At TZort, it’s important to us that every family member or friend can relax in comfort. Therefore, we offer two options for optimal comfort. The first option is a studio that ranges from 367 to 424 square feet with two queen size beds. This studio offers a large window for a city or beachfront view, cable TV, and internet access. A coffeemaker is in place for you to wake up and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee. The second option is a one-bedroom suite that ranges from 734 to 848 square feet with two queen size beds plus a sleeper sofa in a separate living area. Just like the studio, you can expect the same amenities. The added benefit to the one-bedroom is the living area. This is an area with comfortable seating areas for your family to gather in to wind down at the end of your days.
These rooms are held to a high standard and are frequently checked to make sure they meet that expectation. The bathrooms and rooms are thoroughly cleaned and inspected. This experience is made possible by the wonderful staff of Tradewinds resort. They are passionate about making your stay as comfortable as possible. They are available whenever and wherever you may need them. When we say no issue of it being too big or too small, we mean it.
We know you will be pulled to the beach, but the resort offers so many amazing amenities that you will have to check out. They offer fine and casual dining with eleven food and beverage outlets. Live entertainment is offered at the Sharktooth Tavern, so you can enjoy dinner and a show. For water options, there are five heated pools, a poolside bar, hot tubs, and a children’s pool. Imagine the anxiety rolling off your body as you take a dip in one of those hot tubs. Close your eyes and let the heat take you into a state of utter bliss. For added relaxation, there is a spa and massage therapy on-site for you to explore.
If you want to get out there and get active, there are so many options to get moving. Enjoy a rewarding sweat at the fitness center. With treadmills, free weights, and lots of mat space, you are sure to get into a good workout. Challenge someone to a game of tennis or beach volleyball and see who comes out on top. While we don’t think it’s likely, if the weather is poor, join us in the game room for some fun with some of the other vacationers.

St. Petersburg or Bust!
When we say this beachside city is fun, we really mean it. It’s not just the place where you get a good tan, it is also the place where you experience new things in new places. The sights you will see in this city are second to none. Just imagine watching the orange and pink sunrise in the morning as the water is calm. The waves are slowly rushing onto the sand and the world is coming to life right before you.
At Tradewinds Island Grand, we invite you to try some watersports you may not have experienced before. Try the JetSki or the Waverunner and feel yourself glide through the waves. Get up on the paddle board and navigate through the waters. The best thing about paddle boarding is you can go at your own pace and control it by yourself. Paddle boats are also available to get you active in the water. For the adrenaline junkie, see the water at new heights with the water-propelled jet pack. You will be attacked by a jetpack and shoot up high into the air where your crew at the beach can see you.
This resort offers plenty of opportunities for adult diversions and an extensive calendar of family activities. We highly recommend checking out something new every single day to really get a good feel for the resort.
