The Sunseeker Resort Charlotte Harbor recently hit a major milestone: installation of the rooftop Jacuzzi.
After being raised eight floors in the air, the heated spa will be part of the future of the adults-only Level Blue rooftop pool experience at the resort. “This time next year guests will be enjoying and soaking up the warm Southwest Florida Gulf Coast rays while dipping into this massive new addition,” states a press release from the company.
The 50-by-10-foot spa is set to hold 11,000 gallons of water, measuring 1140 cubic feet and weighing 19,863 pounds. Fully made of stainless steel, the spa was manufactured in North Carolina by Bradford Products, the same company behind other notable pools including: The Waldorf Beverly Hills, Circa Stadium Swim in Las Vegas, SLS Brickell Miami and Hard Rock Tampa.
A project valued at $618 million, the Sunseeker Resort is scheduled to open in May 2023. When it opens, the resort will have 785 rooms as well as 20 restaurants and bars, two pools, a spa and salon, a 117,000-square-foot “ground level experience,” the adults-only rooftop retreat, 60,000 square feet of meeting space, a harbor walk and an 18-hole golf course.
Included in the room mix will be 189 luxury one- to three-bedroom suites that will range in size from 875 square feet to 1,700 square feet and come with chef-level kitchens, private balconies and separate check-in, services and private lounges. The company calls this hotel-within-a-hotel concept Sunsuites.
The price of the project has gone up several times due to delays and supply chain issues, among other challenges.
