Longboat Key is probably the most affluent spot in this area. Zota Beach Resort is the newest luxury boutique style hotel featuring a modern architectural style that’s super-chill. This is located on an incredible beach with a beautiful pool. It’s a perfect location for easy access to the upscale shopping, entertainment, and restaurants at St. Armand’s Circle.
This place is perfect for families or couples, and even has a beachfront event space if you’re entertaining a larger event. The beachfront rooms are beautiful. Modern, tastefully decorated and very comfortable to relax after spending the day at the beach or a day at sea. Each room appointed with a balcony to enjoy the serene views. This place has a small resort vibe, and not necessarily a party spot, as the bar typically closes by 8pm.
