Currently in the middle of a $20-million rebuild and rebranding, the Holiday Inn Resort at Jekyll Island launched phase two of construction with the announcement of three new food and beverage concepts. The new signature restaurant Beach House, The Rusty Anchor Bar and Grille and a Starbucks will be opening in the new resort. The resort is scheduled for completion this November 2014, with all food and beverage outlets coming online by February 2015.
For this development, the company is starting from the ground up, with existing structures completely demolished to make way for new restaurants and new accommodations.
Construction already started on a new oceanfront restaurant that will take its direction and design inspiration from the shore and ocean view setting. Under the direction of long time Jekyll restaurateur Luke Kelly, Beach House, the resort’s signature restaurant will have design accents including nautical rope, oyster shells, driftwood and a seaside vibe. The Tap Room at Beach House will offer 24 draft beers, including an array of craft brews. Beach House will also be available to host private parties and dining events.
The Rusty Anchor Bar and Grille is another addition to the hotel, with a pool-side location.
Meanwhile, Holiday Inn Resort at Jekyll Island lined up Starbucks on the top floor. The Starbucks location has a balcony overlooking the ocean. Additionally, this location will serve adult beverages in the evenings.
NorthPointe Hospitailty Management is working in concert with property owner Georgia Coast Holdings, which is overseeing the $20-million ground-up rebuild of The Holiday Inn Resort at Jekyll Island. Upon completion, the new Holiday Inn Resort at Jekyll Island will have 157 guestrooms including 21 suites, an outdoor pool, Kids Club and Activity Center, KidSuite rooms, a fitness center with a view and a business center.
