Rooms & Rates
Just a quick hour-and-a-half drive from Tampa, the Plantation Resort is tucked away on Florida's beautiful Crystal River. The inviting plantation-style resort is set on 232 acres and surrounded by the natural springs of Kings Bay, home to 50 resident manatees.
Guests can tee up at the resort's championship golf course or swim and snorkel with the manatees on tours leaving from the resort's own marina. The property serves as a great base for guests to take part in other local activities such as fishing, boating, kayaking and diving. For a more relaxed stay, guests can book a treatment at the on-site Aveda brand spa or lounge at the Plantation Tiki bar overlooking the resort's massive lagoon pool.
Smart renovations have preserved this historic property, with simple but charming rooms that can accommodate up to four guests. The resort's four restaurants offer true Southern hospitality and on-site convenience. Other area attractions include the Crystal River Archaeological State Park and the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park.
Travelzoo Tip: The manatee season is from November-April.
