With the sudden rise in digital learning, Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, a premier beachfront resort on Florida’s gulf coast, is offering several unique resources for virtual learning and educational experiences on the sugar white sands of the emerald coast. From brain-boosting breakfast options and midday energy pick-me-ups, to local physical education activities, and art and history experiences, Hilton Sandestin caters to families looking to spend school time in the sunshine.
The resort helps wake up sleepy heads for a day of learning with a full-service breakfast buffet at Sandcastles Restaurant, featuring multiple natural brain foods that boost concentration and performance. Guests can stop by the custom omelet station for a protein-packed creation or personalize a parfait with a wide array of fresh fruit, granola, and yogurt. For a midday pick-me-up, The Coffee Shop proudly serves Starbucks coffee, espresso drinks, Tazo teas, and an assortment of freshly baked pastries from the resort’s pastry chef.
Knowing the importance of a comfortable learning environment, the resort has equipped each guest room with a custom-made, two-seater desk with multiple plug-in outlets, situated near the windows for natural lighting and away from the entrance to eliminate distractions. Guests can also opt to work outside their rooms on private balconies or along the beachfront, taking advantage of the complimentary Wi-Fi around the pool deck. Private pool cabanas, which can be reserved up to a year in advance, feature a power source so guests can keep their devices fully charged, and an ice chest of bottled waters to stay hydrated.
Offering a mix of outdoor adventure, indoor crafting and playground fun, Visit South Walton Tourism suggests stepping off property for a physical education break. Hilton Sandestin offers close proximity to four state parks, 15 coastal dune lakes, and Point Washington State Forest. Families can enjoy miles of hiking and biking trails, bird and butterfly watching, kayaking through freshwater ponds, and searching for various species of plants and animals. Considered one of the area’s most historic attractions, Eden Garden State Park is home to the Wesley Mansion, which was occupied by lumber baron William Henry Wesley and his family in the 1800s.
