Palm Island Resort At Palm Island, the cry of gulls and the smell of salt air are the only distractions.
Set on a private stretch of pristine beach on Knights Island, Palm Island Resort is located half way between Sarasota and Fort Myers on Florida's Gulf Coast. It is a five-minute ferry ride from the mainland, but feels like a private retreat. Guests stay in cottage-style villas with four oversized apartments and screened-in sun porches. The Clubhouse has 900 square feet of meeting space and there are heated swimming pools and well-kept tennis courts. Several golf courses are located nearby. GTE and Hewlett Packard are among several companies that come back here for meetings on a regular basis.
