Acclaimed Vero Beach Artist Steve Diossy Announces Collaboration with Iconic St. Pete Beach Hotel


Funky fish frescos have sprung up along St. Pete Beach’s Gulf Boulevard recently – the marine murals coming courtesy of Vero Beach artist Steve Diossy as he and Plaza Beach Resorts launch their new venture with a ribbon cutting on August 23rd.

A professional artist for over 25 years and a mainstay at major boat shows throughout the US, Diossy has had his flagship gallery on Vero Beach’s Ocean Drive since 2020. Now he has added a new string to his bow - working with St. Pete Beach’s Plaza Beach Resorts to transform two of the group’s properties (Bayview Plaza and Bay Palms Waterfront Resorts) into the Steve Diossy Marine Art Inspired Hotel. Each of the resorts’ 26 rooms and suites are decorated with the artist’s unique take on the Florida lifestyle. “Seeing the vision for the resort become a reality has been such a fun process. It’s an exciting new venture and I’m very grateful to the team at Plaza Beach Resorts for their support.”Diossy says of the project.


In the works - The Bayview Plaza Concept Plan

Robert Czyszczon, General manager of Plaza Beach Resorts, explained how the collaboration came about: “I had seen Steve’s art in restaurants and his gallery in Vero Beach in 2020, and when I saw his booth at the St. Pete Boat Show in 2022, it hit me that it would be a great theme for our hotels. Steve and his team loved the idea, and the rest is history. We are excited to welcome guests and locals to walk through the rooms and enjoy the lifelike art that Steve creates.”
