SunStream Hotels & Resorts Sponsors Relay for Life Event

April 10th, 2014

Relay for life Fort Myers Beach

SunStream Hotels & Resorts is proud to be the presenting sponsor for the upcoming Fort Myers Beach Relay for Life, benefiting The American Cancer Society.  The April 12th- 13th event will take place at DiamondHead Beach Resort & Spa for the fourth consecutive year. It will run from 2pm on Saturday the 12th until 6:30am on Sunday the 13th. The theme for the 2014 Relay is inspired by Woodstock and has been tagged, “Peace, Love and No More Cancer”.

Relay for Life of Fort Myers Beach is an opportunity for the community to come together and raise funds for the American Cancer Society while honoring loved ones who are currently fighting or have fought the disease. The symbolism of the event, which enlists teams to walk in groups throughout the day and night, is that cancer never sleeps. The 16.5-hour Relay will be filled with live music and beach-friendly activities such as games, movies, and dance demonstrations. It will also include a stunning Luminaria ceremony, where Luminaria candles will line the walking track, held at nightfall to honor survivors and remember those lost to cancer.

The 2014 Relay for Life event fundraising goal is $100,000. Additional donations are welcomed to help Relay for Life of Fort Myers Beach reach this goal. Event participation from anyone who is interested in supporting this cause is also encouraged! Teams have been fundraising up until the event and will continue fundraising throughout the event.

Cabana’s Beach Bar Now Offers Beach Seating!

January 21st, 2014

Cabanas Beach Bar Fort Myers Beach

Cabana’s Beach Bar & Grille at DiamondHead Beach Resort and Spa is well known by travelers and locals alike as one of the best places to dine on Fort Myers Beach. It has undergone several renovations this past year, including the addition of a new thatch roof, an expanded dining area, and the addition of six new 47 inch flat-screen televisions behind the bar.  The biggest and most recent improvement is the new seating area directly on the beach!

Visitors can now bite into the delicious menu which includes items like a succulent Grouper Sandwich, or our famous Jerk Chicken and Pineapple Quesadillas, all while their toes tickle the sand. The new beach seating area has 12 new tables with colorful umbrellas for shade and unobstructed views of the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. We didn’t think it was possible, but rumor has it that Cabanas’s food and drinks taste even better when enjoyed on the sand! We aren’t sure how the rumor got started, but we definitely agree!

Come to DiamondHead Beach Resort and Spa and experience the new Cabana’s Beach Bar and Grille, the best beach bar on Fort Myers Beach!

New Year’s Eve Events for Southwest Florida

December 19th, 2013

Fort Myers Beach New years eve

New Year’s Eve 2013 in Southwest Florida includes events, parties, fireworks and even snow! With so much going on, choosing what to do is going to be a difficult task for sure. Plenty of bars and restaurants will be hosting their own New Year’s Eve events, but if you’re in the mood for something special, here is a list of area events that will ring in the New Year in grand fashion.

Fort Myers Beach New Year’s Eve

Come celebrate the birthday of the Town of Fort Myers Beach and New Year’s Eve at Time Square. The town’s 17th annual birthday party takes place from 1pm to 3pm with free live music, brownies, and cupcakes. More live music kicks in at 7pm to start the New Year’s celebration, which culminates with fireworks from the pier as well as the ball drop.

Be aware the bridge will be closed ONLY to oncoming traffic from midnight to 1:30am during the fireworks.

Naples New Year’s Eve Events

Celebrate the New Year Naples style with an evening of music, fun, fireworks and even snow! Third Street South comes alive to welcome 2014. The fireworks display will take place at the Naples Pier and starts at 7:30pm, leaving plenty of time for an early dinner before or a more elegant affair afterwards. And the earlier timing allows children a chance to partake in the celebration.

There will be live music at Fleischmann Courtyard and at many of the open-air restaurants in the Third Street South area.

Look for the snow to fall around 8:15pm. I know a lot of people come to Naples to escape the snow up north, but they all look forward to this time of the year just so they can watch it “snow” in downtown Naples. It might not be completely real, but the effect is beautiful and definitely something worth seeing!

Downtown Fort Myers New Year’s Eve

Presented by the River District Alliance, the annual Fort Myers New Year’s Eve Downtown Countdown helps tens of thousands of local revelers ring in the New Year in style. The 17th annual event starts at 8pm with live musical acts on multiple stages, a craft beer garden, and much more. A Kids Zone will feature bounce houses, ball pits, an obstacle course, giant slides, a rock climbing wall, and balloon typhoon.

As midnight approaches, the main stage will feature a countdown and a New Year’s Eve ball drop. When the clock strikes midnight a dazzling fireworks display will light up the sky over the Caloosahatchee River. The bands and DJs play long after the display, entertaining crowds until as late as 2am.

If you are in Southwest Florida for New Year’s Eve, have a great time enjoying the events and the warm Florida weather. We invite you stay at one of our six area hotels and resorts so you can be close to these wonderful New Year’s Eve events. Have a great 2014 and we hope to see you soon!
