The Winter Intensive will be hosted at the world-class Sirata Beach Resort.
Advance hotel registration is highly recommended. The special Sirata room rate of $124/night (plus taxes) cannot be guaranteed
past November 1st, We have been able to extend the hotel discounts through December 1st! (We strongly encourage you to make a reservation in advance.) These specially negotiated rates are also available 3 days after the event if you want to stay over for a few days. Because of the New Year’s Eve holiday, the discount rate is $194/night if you wish to reserve during the days before camp. (Believe it or not, this is still a significant discount, even though it is higher than during the week!) To reserve a room now, call 1-800-344-5999 and mention “ASU Aikido Winter Intensive”.
Keep in mind, the hotel rooms can be comfortably shared by up to four people (two queen beds). Or, for an upcharge of $20/night you can request a studio; for an additional $30/night you can request a suite which has a living room and a mini-kitchen.
Here are some photos of the hotel property:
For those interested, an inexpensive lodging alternative is the Fort Desoto Park. Fort Desoto offers some of the most beautiful beaches in Florida, and is only about a 10 minute drive from the Sirata. Campsites can be booked online, and are available for about $30/ night. Availability fills up quickly, so book well in advance if you are interested.
