by | Dec 19, 2023 | Travel

Sunseeker Resort Charlotte Harbor (FL.) has opened as an independently flagged property featuring 785 guest rooms, including 189 top-tier luxury Sunsuites. It’s the first completely new-build resort with more than 750 rooms to open in Southwest Florida in more than 13 years.

Originally plagued by delays by Covid and labor issues, the resort is located only 10 minutes from Punta Gorda Airport (PGD).

The resort has 60,000 square feet of meeting and conference space, 20 dining options and bars, two expansive pools, and retail outlets situated along a scenic harborside promenade. A state-of-the-art fitness center and spa will be located on the third floor of the resort’s main tower. In addition to its prime waterfront location, Sunseeker Resort Charlotte Harbor features Aileron Golf Club, a Kipp Schulties design exclusive to hotel guests.

“This level of private investment into a single hotel along the Southwest coast of Florida is unprecedented to the area and so is the experience we’ve built here,” said Micah Richins, president & COO of Sunseeker Resorts. “Sunseeker Resort Charlotte Harbor will provide the region with a stellar array of hospitality and culinary experiences that will attract guests from around the world. We are incredibly proud to debut what we believe will become the Gulf Coast’s premier destination along with the incredible amenities and unbelievable talent at the resort.”

The golf course is home to high-end practice facilities with Totracer Range technology and additional culinary offerings. The course was recently rated highly by the FSGA, with a rating of 74.1 and a slope of 134.

Sunseeker Resort Charlotte Harbor is set to introduce an unforgettable dining collection and innovative beverage program to Southwest Florida’s Gulf Coast. Guests will be able to experience a first-of-its-kind lineup of seven stand-alone restaurants, eleven bars and lounges, two poolside offerings, and a 25,000-square-foot food hall experience. The eleven bar and lounge areas on the property feature robust wine programs with a selection of internationally acclaimed fine wines, modern cocktails, local beer, and tropical libations.
