Part of the luxurious Opal Collection of hotels, this hideaway on Florida’s Atlantic Coast is a favorite family escape. Located in the quiet town of Jensen Beach, between Fort Pierce and West Palm Beach, Hutchinson Shores Resort & Spa has 178 rooms fronting a lovely stretch of sand. Marble countertops and roomy walk-in showers are standard throughout all of the rooms, and all rooms have private balconies for maximizing views of the pools or ocean.
The Dune Beach bar is a sweet little spot to sip a cocktail at day’s end, and there’s family dining at Drift Kitchen + Bar and the Reflections Pool Bar, too.
When you’re not enjoying the sand and ocean, there are two onsite pools, both heated in winter, where you can cool off and relax.

Great decor, attentive staff and stunning views. Clean, crisp, modern and chic. Rooms are beautiful, comfortable, quiet and very clean. An absolutely welcome addition to Hutchinson Island! Really good breakfast menu, very nice bar and outdoor entertaining decks.
Stopped here for a business lunch....excellent service and friendly people as soon as I entered the lobby. Food was flavourful and service second to none. Open, breezy, beachy feel with an upscale undercurrent.
