Step right up to seaside splendor on Sarasota’s Lido Key
Come one, come all to Cirque St. Armands Beachside, Opal’s newest Lido Key-based hotel. Just steps from the white powdery sands of Lido Beach and a two-minute walk to the sophisticated district of St. Armands Circle, this circus-inspired hotel pays homage to the legacy of one of Sarasota’s most famous residents: John Ringling.
But don’t let “circus” lead you to think clichéd or trite when it comes to the vibe of this hotel. Picture something like The Great Gatsby meets Moulin Rouge with grandiose billowing drapery, geometric and stripe patterns, ornate ostrich feather chandeliers, golden wall sconces, and pin-striped columns. It’s a dreamy backdrop – with all the same core tenants of an Opal property: signature hospitality, food and beverage, and upscale accommodations that offer views from the beach to the bay.
