Hotel Improvements Set to Transform Sirata Beach Resort
A Look at what #GetSiratified Really Means!
As we begin to close out the last phase of our $15 million makeover, you’ll discover changes that are more than just physical. It’s an entire new experience that starts the unique ability to walk from your room to our private beach, that every guest enjoys. Add that to the newly designed Harry’s Beach Bar with delicious new cocktails and local brews. Sip those from our newly designed luxury pool or sip in the sun as the little ones enjoy Sprouts Splash Zone. And if that’s not enough, we’re just getting started….
Located directly on the Gulf of Mexico with the newest rooms on St. Pete Beach, the Sirata Beach Resort is proud to be entering the final stages of a massive $15 million transformation focused on making every guests’ experience one to remember for a lifetime.
Set to be completed this fall, the resort’s renovations are being led by the award-winning architectural and design firm EOA Group, and has already included a redesign of 382 guest-rooms and suites, the newly opened Harry’s Beach Bar and upgraded meetings and event space along with the addition of new pools, a beachfront oasis, the Sprouts Kid’s Splash Zone, private cabanas, a hanging chair garden/firepit and one-of-a kind murals created by a local muralist Derek Donnelly.
The Sirata Beach Resort’s amenities include an unmatched, relaxing private beachfront access that’s just a short trip to downtown St. Pete’s many attractions, museums, shops, craft breweries, distilleries and more. With the growing popularity of St. Pete Beach, the completed resort will boast local influences with a refreshingly modern design to create the perfect beachfront getaway where every guest will feel instantly at home at a retreat they’ll want to return to again and again.
The Sirata Beach Resort provides each guest with the unique-to-the-area experience of walking straight from their room or the pool onto the resort’s private beach and access to countless views of what’s known as the sunset capital. The newly created Sprouts Splash Zone area immerses our younger guests in the sea turtle design inspired by St. Pete’s endangered sea turtles, to generate more awareness of these natural inhabitants.
The full service restaurant Rum Runners will reemerge this fall as a new sunset hotspot with open lounge area right on the beach. The rustic bar will remain light hearted fun with Adirondack chairs, rustic cocktail tables, a center fire pit and playful activities.
Our existing 30,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor function space exhibits a new casual yet elegant look to accommodate groups, weddings and larger events.
Sirata Beach Resort has had a long standing reputation for creating an experience that is worth repeating – for both visitors and the local community – and looks forward to surpassing expectations even more once the full renovations have been completed in fall 2018.
”There’s a story in every project, or at least there should be. The story is not about the Architecture, nor about the furniture or the artwork. It is about the dialogue, about the synergy created by disparate components in any landscape. It is about cinematic envelopment, about sensorial stimulation – about creating a mental image of a liquid moment. To that end I founded Edge of Architecture, to bridge the gap between disciplines, to bring the focus back to narrative, to the human element – and to the intimate relationship people ultimately have with their environment.” Malcolm Berg
Guests checking into the Sirata Beach Resort will enjoy staying in one of our newly redesigned guest rooms! These accommodations reflect the new “Uniquely St. Pete, Uniquely Sirata” experience. And, as a bonus, if you’re joining us for a meeting or social affair, you also will be one of the first to enjoy our new Siratafied meeting space!
February 13 – August 2 we’ll be creating the new North Pool playground area, including updating Harry’s Beach Bar. While we’ll be sprucing Harry’s up, don’t worry, we’re maintaining that genuine ‘flip flop’ beach bar entertainment experience that has made it famous.
May 28 – October 2 we’ll be adding a uniquely St. Pete design touch to the breezeway featuring artwork from a locally sourced Tampa Bay artist. This will truly complement the transformed North Pool and Harry’s area.
August 3 – October 31 our transformation concludes as we create a new area where you can truly “Play More”. The transformation of Rum Runners Bar & Grille will make it an authentically fun and engaging beachfront dining area. And, for more of that “Play More” Siratafied experience, you’ll want to check-out our new beachfront private lanai guest rooms, a signature of Sirata Beach Resort.
We appreciate your patience with us as we get Siratafied and look forward to welcoming you!
