SARASOTA, Fla., July 16, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- With the arrival of summer, families of all sizes will be heading off to fun-filled Florida vacation destinations to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Unfortunately, this can sometimes mean dealing with obnoxious kids splashing around in resort pools, screaming in popular restaurants and perhaps even enduring temper tantrums thrown in hotel lobbies during the most inopportune times.
Lido Beach Resort hopes to provide grown-ups with a luxurious escape from the kiddos by offering an adults-only area that includes a gulf-front deck, pool and whirlpool. In a destination known for its radiant sun and white sandy beaches, Lido Beach Resort affords couples many thoughtful amenities to make any getaway feel like an adult-only vacation.
While welcoming visitors of all ages, the Sarasota resort aims to soothe the nerves of guests over the age of 18 with a more relaxed swimming experience by offering an adult-only swimming area. The beachfront oasis provides comfortable lounge chairs where Mom and Dad can imbibe adult beverages and work on a glistening tan or catch a breathtaking sunrise with some much-deserved privacy. The pool area also houses a whirlpool so the heat can be turned up on an already hot Sarasota summer evening. Adults can also take solace in the resort's tranquil garden area, complete with serene waterfalls and a reflecting pond, and a 300-foot private beach is ideal for long romantic strolls at sunset.
Couples can make reservations for an intimate yet casual dinner at Lido Beach Grille. This modern restaurant features scenic panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico and Sarasota skyline, while serving traditional American cuisine with a focus on fresh seafood. Eclectic entrees such as Jamaican chicken, fire-roasted Atlantic salmon, grilled mangrove snapper and marinated lamb chops complement house-inspired desserts, such as pineapple upside down cake, daily flavors of crème brulee and Verona chocolate molten cake. Patrons can also peruse the extensive list of wines offered by the glass or bottle, making it easy to toast to endless love. Custom cocktail concoctions, created by the Sarasota resort's friendly and prompt bartenders, are perfect for topping off a hearty meal or ending a relaxing day.
No matter how couples choose to spend their days at Lido Beach Resort, they will retire to spacious, well-equipped guest rooms featuring private balconies or patios. Significant others can comfortably cuddle up on wide recliners and custom linen-covered plush mattresses, while enjoying a romantic comedy on a 32-inch flat-panel TV. Wireless Internet access, daily morning newspapers and his and her closets are also included as premium amenities guests can expect.
In the mornings, Café Lido awaits guests with its wide array of fresh, healthy and hearty meals. Diners can sample buttermilk pancakes or cinnamon swirl french toast from the "comfort zone" or enjoy a house-made granola parfait or sunrise power smoothie on the "healthy start" menu. Specialties include sirloin steak and eggs, crab cake benedict and a coastal breakfast wrap.
