About Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa
Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa overlooks Sanibel Island and San Carlos Bay from a private peninsula along Florida's southwest Gulf Coast. Hotel rooms and suites offer private balconies with panoramic views of the bay, where dolphins can often be seen at play. The property, which encompasses 85 tropical acres, features a design concept that fuses past and present with touches such as azure ceilings and an octagonal pavilion with a turn-of-the-century cupola. Treatments at the 40,000-square-foot (3,716 square meters) spa are inspired by the holistic healing practices of the Calusa tribe, southwest Florida's first inhabitants.
The resort capitalizes on its bayfront location by providing an extensive selection of activities and amenities. A fishing pier tempts anglers, and an on-property marina enables guests to engage in a variety of water sports. Dinner and brunch cruises on a 100-foot-long private yacht are among the many romantic experiences available. A weekend kids' activity club provides parents a chance to renew intimacy. Exercise and movement classes on the daily schedule include tai chi and aqua aerobics, and eight clay tennis courts invite guests' participation.

A wooden footbridge leads guests from their accommodations to the 40,000-square-foot (3,716 square meters) spa. Surrounded by mangroves, the ocean-themed spa is decorated in warm sand tones and features eclectic art and a botanical motif throughout. In addition to 29 treatment rooms, the facility encompasses gender-separated steam rooms, saunas, and whirlpools. The spa is equipped with the distinctive BETAR (Bio Energetic Transduction Aided Resonance) bed, an enclosed dome within which guests enjoy full-body sound massage.
Treatments are inspired by the holistic, water- and sea-based healing practices of the Calusa. The signature Four-Layer Facial includes a cool, refreshing seaweed mask and soothing massage; other services include the Calusa Back Facial, Signature Calusa Facial, and Eye & Lip Facial. The Calusa Experience allows couples to perform three marine-based body care treatments on one another in a private steam chamber, followed by an invigorating steam bath. A few unique treatments are the Mango Salt Glo, Sea Softening Scrub and Sea Shell Scrub, which utilizes ground seashells as an exfoliating agent. Guests can also indulge in additional thalossatherapy rituals such as the Sea Shell Body Mask, which combines sea extracts of crushed shells, lettuce, palm, and wakame, and the toning Sea Botanical Wrap, or opt for classic herbal and milk and honey body wraps.
Among the fitness center's many facilities are an indoor exercise pool, a Pilates/yoga studio, an aerobics room, and a full complement of state-of-the-art equipment. The extensive class schedule includes aerobics, aqua aerobics, yoga, and Pilates instruction. Personal trainers are also available for one-on-one sessions.
Guests can also find space for aerobic exercise in one of the resort's five outdoor pools with stunning seaside views.

Facilities & Amenities
Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa makes the most of its beautiful seaside location. In addition to sunset cruises on the resort's private luxury yacht, guests can fish from a chartered boat or a pier jutting into San Carlos Bay. Canoes, kayaks, and powerboats can be rented from Port Sanibel Marina (a five-minute shuttle ride from the property) for full- or half-day excursions through mangrove-lined waterways.
Adults needing relaxation can spend the day lounging by the pool or playing tennis on eight clay courts staffed by expert instructors. Activities for kids are available on weekends, including "dive-in movies," age-appropriate films projected at the pool for children to watch as they enjoy a supervised evening swim.
A golf concierge can arrange tee times for guests at three nearby 18-hole courses. A short boat ride transports visitors from the resort to Sanibel Island, home to the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, which encompasses more than 5,200 acres of mangrove ecosystem, sheltering manatees, otters, and a large population of migratory birds. Among the other fun destinations in the vicinity are the former winter homes of Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, preserved as historical sites in the town of Fort Myers.
