The peninsula Inn & Spa has been many things throughout its history. Current owners, Jim and Alexandra Kingzett, completely renovated the property in 2002 creating the beautiful Inn we see today.

It was originally built as a hotel in 1905. It was called The Bay View Hotel and at that time was waterfront property. During World War II, it became a veteran's hospital. (An elevator was installed at that time that was large enough to fit a gurney. This elevator is still in use today.) After the war, it became a convalescent center and then later a nursing home. Afterwards it was used as a studio for local artists for a few years. Then the building was boarded up for 15 years until the Kingzett's lovingly restored it.

Each room is unique with its own theme and design representing a different country and culture. There are eleven suites on the second and third floors.

The first floor houses fine dining at Six Tables, relaxing spa at Seven Springs, and elegant cocktail lounge at Palm Terrace.  Start off with a pampering at the Seven Springs Restoration Spa (inspired by the fabled seven healing springs of nearby Boca Ciega Bay). Get a rejuvenating massage or maybe you would prefer a relaxing facial. There are several packages to choose from. After that make a reservation to enjoy dinner at Six Tables. Their renowned chef will tempt your senses with an elaborate six course menu. This restaurant ranks as one of the state's top restaurants according to Florida Trend Magazine and one of 12 exceptional Florida restaurants according to Gourmet Magazine. After dinner retire to the Palm Terrace for coffee and liquors.  This elegant cocktail lounge includes the Governor's Room (for intimate conversation and piano), the Verandah (shaded comfort to relax outside) and the Alcove Deck( under the stars in the twinkle of the lighted Mandalay Globe tree). There is also a selection of fine cigars offered for your outdoor smoking enjoyment.

The Peninsula also provides an intimate setting for your wedding, corporate meeting, or private party. There are many packages to make your wedding or event special. This can include Spa services for the bridal party (or business group), rooms for out of town guests, one or more dinner functions, as well as room for 75 guests. Many options are offered for the location of your event including the Verandah, the Lawn, the Chapel, or the Alcove Deck.
