DESTIN, Fla. -  Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa, located directly on the unspoiled sugar-white sands of Northwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, is ready to kick off the summer. With a world-renowned family attraction and one of the largest airlines in the world arriving to its neighborhood this Memorial Day weekend, the area’s largest full-service beachfront resort hotel is looking forward to providing new and old visitors alike with the ultimate summer experience. Additionally, with a new seven-day cancellation policy, the Hilton Sandestin Beach is encouraging visitors to travel confidently and enjoy a stress-free summer.

This summer, Hilton Sandestin Beach will welcome new visitors from Baltimore, Houston, Nashville and Orlando, cities to/from which Southwest Airlines will now be offering nonstop flights to/from the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport.

“We’re excited to have the opportunity to introduce ourselves to new travelers looking for the best beach getaway this summer,” said Robert Kamm, President and CEO of Sandcastle Resorts, which oversees management for Hilton Sandestin Beach. “Families, friends, couples and business travelers alike will find everything they’re looking for at Hilton Sandestin Beach.”

Also in time for the kicking off the summer season, Hilton Sandestin Beach recently announced its partnership with Le Grand Cirque – a stunning production heralded by critics as “the next generation of Cirque du Soleil,” for which the hotel will service as one of three authorized ticket agents in the area. The show, which will run through August 16th, will be housed just a short walk away from the hotel, in the custom-designed, Italian-style, fabric structured Grand Arena, located in Grand Boulevard at Sandestin. Guests may purchase their tickets at  Hilton Sandestin Beach Activities Desk, or by calling 1-800-559-1814.

It goes without saying that Hilton Sandestin Beach’s location on one of the world’s most beautiful beaches –one of Frommer’s Top 12 Destinations for 2010 – makes it a summer traveler’s dream.

“Our region’s beaches have been recognized as some of the best in the world, and with their white sand and sparkling emerald-green water, it’s easy to see why we’re a premier beach destination,” Kamm said. “We’re looking forward to this summer with the same enthusiasm as every year and to sharing it with all of those families who have made Hilton Sandestin Beach a summer vacation tradition year after year.”

Additionally, in light of recent news of the Deepwater Horizon incident in the Gulf of Mexico, Hilton Sandestin Beach has implemented a 7-Day Cancellation Policy* to ensure stress-free summer planning. Should Hilton Sandestin’s beach be closed by the City, County, State or Federal Government due to the impacts from the Deepwater Horizon incident, the hotel will honor a 24-Hour Cancellation Policy.†

“We understand travelers’ questions and concerns regarding their beach vacation and want them to know that their summer travel plans are safe with us,” Kamm said. “Our beaches are beautiful and haven’t been affected, but we still want to be sure to accommodate our guests’ apprehensions.”

The hotel’s pristine location, combined with its commitment to excellence in facilities, amenities and service, allows it to offer something for every traveler and has oversized rooms and amenities to fit every need, including a private bunk-bed alcove for children, complete with a state-of-the-art media center.

Hilton Sandestin Beach provides all of the world-class amenities one might expect from a Hilton family hotel, including an 11,000-square-foot spa, salon and fitness center and the area’s first AAA Four-Diamond restaurant, Seagar’s Prime Steaks and Seafood. With endless recreation options both on-site and within the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort, this resort hotel truly has it all for every summer traveler. These amenities include: two outdoor pools and whirlpool; one indoor pool and whirlpool, five onsite dining venues; in-house children’s programs, a game room, lounge areas and decks, LodgeNet™ HD in-room movies and video games; and access to the best golfing, tennis, fishing, cycling, sailing and shopping in the area.
