Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa

When it comes to total luxury, look no further than the Hyatt Regency Clearwater Beach Resort & Spa. With an oceanfront location right on Clearwater Beach, the only question I  had when checking it out was whether the rooms or the beachside cabanas made me feel more in heaven! Suites at the Hyatt Regency range from 600 to an incredible 1,600 square feet and offer full-service kitchens and balconies with gorgeous Gulf of Mexico views, while the cabanas are climate-controlled and offer a wet bar AND flat-screen TV. Need I say more!

 

What makes this one of the best hotels in Clearwater?

Despite the incredible amenities offered, the Hyatt Regency is just as spectacular for what it offers just outside the beautiful resort. Guests can arrange for an incredible range of experiences from sailing,  parasailing, scuba diving, snorkeling, dolphin watch tours, and much more. Florida’s gulf coast is known for its incredible amount of wildlife, so make sure not to miss out on any of these unforgettable experiences!
