A LINGERING LOOK
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.
