Keeping it Tropical with Devi & Co

As you know I am all about getting tropical! Even in fall because well, this is what fall here in Florida looks like! I am always on the hunt for all things paradise inspired, colorful, and unique so when I found Devi & Co I knew I was in love. Can you believe this is a real orchid in my necklace?!? Devi & Co hand preserves beautiful orchid blossoms and pairs them with fine gemstones for the most perfect tropical necklace that will last a lifetime! You can just tell they are made with love too. There is a range of colors and different gemstone combinations for you to choose from and the owner, Sheley, is so kind and helpful with picking out the perfect one for you.

Zota Beach Resort Daycation

Zota Beach Resort

Hi friends! Last weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Zota Beach Resort in Longboat Key for a “daycation”. If you follow me over on Instagram you may have seen that I brought along one of my best friends, Michelle and we had such an amazing experience! My husband and I love staycations from when we lived in Vegas to now in St. Pete, but this is my first ever daycation. A lot of hotels that we’ve stayed at allow guests only for the pool and private beaches, so to be able to have access to the amenities for the day without having to book for a full night was awesome! Here’s what is included in the daycation:

  • Access to the oceanfront infinity pool and huge hot tub as well as lounge chairs with towels and umbrellas with poolside food & beverage service.
  • Access to the private beach- including 2 beach chairs.
  • Guest room for the day (10am-4pm)- perfect to take a break from the sun, rinse off, nap, change clothes.
  • Complimentary valet and parking.
  • Use of hammocks and recreational games (including giant chess and corn hole).

The cost is $99 for the day per group, which is such a great deal for all of this!

The drive was only about an hour from where we live in St. Pete and most of the way was scenic over bridges and by the water. We arrived at Zota Beach Resort and pulled right up to the complimentary valet with 2 attendants ready to assist us. We walked in to the beautiful lobby and were greeted by the hotel manager, we checked in to our room for the day within minutes. The resort has a modern, luxurious vibe and everything is clean, bright and beautiful. Our room was on the 4th floor with an amazing view of the pool and the beach!

Zota Beach Resort

The guest rooms are very spacious and reflect the natural beauty of the beachfront paradise. We just loved the bathroom -seriously major inspiration on our next bathroom remodel at home! The bed was comfy too! We didn’t nap on it but used for a fun bestie pic in our fav Honeymoon Hats 🙂

Next we headed down to the pool area to get a lay of the land. There were several lounges and large sitting areas as well as open hammocks to relax on all surrounded by palm trees. They also have a life size chess board and corn hole. The whole area is just steps to the beach!

Zota also offers poolside cabanas which come complete with large comfortable couches, a big screen TV, a safe for your valuables, a fan, and a refrigerator stocked with water that has room to store anything else you need kept cold. They vary in size and would be perfect for a group! There is an additional charge for these, but would be well worth it, especially with a family or group of friends. We got to try one out for the day and loved it!

Zota Beach Resort

After touring around the property we decided it was time to take a dip in the infinity pool! This was my favorite part of the day! We ordered a couple tropical cocktails and just relaxed in the sun:) Perfect for some catching up with one of my long time friends. Not only did the server stop by for drink refills and waters but they also offered to take a few pics too! Our favorite drinks were the Zota-Rita, the Blueberry Mojito, and the Strawberry Mo-Tito!

Now we were starving, so time for lunch! The resort has two restaurants, Cascades Pool Bar, which has appy’s, bites, salads, and sandwiches and there is Viento, which offers a “Floribbean” culinary concept influenced by Florida, Caribbean, and Mediterranean cooking techniques and flavors. Since we were just out of the pool we decided to sit at the pool bar and get a couple of bites. We split the crab cakes and the quesadilla and both were so tasty! The bartenders were also very attentive and gave us so much info on the property and surrounding area.

After our relaxing lunch we headed out to the beach where they have the cutest striped umbrellas and lounge chairs overlooking the golden sand and a beautiful view of the Gulf of Mexico. The beach was not crowded at all, even for a Saturday! This is my happy place.

We spent the rest of our time back in the pool with sunshine and good times! I can not say enough amazing things about our daycation experience and the service at Zota Beach Resort. Every employee was so hospitable and really went above and beyond, the property is beautiful and the location is perfectly placed in paradise. Whether you are looking for a tropical getaway, a staycation, or a daycation I would recommend this resort. We are already planning our next trip back with our husbands and friends! Hope to see you there!

white dress

I went for a walk in our neighborhood and found this cute little blue dock! I could really be here all day searching for all of the sea life. Between here and behind our place we see dolphins almost daily, manatees about 1-2 a month and lots of rays and jumping fish! It just never gets old for me either. Fun fact: We grew up going to that little island right across the water:) So many great memories spent there!

Treasure Island is one of my favorite beaches to take out of towner’s to when they come for a visit. It has the longest stretch of perfect Florida sand before hitting the calm Gulf water. Almost every time we are here we see dolphins too! Sunsets are a dream out here, but trust me the sunrises are worth waking up early for (plus you pretty much get the whole beach to yourself!). I am so glad to be back home and minutes away from this beautiful spot! A must when going to any beach is a cute coverup like this one from Beaches & Boho. They have such a fun selection and are very reasonably priced too! You can shop them here: Beaches & Boho. I’ve also added links for my accessories below 🙂 Hope you have a sunny week!
