Perfect wedding day!!!

I wish I could give them more than 5 stars! From start to finish, Safety Harbor Resort and Spa made our wedding dreams come true. Maria and Jessica are amazing at what they do. They are prompt, knowledgeable and beyond helpful. Maria was the most amazing on our special day keeping me calm and up to date with weather updates. We got married on the outside terrace overlooking Tampa Bay. The weather was perfect and the venue was breathtaking. The service is spectacular. My guests said it was the best wedding food they have every had. The bartenders made amazing drinks and people did not had to wait. The day started and ended perfectly, I am beyond happy with my experience. If you are looking for a wedding venue in the Tampa Bay area, this is it!!! No need to look further. You won鈥檛 regret it!!!!

Maria and Safety Harbor Resort & Spa for the win!

I was a guest for a wedding event at Safety Harbor Resort & Spa on March 26th 2023 where Maria Savakis Touloumis was the coordinator. She performed all the organization and execution from the ceremony to the couples send off.
She did a superb job choreographing everything so the event was absolutely first class.
Safety Harbor is a delightful resort for a wedding event as I was comfortable, well fed and thoroughly enjoyed my stay on this magnificent property.
I highly recommend Maria and Safety Harbor Resort & Spa if you are looking for a first class vendor team.

Bridal Shower Spa Day

I had my daughters Bridal Shower at the resort, some of our group went for spa treatments and some of us just wanted to enjoy the spa amenities. We had a wonderful lunch in the Tranquil Garden, absolutely gorgeous. We all felt like Royalty. The spa employees all knew the group we were with and went out of their way to make our day fantastic, no matter what we were doing. The food was above and beyond and the Apple Cobbler for dessert was the best anyone ever tasted. The spa itself is steeped in history and is so beautiful. I would recommend this to anyone hosting a special event. We were a small group but treated like we took over the whole spa. I cant thank the staff enough for making our day special

The Safety Harbor Spa has been a very popular location for many of the most beautiful weddings we have done over the years! They are well organized, always have a backup plan (FL weather), and always make their brides a priority. Their ballrooms and outdoor spaces are equally gorgeous every time we put our flowers in an event there! Easy to work with!
