About us

Luxury Hotel On Florida’s Emerald Coast

With a classic coastal design, the intimate WaterColor® Inn offers a relaxed beach house ambiance with all of the perks and amenities of a well-appointed boutique hotel. When you walk through our doors you instantly feel at home. It’s not just the broad strokes — the private beach, the stunning pools, gourmet restaurants and 500 acres of undisturbed seaside beauty — it’s the little details that make for special moments, like rooms with Adirondack chairs overlooking the Gulf of Mexico on your private balcony or the pebbled footpaths meandering through tranquil lakeside parks and gardens.
