Historic Vinoy Renaissance Resort & Golf Club Announces Next Stage of Multi-Year Renovation and Redesign Project
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (November 17, 2016) – As part of its two-year repositioning, the historic Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club announced the next phase of its renovation plans, taking place at the main resort. This stage of redevelopment includes enhancements to the resort’s amenities, including the spa, fitness center, tennis courts and dining facilities.

“We’re proud that these design plans honor our heritage, prestige and history while simultaneously incorporating modern design, technology and amenities,” said Barbara Readey, General Manager of the Vinoy. “We are thrilled to share the full vision of these exciting developments with our guests, Club Members and local community.”

Beginning in January 2017, the resort will break ground on its all-new Marina and Pool view restaurant located on the Esplanade deck. This casual-dining restaurant will feature both indoor and outdoor seating with spectacular views of Tampa Bay.

Redevelopment will continue with a new parking garage structure. Built in the current location of the tennis courts, the two-story structure will feature enhanced tennis courts on the top level with a new fitness center on level two.

While some tennis courts will remain available to resort guests and club members during the renovation, the St. Petersburg Tennis Center has partnered with The Vinoy and will serve as the temporary home for tennis play. Located less than two miles from the resort, the center will accommodate all types of use including lessons and league practice, with six courts dedicated to Vinoy Club Members. In return, The Vinoy is enabling the St. Petersburg Tennis Center to build three courts at their existing facility that the center will have use of indefinitely.

The main resort will also receive expanded spa and fitness amenities. In addition to its enhanced tennis facilities, the parking garage structure will also be home to an all-new, 16,500 square foot fitness center. Featuring state-of-the-art equipment, personal training rooms, multi-use rooms and additional locker rooms, the center is set to open in early 2018. In addition, the new, 9,000 square foot spa facility will boast water features and tranquility gardens, an all-new wet area, spa-specific locker rooms, updated treatment and relaxation rooms and ideal accommodations for private parties. The spa is slated to open in late fall of 2018.

“We are so happy to announce the plans for the next stage of this historic property’s redevelopment,” said Troy Pentecost, President and Chief Operating Officer of FelCor, the ownership group for the Vinoy Renaissance Resort. “It is our goal to provide our guests and club members with the highest quality amenities, and we’re excited for what this stage in the redevelopment will bring.”

Celebrated St. Petersburg Resort Begins Historic Transformation
Posted March 10, 2016
The Vinoy Renaissance Resort & Golf Club Undergoes Redevelopment; Vinoy Club Amenities First to Receive Updates
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (March 10, 2016) – As a St. Petersburg icon, The Vinoy Renaissance Resort & Golf Club has stood as a pillar of the community since its opening in 1925. Over the next two years, The Vinoy will be ushering in a new level of luxury. Beginning in May, the resort will commence a multi-phased renovation and redevelopment project.

The first phase will focus on the resort’s Snell Isle facilities. During the enhancement, Vinoy Club Members and resort guests can expect the following:
 An all-new Clubhouse Grill with a variety of seating options to include covered outdoor dining.
 A redesigned and expanded resort-style experience at the Sunset Swimming Pool with cabana lounges and new amenities.
 A separate new splash pad and Kids’ Fun Zone, perfectly suited for families.
 New food and beverage service conveniently located poolside and also accessible by golfers for grab-and-go snacks while on the course.
 New Ladies and Men’s Locker Room featuring fine finishes and elevated décor.
 A multi-year plan to improve bunkers, drainage, headwalls, irrigation and general aesthetics on the golf course and practice facility.

“This is one of the most exciting projects in the resort’s history since the residents of St. Petersburg approved a referendum in 1992 that led to the legendary restoration of The Vinoy, sparking a renaissance in Downtown St. Petersburg,” said Barbara Readey, General Manager of The Vinoy. “The upgrades to our resort will elevate its comfort and sophistication for our Vinoy Club Members and resort guests alike.”

Throughout this first phase, the scenic greens of the championship Vinoy Golf Course will remain available for Vinoy Club Members and hotel guests to enjoy without interruption. Temporary food and beverage facilities will be offered courtesy of a 1,600 sq./ft. tented structure.

Further phases are on the drawing board with the intent to improve many other areas of the club including:
 All new “Har Tru” tennis courts.
 A new, centrally located Tennis Pro Shop including the addition of an outdoor lounge area.
 A significantly expanded fitness center, including state-of-the-art studios and locker rooms.
 A spacious and enhanced spa facility featuring updated treatment rooms, lounge areas, wet and dry spas, and dedicated locker rooms.
 The replacement of current restaurant Alfrescos with an exciting dining concept with improved marina and park vistas.
 Additional covered parking.

The new design of The Vinoy Club is intended to honor the timeless heritage of the club and resort, while infusing the advantages of modern design and technology. Inspired interiors will be accented with luxuriant finishes, delivering a completely new look and feel to the property’s unmatched offerings.

"We are so excited to be taking this iconic property on a journey to become even better for the guests, Vinoy Club Members and community," said Rick Smith, President and CEO of FelCor, the ownership group for The Vinoy Renaissance Resort. "Beginning in May, the resort will commence a multi-phased renovation and redevelopment project, with the first phase focusing on the resort’s Snell Isle facilities. Throughout each phase, it is our intention to honor the timeless heritage of the Vinoy Club and resort while infusing the advantages of modern design and technology.”
