The 598-key Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa
DESTIN, Fla. (Feb. 25, 2013) – With a long-standing tradition of providing award-winning facilities, deluxe accommodations, impeccable service and luxury resort amenities, the 598-room Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa is one of the South’s preferred beachfront meeting destinations. Building on that grand tradition, the resort has raised the bar with the completion of a $5 million renovation involving its meeting space, accommodations and fine-dining restaurant.
The largest full-service beachfront resort on Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, the Hilton Sandestin Beach boasts more than 32,000 square feet of flexible indoor meeting space that now features a fresh new design inspired by the resort’s beachfront setting. Natural stones and tiles, a casually sophisticated palette of indigos and sand dollar whites, modern lighting, and cheerful accents combine to create an air of relaxed Florida charm throughout the resort’s two ballrooms, breakout space, intimate boardroom and pre-function areas. The 9,504-square-foot Emerald Ballroom, 5,600-square-foot Coral Ballroom, 20 breakout rooms and pre-function space have all been enhanced with an array of new light fixtures, custom Kinon finished pilasters, Axminster carpet, wall treatments and fresh paint. The renovation also incorporated state-of the-art technology into new teleconferencing facilities in the boardroom and touch screen lighting in the ballrooms.
The award-winning Seagar’s Prime Steaks and Seafood – Destin’s only restaurant distinguished with the AAA Four Diamond Award rating – has also received a facelift, blending its tradition of excellence in culinary creativity and service with a sophisticated new décor. Best known for its USDA prime steaks and seafood, the 150-seat restaurant’s new interior color palette features coastal soft blues, greens, platinum and sandy hues, set in striking contrast to traditional Brazilian cherry and mahogany accents.
Other new design details include a unique fire-and-water element serving as a dramatic welcoming focal point, renovated lounge and a new semiprivate dining room created to showcase Seagar’s award-winning 600 label-wine list.
Updates have also been made to the common space of the 400-room Emerald Tower, which houses the deluxe junior suites featuring bunk beds and a separate state-of-the-art media centers for kids. All rooms in the Emerald Tower include balconies with partial- or full-gulf view, as well as a microwave, refrigerator, sitting area with sleeper sofa, premium cable TV, and Lodgenet™ movies and video games.
Set against a beautiful backdrop of the sugar-white sand and emerald-green water and an ideal location for any event, Hilton Sandestin Beach has received top honors from some of the country’s most prestigious meetings publications including Meetings & Conventions, Corporate & Incentive Travel, ConventionSouth, MeetingsSouth and Successful Meetings. The resort masterfully accommodates groups from 10 to more than 2,000 with a combination of luxury resort amenities, deluxe accommodations, award-winning meeting facilities, fabulous beachfront setting and professional staff – all under one roof.
