What Does Sunseeker Resort Have To Offer?

The Sunseeker Resort is set on 24 acres in Charlotte Harbor’s most prime real estate, across the Barron Collier Bridge from the charming town of Punta Gorda. 

Guests will experience:

  • Over 700 rooms

  • Aileron Golf Club – a flawless 18-hole golf course 10 minutes away
  • Multiple swimming pools
  • A world-class spa offering massages, facials, and bridal packages
  • A state-of-the-art gym with modern equipment and classes overlooking the scenic water views

Those behind the design at Sunseeker put careful thought into the comfortable nuances of the Sunsuites. 

With the idea to bring to life the warmth of home blended with the relaxing vibes of an upscale resort, those who stay here will easily find their place.

SunSuites are offered in 1, 2, or 3-bedroom varieties along with:

For those who don’t need a suite, there are still plenty of comfortable options at hand:

  • Premium Queen
  • Premium Harbor Queen
  • Premium King
  • Premium Harbor King

These spacious options all have tall windows to enjoy the sunrise or sunset and are outfitted with the most modern, easy-to-use technology.

For those looking for just a bit extra, these rooms might be best:

  • Corner Balcony Harbor View Queen
  • Corner Balcony Harbor View King

These two room options have the same amenities as the Premium-class rooms, but have amazing views from attached balconies with a private space to enjoy the nice breeze from the river.

A Dreamy Wedding Destination 

This resort has lofty goals to become Southwest Florida’s premiere destination for weddings. 

Big or small, Sunseeker will have event spaces to please everyone, including direct access to a full-service salon and riverfront ballrooms with scenic views.

The resort has well-respected wedding planners on staff for engaged couples to make all the necessary arrangements.

Bridal suites are available for the bride and closest friends and family to get ready for the big day.

Sunseeker offers a variety of wedding packages and a wide-ranging menu of catering options. 

The soon-to-be newlyweds can choose a pre-selected menu, customize their own food offerings or arrange another event at one of the 20 on-site restaurants or bars.

Whether you envision a classic black-tie affair or elegant contemporary celebration, our waterfront ballrooms, world-class hotel amenities and dedicated hotel, banquet and culinary teams provide extraordinary service, so couples know their only requirement is their presence.”

Allegiant Airlines Is Behind Sunseeker Resort

It’s not often that an airline is behind the vision of a luxurious resort. Allegiant Airlines takes pride in being the carrier of a plentiful list of sunny destinations, including nearby Punta Gorda.

In Allegiant’s own words, “why stop at flying our customers to other places when we could create an entirely new resort experience ourselves?”. That is the origin of the Sunseeker Resort.
