Opal Sands Resort Debuts in Clearwater Beach, Florida

February 17, 2016 -

Opal Sands Resort, the newest property under Ocean Properties, Ltd. & Affiliates, is opening in February in Clearwater Beach, setting the bar for luxury beachfront accommodations in Florida's #1 Best Beach Town, as named by USA Today.

Inspired by the powdery white sands and lively atmosphere, the highly anticipated resort brings upscale accommodations with a contemporary feel to Florida's Gulf Coast. The curvature of the property, designed by Design Duncan Miller Ullmann, gives every room a clear view of the stunning gulf sunsets with all 230 guest rooms and suites offering spectacular oceanfront views, private balconies, and modern amenities. The property's chic décor, stylized wood accents, and subtle touches of turquoise and blue are perfectly suited for the beachfront escape.

Opal Sands Resort offers a wide range of upscale amenities and services. The zero-entry outdoor pool and sun deck are perfect for kicking back with a handcrafted cocktail while a state-of-the-art fitness center, full-service spa, and retail shops round out the on-property diversions.

With a variety of dining options, Opal Sands Resort features Sea-Guini, Sea-Guini Lounge, Reflections pool bar, and beachside Sand Bar. Sea-Guini offers a tropical twist on seafood-centric Italian dining. A focus on farm-fresh and sea-to-table ingredients will be infused throughout the menus at this three-meal-a-day spot, with unprecedented views of the water and Gulf of Mexico sunsets. The spacious, outdoor tiki bar, Sand Bar, serves signature cocktails, as well as dozens of classic libations, using only the freshest juices, fruits, purées, and hand-picked herbs.

The Gulf views provide the perfect backdrop for special events, weddings, celebrations, and meetings, as the resort will offers 17,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor event space, and 3,366 square feet of event lawn for elegant outdoor affairs.

Complementing the beauty of Clearwater Beach, Opal Sands Resort showcases a specially-commissioned collection of artwork by local Floridian artists. With a variety of paintings, sculptures, and mixed-material collaborations, featured artists include Christopher Still, Mark Aeling, Carrie Jadus, Duncan McClellan, Mariel Bass, and Arnold Ruiz.

Opal Sands Resort is within walking distance from the entertainment and activity of the boardwalk and nearby island-style shopping, as well as an ideal launch pad for land and water activities, tours, museums, galleries, and more. The hotel is also conveniently located between two international airports, just 25-35 minutes from both Tampa International Airport and St. Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport.
