Guided by the symphony of the sun, guests of The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota are entranced by its cadence – the promise of new discoveries every sunrise suggests and the enveloping contentment every sunset imparts. From our Florida resort’s perch in downtown Sarasota, neither discovery nor contentment are far from reach, whether it is the rich, artistic uniqueness that surrounds this Florida Gulf Coast retreat or the sandy, white beaches that indulge the desire to relax. Take time to explore the city's fine dining, museums, art galleries and performance venues. Spend moments, too, savoring the tranquil coastal lifestyle, particularly as the sun descends. As you find yourself entranced by this magical moment, watch as the sky paints a colorful canvas of orange, pinks and purples, and possibly even a flash of green, signifying the moment when the setting sun kisses the water goodnight.
