Southern Living Hotel Collection Property
Rosemary Beach, FL
An oasis of cobblestone streets, wooden boardwalks, and nostalgic beach cruisers, Rosemary Beach offers only one full-service resort, The Pearl. Flip-flops and stilettos are both welcome at this luxurious and laid-back beach retreat. The 55 guest rooms feature large balcony doors, ideal for catching a crisp breeze off the Gulf of Mexico, and marble-lined baths with deep soaking tubs. At Spa Pearl, relax with a rejuvenating treatment poolside. Try the Ocean Bliss, a smoothing Dead Sea salt scrub followed by a healing coconut, lemongrass, honey, silk, and shea butter lotion. The pool is bright and cheery with golden yellow umbrellas that contrast with the minimalist, black-and-white hotel exterior. Family-friendly by day, the area becomes a swank social affair at night. If you want to join the party, order up a Cuba Libre at Havana Beach Bar & Grill, the hotel’s themed bar and restaurant. The bar shares space with the restaurant, and it can get a bit lively at night. If you would prefer a quiet meal, ask to sit on the veranda.
