AMELIA ISLAND, Fla.—The Omni Amelia Island Plantation announced the completion of its extensive $85 million renovation. The 16-month project marks the newest chapter in the resort’s 40-year heritage.
Completed March 5, the re-imagined resort presents an entirely new arrival sequence, allowing guests to interact with the water immediately upon setting foot in the lobby. The elevated porte cochere and floor-to-ceiling windows overlook fire and water features and the Atlantic Ocean. The lobby is located in the new Oceanside wing, which features 155 new rooms, while the rejuvenated Sunrise wing features 249 rooms. Of the 27 suites, most notable are the Infiniti Suites, which occupy the farthest edge of Oceanside and offer wrap-around porches.
Directly off the hotel lobby, the new outdoor area offers a large pool deck with lounge seating, three fire features, additional food and beverage services, and expanded changing facilities. The tiered poolscape includes the Serenity Pool, an adult, infinity-edge pool; the family-friendly Splash Pool; Splash Park, a water playground perfect for toddlers and small children; and two hot tubs.
Omni Amelia Island Plantation now features more than 80,000 square feet of function space in the onsite conference center and across the 1,350-acre property to accommodate meetings, banquets, weddings, social events, and conferences of up to 1,800 attendees. The new space includes the 16,800 square-foot Magnolia Ballroom, as well as the 11,165 square-foot Amelia Ballroom and the 5,465 square-foot Cumberland Ballroom. Pre-function and exhibit space and 37 breakout rooms complete the new conference center, while the Magnolia Garden, located just outside, features 11,000 square feet of lawn.
The property’s spa offers 16 treatment rooms that include two new couples treatment rooms as well as 14 single rooms and a rejuvenated relaxation area. The luxury wellness spa facility features relaxing couple massages, facials, steam showers, as well as haircuts, styling, make up application and yoga classes.
Among all the upgraded amenities, the roads and walkways have also been redesigned for improved traffic flow and enhanced pedestrian connectivity. Parking is also improved with an all-new, three-story structure providing 540 additional spaces and 70 new valet spots.
