Florida Resort Woos Canadians

Sirata Beach Has The All-Inclusive Touch

The Sirata Beach Resort in St. Pete Beach, Florida, can truly lay claim to being a pioneering presence in Florida’s tourism trade.

Cricket Wagner, the property’s director of sales, told a Thursday Toronto gathering that the Gulf of Mexico-fronting property is likely the only resort in all of Florida that has an all-inclusive package for its guests. The package covers the likes of a one-bedroom king suite; three daily meals; taxes; tips; and “you can drink all day as much as you want,” she said, adding the package is now available for $399 for two people.

It must be booked for at least four nights.

Wagner said the Sirata Beach Resort lives up to its name as well, having a beach that’s 750 yards long and 350 deep, and different beach activities – among them para-sailing – are available for guests.
Resort features include three restaurants and two beach bars, with those visiting the beach bars able to have “their toes in the sand and a drink in your hand.”

Children will find an X-Box room that has cushions for them to sit on.

Guests can also choose from “14 styles of rooms” and a renovation project slated to begin in September will be completed in March and include the redoing of all guest units.

Guests can opt for suites with fridges.

Wagner said there are 18 restaurants and shops within half a mile of her resort as well.

Meanwhile, Tracy Connolly of Visit St. Petersburg Clearwater said Sirata Beach Resort’s guests who wish to spend time away from the beach during their stay can easily do so, with urban attractions being “super close…You have the best of both worlds.”

Those at the gathering were told that every sunset in St. Pete Beach differs and is “spectacular.”
