WATERCOLOR INN AND RESORT NAMED TO CONDÉ NAST TRAVELER'S 2008 "GOLD LIST"
Santa Rosa Beach, FL (January 24, 2008) – The WaterColor Inn and Resort, a 60-room, David Rockwell-designed luxury beachfront hotel on Florida's scenic Gulf Coast, has been named to Condé Nast Traveler's coveted 2008 "Gold List," which ranks "The World's Best Places to Stay."
More than 28,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers elected the world's finest properties and cruise lines for the magazine's annual "Readers' Choice Awards" (November 2007 issue). In this poll, WaterColor Inn and Resort ranked amongst the "Top 50 Mainland U.S. Resorts." The 14th annual "Gold List" (January 2008 issue) takes a closer look at these winners, evaluating readers' comments about what precisely distinguishes the sublime sojourn from the satisfactory stay.
Judged on its rooms, service, food/dining, location, overall design and activities, the WaterColor Inn and Resort received an outstanding overall score of 86.1 (out of 100). The property outranked the likes of the Mandarin Oriental in Miami and the Ritz-Carlton South Beach.
What attracts guests to this off-the-beaten-path destination is its pristine, white-sand beach and the resort's impressive selection of amenities for guests of all ages and interests. They include the highly-acclaimed Fish Out of Water restaurant; a Beach Club with swimming pool, bar and grill; an intimate spa; tennis center; state-of-the-art workout center; the BoatHouse – offering kayaks, canoes and fishing gear; a woodland bike trail; Camp WaterColor kids club and an Orvis-accredited fishing outfitter. Guests also enjoy privileged access to the Tom Fazio-designed Camp Creek Golf Course, in addition to Origins, a course designed for family and novice play, and the award-winning Shark's Tooth Golf Club, a challenging course designed by Greg Norman.
In addition to WaterColor's 60-room inn, the resort offers a large selection of beautifully furnished rental homes, ranging from one to six bedrooms. Guests enjoy the same privileged access to WaterColor's amenities as the homes' owners do.
