Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa completes upgrades

Hilton Hotels & Resorts has announced that the renovation of the 598-room Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, considered one of the Florida’s preferred beachfront meeting destinations, has been completed. The resort has finished a $5-million renovation involving its meeting space, accommodations and fine-dining restaurant.

The largest 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 said to have been inspired by the resort’s beachfront setting. Features in the resort’s two ballrooms, breakout space, intimate boardroom and pre-function areas include natural stones and tiles, a palette of indigos and sand dollar whites, modern lighting, and accents. 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 new light fixtures, custom Kinon finished pilasters, Axminster carpet, wall treatments and fresh paint. The renovation also incorporated technology into new teleconferencing facilities in the boardroom, and touch screen lighting in the ballrooms.

Hilton Sandestin Beach received honors from some of the country’s meetings publications. The resort accommodates groups from 10 to more than 2,000 with a combination of luxury resort amenities, deluxe accommodations, meeting facilities, beachfront setting and professional staff.


The Seagar’s Prime Steaks and Seafood is Destin’s only restaurant with the AAA Four Diamond Award rating. The 150-seat restaurant’s new interior color palette features soft blues, greens, platinum and sandy hues, set in contrast to Brazilian cherry and mahogany accents. Other new design details include a fire-and-water element serving as a welcoming focal point, 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 a separate 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, cable TV, and Lodgenet movies and video games.
