Opal Sands Resort on Clearwater Beach
The views have changed over the years on Clearwater Beach, with many of the smaller mom and pop hotels replaced by luxury, hi-rise resorts. Now, some of the best views are from one of the 230 rooms at Opal Sands. Opened in 2016, the 15-story hotel was designed so that each room has a stunning view of the Gulf of Mexico and private balconies. The curve of the building creates a beautiful exterior and offers unobstructed views up and down Clearwater Beach.
Opal Sands offers the service and amenities to truly have a staycation right in our own backyard. Upon entering the valet, the service starts with a welcoming greeting as guests head to the lobby level with an escalator ride. Be sure to look up to view the beautiful metal and glass sculpture hanging down, created by Mark Aeling of MGA Sculpture Studio and modern master Christopher Still. All the paintings and artwork in the hotel were created for the property by local Floridian artists under the direction of Christopher Still, who grew up on Clearwater Beach. All the artwork has been inspired by the words, “Color, reflect and restore,” according to Still.
“The artwork has been inspired by the sun shining on our opalescent beaches and the reflections of color on our Gulf waves,” says Christopher Still.
It is worth a stay to view all the colorful works of talented artists including Carrie Jadus, Duncan McClellan, Mariel Bass and Arnold Ruiz.
Relax and sun on the sun deck, while splashing in the zero-entry pool. Pamper yourself with a treatment from the Spa, or workout at the fitness center. No need to leave the property for dining as Sea Guini offers delicious seafood and Italian inspired dishes for lunch and dinner. For a casual lunch or tropical drink, choose the Tiki Bar and Sandbar with views of the stunning Gulf. To truly escape and re-charge, the choice is yours at Opal Sands with its convenient Clearwater beach location, luxury service, fine dining, and amenities. Choose wisely! M
