Florida Ritz-Carlton updates guestrooms

In northeast Florida, the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island celebrated its 30th anniversary with a full renovation of its guestrooms and suites as well as the meeting and event spaces.

The new guestroom design by Wimberly Interiors was inspired by the natural surroundings of the area’s sea and skies , reflected in the hues, patterns and textures. The palette is grounded in the neutral tones of the land and accented with the colors of the sand, sea, Spanish moss and live oaks.

Another showpiece of the design are multiple large-scale custom panoramic photographic artworks by Jorge de la Torriente, who captures the connectivity of the Low Country sky to the sea during different times of the day. Local artisan crafts, such as the sweetgrass baskets, are captured and used as woven textures in the furniture and rugs and accented patterns throughout the design. Nautical and treasure-inspired details celebrate the islands history and location with metal tones and accents in public and private areas.

The resort’s 446 resort guestrooms and suites are also getting smart TVs, bedside charging stations and newly redesigned living areas. Guestroom bathrooms have also received an overhaul complete with dual vanities, enlarged showers and suites with free-standing bathtubs.

The three specialty suites located on the eighth floor—the Amelia Suite, the Atlantic Suite and The Ritz-Carlton Suite—will get elevated décor such as bespoke furniture and nature-inspired photography and artwork.
