PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL–Alliance Hospitality has added the Wyndham Bay Point Resort here to its growing portfolio. The company joins a group of investors which have acquired the property and will also manage the resort going forward.
Opened in 1986, the 316-room villa-style, full-service resort and spa destination features a full list of amenities. These include two 18-hole championship golf courses, one of which was designed by Jack Nicklaus, a 12,000 sq.-ft.-spa, two fitness centers, five clay tennis courts, five swimming pools, three restaurants, a lounge and 23,500 square feet of meeting space. Overlooking the beach and with access to a private strip of sand via a bay boardwalk the resort is readily accessible to a variety of local, county, state and interstate highways.
According to EJ Schanfarber, president and CEO of Alliance Hospitality, the company will soon begin making strategic investments that will enhance the overall guest experience. “We will make the Wyndham Bay Point Resort name synonymous with everything that defines a fantastic resort and desired destination. We will build on the property’s history of success and are committed to taking what is now a great resort property and making it even better,” he stated.
