Refreshing After Hurricane Ian

Reimagining the Resort Experience

In September of 2022, Hurricane Ian swept through the coast of Florida. Many areas of the resort were damaged, and WannaB Inn was forced to close its doors. After the storm passed, we evaluated the damage and took this opportunity to refresh areas that needed improvement.

We reopened our doors in 2023 as Manasota Key Resort, with a reimagined resort experience. As we grow, we aim to respect the original character of the resort and protect the natural sanctuary that is home to native species. Guest rooms were transformed to blend coastal influences with local artwork and modern amenities. Amenities were added in harmony with the natural environment of the island.

We are excited to welcome guests back to the resort to make new memories.
