After two years of renovations and revitalization, the SkyBeach Hotel and Marina hosts its grand opening beginning July 5. Located at 6800 Sunshine Skyway Ln S, the entire weekend, from opening day until July 7, SkyBeach will celebrate with an extensive roster of live musical artists, DJs, delicious food, and delightful cocktails.

Dreamy renovations enhance the luxury

SkyBeach is truly a new, shining beacon in the ‘Burg, and as its name suggests, is a marriage of heaven and earth. And while we expect many out-of-state travelers to book a suit here, SkyBeach is perfect for a local’s staycation as well. As per their slogan, SkyBeach is “positively St. Pete. Simply yours. Where doers and dreamers go to escape…”

SkyBeach boasts 113 fully renovated guest rooms and suites, each equipped with the latest in entertainment and amenity technology, WiFi, and locally sourced artwork.

Across the grounds, guests will enjoy 3 must-visit food and beverage hubs: the SkyBar (a 2 story beachside oasis serving relaxing cocktails with a stunning view of the bay), The Salty Pelican (features succulent seafood specials and beachside bites), and the Banyan Tree Café (coffee and grab-and-go eats for those eager to jaunt off and explore).

The southside sports pickleball and volleyball courts are slated to open up in August.

Get out on the bay with watersport rentals: jetskis, kayaks, and paddleboards.

Walk the white sands of the private beach, now double in size than what it used to be, or else plunge into the blue of the Serenity pools.

The above doesn’t begin to exhaust the options available to unwind, relax, and sail away at SkyBeach. You’ll have to visit to experience it all.

Make memories during the grand opening weekend

As the SkyBeach press release states: “to those seeking a uniquely energizing, yet relaxing and reinvigorating, authentically local experience, SkyBeach is the hotel that creates a positive St. Pete experience through simple, guest-directed service and thoughtful locally sourced options, offerings, and amenities.”

“SkyBeach is a way of life where friends and loved ones gather in joyous celebrations, where people come from around the world to as close as across the street to escape, reignite their soul, eat, drink, sing, dance, play and make the most of each moment life brings us.”
