Places To Visit: Omni Amelia Island Plantation

Beginning a new chapter in its nearly 40-year heritage, the Omni Amelia Island Plantation is undergoing an extensive re-imagination project. As Florida’s award-winning island destination, the resort is recognized for offering a luxury resort experience in perfect harmony with nature, rich in recreational activities. The certified Green Lodging Destination is nestled between the Atlantic Ocean, lush marshlands and the Intracoastal Waterway, located just north of Jacksonville, Fla.

Situated on the 1,350-acres of the Amelia Island Plantation, the property offers three-and-a-half miles of wide, uncrowded beaches; 49,000 square feet of flexible meeting space; 54 holes of championship golf; 23 Har-Tru tennis courts; award-winning recreation programs; a shopping village with restaurants, boutiques and gift shops as well as the nature-inspired signature spa; a state-of-the-art fitness center; nine culinary options ranging from casual to fine dining; kids camps; and numerous activities for adventurers including water sports, horseback riding, walking, hiking and Segway tours. With 249 guest rooms in the oceanfront resort, the Villas of Amelia Island Plantation Resort offer 300 one-, two- and three-bedroom villas with ocean, golf or resort views.

Nestled between the dune-swept beaches of the Atlantic Ocean and natural salt marshlands, the Omni Amelia Island Plantation will unveil an $85 million “Re-Imagination” in March 2013. The iconic resort blends seamlessly with nature and invites vacationers to experience 1,350 acres of recreational offerings, championship golf and tennis, the largest poolscape in Northeast Florida and more diverse culinary experiences with the newly launched “Pre-Opening” package.
