine. House-made syrups, fresh pressed juices and garden herbs aid mixologists in the creation of both modern and classic cocktails.
Treasure Island Beach Resort is located at 10800 Gulf Boulevard, within minutes of the community’s quaint beach bistros and eclectic shops. Local recreational pursuits include shelling, snorkeling, parasailing and the Treasure Island Beach Trail — a fitness and walking trail running parallel to the beach for a one-mile stretch.
Home to Florida’s first residents, Treasure Island was settled more than 10,000 years ago by Native Americans trying to escape the Ice Age that was ravaging the Northern Hemisphere. Prior to becoming a city in 1955, Treasure Island was made up of four smaller towns: Sunset Beach, Boca Ciega, Treasure Island and Sunshine Beach. Treasure Island’s wide beach and family friendly accommodations have made it a prime vacation destination for multiple generations.
Treasure Island Beach Resort is part of Ocean Properties’ OPAL collection, an exclusive ensemble of premier luxury hotels and resorts, and offers Opal Collection packages including the Opal Romance and Opal Family getaways.
