From mid-size rooms to larger halls to a Chickee Hut that provides a unique outdoor setting with a Southwest Florida feel, our waterfront location showcases everything that is special about Sarasota and her islands.

Each year, millions of visitors travel to Sarasota to enjoy its beautiful beaches and fascinating marine life. Mote is one of Sarasota’s premier attractions, hosting more than 300,000 visitors each year. Our venues offer you and your guests a departure from the ordinary with spectacular animal exhibits and breathtaking views. At Mote, you can have cocktails at the reef, dinner among the sharks, luaus at a tiki hut and rooms with great views. Mote venues are available each day of the week, including weekends. Proceeds generated from rentals support Mote research and public education efforts.
