Pack Your Bags – We Are Headed to Zota Beach Resort


Viento Kitchen & Bar

If there’s anything better than dining on delicious, expertly prepared food, it’s enjoying it in a spectacular waterfront setting.

Things to Do

With a coastal breeze in your hair and the sugary-fine white sand of Longboat Key between your toes, it is hard to imagine a better place to be. Besides beach bumming, get lost in time at Zota Beach Resort’s palm tree-lined, sun-drenched pool deck. You will love the infinity-edge pool and 21-person hot tub has to be the largest I have ever seen! Eight private cabanas featuring outdoor living rooms complete with lounge furniture, refrigerators and a respite from the sun are available for daily rentals.


Key Lime Martini

After taking a dip or soaking in the sun, visit the local boutiques of St. Armand’s Circle or check out a guided tour with Key Culinary Tours. St. Armand’s offers fashionable attire, nail salons, and even several art galleries—perfect for an afternoon splurge. Other shopping centers include University Town Center, The Prime Outlets of Ellenton, and even the Red Barn Flea Market, which is full of great finds!

On a Personal Note

Zota Beach Resort is a really fun property! It really gives off a Miami vibe yet Longboat Key reminds you of how tranquil the area really is. I think this property is a perfect get-a-way for any occasion, but I would highly recommend it to disconnect from the world. Find your space at the resort, by the pool, on the beach, or like myself - drifting away in a rental kayak while dolphin watching. Once again, The Opal Collection and Ocean Properties have scored big with this unique gem. Special thanks to Katie Kole and Jessica Shashaty of The Mayfield Group and Roy Padgett, General Manager of Zota Beach Resort for the wonderful accommodations. Also, thank you to Sandra Rios, Director of Marketing and Communications and the Bradenton Area CVB along with Visit Sarasota for the amazing hospitality.
