Overview

Following the success of the Salamander Resort & Spa in Virginia -- regularly named one of the best resorts in the south by readers of Conde Nast Traveler -- the Salamander group adds a new member to its family: the Henderson Beach Resort in Destin, Forida. 

The Henderson Beach Resort, which opened in November 2016, has a prime location near the white sugar sands of what U.S. News & World Report calls Florida's Best Beach. The resort also sits right next to the 200-acre Henderson Beach State Park, which has over a mile more of beachfront -- and all guests receive a family pass to the park, included with their resort fee.

With 170 rooms -- ranging from garden-view kings and spa-inspired rooms with clawfoot soaking tubs to pool- and Gulf-view rooms, lofts and suites -- there's a space that works for a romantic Gulf getaway, family trip or business travel. All rooms feature balconies, pillowtop mattresses, 43-inch flat-panel TVs, sunken tubs and complimentary Wi-Fi. 

In addition to the beach access, there are two pools -- one for families with a splash pad and lazy river and the other an adults-only retreat with cabanas available for rent. There's a kids club with an arts, crafts and activities, as well as a fitness center with reasonably priced classes including yoga, barre and Zumba. There resort also offers a full salon and spa.  

Dining options include sea-to-table menus at Primrose; cocktails and local beers at the octagon-shaped bar overlooking the Gulf; ice cream sundaes and root beer floats at Sprinkles; and the poolside Sea Levels bar and grill, where you can cool off with spiked snow cones and popsicles.
