Hilton Sandestin eyes next renovation

The Hilton Sandestin Golf Resort & Spa may be nearing 30 years old, but an upcoming $10 million renovation is designed to make sure no one can tell.

The Hilton recently announced plans to redesign and refurnish of all its Spa Tower rooms, upgrade the 11,000-square-foot Serenity by the Sea Spa and enhance the hotel’s entrance, lobby and common areas.

Construction is scheduled to start Oct. 1 and run through next February.

“It’s time to put money back into the property and maintain that cutting edge and continue to be the leader,” said Gary Brielmayer, general manager of the Hilton Sandestin. “We’re really looking forward to it. We’re excited.

“This is on the heels of our 30-year anniversary, so basically our 30-year-old property is going to be, from top to bottom, completed and brand new,” he added.

The renovation will come after two recent projects to update the hotel.

In 2011, the Hilton Sandestin completed a $6.5 million job to rebuild the Barefoots Bar & Grill restaurant and pool deck, and complete repairs to a portion of the hotel damaged by a fire. Earlier this year, the hotel completed a $5.5 million project to renovate Seagars Prime Steaks and Seafood and the hotel’s conference spaces.
