The Recipe for a Perfect Day in St. Pete Beach, Florida and Where to Stay to Make It Happen

Loews Don Cesar Resort and Spa in St. Pete Beach, Florida

If someone were to ask me to describe my perfect day…this would be it.

Words that I uttered to my husband last Tuesday at the Loews Don Cesar Resort and Spa in St. Pete Beach, Florida. The night prior we had taken a Sunset Sailboat Cruise out on the bay where we noshed on cheese and sipped wine. If I could pull that experience in as part of my 24 hour perfection I would.

Here’s the recipe for cooking up a perfect day on Florida’s west coast.

COUPLES MASSAGE

Every day should begin with an AromaStone Massage. This is a traditional Sweedish massage enhanced with heated river rocks. Have you ever had a hot stone massage? Oh. My. Heavens…. Before the service begins your therapist will give you the option of choosing from several scents to fit your mood. I went with pure lavender. If you book a couples massage your treatment will take place in a room with large format windows overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.

After your massage you can relax in the spa’s steam room or hot tub. You can even have lunch delivered. Traditional services include facials, manicures, pedicures, haircuts and body wraps. There are even services available for moms-to-be, teens and kiddos.

CHAMPAGNE ON THE ROOFTOP

After you’ve indulged your senses inside, step out onto the rooftop of Spa Oceana and sip a glass or two of champagne while enjoying the soothing sounds of the sea.

DAY BED ON THE BEACH

Fully relaxed? Good. Head down to the beach to your reserved day bed. Yes…you can spend the entire day lounging with your significant other on a queen sized day bed shaded by two beach umbrellas while receiving full food and beverage service from attentive resort staff.

We were able to spend six hours on the beach alternating between floating in the calm waters of the Gulf and lounging under the shade of our umbrellas.

Several of our neighboring day bed guests took naps. It’s totally acceptable.

CRAFT BEER IN SUNSETS’ LOUNGE

As your perfect day starts to wind down slip into The Don’s beach-side lounge Sunsets’ for a local craft beer or signature cocktail before heading up to your room to ready yourself for dinner.

AAA 4 DIAMOND TASTING DINNER

Frolicking in the ocean can really work up an appetite. Be sure and make a reservation for the Don Cesar’s signature restaurant Maritana Grille. This chic and intimate eatery, flanked by a beautiful salt water aquarium, serves only the freshest of delicacies from the sea.

NIGHTCAP WHILE LISTENING TO LIVE PIANO MUSIC

One of my favorite things to do at the Loews Don Cesar is to relax with a cocktail in The Lobby Bar as the day turns into night. The resort provides live entertainment on select nights and we were lucky enough to enjoy the sounds of live piano music while reflecting back on our perfect day.
