Delight in world-class service and luxury at these great romantic hotels and resorts in St. Pete/Clearwater
Watching the sunset... enjoying a long beach walk together... getting pampered at a world-class spa. Sure, you'll want to do all of these things on your romantic escape. But what you're really looking for first is that grand hotel or luxurious B&B with the his-and-hers robes, spa-on-site and superb room service. No worries – this list of romantic places to stay in St. Pete/Clearwater will get you started.
Sheraton Sand Key Resort
Want the feeling of island getaway privacy with the convenience of being close to the action – plus the pool, beach and fantastic dining? No problem. The Sheraton Sand Key Resort is the perfect place to get away as a couple, but still experience all the activity of one of the best beach towns in America. Spend the day relaxing on Sand Key – a barrier island adjacent to Clearwater Beach. Later, catch the trolley to Clearwater Beach for a cozy meal for two. If you'd rather stay in your hideaway, you can always dine at the resort’s critically acclaimed Rusty’s Bistro.
Safety Harbor Resort & Spa
The tranquil, historic Safety Harbor Resort & Spa not only boasts gorgeous views of Tampa Bay, it's also home to an expansive spa facility that provides dozens of services, including massages, facials, herbal wraps and aromatherapy baths. Experience one of the couples spa treatments, relax together in a hammock for two overlooking Serenity Beach, and don't miss the elegant Sunday brunch in the Four Springs Ballroom.
The Don CeSar
World-famous, The Don CeSar on St. Pete Beach (Tripadvisor's #1 Beach in the U.S. in 2021!) offers romance packages complete with Gulf-side accommodations and all the amenities, including fine dining at the Maritana Grille. You'll come to "The Don" for the seaside elegance and sunset finales, but you'll come back for the historic ambiance and the VIP service.
Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort
For a luxury resort experience right in the heart of the city, there's the historic Vinoy® Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club. Built in the 1920s, the AAA Four Diamond Vinoy sports an expansive outdoor pool complete with tranquil waterfalls and views of the marina. But it's also smack in the middle of downtown St. Pete, so within walking distance of many bars, shops and restaurants, not to mention the Museum of Fine Arts and The Dali Museum.
Once you arrive at the Sandpearl Resort, you'll never want to leave. Situated right on the white sands of Clearwater Beach, the No. 1 beach on Tripadvisor's 2019 list of top beaches, this resort has every amenity you'd want in a romantic place to stay. Whether you want to relax on the beach or by the pool, or be more ambitious and go biking, canoeing or parasailing together, you can find it here on Clearwater Beach. A romantic dinner on the beachfront at the award-winning Caretta on the Gulf is the perfect way to wrap up your romantic trip.
Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach
Setting the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach apart from the others is the island ambiance, right down to the private poolside cabanas. Each climate-controlled cabana comes complete with poolside attendants, curtain enclosures and even a flat-screen TV. Add in poolside spa service, and you and your special someone will be living the island experience you've dreamed of. For continued privacy and alone time, head to your room and cook up a gourmet feast for two in your room’s kitchen.
You'll want to get a little closer at this luxurious, boutique-style hotel perfectly situated on a quiet waterfront area of St. Pete Beach. This charming Mediterranean palace features modern suites, stylish dining and laid-back leisure. Relax side-by-side near the secluded swimming pool and whirlpool spa over looking the marina or take in a romantic sunset from the 360° Rooftop Lounge. No stay at Hotel Zamora is complete without a gourmet meal in the chic Castile Restaurant.
