The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island
A barrier island on the East Coast that provided a safe anchor for seafaring souls, Amelia Island has been discovered and rediscovered many times over – by pirates and colonists and those who love how the sea can touch their soul. The island reveals many treasures, including The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, a sanctuary among luxury beach hotels that provides a welcome barrier between you and the world beyond.
The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort
The St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort is a peerless haven of oceanfront elegance, refined luxury, and anticipatory service. Awarded the coveted Forbes five-star and AAA five-diamond awards for 2018, our exclusive hotel is directly across from the celebrated Bal Harbour Shops; the whirlwind energy of South Beach and premier events like the world-renowned Art Basel are moments away.
Ponte Vedra Inn & Club
Located in the picturesque seaside village of Ponte Vedra Beach, just 20 miles southeast of Jacksonville, Florida, The Ponte Vedra Inn & Club and The Lodge & Club create an oceanfront luxury experience known as Ponte Vedra Beach Resorts. Guests of these extraordinary destinations enjoy reciprocal access to the spectacular array of amenities of both establishments, as well as the comfort of world-class accommodations and refined personal service.
The Breakers Palm Beach
Founded on the sands of Palm Beach in 1896, our resort’s story has been one of strong roots ever since—holding true to our values while evolving in a changing world. Travelers and critics alike gush over this Italian Renaissance-style resort. High on their list of perks are the gorgeous grounds, which feature two golf courses, four pools, a private beach and 10 Har-Tru tennis courts.
The Biltmore Hotel
Picture a dreamlike setting complete with exquisite, hand painted frescos on barrel vaulted ceilings, brilliant travertine floors, fine marble columns, intricate leaded glass fixtures, carved mahogany furnishings and lavish gardens. Although The Biltmore in Coral Gables, Florida does resemble the finest in classic Mediterranean architecture, it is neither an Italian palazzo nor Iberian castle.
The Setai Miami Beach
An Iconic Oasis of Luxury and Serenity. Serene and intimate, The Setai is an experience all of its own. An oasis of tranquility amidst the energy of South Beach. Its design and vision artfully combine the rich architectural history of South Beach’s Art Deco District with the multi-faceted cultural history of the International Art Deco movement, particularly its influence in Asia.
Waldorf Astoria Orlando
Located in the southeast corner of Walt Disney World, the Waldorf Astoria Orlando feels a lot like its New York counterpart. You’ll find similar design elements and notable dining establishments. But this Waldorf Astoria is decidedly Floridian, with citrus hues accenting the decor and on-site facilities. The big draw here is the 18-hole golf course and the cabana-lined lap pool and zero-entry pool are great for lounging and catching a tan.
