About Us

Enjoy the ultimate beach retreat at WaterColor® Inn, located in Northwest Florida along the Gulf of Mexico. Situated between the resort towns of Destin and Seaside, families have been coming to these beaches for generations. For many of them, the visits grew longer and longer with each passing year, until these Southern shores became their home-away-from-home. Here, they created a unique Southern coastal lifestyle. It seems fitting that WaterColor Inn pays homage to that custom while forging its own identity. Designed by David Rockwell, the Inn combines the warmth and hospitality associated with traditional Southern grand hotels, the intimacy of bed-and-breakfast inns and the charm of classic beach houses.

All 60 rooms overlook the natural coastal sand dunes and face the beach- whether you opt for a Rotunda Suite, Gulf view or Dune view. Every room comes with a king-size bed with 100% Egyptian cotton linens and a queen sofa sleeper. Central to each room's original design are large walk-in showers with inset windows looking out to the emerald waters of the Gulf. Thoughtful touches include a 40-inch Flat-screen TV with cable and satellite channels, a DVD player, an iPod docking station, a mini-fridge, a Keurig coffeemaker, wireless Internet access, a work desk, a ceiling fan, an electronic safes and a roomy sitting area.

Dining options are as plentiful as the accommodations and include Fish Out of Water, offering casual breakfast fare and a creative dinner menu with regional seafood dishes and farm fresh dinner entrées. The Gathering Spot with indoor and poolside service for lunch and dinner including a sushi bar, and The Beach Club Grill and Rita Bar serving salads, sandwiches and snacks for a quick bite while enjoying the sun. The Beach Club is an oasis from too much sun and a good place to enjoy good food and drinks. For our guests' convenience, we have fully-equipped changing rooms with showers and lockers and a pool service area that offers sun screen products, sunglasses, hats and water toys. The hotel also features a fitness center, a spa and a library with complimentary DVD rentals.

WaterColor offers much more than the pleasures of the beach, and WaterColor Inn guests enjoy access to additional diversions situated throughout the 499-acre community. Canoes, kayaks and sailboats are available from the WaterColor BoatHouse, directly on the banks of Western Lake, a 220-acre dune lake. The Tennis Center features a stadium court surrounded by a grass-stepped terrace for the gallery, and five har-tru hydrogrid clay courts, including three that are lit for night play, and a pro shop with tennis gear. All guests at WaterColor Inn enjoy access to St. Joe Club & Resort amenities including private golf at Camp Creek Golf Club and Shark's Tooth Golf Club,

Best of the Best

WaterColor® Inn is Northwest Florida’s only AAA Four Diamond and Forbes Four Star beachfront hotel. Situated on the pristine sugar-white beaches of South Walton, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, the Inn provides the perfect combination of warm Southern hospitality, the intimacy of a bed-and-breakfast and the fun of a classic beach house — the ideal coastal setting to gather and inspire. Enjoy award-winning cuisine at several dining venues; complimentary kayaking, canoeing and other recreational activities; and private St. Joe Club & Resort amenities, including a private beach club, championship golf and more.

Advisor Tip

Definitely make reservations at Fish Out of Water, the Inn’s wonderful restaurant. The grouper with corn pudding is fabulous. –Patti Lehman Carmel, Indiana
