One of St. Petersburg’s most iconic destinations is making quick progress on renovations to further enhance its beauty. The historic Vinoy Renaissance announced last September that it was set to begin a “comprehensive transformation” of its property through a series of renovations and redesigns. Construction began in the fall of 2021 on the first phase of that transformation, and as work rapidly continues, a resort spokesperson confirmed that the renovation is on track to finish later this year.

Led by world-renowned firms Rockwell Group and Hart Howerton, the elegant redesign includes the resort’s celebrated veranda, porte cochère, main lobby, guest rooms, spa, ballrooms and restaurants. Designers have taken cues from the iconic resort’s storied past in an effort to “incorporate elegant design elements while celebrating The Vinoy’s traditional Mediterranean Revival design and old-Florida grandeur.”

Locals who frequent The Vinoy’s veranda and lobby for bites and drinks with a view will be among the first to experience the reimagined social areas. The veranda’s renovation is expected to make for an even more elegant and relaxing experience. In addition to a new patisserie, the renovated lobby will include restoration of the resort’s original cypress wood beams and ceramic flooring, along with the installation of lantern chandeliers.

Renovations also include upgrades to the resort’s pool terrace, most notably a new pool restaurant and bar adding to the existing Paul’s Landing. Plans call for stylish cabanas and sun loungers, as well.

In the grand ballroom, the resort is restoring the iconic Chihuly chandelier and installing a lush walled garden outside the ballroom’s arched windows. Learn more about The Vinoy here.
