Our Story

Sugar white sand beaches, glorious blue skies and emerald toned Gulf waters set the backdrop for the most exciting and dynamic stage in coastal hospitality!  Nestled on 14 acres of exclusive, gulf-front property, Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa is the largest beach front resort hotel on the Emerald Coast of Florida and one of the most active employers in Walton County. Rich in tradition and renowned for impeccable service and superior facilities, Hilton Sandestin Beach has become the benchmark for hospitality on the Florida Panhandle.

Opened in late 1984, Hilton Sandestin Beach has thrived and evolved to become amazingly successful business it is today.  The hotel features 590 rooms, multiple restaurants highlighted by Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafood, a recreation department, 62,500 sq feet of flexible meeting and event space, the award-winning Serenity by the sea Spa plus so much more.  Hilton Sandestin Beach is consistently recognized as a “best in class” facility by local, regional and national magazines, trade organizations and travel industry insiders. The hotel is also certified with the TripAdvisor “Certificate of Excellence” for our ongoing commitment to the customer experience.
