Best resort on Captiva Island

In 1931, a small stand of fishing cottages first welcomed guests to this lush sliver of Captiva Island perfectly nestled between the Gulf of Mexico and Pine Island Sound. Here across thirteen acres of coastal island charm, our historic Florida beach resort once again welcomes you to choose your island experience — relaxation, adventure, memories and warm hospitality — with the highest quality accommodations in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.

Starting Monday, January 2, 2023 the Sanibel Causeway reopens to the public and we look forward to welcoming you back to Captiva Island. As the first, and only, full-service resort to open on the islands, we’re extremely grateful and ask our guests to travel safely, yet directly, to ‘Tween Waters Captiva — to allow the work of islands repair and restoration to carry on easily.
