As a part of its $320 million in renovations, JW Marriott Marco Island on Florida’s southwest coast just reopened its iconic Lanai Suites, closed since summer 2015. Just in time for this year’s summer season, the exclusive suites reopened and are ready to welcome guests.
The one- and two-bedroom suites (up to 1,200 square feet) feature a cabana-like feel with airy decor, spacious living spaces, a wet bar and a kitchenette. Private patios are steps from the resort’s white-sand beaches and pools, and are terrific spots to watch the sun set over the Gulf of Mexico. What’s more, the suites can be customized for each guest’s stay, making them feel even more at home during their stay in what feels like a beachfront cottage. Aside from the Lanai Suites, JW Marriott Marco Island has plenty of other accommodations in which to spread out during your stay, from spacious guestrooms to the penthouse and two presidential suites.
The beachfront resort lives up to its location with myriad activities to keep you busy during your days in the sun or comfortable if you would rather laze under the Florida sun on a chaise lounge or under a cabana. Go stand-up paddling or kayaking in the calm Gulf waters or get some speed on a jet ski. For a real treat, plan an excursion to a deserted island for a private yoga lesson and lunch on the beach — it’s an experience you won’t forget.
Speaking of experiences you won’t forget … make an appointment or two (or more!) at the Spa by JW. While you may in fact drift off to sleep during a treatment by one of the highly skilled aestheticians or therapists, the way you feel afterwards will remind you of the sheer bliss found within the spa that aligns with the spa’s philosophy designed around four outcomes: calm, renew, indulge, invigorate. Your day at the spa also includes use of the facilities, which includes a pool exclusive to spa guests.
Each evening as sunset approaches, be sure to settle yourself in with a view of the Gulf and watch the sky turn into oranges and pinks and purples as the sun dips below the horizon, and toast to another day on the Paradise Coast.
