The Christmas Season is upon us, and there is not a better way to find the spirit of the season than with a pre-Christmas visit to glorious Sanibel Island, especially to unwind with us at Sanibel Arms West. With our tropical oasis of luxury surrounding you, a private beach on which to explore and discover the 250+ kinds of seashells, and our relaxing screened in pool to ease away the year’s woes, what’s not to love.  Visit now and take advantage of our pre-holiday special available for a limited time.  It’s here for you and just in time to come enjoy the magical hope and festive spirit of the 31st Annual Luminary Festival Weekend on Sanibel & Captiva.

This year’s Luminary weekend starts on Sanibel on Friday, December 4th, as the island transforms into an enchanted wonderland with candles glittering from one end of the island to the other, with holiday light displays and festive decorations adding their own amazement and awe.  We invite you to make your plans now to come stay with us and to join with the many visitors and locals as we take the time to reconnect in humanity and spirituality with the peace of Christmas.  You and your family can enjoy complimentary trolley service to take you to our eclectic array of shopping centers, the island galleries and many businesses that dot the sparkling trail.  Refreshments, holiday activities and music are all available and fun for the whole family. Santa plans to be here, taking photos with all the good boys and girls.  A live Nativity display will give everyone an opportunity to pause and reflect on the heart of the season.


On Saturday, December 5th, you can journey over to our neighboring Island of Captiva ~ where the magical luminary experience continues to enchant with live bands playing, candles sparkling, and the spirit of the season washing over all to renew spirits and cleanse away the woes of the months gone by….. Merry Christmas!
