Just announced today the opening of The Island by Hotel RL, the first resort destination for the fast-growing upscale boutique brand on the beautiful Gulf of Mexico in Northwest Florida.. Guests will enjoy fully renovated public spaces including multiple restaurants, lively bars and a market offering a selection of snacks, beverages and unique souvenirs. Newly designed guest rooms will debut in 2019 and I can't wait to see more information on the new restaurants as well.
A staple on Okaloosa Island since 1966, and located in the heart of Florida's Emerald Coast, the beachfront resort features 335 rooms, 14,000 square feet of event space with a penthouse ballroom, two swimming pools, a grotto with a swim-up bar, a beach bar, kids splash garden and a beachside coffee truck… nothing says beach like a coffee truck right?
This summer, along with unveiling its signature restaurant, Nineteen66 Southern Grill & Tap House, the resort will launch Hotel RL's first poolside Living Stage, providing local musicians, poets, authors, public speakers, artists and more with a community platform to showcase outdoor performances and live acts. Additional programming and amenities include fire pits, yoga on the lawn, art classes, dive-in movie nights and more.
Can’t wait to see more information on this promising production. Looks like it might be an alternative to Harbor Walk in Destin, and you won’t have to fight the traffic to attend some of the events.
The Island by Hotel RL is located on Okaloosa Island at 1500 Miracle Strip Pkwy SE, Fort Walton Beach, FL 32548 on Okaloosa Island.
See you at the beach!
