Destination`s Serene Setting for Golfers

Destination Hotels & Resorts (DH&R)—one of the largest independent hotel management companies in the U.S.—announced the opening of the luxurious 20-room Lodge at Ocean Hammock. This brings the total number of managed properties in the DH&R portfolio to 28.

Located squarely on the 18th-hole of the award-winning Jack Nicklaus Signature Designed Ocean Hammock® Golf Club and overlooking a pristine stretch of the Atlantic Ocean in Northeastern Florida, the Lodge at Ocean Hammock offers luxurious, full-service accommodations in an intimate atmosphere.

“An exciting property with terrific amenities in an amazing location, the Lodge at Ocean Hammock is a spectacular addition to DH&R’s portfolio of unique and distinctive properties,” said Charlie Peck, President and COO of DH&R. “As our business philosophy is built around managing exceptional hotels and resorts all which share a customer-intimate style, the Lodge is a perfect complement to our collection of luxury properties.

The Lodge is sure to be a big draw for discriminating golfers, who will have access to five golf courses, including the distinctive Ocean Hammock® Golf Club—named one of America’s Ten “Best New Upscale” courses by Golf Digest and chosen by Golf magazine as one of the “Top Ten New Courses You Can Play.”

Each guest room is special, with private balconies facing the golf course and the Atlantic. With a British West Indies look and feel, the rooms are cool and inviting, with amenities such as crisp Frette® bed linens and plush bathrobes, fluffy duvet covers, in-room safes, ample work areas, oversized desks and cordless dual-line telephones with voice-mail.


A private Beach & Swim Club, adjacent to the Lodge, affords guests massage and body treatment offerings, a fitness room, swimming pool, children’s pool, whirlpool spa and poolside bar and grille. And if nature is what’s desired, miles of unspoiled beach is just a “dune walkover” away.
