Our crystal river hotel is a beautiful 50-year-old, 232 acre eco-friendly resort offering comfortable accommodations, a full service spa, and is surrounded by the natural springs of Kings Bay. This bay in Crystal River is one of the largest aquifers in the state and home to more than 400 West Indian manatees that migrate each year to the warmth of the springs.  Our onsite activities range from golf to boating and fishing with so much in-between and we offer several specials and packages to help sculpt your perfect vacation!  

Packed with all the comforts of home, our resort suites and guestrooms have everything you need for a perfect stay. Choose from our patio rooms, with unique outdoor lounging areas, or our rooms with views of the garden or water. No matter what room you choose, you won’t be disappointed because we fill them all with excellent amenities for you and your family.

At Plantation on Crystal River, you’ll find an exclusive Central Florida golf resort featuring 27 holes of competitive and challenging golf originally designed by highly regarded course architect Mark Mahannah over 50 years ago. He created a rewarding course in the traditional “Florida” style with variety of water and bunker obstacles, along with challenging fairways lined by mature emerald pine and oak trees native to the region.

With 12,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space in Crystal River, we have space for your meeting needs. Whether you are planning a major presentation, business conference, family reunion, or wedding reception, we have more than enough Crystal River meeting and event space to accommodate your particular event. Each of our rooms has specific dimensions, providing you with several options for your individual group and events in Central Florida.

It’s always time for fishing in The Gulf of Mexico and on beautiful King’s Bay! Few places compare to Crystal River when it comes to salt or freshwater sport fishing, just as no other area hotel or resort compares to the comfort and outfitting you receive at Plantation on Crystal River. There really isn’t a better place to cast out your lines to fish for an inshore slam of tarpon, redfish, and speckled trout. Offshore opportunities include grouper, a variety of snapper, smoker kingfish, and cobia. Pick the time of year and there will be a fishing season to enjoy with us!

If freshwater fishing is more your interest, our area has multiple lakes and reservoirs within short distances that provide excellent fishing for largemouth bass, crappie, bream, catfish, and more. We can also arrange a charter with one of our area’s fishing guides that will pick you up from our own dock for charters. And make sure to bring your catch back to our resort so the chef of our West 82º Grill can cook it for you! 

There’s always something fun to do at Plantation on Crystal River!
