The Shores Resort and Spa

2637 S. Atlantic Ave.
Daytona Beach Shores, FL, United States
TEL: (386) 767-7350
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.

Room to Book:

Room 617: the hotel’s highest terrace room features a 500-square-foot wraparound terrace with panoramic views that are particularly striking at night, with the lights of the Ponce de Leon lighthouse—Florida’s tallest at 175 feet—glimmering in the distance.

Insider Tip:

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.
