After visiting the Amelia Island Plantation in Florida I decided that there is just way to much goodness about the resort to write it all up in one post. I will be featuring Amelia Island in a 3 part feature starting with my favorites for a relaxing vacation getaway that I find perfect. Just look at that lovely row of beach cabanas above. When I think of a great relaxing getaway there are 3 big things that come to mind Cabana on the Beach, Spa treatments and good food. Omni Hotels and Resorts know how to do all three very well and with Amelia Island they kept their ever good reputation and well exceeded it.
Already a historical favorite resort, the Omni Hotels & Resorts spent $85 million to Re-Imagination the legendary Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort into the 404 rooms on 1,350 acres of private luxury resort to the stunning resort it is today. Yes, 1350 acres. Now you know why I need at least 3 parts of this feature.
With a huge new pool multi tiered pool including an adults only infinity edge pool, a 10,000 square foot family friendly pool and 3.5 miles of immaculate beach sun and water are abundant.
For me the poolside and beach side service while sipping a cool drink and reading my favorite magazine is ideal.
I also love that there is an adults only pool. I'm more of a pool lounger-floater-wader than a swimmer and the idea of relaxing with out kids splashing around sounds lovely.
One mark of a truly luxurious hotel resort is in the details. See the quality furniture and beautiful landscape, it's in the details.
A great resort always has a great spa. At the full service Spa and Salon is just "footsteps from the Sea." Taking a green and organic approach free from harmful chemicals, artificial ingredients and preservatives.
I have sensitive skin and I'm allergic to petrochemicals which aren't good for your body anyway so I LOVE this about the Amelia Island Spa.
How does a Seaside Sensory Journey that includes a cool down treatment using natural silk proteins and plum wine sugar acids or a Plantation Blossom Ritual that includes a warmed exfoliate of lemon, papaya, cherry blossom, and rice powder cream sound? You will be polished, buffed, masked, and massaged to a state of relaxation and calm.
The food is good, really good so good it will all be covered in part 2 of our 3 part feature.
