Our Green Resort

Discover Our Eco-Friendly Luxury Resort on Florida's Gulf Coast

The Resort at Longboat Key Club has made an ongoing commitment to preserve the natural resources and pristine beauty of Florida's Gulf Coast with a variety of eco-friendly programs and sustainable practices. We are the proud recipient of the state's official "Green Lodging" certification, recognizing us as one of Florida's most environmentally-conscientious vacation destinations. The resort has also been designated as a "Green Business Partner" by Sarasota County, making us the very first resort to achieve this meaningful honor in our area. Additionally, our 291-slip deep-water marina, Longboat Key Club Moorings, has also been recognized as a "Clean Marina" by the state of Florida for its environmentally-friendly practices and management systems.

By taking sustainable actions to reduce waste and conserve water, energy and other vital resources, our Gulf Coast luxury resort is helping to preserve the fragile ecosystem that is so important to the future of Florida.
