Contemporary Look, Amenities and Nearly $2 Million Invested
DESTIN, FL, May 24, 2012 /CNW/ - Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort today announced the official opening of LeCiel, the Destin area's only contemporary boutique hotel experience. LeCiel officially opened, in time for this year's summer travel season.
Located on the banks of the Choctawhatchee Bay, LeCiel offers a tranquil setting with sounds of water and stunning views to provide the backdrop. As a result, it is very fitting that this boutique hotel is named LeCiel, French for the word sky. Offering guests cultural and landscape inspiration, LeCiel's boutique environment provides the perfect getaway for the discernible traveler.
LeCiel relies on the water and the beautiful surroundings to provide the aesthetics of mind and body. In addition to the rich mixture of chrome, woods, copper, leather and fabrics, guests enjoy water walls, tranquil colors to set the tone of the experience before the guest even takes the first gaze onto the open bay and lingers long after the final good-bye.
Contrary to its contemporary comfort and look, the property is rich in history. LeCiel enjoys the prime location along the bay. It is at the site of one of Sandestin's first multistory resort hotels.
Sandestin invested more than $2 million in this elegant transformation, and LeCiel welcomes the next generation of visitors this season. With LeCiel, like every Sandestin community, travelers from all over the world can enjoy the stunning emerald green water of the Gulf of Mexico and sugar white sand beach, so much that they herald their experience to friends and neighbors on their return home.
LeCiel guests select their choice of one bedroom suites, king and double-double guest rooms with hand-picked, sophisticated décor. One bedroom suites are appointed with a full kitchen and dining room; and studio rooms include a refrigerator and microwave oven, and Keurig in-room coffee maker. All guest rooms have wireless internet, upgraded linens and terry, terry robes, gourmet coffee, iPhone docking stations, flat screen televisions, spa quality toiletries and other comforts.
This lovely boutique setting also features a stunning entrance and lobby, and even the use of Binoculars, available upon request from the front desk for dolphin or bird watching.
What makes LeCiel even more special are the amenities and offerings around it. Guests can enjoy views of the bay from the lounge or on the patio while enjoying a delicious cocktail and listening to the sounds of water and relaxing with that special someone as the sun says good night over the bay. LeCiel also has a stunning pool and deck with food and beverage service.
In addition, LeCiel is just steps away from the Sandestin Day Spa, featuring award winning service and a full menu of spa and salon services. Also located near the Spa and LeCiel is the Sandestin Fitness Center, where guests have complimentary access, with use of the sauna and exercise equipment.
