PIRATES & PRINCESSES WELCOME AT THE OMNI AMELIA ISLAND PLANTATION
Luxury Coastal Island Resort Invites Families to Experience the Isle of Eight Flags
AMELIA ISLAND, FL (February 21, 2012) – Tucked beneath canopied live oaks and surrounded by lush saltwater marshes and the sparkling Atlantic Ocean, the Omni Amelia Island Plantation introduces the “Pirates & Princesses” package, encouraging family togetherness while embracing the vibrant history of Northeast Florida’s barrier island, characterized by pirates, princesses, soldiers and fisherman. Whether treasure hunting or storytelling around a beach fire, families can don pirate patches and sparkly tiaras now through December 31, 2012.
Little ones are greeted with pirate patches and royal tiaras at check-in, while a fun pack of beach gear waits in their room. After unpacking, families can unwind and curl up for a private movie screening with in-room popcorn. The following morning, vacationers transform into adventurers, visiting the on-site Nature Center to learn about Amelia Island’s natural treasures. Explorers uncover the buried jewels of the 1,350-acre resort, hunting for native seashells and shark teeth where live oaks meet the Atlantic coast. After treasure seeking, parents and kids seek the sun, toting a fun pack of beach gear to the resort’s 3.5 miles of wide, uncrowded beaches. Mom and daughter enjoy princess talk and pedicures at the nature-inspired spa, or father and son explore maritime forests as they reel in silver carp and large mouth bass at Aury Island, the property’s hidden fishing gem.
In the evening, parents slip away to a romantic dinner at The Verandah, savoring a seasonally inspired three-course dinner with locally caught seafood, while young princesses and pirates enjoy their very own “Just for Kids” dinner party. After dinner, families can stroll the dune-swept shores before settling into beach chairs around a fire for marshmallow roasting and s’more making.
