Experience Tropical Southern Charm at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort

The state of Florida is famous for many reasons that attract millions of visitors each year. From the world-class beaches to the thrilling theme parks, it’s hard to stay away from Florida’s attractions and natural beauty. More specifically, Florida is known for its endless miles of picturesque beaches that surround the state from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico. Everyone knows what to expect when traveling to a Florida beach – warm sunshine, soaring palm trees, and the soothing sound of the ocean waves breaking on the shoreline. There’s nothing else like it. 

However, your idea of a “Florida beach” might change when you enter Amelia Island, where tropical Florida meets southern charm. Located about 45 minutes northeast of Jacksonville is where you’ll find the effortless beauty of Amelia Island and the resort that puts it on the map – the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort.

When you take a sleepy Florida beach town and combine it with a classic southern town, such as Savannah, you get Amelia Island. The Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort is a destination that uses both of these aspects perfectly to create one of the most memorable and unique resort experiences in the state. The Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort is Florida’s premier AAA Four Diamond destination island resort sitting on 1,350-acres of property overlooking the infinite Atlantic Ocean.

This exquisite oceanfront property is much more than any normal beach resort – it’s an entire community. Offering 404 oceanfront hotel rooms with a private balcony and patios facing the ocean, the Omni Amelia Island guest rooms are a charming place to start and end the day. You can choose to enjoy the resort by relaxing in your room with the view of the ocean and ordering room service – or step out to enjoy one of nine world-class restaurants right on the resort property.

Aside from the resort being in the perfect location with endless amenities, one of the best assets to the Omni Amelia Island is their talented Executive Chef Daven Wardynski. Leading the culinary team at Omni Amelia Island Plantation since October 2012, Chef Daven brings over 17 years of culinary experience to the Omni and oversees all nine of the resort’s restaurants.  When eating a meal prepared by Chef Daven and his team of highly trained culinary experts, you will be left in shock and awe at how they can take the most unusual ingredients and combine them to create the most delectable meal you will ever consume.

However, with all the eating you’ll be doing, it’s important to keep a balance with exercise and activities, and the Omni Amelia Island offers an endless amount of options to keep you healthy and entertained for the duration of your stay. Going away on vacation doesn’t mean your workout routine should be ignored; there are plenty of ways to stay fit and healthy on property. Whether you take a few tennis lessons with a pro at Racquet Park, or pump some iron at their fully equipped Health & Fitness Center, you won’t be missing anything while you’re here.

Their fitness center features Life Fitness treadmills, cross trainers, stair climbers, upright and recumbent bikes and strength machines as well as Cybex weight equipment and free weights.  Perhaps swimming is your preference?  Take advantage of their 20-yard heated indoor lap pool with family swim time scheduled daily. 

Once you’re ready to explore the property, be sure to schedule a significant amount of time out of your day to discover the whole property. On the east side of the resort, you can swim in the ocean and take a relaxing walk on the white sand beach at sunrise. Or perhaps on the west side you can choose to go for Seabreeze Segway Tour. Glide through the property’s endless trails of canopy trees with hanging moss – you’ll forget you’re in Florida…and at the beach!

The best way to explain an experience at the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort is, you won’t have a reason to leave the property. It’s a destination resort that is made to keep you coming back throughout the year. From a round of golf at their world-class course, or a rejuvenating spa treatment, you will begin to feel like the Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort is your home away from home.
