Florida's Hammock Beach Resort relaunches boutique lodge

Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, Fla.

Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, Fla., which overlooks 2 miles of Atlantic shoreline, is relaunching its boutique hotel experience, The Lodge at Hammock Beach, on July 1. The updated accommodation option has 20 guestrooms with unobstructed views, direct beach access and oceanfront dining at the newly-reopened Atlantic Grille restaurant.

Located within the Hammock Beach Resort, Lodge guests can choose from one of three styles of upgraded rooms – each adorned with coastal design décor, a private balcony overlooking the ocean, a marble entry and a bathroom with granite vanities, walk-in shower and large garden tub. In addition, Lodge guests can enjoy a tranquil and exclusive oceanfront pool with service from the Atlantic Grille.

Guests are invited to delve into “The Lodge Experience” – which includes a personal, VIP greeting by a Lodge host with a Champagne toast, $25 daily dining credit to be used at any of the six dining options on property, daily chef-selected breakfast items such as fresh fruits and other snacks, daily coffee in the welcoming foyer from 6-10 a.m. and a nightly turndown service with amenity and complimentary bottled water.

The Lodge is also home to the resort’s Atlantic Grille, led by new executive chef Kevin Luque. The Lodge also includes a new dining concept: The Tapas Room, which has a small plate-sharing menu inspired by flavors of Asia, Europe and the Americas, and a wine-by-the-glass list tailored to local flavors.

“We’re thrilled to unveil this reimagined experience at The Lodge,” Terry Bechtold, resort managing director at the property, said in a statement. “In addition to fresh accommodations and stunning views, our guests can also enjoy new and refreshed culinary choices.”       

The debut of the new Lodge Experience follows enhancements at Hammock Beach Resort, which is managed by Salamander Hotels & Resorts. The resort recently refurbished its grand lobby to now have new flooring, contemporary furniture and lighting and a new sushi bar. It also upgraded 75 of its one-bedroom suites, including installation of new carpet, furniture, updated artwork, flat-panel televisions and reconstructed kitchenettes. All 15,000 square feet of Hammock Beach’s indoor meeting and event space were also updated with new carpet, wall coverings and lighting. In addition, the resort has refreshed the décor in its Delfinos Italian restaurant and updated the interior design in its Loggerheads Lounge.

This fall, the resort will also re-open the Jack Nicklaus Signature Design Ocean Course after a complete restoration. Known med for its six Atlantic Ocean-hugging holes and thrilling closing stretch named “The Bear Claw,” the course has had all of its fairways, greens and rough regrassed with the salt-tolerant Platinum Paspalum, while each tee box, bunker and green complex has been reconstructed.
