If you've ever visited Florida in the winter, then you know that time between October and March is what Floridians live for. The cool breezes, the warm sun, and of course resort style patios are in full swing.
Whether pool side, bar side, or in some cases rooftop patios, here is a round up of our favorite resort patios that we've had the pleasure of helping to add some kind of comfort or shade element. From Sunbrella cushions, curtains, or even pergolas, these Tampa Bay hotels hit the mark with outdoor spaces for residents and visitors alike.
1. The Epicurean Resort Hotel
The Epicurean Hotel is located in Tampa Bay’s vibrant Soho District. This area offers endless options of restaurants, boutiques, and bars all in close proximity. Visit historic Hyde Park for an elevated shopping and dining experience. Speaking of elevated dining experience, do not miss a meal at the local legend, Bern’s Steakhouse. Patio Lane assisted in curating their luxurious outdoor patios with our addition of umbrellas and stylized custom commercial cushions in Sunbrella fabric; Astoria Sunset. The Epicurean exudes a sleek modern aesthetic, decorated with elements of culinary heritage. Enjoy nights out on the town or lounging by the pool.
2. Hotel Zamora on St. Pete Beach
Hotel Zamora is a new addition to the Tampa Bay area; stunning the community with its grotto pool, rooftop patio, and delicious restaurant. They really have hit all the marks. The canal side views of the water allow you to pull your boat up for lunch and enjoy. Visit their rooftop bar and lounge area to appreciate the best views of the sunset St. Pete Beach has to offer.
3. The Tradewinds Resorts
Holding the title of the largest beach front property on St. Pete Beach, the Tradewinds Resorts are a top destination for tourists and locals to enjoy year-round. The Tradewinds Resorts are made up of RUMFISH Beach Resort and The Island Grand Resort. The Guy Harvey restaurant located on the RUMFISH side serves as one of the hotel restaurants for the grounds. As local vendors for the community, we have done the replacement cushions for several beach hotels in the area, including The Guy Harvey restaurant at RUMFISH. The replacement cushions we installed here used trusty Sunbrella fabric to ensure they would have a long lifespan. The Tradewinds Resorts boast beautiful rooms, several restaurants, and activities for the kids including a beach water slide.
4. The Sandpearl Resort
The Sandpearl Resort located on Clearwater Beach is a top choice for vacationers. Patio Lane has helped provide commercial cushions for Clearwater resorts for over a decade now. This resort truly covers all the bases. Beach front for easy access, a lagoon pool for a cool dip after lounging, fitness center, spa, and a kids club to make sure the whole family is taken care of. The spa at The Sandpearl has been named one of the top spas in North America by Conde Nast Traveler. The resort's desired aesthetic runs true to its backdrop, cultivating a purely 'Florida feel' throughout. Enjoy several outdoor common areas to relax, have a drink, and take in the view.
