We’re located right on the picturesque Gulf of Mexico in Miramar Beach, Florida—just a few miles from Destin, Florida.

If you’ve been dreaming of a beach meeting or a coastal conference—join us at Hilton Sandestin Beach Golf Resort & Spa.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED, IN ONE PLACE

Our resort is easily accessible for your event attendees, located between three main regional airports that offer daily flights from hubs including Atlanta, Houston, Washington, Dallas, Nashville, Baltimore and Orlando. Once on property, your guests will find six seasonal dining venues ranging from an airy beachside cafe to a late-night lounge or our AAA Four-Diamond steakhouse. Elsewhere on property, guests enjoy two outdoor pools and one indoor pool, an on-site spa and 24-hour fitness center, and of course—beach access and unforgettable Gulf views. And for those who bring the family along, we offer a variety of kid-friendly amenities like in-room bunk-beds and Kids Krew programming. 

UNFORGETTABLE TEAM BUILDING

Give your attendees an experience they’ll never forget by thinking outside the ballroom.
