WHO: TradeWinds Island Resorts – the Island Grand and RumFish Beach Resort – on St. Pete Beach, Florida, the largest meeting resort on Florida’s west coast

WHAT: In addition to a recent round of guest room renovations, TradeWinds Island Resorts has just completed a $2.2 million total redesign of all indoor meeting spaces and common areas. Inspired by the resort’s ideal setting on Florida’s award-winning gulf coast, the 50,000 square feet of updated space includes the Grand Palm Colonnade lobby area, all meeting rooms, and the Pavilion at the TradeWinds Island Grand property. New carpeting, furniture, lighting and fresh paint has transformed the spaces with vibrant blues, metallic accents and nautical details, creating the perfect ambiance for attendees ready to navigate an unforgettable meeting and event experience. Throughout the lobby area, dark mahogany-colored furniture and crisp, cream-colored chairs create a soothing space for gathering among the signature 20-foot palms. The chairs in all meeting spaces have been updated with sophisticated deep blue upholstery with classic gold frames.

“Despite this year’s extreme disruption and ongoing challenges, we felt it is vitally important to continue to invest in these properties, ensuring exceptional experiences for our guests,” said Joseph Smith, CEO and founder of 1754 Properties. “With the completion of these renovations, we look forward to welcoming our guests to enjoy an upgraded version of the TradeWinds they know and love.”

Newly-renovated guest rooms at both the Island Grand and RumFish Beach Resort properties provide a perfect complement to the meeting space improvements. The $13 million room renovation was completed in phases from January 2019 to March 2020 and included all 585 rooms at the Island Grand and 211 rooms at the RumFish Beach Resort. Guest room furniture at both properties now feature a sharp new look with new sofa beds, carpeting, paint, and upgraded bathroom mirrors and lighting. All soft goods were also replaced, including bedding, draperies and upholstery. Rooms at the RumFish Beach Resort also received new closet doors, sliding glass doors, windows, and club chairs in the seating area. New beachfront balconies were added to 56 RumFish Beach Resort rooms and 24 Island Grand Rooms, while new railings and a coat of exterior paint were added property-wide.

WHEN: The meeting space project was completed in Fall 2020, while the guest room renovations were completed in March 2020.

WHERE: The TradeWinds Island Resorts – the Island Grand and RumFish Beach Resort – are located directly on the sugary white sands of the Gulf of Mexico on St. Pete Beach in Florida. The resorts offer access to two properties in one, with limitless beachfront recreation, sumptuous dining, fantastic family activities and programs, and world class meeting and function facilities.
