Editor’s Review of Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort
Amelia Island Plantation executives like to say that "this resort was green before Kermit the Frog." While Kermit's birth may have predated the resort's by ... more a few years, Amelia Island Plantation was planned to be green. And it wasn't easy -- or even common--to be green in 1971 when planning began or in 1974 when the resort opened. Charles Fraser, known for his creation of Sea Pines, Hilton Head, S.C., and a guiding force behind Amelia Island Plantation's development, insisted on maintaining natural habitats while developing resort properties.
To a large extent, Amelia Island Plantation succeeds. Despite offering 610 guest accommodations that include 404 hotel rooms in the Amelia Inn and Beach Club, 330 one- to three-bedroom "villas" (condominiums), plus single family or attached homes in various areas (only a small percentage are in the rental pool), the resort manages to maintain 70 percent of its natural tree canopy.
That's important to us as family. When we look out from our fifth-floor hallway, we see greenery instead of rooftops, a sight that helps us feel as if we're away from our urban home. "Green" isn't just the color of the trees; it's also the award that the resort has won from the state of Florida. The environmentally conscious can feel good about being here. As a Green Destination, Amelia Island Plantation recycles, irrigates the golf courses with reclaimed water, uses and sells spa products without chemicals, parabens or artificial preservatives. In addition, since the resort's golf courses are Audubon sanctuaries, you'll find more than one kind of "birdie" on the courses.
The resort spent a year in renovations and the now-complete $85 million investment has created an exciting resort with 404 rooms, a multi-tiered pool deck - the largest in Northeast Florida - and more!
