BOB WALTER Managing Director

Dear Friends, Welcome to the Spring and Summer issue of Island Vibes. If you haven’t yet visited our 330-acre paradise, please allow the Island Vibes newsletter to acquaint you with all South Seas Island Resort has to offer. If you’re a return guest, you’ll learn all about our Spring and Summer activities and happenings. This issue of Island Vibes is all about family. Throughout the year we welcome families from all over the world, and this time of year we enjoy watching families create lasting spring and summer vacation memories. Following a winter that was abnormally cold throughout much of the U.S., I’m happy to say that seasonal temperatures average 84 degrees! Consider our resort your ultimate playground with endless backdrops; the turquoise sea, white sand beaches, lush greenery and, of course, swoon-worthy sunsets. Whether laying by the beach, dipping your toes in the sparkling Gulf of Mexico or enjoying a more active vacation filled with tennis, waverunners, kayaking or bicycling, South Seas Island Resort offers something for everyone to enjoy. Lounge in a private poolside cabana while watching your little ones splash around, or enroll them in Sanibel Sea School for an ocean discovery learning experience. Play a round of golf on our picturesque, 9-hole Captiva Course, which boasts a water view from each hole, and when you need to recharge, visit us for food and libations at our many restaurants and bars. And for the ultimate resort experience, make sure you join us for our nightly, complimentary Sunset SHELLebration, where guests enjoy live music and tropical drinks and where kids can “make a wish upon a shell” as the sun dips into the Gulf. I hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you to South Seas Island Resort in the coming weeks and months. Rest assured that my staff will be “all hands on deck” to take care of your every need, ensuring you a memorable vacation. And remember, every summer has a story, what will yours be? Just Escape... Warmest Regards, Bob Walter
