A storm cell resulting from a storm system in the Gulf of Mexico produced a spectacular looking water spout over Siesta Key, last month, July 24 2019 at approximately 10am in the morning. The water spout, caused from up and down drafts in convective loops within a storm system, was short lived and stayed just off the main land of Siesta Key.

We are extremely pleased to announce, no damages have been reported 😊

Tiki’s are a popular theme on Siesta Key and for good reason.. who wouldn’t want to relax on Siesta Key under a tropical tiki hut setting, enjoying some shade while soaking in the Siesta Key atmosphere?

At Siesta Key Beach Resort and Suites; Tiki & Pool we have recently completed our Large tiki area, located just outside of our check-in/checkout lobby. The Tiki area has a surface area of 100 ft and a ceiling that reaches just under 30 ft in height.

The new Tiki area is equipped with over a dozen tables and chairs, for our guests convenience as well as vending and ice machines that are available to our guests 24 hours a day.

There are plans in the works here at Siesta Key Beach Resort and Hotel, for installing a tiki bar in this area as well, that will include a full-service bar, complimented by flat screen TV’s! More info on that later!

Perhaps guests and patrons’ favorite part of this area is the fantastic mural that stands 17’ 6’’ tall x 20’ 6’’ wide and was painted by Sarasota local artist Shawn McLoughlin, or as locals call him, Siesta Shawn. The mural depicts a family of four wading and snorkeling in our beautiful Sarasota blue ocean water.

The mural can be found facing north just outside Siesta Key Beach Resort and Suites main lobby, for all Siesta Key Village patrons to enjoy!
