In 2024, South Seas continues its phased reopening with new food & beverage outlets, additional accommodations, and enhanced resort amenities.
Item 1

A Welcome Return

South Seas is delighted to welcome guests back to our white-sand shores.

Upon your first visit back to our property, you may notice South Seas looks a little different. While select areas of the resort remain under construction and some amenities may be more limited than you are accustomed to, we continue to make significant progress in our recovery and rebuilding efforts. We began accepting reservations for select Homes of Distinction and Villas in the summer of 2023, marking an important milestone in our work towards rebuilding from the devastation of Hurricane Ian in 2022. Additional accommodations will continue to become available, increasing considerably in the spring of 2024.

Guests have access to our two-and-a-half glorious miles of pristine white-sand beaches where you can take in our famous sunsets, world-renowned shelling, and incredible natural wildlife. From bicycling and walking the shoreline, to simply relaxing and enjoying time with friends and family, new experiences and fond memories await.

Services & Amenities

Select areas of the resort remain under construction and some amenities will be limited or modified while we continue to progress in our rebuilding efforts. Please see below for an up-to-date list of available services and amenities. Housekeeping is offered on departure only.

Guest Safety

To ensure the safety and well-being of our guests, please be aware the resort is currently undergoing significant construction and improvements to further restore and add new amenity spaces.

During your stay, you may encounter heavy equipment moving along the roadways and association parking lots, and near private homes and villa drives. Some of the machinery sits at a considerable height from the ground, which may obstruct the operator’s line of vision. For your safety, we kindly request that if you are driving, please adhere to the posted speed limits and come to a complete stop at stop signs. For those who are biking, walking, or jogging, please remain vigilant and aware of your surroundings.

To ensure your safety throughout the property, we have erected protective barriers around areas that are currently under construction. Even if there is no visible sign of construction, certain areas have been cordoned off due to potential hazards.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we work towards enhancing your South Seas experience. We look forward to creating unforgettable memories with you.

Restore Our Shores, Better Than Before Note: Future amenity renderings are conceptual and subject to change during development. Actual amenities may differ due to regulatory requirements and practical constraints. The development team reserves the right to modify the designs without prior notice. Please refer to the final approved plans for accurate details.

Sunset Beach
Iconic Sunset Beach is open with beach chair and umbrella services from 10 AM - sunset. Indulge in casual beachfront dining at the Shell City Burger food truck and in late 2024, the new Beach House, with increased services for an elevated dining experience, will welcome guests.
The Shops at South Seas
We are excited about a multitude of new updates to The Shops, including Starbucks Coffee with a planned future expansion; the relocation of Guest Reception; a reimagining of Provisions; and the Sanibel & Captiva Properties Real Estate Office. Upscale retailers are soon to join the space for an elevated shopping experience.
Eco Focus
As the reimagined resort continues to unfold, South Seas privately funded a Resiliency Study in September 2022, conducted to provide recommendations to improve the future resiliency of all of Captiva Island. The study focused on stormwater, wastewater, sea-level rise, and increasing storm intensity, with a comprehensive plan to address all environmental issues. Those findings can be read here.
Captiva Landing
A vibrant array of all-new amenities and attractions will be located at the south area of the resort. Captiva Landing will feature a new water play area with tipping buckets and slides, a meandering lazy river, secluded pool, vintage arcade, kids club, and casual food and beverage offerings.
Scoops & Slices
Our family favorite will be reimagined in its new location at the previous Skullywags Kids Camp. We look forward to welcoming guests mid-2024 for pizza, ice cream, and sweet treats.

Schedule Your Visit

Go ahead, make yourself at home. Choose a more traditional vacation condo setting in a convenient location, or opt for a more secluded experience and live like a local with an authentic, Floridian stay in a private home. Beach lovers will appreciate our beach villas and cottages, steps from the water. Dreamy views of the turquoise blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico? We’ve got a place for that, too.
