Discover Unmatched Luxury and Tranquility at LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort

The luxury beachfront resort’s extensive redevelopment includes elevated guest rooms, a newly appointed Beach House, three restored resort pools, a fitness center, spa and property-wide enhancements

LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort, a Noble House Resort nestled along the pristine white sands and sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico, proudly announces the successful culmination of its comprehensive 18-month restoration journey. Meticulously undertaken, this endeavor marks the restoration of the award-winning resort to its former esteemed glory following significant damages incurred from Hurricane Ian in September of 2022.

LaPlaya’s revitalization project encompassed 189 of the resort’s luxurious and spacious guest rooms, the complete rebuild and elevated design enhancements of the famed Beach House, and the restoration of its four beachside pools. 

Design Details & Enhancements

The resort’s Gulf Tower and Bay Tower have undergone a complete exterior and interior rejuvenation, boasting a harmonious blend of vibrant hues and coastal-modern designs. In-room, eco-friendly enhancements feature electric mirrors with steel chassis made from 23% post-consumer recycled content, along with WaterSense toilets aimed at reducing water consumption. The surrounding tower grounds have been refreshed and renewed, once again beckoning guests to explore the lush, tropical landscape and to relax beachside as the calm turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico gently kiss the shore.

Ideally situated on Vanderbilt Beach, the Beach House underwent extensive enhancements during the restoration process. These enhancements include modern ocean-inspired color schemes, stylish in-room furniture, and new climate control systems.  The Beach House also features private outdoor fire pits for the ground floor beachfront Lanai rooms, expansive walk-in showers accented with coastal-chic barn doors, modern wood grain tile flooring and upgraded patio furniture aimed at maximizing guests’ beachside comfort.

“The completion of this extensive restoration marks a significant milestone for LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort,” says Martin Greenwood, Area Managing Director at LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort. “Since its opening in 1968, LaPlaya has set the bar for luxury experiences and top-notch hospitality. We are thrilled to welcome back guests to rediscover our amenities and rekindle their love for the cherished ambiance of our resort.
