WaterColor Inn

WaterColor Inn is nestled on nearly 500 acres of sugar-white sand beach, is surrounded by 1,400 linear feet of beachfront and pine forests alongside Western Lake, the state’s second-largest naturally occurring coastal dune lake. It is one of two hotels in South Walton garnering a coveted Forbes Four-Star Rating and AAA Four-Diamond Rating. This achievement is highly regarded and only attainable through consistent expert service and superior standards.  Owned and operated by St. Joe Club & Resorts, WaterColor Inn has amenities that extend throughout the resort and beyond, including private golf club access at Camp Creek and Shark’s Tooth.

The 60-room Inn is situated directly on the Gulf of Mexico and offers well-appointed accommodations designed by David Rockwell- perfectly encapsulating the spirit of an intimate beach getaway, while providing the functionality necessary for a family vacation.  WaterColor Inn captures the essence of a tranquil getaway with intimate spaces, and plenty of gathering spaces for a romantic getaway or a large gathering.   Several on-site dining options are available including The Gathering Spot, WaterColor Beach Club Grill and Fish Out of Water, an award-winning restaurant with a stunning gulf front view and impeccable service.

For beachside wellness in an intimate setting, guests will also find a full menu of spa treatments at the WaterColor InnSpa. Men and women may choose from a plethora of revitalizing body treatments, refining facials with natural ingredients, and both targeted and full-body massages—all of which can be tailored to the individual.
