    Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, the largest full-service beachfront resort on Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, recently won a number of prestigious awards and accolades. Presented by the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association, the Walton County Tourist Development Council (Visit South Walton), and VIP Destin Magazine, the eight recent “best of” awards recognize the resort’s outstanding staff, amenities, facilities and services. 

    “We have a proud tradition of providing award-worthy experiences and are always gratified and honored to have our team’s dedication and hard work recognized by industry peers,” said Gary Brielmayer, Hilton Sandestin Beach general manager. “These awards are a direct result of the high priority we place on delivering an exceptional experience for each and every guest.”

Additional resort nominations included guest services director Robin Bailer for Best Front of House Employee.

    In the 2020 Perfect in South Walton Awards presented by Visit South Walton, the resort earned a Diamond Award for “Best Spa,” a Platinum Award for “Best Conference Venue” and a Gold Award for “Best Fine Dining.” The awards were based on input from nearly 25,000 locals and visitors who cast votes for the personal favorites. 

    The resort also won four Best in Destin Awards from VIP Destin Magazine, including Best Special Occasion Restaurant for Seagar’s Prime Steaks & Seafoods; Best Place for a Massage for Serenity by the Sea Spa; in addition to Best Wedding Venue and Best Reception Venue for the resort’s special event facilities and services. Nominations were made by the readers and fans of VIP Destin Magazine and then judged by editors based on specific criteria for each category.
