The very name of Bali Hai Beach Resort sounds tropical, and after one night in their apartment-style suites, you’ll certainly feel worlds away from home. Spend time on the private beach; drink a Whiskey by the Pool cocktail as the name suggests you should; let a seaweed body wrap embrace you at the spa before you scoot around Anna Maria Island in a rented electric car. With shopping, dining and the sweet sea breeze around every corner, you’ll wish your apartment at Bali Hai Beach Resort was your forever home.

    These luxury accommodations just south of Sarasota will tempt you to stay for weeks. Skip the hotel-style rooms and opt for a townhouse or villa with up to three bedrooms for you and your crew. Hang around the firepits after grilling out all afternoon, then watch the sunset and attend a drum circle on Nokomis Beach. If you have your own boat, you can rent a slip in their marina to enjoy a quick escape to the open water.

    Lido Beach Resort

    Though the Tiki Building offers exceptional guest rooms with kitchenettes, you’ll want the full apartment-like experience found in the Palm Building. Beautifully renovated with luxurious touches, each suite feels like a condo in one of Sarasota’s most desirable high-rises. A Gulf-view suite is a must, not only because these have an additional bedroom for guests, but because the floor-to-ceiling bay windows and large balconies offer coastline views that can’t be beaten.
