Haute Hotel: 9 Ways to Relax at the Pink Palace on St. Pete Beach

By: Kara Franker


In this edition of our Haute Hotel series for VISIT FLORIDA, we’re checking out the historic and lovely Loews Don CeSar Hotel on St. Pete Beach.

Situated on the sugary white sands of the Gulf of Mexico, the Pink Palace was built in the Great Gatsby era of the 1920s. Today the Mediterranean-style castle by the sea is a luxurious landmark.

Here are 9 ways to have the most relaxing vacation you can imagine at the Don CeSar:

1. Toast to a little romance while you’re on vacation and kick back in one of the lounge chairs on the white sand beach.

2. Go for a swim in one of the sparkling oceanfront pools. Or book a spa treatment at Spa Oceana.

3. Enjoy the year-round perfect weather that Florida is famous for — like on this gorgeous day in January.

4. Find your serenity with yoga on the sand. The resort offers a myriad of daily activities including a morning yoga class on the beach.

5. Take a nap in one of the beachside hammocks.

6. Indulge your sweet tooth at Uncle Andy’s Ice Cream Parlor. This old-fashioned ice cream shop offers yummy banana splits and strawberry shakes that are homemade and deliciously authentic.

7. Admire the stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico and one of Florida’s most beautiful stretches of sand.

8. Dine at the award-winning Maritana Grille, which features an array of gourmet choices, including delicious local seafood dishes.

9. Take a moment and let the Florida sunshine rush over you.
