SANDPEARL RESORT   Opened in August 2007 as the first new resort built on
EXPERIENCE         Clearwater Beach in 25 years, the Four Diamond
                   Sandpearl Resort is tucked seamlessly into Florida’s pristine
                   Gulf coast along miles of pearlescent white sand beaches. For
                   nearly a century the original Clearwater Beach Hotel - built as a
                   summer bungalow by a Florida lumberman in 1917 - reigned as
                   the crown jewel of the destination, and passed its rich legacy
                   onto the Sandpearl, for future generations to call their own.

                   This fresh resort blends eco-conscious luxury with unparalleled
                   amenities and features 253 guest rooms and suites, full-service
                   spa, upscale and “toes-in-the-sand” dining and state-of-the-art
                   meeting/event space, as well as Enrichment Programs from
                   Astronomy Nights and Artists-in-Residence to Marine Discovery
                   Kayaking and Organic Cooking Classes.

                   As the sun sets over the Gulf, the day wanes with a nightly
                   beach sunset ritual, where a select guest is chosen to ring the
                   original dinner bell from the historic Clearwater Beach Hotel.

LAID BACK LUXURY   Reflecting an elegant island style, the laid-back unpretentious
                   atmosphere embodies a “British Colonial meets Tommy
                   Bahama” feel. The resort décor is elegant, yet always
                   comfortable, with a “no jacket required” philosophy. Plantation
                   style espresso wood doors span the width of the first floor,
                   opening graciously into the lobby, welcoming guests with the
                   crisp scent of Island Breeze and unveiling conch chandeliers
                   ensconced in wrought iron, as well as other marine life including
                   Egret sculptures, coral and shells displayed among cozy clusters
                   of “sink in” furniture.

                   A collection of $1 million of artwork from legendary Florida artist
                   Christopher Still and other renowned names graces the walls with
                   classic Florida scenes.

ECO-CONSICOUS      Sandpearl Resort is the first resort in Florida to achieve LEED Silver
                   Certification by the U.S. Green Building Council, and one of only 15
                   worldwide. The resort makes environmental stewardship a priority
                   with features including in-room energy management systems, low
                   emission construction materials, geothermal pool heating system
                   and extensive water conservation practices.
ACCOMMODATIONS    Capturing the sophisticated, yet comfortably casual essence of
                  Southwest Florida, guest rooms feature airy, Olde Florida inspired décor
                  with citrus-hued interiors, wainscoting and black and white photography
                  of seascapes and marine life.

                  Evening turn-down service with “pearls of wisdom” and daily morning
                  newspaper “doorstep” delivery.

                  Bathrooms with expansive marble vanity, lighted makeup mirror and
                  Gilchrist & Soames amenities.

                  50 suites offer one- and two-bedroom floor plans and feature
                  additional amenities including in-room washer and dryer, full gourmet
                  kitchen and roman tubs. The hotel also features a
                  Presidential Suite with striking Gulf views and expansive terrace
                  and a free-standing two story Gulfside Suite right on the beach.

                  As a part of the resort’s conservation efforts, an in-room energy
                  management system monitors room temperatures remotely so that
                  occupied rooms are controlled by the guest, but unoccupied rooms can
                  be adjusted to reduce expending excess energy.
                  System cut-offs on sliding glass doors automatically prevent
                  unintentional energy waste when guests are enjoying a balmy breeze
                  from their balcony.
