The Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa completed a $5-million renovation.

DESTIN, FL—The Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa has completed the $5-million renovation of its meeting space, accommodations and fine-dining restaurant.

The 598-room hotel boasts more than 32,000 sq. ft. of flexible indoor meeting space that now features a design inspired by the resort’s beachfront setting. Natural stones and tiles, a palette of indigos and sand dollar whites, modern lighting and cheerful accents were added to create an air of relaxed Florida charm throughout the resort’s two ballrooms, breakout space, intimate boardroom and pre-function areas, according to the company. Other features include custom Kinon finished pilasters, Axminster carpet, wall treatments and fresh paint. The renovation also incorporated state-of the-art technology into new teleconferencing facilities in the boardroom and touch screen lighting in the ballrooms.

Seagar’s Prime Steaks and Seafood has also received a facelift. The 150-seat restaurant’s new interior color palette features coastal soft blues, greens, platinum and sandy hues, set in contrast to traditional 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 created to showcase Seagar’s 600 label-wine list.

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 center 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, premium cable TV, and Lodgenet movies and video games.
