Zota Beach Resort


4711 Gulf of Mexico Drive
Longboat Key, FL 34228


Welcome to Zota Beach Resort. Beautifully located on the Gulf of Mexico, Longboat's newest luxury beach resort features modern architectural touches along with stylish accommodations and distinctive dining experiences that reflect the relaxed ambiance of Florida’s West Coast.

Zota Beach Resort is inspired by the indigenous name for the area of Sarasota, Zara Zota. Historians believe that early Spanish explorers spotted the white sands on the barrier island from a distance and were reminded of the Sahara Desert. The native origin of the word Zota is blue waters, thus the area became known as Zara Zota, the Sahara by the blue waters. Over time the name evolved to become what is known today as Sarasota.

Fresh, tranquil, and inviting, the 187 guest rooms and suites at Zota Beach Resort reflect the laidback elegance of Florida’s Gulf Coast. We’ve outfitted our stylish accommodations with all the necessities, from plush beds and flat-screen TVs to refrigerators and coffee makers. You can also have your choice of views, including our contemporary resort, the beach, and the Gulf of Mexico. Ideal for family vacations and special occasions, our spacious suites feature separate living and sleep spaces as well as writing desks and other upscale amenities. We also offer a selection of premium suites with balconies and more space to make you feel at home, plus one premium suite available with a full kitchen and dining area.
