Sandestin is the most prestigious resort on the entire Emerald Coast and a popular destination among many of our Ocean Reef Resorts guests. This exclusively gated 2,400-acre world-class destination provides special privileged surroundings for those who are fortunate enough to vacation here.
This lovely portion of paradise straddles the peninsula all the way across from the glowing jewel toned southern Gulf of Mexico to the vast expanse of the Choctawhatchee Bay. Four championship golf courses are available for play while the upscale Sandestin town center of Grand Boulevard and charming New Orleans French Quarter-inspired Village of Baytowne Wharf provide abundant amusements. Each one features a wide array of restaurants, lively bars, boutiques, shopping venues, outdoor concerts, fun festivals, and seasonal fireworks. Sandestin provides a wonderful highly hospitable self-contained world of its own, and once you arrive here, you never have a desire to leave.
The original Hilton Hotel was part of the initial Sandestin development and some people like staying here for a few days, often to attend a wedding, business event, or convention. For those looking to join in on the fun at the hotel, but would like a little more space to spread out, separate bedrooms, full kitchens, and increased privacy - Ocean Reef Resorts proudly offers numerous high-quality vacation rental selections that are literally steps away from the hotel.
