About Loews Don CeSar Hotel
Situated on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico, a half hour from Tampa, the Loews Don CeSar Hotel, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has become a popular seaside retreat for guests to play in the sea, sand and spa. Affectionately coined the Pink Palace for its brilliant pink exterior and Mediterranean castle-type setting, complete with regal, Moorish bell and clock towers, imperial turrets and Palladian windows, the AAA Four-Diamond hotel fosters an elegant yet comfortable atmosphere. Its Spa Oceana offers an extensive range of signature treatments, and the rooftop garden is a serene spot to relax before or after treatments. There is ample meeting space, two beachfront pools, a menu of dining options and kid-friendly features on-site, and fishing, golf and tennis are just minutes away.

Spa Oceana is a reflection of its seaside setting, with colorful tile mosaics of coy fish and tidal waves and seashell decor. The 11,000-square-foot spa has 16 treatment rooms with sliding glass doors that open to sea views; additional amenities include a full salon, steam room and private suite area for groups, bridal parties and family functions. Guests can unwind next to the fire pit on the spa's rooftop garden, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, or indulge in luxurious body wraps and scrubs, rejuvenating facial and hydrotherapy treatments and relaxing massage services. AromaTouch is the signature treatment, and guests can try rituals like the Spice Island Massage, which incorporates a blend of exotic spices and uses a pink granite gem to massage the skin.
