Northwest Florida’s iconic resort launches first stage of a multi-phased property-wide refurbishment

SOUTH WALTON, Florida – September 6, 2023 – Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, an all-encompassing resort located along Northwest Florida’s emerald coast, has announced a $35M property refresh. Comprised of three separate phases, the renovations kicked off with a complete room redesign, set to be completed and available for bookings later this year. The hotel’s full property-wide renovation is set to conclude prior to spring break of 2024.

“Our team recognizes the importance of enhancing our property and onsite amenities to reflect current trends and guest expectations,” said Angelina Covington, general manager of Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa. “Updating the look and feel of the resort while continuing to provide the same great services and accommodations we have gained the reputation of providing for almost forty years, will further elevate the Hilton Sandestin Beach experience.”

The renovations began with an overhaul of the different room categories to offer visitors a coastal beachfront home-away-from-home. The first stage in this two-year refresh started in the winter of 2022, the new accommodations will enhance stays for guests of all ages with a bunkbed enclave, making family getaways more comfortable and accessible. Advanced features such as motion-censored lighting underneath beds, upgraded charging stations throughout the room or suite, and elevated vanity stations with deluxe lighting have been implemented to create a more enjoyable stay.

Building upon the resort’s already tranquil aesthetic, the remodel enriches the brightness in each guest room with a warmer set of blues and crisp white for contrast. The 590 total rooms and suites are modified by floor and spaced out during the different renovation stages across each of the hotel’s two towers, Emerald and Spa, to avoid disruption for guests.

A revamping of the six on-site dining outlets, three swimming pools, beachfront deck space, full-service Serenity by the sea Spa, main public spaces, and more will take place in the second and third phases of the resort’s renovations.

Hilton Sandestin Beach holds a long-standing reputation for creating memorable stays for guests of all ages. Drawing in many travelers for repeat visits in addition to providing unique dining and spa experiences for those living in the surrounding community, the resort looks forward to further surpassing expectations with the complete property refresh.
