The Holiday Inn Resort Fort Walton Beach Hotel is located directly on the beach facing the Gulf of Mexico. We’re bright. We’re colorful. We have a giant beach ball on our roof. We like having fun and making memories.
Our resort is perfect for family vacations, romantic getaways, meetings and business travel. So whether you want to spend time with the kids or your colleagues, in a bathing suit or a three-piece suit, we’ll exceed your expectations.
For starters, our rooms feature unparalleled views of the Gulf of Mexico, with our hotel pool deck just steps from one of the most pristine beaches in the world. If you have to get up early, the sunrise is just as stunning as the sunset from your Gulf front balcony. Head downstairs to relax by the pool or float down our lazy river. Savor local flavor at Riptides Grill and Poolside Tiki Bar. Get some work done in our stylish lobby, or get in a workout at our state-of-the art fitness center and indoor pool. Relax in our beachfront hot tub, cocktail in hand or loved one in your arms.
Your little ones will delight in our supervised children’s programs and interactive pirate and mermaid shows. And the whole family will love our outdoor ‘Dive Inn’ movies.
Our hotel event space is perfect for weddings, meetings and reunions for groups both large and small.
And there’s no shortage of things to do, whether at the hotel or out in town. We’re located close to the best restaurants and nightlife on the coast. Outdoor adventures such as paddle boarding, parasailing, kayaking and jet-skiing are right on the beach.
Eager to explore? You can walk to the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park and Okaloosa Island Boardwalk. The Emerald Coast Convention Center is just across the street, and Eglin Air Force Base and Hurlburt Field are located minutes from the hotel. We’re a quick drive to fun family attractions like Big Kahuna’s Water and Adventure Park and The Track. You’ll find upscale shopping at nearby Destin Commons and Silver Sands Outlets. World class golf courses are nearby at the The Oaks and The Pines. Avid anglers can join one of many fishing charters at Destin Harbor.
Everything you need to have an unforgettable vacation is right here.
