About Us

The Historical Safety Harbor Resort and Spa

Since it was founded in 1925, it has been known as a unique place “where healing waters flow” ™. Centrally located on the west coast of Florida and nestled on 33 acres on the west shore of Tampa Bay, our Resort anchors the city of Safety Harbor from which the city found its beginnings and was subsequently named. 

In 1539 Hernando Desoto reached the shores of Old Tampa Bay and discovered the natural springs (later named “Espiritu Santo Springs") believing he had found the legendary “Fountain of Youth” missed by Ponce De Leon.

  In 1964 the U.S. Department of the Interior recognized and designated the Safety Harbor Resort and Spa a Historical Landmark and in 1997 it became a Florida Heritage Landmark. 

Boasting 174 spacious guest rooms, a 50,000 sq. ft. Spa and Fitness center and over 30,000 sq. ft. of Convention and Meeting space, Safety Harbor Spa remains one of the most comprehensive spa and fitness centers in the country.

Our 50,000 Sq. Ft. Spa features 30 newly renovated treatment rooms including men and women’s bath and shower facilities. Featuring Kerstin Florian Signature treatments and products, extensive exercise facilities and specialized wellness programs, a truly rejuvenating and revitalizing mind and body experience awaits you. Built on the site of the natural mineral springs believed to restore youth and vitality, our spa treatments and three swimming pools use the healing powers of the water to help you achieve your own personal serenity. Discover why Spa Finder Magazine has consistently named the Safety Harbor Spa among their top ten U.S. spas year over year. 

Our Meeting and Conference facilities offer an "out of the box" destination for your next meeting. With 30,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting and convention space, including outdoor venues with spectacular views of Tampa Bay and the city lights of Tampa, Safety Harbor Resort and Spa can accommodate groups from 10 to 1,000 guests.
