Omni Amelia Island Plantation
When Omni bought the 1,350-acre Amelia Island Plantation last year, they revamped the 249-room hotel with new decor and kept the spacious living areas in the one- to four-room villa options. The grounds include three golf courses, a private beach, 23 tennis courts, a fitness center, three pools, and nine restaurants. The on-site Kids Camp has games and a sea turtle program. To pick up last-minute gifts and see Santa, swing by the shopping village’s 11 boutiques.
DON'T MISS: the town of Fernandina Beach, a vision of gingerbread houses and casual seafood restaurants; 888/444-6664 or omnihotels.com.
