New hotel in Rosemary Beach to open in July

Published: Saturday, May 18, 2013 at 09:14 AM.

Just in time for the summer season, Rosemary Beach will have another place for visitors to rest and relax.

A project that began six years ago will soon come to completion with the opening of The Pearl, a 55-room luxury hotel.

Opening July 8, The Pearl will feature a restaurant/bar serving three meals a day, a spa offering manicures, pedicures and massage therapy, and a rooftop bar — all of which will be open to the public.

The hotel will also feature 28-feet wide floating cabanas and a pool area exclusive to guests.

Michael Votta, general manager of The Pearl, has been vacationing in Rosemary Beach for the past six years. In locating the perfect address for the hotel, he didn't look much further than 30A.

"I love the nature of the area," Votta said. "And I'm honored to be a part of the community."

The new hotel is the most recent addition to an apparent building boom in Rosemary Beach. It joins The Inn on the Gulf, a resort featuring luxury lodging expected to be finished by summer 2014, and the Pine Beach Christian Camp & Retreat Center opening summer 2015.
