A True Getaway
At this adults-only boutique hotel, you can get a slice of paradise all to yourself. It’s no secret why the Henderson Park Inn was named Florida’s Best Romantic Getaway. Close your eyes and take a moment to picture your idea of the ultimate sanctuary. Does an intimate room with luxury amenities come to mind? How about a charming terrace overlooking the white-sand beaches of the Emerald Coast or sipping on a glass of wine as you cruise along the water at sunset? That’s the kind of bliss you’ll experience with a stay at the Henderson Park Inn in Destin, Florida.
The Inn’s setting is spectacular, situated directly on the beach, allowing each room a vista of the Gulf of Mexico and the pristine white beaches of Florida’s Emerald Coast. Guests can take advantage of the location of Henderson Park Inn, next to the beachside State Park, by lounging on complimentary beach chairs with umbrellas, enjoying a picnic on the beach with a gourmet boxed lunch (also complimentary), or bicycling down Scenic 98.
As the only all-inclusive hotel in the region, the Innhas earned the reputation as one of the finest lodgings in the area. The exquisitely designed suites are all unique and feature breathtaking views, flat-screen TV’s, fresh decor and luxurious bedding. No detail is overlooked, including a bottle of wine and roses upon arrival, mini-refrigerators, microwaves, sitting areas and writing desks. After a peaceful night sleeping to the sound of the waves, guests are treated to a breakfast like no other at “Beach Walk” restaurant, the only fine-dining experience directly on the Gulf. For dining in the evening (the only meal not included in the cost of the stay), the restaurant features a more intimate atmosphere with dining available inside with a cozy fireplace and magnificent views of the coast or outside on the verandas of the Inn overlooking the turquoise waters of the Gulf. They even offer a “Toes in the Sand Dining” experience for the ultimate romantic evening!
All the wonderful things aside, the true luxury you’ll encounter is the staff. Ryan Olin, the Innkeeper explains “For the most part, when folks come to The Henderson, they are looking for total relaxation, no thinking, reconnecting to themselves, their partner or just their lives. We take pride in helping our guests achieve that by being aware and taking care of every detail, before they worry about or even know they might desire it”. We found this to be true in every encounter with the Inn’s professional staff, attentive but not obtrusive, the perfect level of service.
Few resorts offer more than a mile of the world’s most beautiful, secluded beaches and the ultimate romantic experience. The guest book says it all. The comments from honeymooners and couples celebrating anniversaries and other special events were glowing. Henderson Park knows romance. The Inn provides such a relaxing atmosphere that everything else just seems to disappear. The only thing some guests may return home with is a restored peace of mind and wondering when they can come back to their picture postcard perfect getaway.
Additionally, Henderson Park Inn was selected by Trip Advisor as one of the top ten most romantic hotels in the country. The inn was nominated in recognition of its beautiful beachside view and superior room service that includes cocktails, wine and chocolate delivery. The beautiful setting and helpful staff were just a few of the features lauded by customers, many of whom came for a short honeymoon and vowed to make Henderson Park Inn an annual destination. The inn’s BeachWalk Café has also been recognized for romance, being named one of the Top 100 Most Romantic Restaurants in the U.S. in OpenTable Diners’ Choice Awards.
“We are thrilled with the recognition,” said Innkeeper Ryan Olin. “What makes this particular award so special is that it’s customer driven. Our location is second to none and so is the service and amenities we offer our guests. We’re proud to be recognized by Trip Advisor and our loyal guests.”
