This is classic old-money Florida elegance wrapped in a recently renovated package. The Club has 218 rooms and suites furnished in contemporary island style—rattan, carved wood and sisal—with modern furnishings and an aura of cool sophistication. It has all the amenities required of a high-end resort: 45 holes of golf with an oceanside course; a 9,000-square-foot spa; 42-inch plasma TVs; mini bars; Bose Wave radios; plush robes and spacious baths. There are six restaurants on site, but for the big splurge, go for sundown cocktails and dinner for two in a private cabana on the beach. The view of the sun sinking into the Gulf of Mexico while attended by your own waitstaff really is priceless. Rates range from $165 in the off season and continue north of that to $495 and up as summer segues into fall and winter. The Club recently added a full-service marina, so if you’re planning on arriving that way, be aware that dockage is available for boats 35 feet and up.
