Contemporary Look, Amenities and Investment of Nearly $2 Million Slated 

DESTIN, FL – Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort today unveiled plans for Le Ciel, Destin Florida’s only contemporary boutique hotel experience.  

Located on the banks of the Choctawhatchee Bay, Le Ciel will offer 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 Le Ciel, French for the word sky.  Offering guests cultural and landscape inspiration, Le Ciel’s boutique environment will provide the perfect getaway for the discernible leisure or group traveler. 

Le Ciel 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 will enjoy fountains, 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.  Le Ciel enjoys the prime location along the bay. It is at the site of Sandestin’s first multistory resort hotel, most recently known as Bayside Inn. 

Sandestin is investing more than $2 million in this elegant transformation, and Le Ciel will welcome the next generation of visitors this season, just in time for Memorial Day.  With Le Ciel, 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.

Le Ciel guests will enjoy their choice of one bedroom suites, king and double-double guest rooms with hand-picked, sophisticated décor.  One bedroom suites will be appointed with a full kitchen and dining room; and studio rooms will include a refrigerator and microwave oven, and in-room coffee maker. 
All guest rooms will 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 hotel will also feature a stunning entrance and lobby, and even the use of Binoculars, available upon request for dolphin or bird watching.
What makes Le Ciel 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 cup of tea or a signature cocktail and listening to the sounds of water and relaxing with that special someone as the sun says good night over the bay. 

Other major features of Le Ciel are the pool, with beverage service including a full range of tempting cocktails and build-your-own smoothies.

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 Le Ciel is the Sandestin Fitness Center, where guests have complimentary access, with use of the sauna and exercise equipment. 

Specialists are taking reservations for Le Ciel for stays this May.  For additional details, contact 1.877.9LeCIEL or (877) 953-2435.  Coming soon is the property’s new website
