Soaking Up the Sun With a Stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota Hotel Has Its Privileges

Guests Enjoy Access to the Exclusive Members Beach and Golf Clubs

SARASOTA, FL--(Marketwire - Jun 30, 2011) - Sarasota, Florida is a vibrant hub of sun-filled adventures; whether lounging poolside or on the beach, taking in a game of tennis or delighting in a round of golf, soaking it all in at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota has its privileges.

Guests of our Sarasota beach hotel enjoy access to the exclusive Members Beach Club. Just three miles from the hotel on the beautiful white sand beaches of Lido Key, the Club offers guests a private beach, heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi, Ritz Kids® recreational programs, an array of distinctive beach activities and elegant ladies' and gentlemen's changing facilities. There's no better place to watch a spectacular sunset than on the beach where you can enjoy a fire-side gathering every Wednesday through Saturday to celebrate one of nature's most awe-inspiring shows.

Well-known as a golfer's paradise, Florida offers an abundance of courses; yet none as picturesque as the tropical, 18-hole championship course guests of our Sarasota hotel experience at the elite Members Golf Club. Challenge yourself to a game on the Tom Fazio-designed course strategically sculpted to create elevation, contouring and framing for each hole in a fashion that gracefully rolls among a dozen scenic lakes and extensive landscaping.

For a truly memorable golf retreat, take advantage of one of our golf packages -- Golf Fore One, Golf Fore Two, Birdies and Backrubs Golf, or Fairways and Greens -- available through the end of the year. Depending on the package, you'll be treated to the well-appointed guest rooms and exclusive amenities of The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota, including The Members Spa Club, Fitness Center, three tennis courts and six dining selections, a chance to improve your golf game, dining credits, and/or a massage.
