Longboat and its resorts wow Conde Nast

Longboaters need no convincing. They know intrinsically the island is a paradise of sorts — close to culture, surrounded by warm turquoise waves and beautifully peaceful.

But now it has been ranked officially by readers of Conde Nast Traveler.

The barrier island was chosen as one of the Top 15 in the country by readers of Conde Nast Traveler in the magazine’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards in the November 2020 edition.

Longboat made the national list along with Marco Island and Key West. In addition to Longboat Key itself, Conde Nast Traveler readers also rated the island’s Zota Beach Resort and The Resort at Longboat Key Club among the Top 30 resorts in the state.

Other Tampa Bay resorts that made this year’s list include the Vinoy Renaissance in St. Petersburg and Opal Sands Resort in Clearwater Beach.

JW Marriott Miami Turnberry Resort & Spa in Miami ranked as the top resort in the state, followed by The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort and Eau Palm Beach Resort & Spa.

Conde Nast Traveler readers also ranked Tampa International Airport as the sixth-best airport in the U.S.
