“Clink!” The sound of wine glasses tapping together echoing on the beach as a couple toasts to their love during Beach Walk Café’s signature “Toes in the Sand” dining experience is just one note in a symphony of romantic experiences at Destin, Florida’s only all-inclusive, adult-only hotel, Henderson Park Inn.
Named the Most Romantic Inn in North America by TripAdvisor, Henderson Park Inn remains a hidden gem tucked away along the shores of the Emerald Coast perfect for an intimate escape.
“Henderson Park Inn is one of the most unique places in the country in that it matches modern luxury with classic, coastal charm for a romantic getaway like nowhere else,” said General Manager Dawn Moliterno. “It’s a property that’s designed with no detail of a stay overlooked.”
Initially designed to replicate all the best features of the classic-style coastal inns in New England, Henderson Park Inn continues to capture the hearts of visitors and locals. Each thoughtfully-decorated suite distinguishes itself from others, boasts breathtaking views of the Gulf’s emerald-green water, and is designed for total pampered privacy, featuring sumptuous bedding, a flat-screen TV and concierge service for any additional flights of fancy.
The attentive staff caters to each guest’s every need from the moment he or she enters. Rooms greet guests with romantic music, a bottle of wine and two glasses, a vase of roses, as well as grapes and gourmet chocolates.
But, there’s no limit on the romantic experiences offered at Henderson Park Inn. Couples can grab a picnic lunch provided by the Inn, claim a spot for two on the powdery beach where complementary beach chairs ensure there’s ample room to find some relaxing seclusion or explore the area like a local on bikes provided by the hotel.
“From a chef-prepared and buffet breakfast to a complementary happy hour at our tiki bar, the Inn provides everything you need for a perfect romantic beach vacation,” said Moliterno.
For the full romantic effect, couples are encouraged to dine al-fresco on the terrace of Henderson Park Inn’s on-site restaurant, Beach Walk Café, as much for the atmosphere as for the exquisite food, which is expertly crafted by Executive Chef Daniel Peters. For pure seclusion, couples can arrange a “Toes in the Sand” dining experience. Guests can toast to their love by the light of tiki torches at this private dinner on the beach. The romantic, rose-petaled excursion pairs fresh-caught seafood with glasses of bubbly.
And if guests are looking for additional activities, they have access to the amenities, including a resort-style pool and spa, at the Inn’s sister property, The Henderson, a Salamander Beach & Spa Resort.
“But you won’t want to miss the sunset on the back patio of the Inn,” said Moliterno. “To see the sun sink in the Emerald Coast waters is absolutely stunning and one of the most romantic moments our property can offer.”
