The Vinoy’s transformation has evolved from planning stages to reality and is well underway – ushering in an all-new level of luxury at the resort. We are proud that the design plans honor our heritage, prestige, history and environment while simultaneously incorporating modern design, luxury, technology and amenities. We are thrilled to share the following outline for the full vision of The Vinoy Renaissance Resort and Golf Club.

  • Phase 1: Snell Isle
    • As we continue our re-imagination of our Snell Isle offerings, we are excited to announce the ladies locker room and new ladies and gentleman's restrooms are schedule to open March! These locker rooms will showcase the air of elegance and contemporary luxury that is to come. The Vinoy Club Golf Grill and Swimming Pool will begin its new legacy of great foods, sprits, and fun memories this spring.  

      The enhancement in comfort and richness of the Snell Isle area will come to fruition in a variety of new amenities, each infused with soft touches and details evocative of the grandeur of the 1920s.

      These enhancements include:

      • A dining experience reminiscent of speakeasy-era exclusivity, the Vinoy Grill on Snell Isle will be for members and resort guests only. The fully upgraded and significantly expanded restaurant will provide extended views of the golf course and pool area, as well as an enlarged, covered terrace and exterior lounge.
      • A two-story men’s locker room that will be the epitome of taste and refined luxury. Complete with a grand lounge area, the locker room will feature a fully stocked bar, tables and sumptuous leather seating.
      • An expanded women's locker room that exudes an elegant, vintage-modern vibe. Hints of blue are complemented by touches of brass and marble, giving the space a sense of whimsy and contemporary luxury.
      • A fully redesigned and enlarged resort-style pool with separate kid-friendly Splash Zone.
      • A posh, Art Deco-inspired pool surrounded by features including sofa groups, intimate lounge areas, fire pits and more. With a resort chic vibe, this lounge area uses pops of green, black and white textiles and natural materials such as river stone and coral stone tile.
      • Ongoing Golf Course enhancements throughout the year designed to:
        • Improve privacy by separating the holes.
        • Enlarge tee complexes to provide better turf.
        • Improve drainage to increase playability.
      • An exciting and all new food and beverage “Snack Shack” that will be accessible to golfers at the turn, as well as our members and guests relaxing by the pool.

      The Snell Isle location will also boast a new pavilion structure and a repositioned parking area, both set to start construction in summer 2017. The area’s arrival and bag-drop experience will be revamped for you and your guests, and promises better traffic flow, a convenient location, new covered parking for cart staging and more.

  • Phase 2: Main Resort
    • We have refined the redevelopment plans for the main resort and have created a draft timeline for construction. The updated plans are outlined below.

      New Marina Bar and Grill

      Re-creation started February 6, 2017!
      Located on the resort’s Esplanade Deck, the restaurant will feature glass walls offering spectacular, uninterrupted views of the bay, downtown St. Petersburg and the Vinoy swimming pool. With space for over 200, the Marina Bar and Grill will have multiple seating options from high-top tables, communal tables, a 16-seat dining counter and bar, as well as traditional indoor and outdoor seating.

      Just beyond the deck, the enhanced Esplanade Event Lawn will be upgraded with new grass, paved areas, plush seating and fire pits to create the ideal location for hosting events – from milestone celebrations to intimate evenings under the stars with friends and family.

      New Resort Pool

      Re-creation started February 6, 2017!
      The main pool deck enhancements have begun while we work to bring all new aquatic enjoyment to our resort pool.

      New Spa

      Re-creation to begin early 2018
      As part of the redevelopment, our resort spa will be relocated to the current site of Alfresco’s and expanded from 2,000 square feet to 9,000 square feet. Extending beyond the standard resort spa, this enhanced facility promises a residential atmosphere with an ambiance entirely its own. Filled with Floridian accents and earthy finishes, such as lush tranquility gardens and water features, the Spa will provide the optimal atmosphere for relaxation, healing and renewal.

      Inside, the re-imagined spa will be ideal for private parties and will include an all-new wet area, dedicated locker rooms and updated treatment rooms/relaxation spaces. The new facility is set to open in fall of 2018.
