The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel

Happy 2021! Let's wave goodbye to the old and embrace the new with hope, gratitude and ambition.

Last year we learned that strategies and methods that previously worked well may not be as effective moving forward. As the world rapidly transformed overnight, we have had to seek innovative solutions to meet the needs of our clients amidst unforeseen constraints.

We are happy to share with you the recording of our December virtual FAM. Learn more about the ease of holding hybrid meetings along with outdoor events and activities in our destination. You will hear directly from several of our hotel partners on how they are addressing ongoing changes as well as attendee health and safety for meetings. Together, we will navigate the challenges of hosting events in the era of Covid-19, while upholding health and safety and identify solutions to minimize business disruption.

Wishing you a safe, healthy and successful new year.

Sunny Regards,

The past year has been stressful for all. Many of us continue to look for ways to escape and feel less isolated. There are a lot of books set right here in our destination which can help take your minds off negative news and provide some comfort. Get ready to be mentally transported to our beautiful destination and, as an added benefit, find inspiration for your future meeting here! A few of our favorites:

Anne Morrow Lindbergh, "Gift from the Sea"

Randy Wayne White, "Sanibel Flats" 

Preston & Child, "Crooked River"

Did you know?

In the 1970's Randy Wayne White was a light-tackle fishing guide on Sanibel Island. Occasionally, he would provide seafood to the original Doc Ford's there. Today, there are additional locations on Captiva Island and Ft. Myers Beach. The latter houses a private event venue with incredible waterfront views across 2,400 square feet. Ideal for small, intimate events or larger groups!

Contact our Meeting & Group Sales Team today to discuss ways in which we can partner! Bonus: The first ten planners to share pictures of their pet(s) with us, will be sent a special destination gift!

With our Island Incentive Offer, new meetings receive a $3 room rebate per actualized room night - up to $5,000 - May through December.
