Peek Inside A Naples Hotelier Service Preparing To Take Center Stage


The bar in the center of this St. Regis resort is like a circus cage with pink high-back bar chairs

Theater, dramatic design and renowned hotelier service will take center stage at The St. Regis Longboat Key Resort and Residences, set to open its doors in June 2024. The seaside sanctuary will boast a 166-room hotel and 69 private luxury condominiums nestled on more than 17 acres. HBA, SB Architects and Marc-Michaels Interior Design are bringing this unique community to life on the shores of Longboat Key. Paying homage to local circus impresario John Ringling as well as The Ringling Museum of Art and The Sarasota Ballet, subtle theatrical elements will be sprinkled throughout the property.

For instance, look for rope-like chandeliers, an oval-shaped ballroom inspired by aerial rings and a striking feature in the center of the bar reminiscent of a circus cage. Composed mostly of glass, the buildings’ exteriors will feature clean lines and soaring floor-to-ceiling windows to draw in natural light and flaunt the stunning coastal views. Residents and visitors can look forward to enjoying amenities such as a spa, chef-driven restaurants, multiple pools and a saltwater lagoon.
