Hotel Effie Sandestin

Hotel Effie Sandestin is nestled between the white sandy beaches and emerald green waters of the Gulf Coast and the living shorelines of Choctawhatchee Bay in Northwest Florida, inside the gates of Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort. The hotel is projected to open in Fall 2020.

Purposefully created to delight the most selective of guests, Hotel Effie offers a luxury spa, state-of-the-art fitness center, a rooftop pool and bar and 20,000 sq. ft. of meeting space including a 13,000-sq. ft. ballroom. Hotel Effie’s meeting space will be contiguous with Baytowne Conference Center’s newly renovated 30,000 sq. ft. of meeting space offering 50,000 sq. ft. of meeting space with two 13,000 sq. ft. ballrooms. Hotel Effie’s design is a fresh take on a coastal Florida hotel with thoughtful interiors featuring smart solutions for the modern traveler.

Serviced by three airports and centrally located, it’s the perfect backdrop for the seamless meeting, convention or incentive trip. Hotel Effie will offer a dedicated and experienced team to tailor each event so that it seamlessly suits the needs of any group or company.
