Hotel at a Glance: AAA Four Diamond Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort
Receiving a AAA Four Diamond award for 30 consecutive years wasn’t good enough for the people behind Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort; they decided the sprawling island getaway could use a face-lift. One $85 million renovation later, the resort is bigger and better than ever. Beyond its 3.5 miles of beaches, the biggest onsite gem is its multitiered poolscape, which features an adults-only infinity pool with sweeping ocean views, a massive family-friendly pool and splash park, two hot tubs, and three fire pits.
Luxurious guest rooms feature Serta pillow-top mattresses, high-definition TVs, and ocean views from furnished private balconies or patios.
Nine onsite dining optionsinclude a pub, a French-style market, and a pizzeria.
Get pampered: The full-service spa and salon uses products that are free of harmful chemicals and artificial ingredients.
Tee off: The resort’s three championship golf courses are home to golf Channel’s Big Break Florida and have earned it a spot on Condé Nast Traveler’s Top Golf Resorts in the World list in 2012.
Amelia Island, Florida: Popular Seaside Island with 13 Miles of Pristine Beach
Amelia Island—a barrier island located about 35 miles northeast of Jacksonville—has been consistently ranked among the Top 10 Islands in the United States by Condé Nast Traveler. At just 2 miles wide and 13 miles long from its northernmost tip to its southernmost point, the secluded island offers a string of pristine beaches. Main Beach has sports and entertainment, and Peters Point is well suited for family picnics. Then there’s Seaside Park at Sliders, where you can park your car on the beach.
Situated on the northeast corner of the island, Fernandina Beach is a Victorian seaport village filled with eclectic shops and restaurants. Stroll through the 50-block historic district to glimpse Victorian, Queen Anne, and Italianate homes listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Nearby, in Fort Clinch State Park, you can tour a preserved 19th-century fort, hike or bike on the 6-mile trail that loops through the park, or go for a swim on the unspoiled beaches.
