The Patel Family of Fort Myers, Florida has purchased the Boca Grande Resort on Gasparilla Island for $3.6 million. Operating as Boca Grande Resort Inn, LLC, the Patel Family, who also own Captain Jack’s Airboat Tours, Wooten’s Everglades Airboat Tours, in addition to several other hotel properties located in Florida, recently closed on the 18-unit resort. The acquisition encompassed Boca Grande Resort’s two on-site dining venues, and a variety of retail locations, including a bank building, Kappy’s Market, the island’s only grocery store, a salon and spa, and multiple other tenants. The island is situated on the Southwestern coast of Florida, nestled by Charlotte Harbor, Gasparilla Sound and the Gulf of Mexico, and Boca Grande Resort is the island’s largest property parcel.
The Boca Grande Resort offers 18 guest accommodations including singles with king-size beds, doubles with two queen beds and full-size suites with two rooms offering a king bed and two single-sized beds. All rooms have private bathrooms, a mini-fridge, microwave and access to the heated swimming pool. Located on approximately three acres, Boca Grande Resort is a vacation destination for families, couples, individuals and business professionals and serves as a venue for resort-style weddings and special events.
Boca Grande Resort Inn, LLC, will continue offering the full-service resort amenities and services that are currently available to guests, and the group is assessing future updates and amenities to be established at the property, including the potential for a new restaurant.
“Boca Grande Resort is a hidden gem on one of the most beautiful barrier islands along Florida’s Gulf Coast, and we are excited about the potential that this property has for enhancing the guest experience including the addition of new dining and resort activities,” said Aashish Patel, owner of Boca Grande Resort Inn. “The resort is convenient to so many historical points of interest including the Lighthouse Museum, and is in walking or biking distance to fishing, golfing and water sports and adventures as well as dining, arts and other cultural destinations.”
