Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort Offers Full Slate of Activities and Events this Summer
DESTIN, FL, March 26, 2012 /CNW/ - One of the Florida Coast's top destinations is predicting a bright summer with increased occupancy and added guest activities. Reservations for summer months at Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort located near Destin, Florida are 15 percent over the same time last year.
According to the South Walton Tourist Development Council annual report, the summer of 2011 was the highest bed tax collections in Walton County history. Sandestin, which is a part of Visit South Walton is on track to break these figures for the summer season as well as adding in some terrific recreational options for the growing demand.
"The anticipation of the summer season this year is exciting," said Steven Schaeffer, vice president of operations for Sandestin. "Our bookings are strong and this summer will be a wonderful experience for our guests."
Not only are the numbers looking good for Sandestin, but also for guests, especially those who are planning ahead. Guests can receive up to 20 percent off rates when booking at least 21 days in advance (Code: LOWEST). Or book six nights and get the seventh night for free (Code: FREE7). For those who do not have the luxury of planning ahead there are still opportunities to save with hot dates and rates (Code: HOT). With summer being an in-demand time of year, guests are encouraged to book early.
Based on the rise in booking trends, Sandestin is predicting a good summer season and also an opportunity for vacationers to experience endless sunshine, activities and events. In addition to the beautiful beaches, Sandestin offers enough activities to stay all week and play a different sport every day. Four championship golf courses, 15 world-class tennis courts, a 113-slip marina for deep sea or off shore fishing, YOLO Boarding, bicycling, canoeing and kayaking tempt those who want to leave the sanctity of the seashore.
