Next month, The Henderson Beach Resort, one of two new properties for the Salamander Collection, will debut in the city of Destin along Florida’s Gulf Coast. Located on nearly two miles of white powder-sand beach, the 171-guestroom resort features sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine dunes, as well as a sun-lit fitness room; and a spa with 11 spacious treatment rooms, water treatments and amenities, as well as a women’s locker room that opens onto a private relaxation terrace overlooking the adjacent Henderson Beach nature preserve. The property also features a dedicated children’s program and family-friendly pool with a lazy river and quiet adult zone. Dining venues include a signature restaurant serving Destin’s Gulf-to-table seafood dishes and an array of steaks, chops and healthy fare, a poolside grill, outdoor terrace dining with sunset views, and an old-fashioned ice cream shop.
Next door, at the 208-acre, environmentally protected nature preserve, guests can participate in a variety of activities, including hiking, biking and canoeing; or, they can utilize the resort’s fleet of luxury cars or concierge shuttle to visit nearby attractions, such as two championship golf courses and the Destin Commons shopping mall. Rates start at $215 per night. For more information, call (855) 741-2777 or visit hendersonbeachresort.com.
