Why Stay At The Shores
Tucked in a quiet neighborhood just nine miles from Florida's Daytona airport, the beachfront Shores Resort and Spa offers spectacular views of the Atlantic, plus a stellar 2,500-square-foot spa for pampering.
For an area often associated with enthusiastic car racing fans and boisterous spring breakers, this 2005 retreat is an unexpected oasis. Located on a peaceful, uncrowded stretch of beach in a residential area four miles south of the Daytona Beach Boardwalk, the resort is an ideal choice for a romantic getaway (thanks to a poolside fire pit, couples massages, and a location that's ideal for a sunset stroll on the beach) but caters to families too, with a complimentary kids' club and a special children's dinner with arts and crafts on Saturday nights. Even pets are well cared for, thanks to a stash of dog bowls, beds, and organic biscuits. For a break from the sunshine and views, opt for a Hot Bamboo Massage in the hotel's Indulge Spa—just be sure to book your treatment in advance, since the spa, which uses Sonya Dakar's pure-botanical products, is as popular with locals as with guests. Those who'd prefer an adrenaline rush can head to Daytona's famous International Speedway, just a 10-minute drive away.
For a romantic evening, reserve a poolside cabana and enjoy a special dinner menu, which you can customize in advance with the chef. Be sure to order stone-roasted black grouper with smoked corn butter sauce, one of the specialties at the Azure Restaurant.
Order cocktails at Peck Plaza, a condominium tower next door to the hotel: although the building looks anonymous (and dated) from the outside, the 29th-floor restaurant is worth a trip for its expansive view of the beach and the Halifax River.
