Beachfront Dining
The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel

When planning events and gatherings for groups, especially amid the Covid-19 pandemic, everything becomes just a little bit more complicated. Finding somewhere to eat is no exception. Thankfully, our destination allows meeting planners to choose from many restaurants equipped to service groups. Even better? Lots of them are outdoors! It's no secret that dining outside has been a bright spot these days. Harvard Medical School cites that spending time outdoors is a "prescription for better health" with potential benefits including increased concentration and happiness. These in turn, can play an instrumental role in the success of your event.

From outside waterfront dining to views of cozy gardens or city sidewalks, we have it all. Take a look at some top spots for dining al fresco along with some group-friendly restaurants. Don't want to leave your resort? Our destination's largest meeting facilities all feature outdoor spaces including expansive open-air terraces and lavish lawns. The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel's subtropical climate means that there'll be an outdoor table waiting for you any time of year!

Sunny Regards,

South Seas Island Resort

South Seas Island Resort, seemingly adrift off Florida's Gulf Coast on Captiva Island, has opened 30 redesigned and renovated guestrooms. Offering pristine views of Pine Island Sound, the reimagined rooms provide a next-level, club-like feel that is welcoming and comfortable. Reward your team with an unforgettable retreat or plan your next meeting or conference in this peaceful and secluded location.

Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa

The Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa, an award-winning resort in Bonita Springs, debuts their newly renovated guestrooms. The updated rooms feature a sophisticated tropical feel with new wood flooring, and upscale furnishing and décor. Expect bright and airy accommodations, representative of the resort's waterfront location. The guestroom updates complement the resort's public space and meeting space renovation which was completed in 2020. With 454 sleeping rooms and 82,500 total square feet of flexible indoor/outdoor meeting space, there is plenty of room to create the event you've envisioned.

Lovers Key State Park Welcome Center

The new Welcome & Discovery Center serves as the gateway to Lovers Key State Park. Located on the banks of an inland waterway, the building pays homage to its beautiful backdrop, with columns designed to model mangrove roots, and glass walls that open to large observation decks. A 1,500 sq. ft. state-of-the-art multipurpose room with a catering kitchen is available for small meetings and events. Why not take a break from urban noise and gather among the serenity of sugar sand beaches and enchanting mangroves?

Pardon Us As We Grow

Southwest Florida International Airport is undergoing a $331 million terminal modernization program to improve the passenger experience and make RSW a world-class airport.  

The project is set to begin in October 2021. While we are thrilled with the exciting developments like consolidating and streamlining security checkpoints, adding concession space and providing passengers more amenities and options, this also means the airport will be under construction which may cause longer wait times.

For assistance, please look for our friendly Visitor Services booths located on the departure level as well as in baggage claim. We want your travel experience to be as seamless as possible.
