DESTIN, Fla.—The 598-room Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa announced the completion of a $5 million renovation involving its meeting space, accommodations, and fine-dining restaurant.
The hotel offers 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 palette of indigos and sand dollar whites, modern lighting accent the resort’s two ballrooms, breakout space, 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 technology upgrades in the new teleconferencing facilities in the boardroom and touch screen lighting in the ballrooms.
Seagar’s Prime Steaks and Seafood, the hotel restaurant, also received a facelift with new décor. The 150-seat space was updated with a new color palette of blues, greens, platinum, and sandy hues, set in contrast to Brazilian cherry and mahogany accents. Other new design details include a unique fire-and-water element, renovated lounge, and a new semiprivate dining room.
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 separate media centers for kids. All rooms in the Emerald Tower include balconies, a microwave, refrigerator, sitting area with sleeper sofa, and premium cable TV.
