Four Awards Recognize Resort’s Outstanding Spa, Dining, Venue & More

SOUTH WALTON, Fla. (Oct. 1, 2021) – Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, a premier beachfront resort located on Florida’s gulf coast, has been recognized in the most recent “Best of Emerald Coast” reader poll conducted annually by Emerald Coast Magazine, the region’s premier lifestyle magazine. Readers voted the resort Best Full-Service Spa; Best Fine Dining Restaurant; Best Place to Watch a Sunset; and Best Event Space. The awards were based on input from Emerald Coast Magazine readers who casted their votes online or via print ballot found in the June/July 2021 issue. The Best of the Emerald Coast awards serve as an endorsement for businesses that are reliable, highly professional and integral parts of their local economy.

 “Our entire team is ecstatic to have received these top honors from Emerald Coast Magazine’s loyal readers,” said Gary Brielmayer, Hilton Sandestin general manager. “This recognition gives a boost to all those who work so hard year round to create best-in-class experiences that excite and motivate our valued guests.”

The Best Full-Service Spa award was for Serenity by the sea Spa, the resort’s full-service onsite spa, salon and fitness center, with Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafood, a long-time favorite on the Emerald Coast, named Best Fine Dining Restaurant. Guests and locals alike agree that Barefoots Beachside Bar and Grill, named the Best Place to Watch a Sunset, quite literally has the best views in town; and Hilton Sandestin’s world-class meeting facilities were recognized as the Best Event Space.
