Omni hotels & resorts to reflag oceanfront resort on hilton head island

Upscale Beach Resort in South Carolina to Become an Omni

IRVING, TX (December 12, 2011)Omni Hotels & Resorts announced today that the luxury hotel brand will rebrand the Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort as part of a long term management agreement. Under the new agreement, the property will officially become the Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort on February 1, 2012. 

The resort has been successfully managed within Omni’s overall portfolio under its sibling company, Allegiance Hospitality, since 2003. During that time, the resort achieved the AAA four-diamond designation. In 2012, the property will now launch a significant, multi-phased renovations plan as part of the transition to further distinguish it from the competition. 

In keeping with Omni’s strategic growth plans in the premier destination resort segment, this latest addition compliments the brand’s acclaimed resorts along the East Coast, including the Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, NH, the Omni Bedford Springs Resort in Bedford, PA and Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate, FL. It also joins ranks with the Omni Amelia Island Plantation, which was acquired by Omni Hotels & Resorts in September 2010 and broke ground last month on an $85 million re-development and expansion. 

Located on Hilton Head Island on the banks of South Carolina, the beachfront resort showcases beautiful views from its 295 guest rooms, the largest on the island, as well as one- and two-bedroom suites. The property has over 15,000 square feet of meeting and event space, including beach front venues, numerous restaurants, the Ocean Tides Spa and pools with private cabanas. As part of the prestigious Palmetto Dunes community, the resort offers a 10-mile lagoon system for kayaking or canoeing, bike trails, 25 tennis courts and 36 holes of championship golf. 

“We are pleased to put the Omni flag on this resort given its beautiful views, gracious accommodations, broad range of amenities and commitment to the Omni service standards,” said Mike Deitemeyer, president of Omni Hotels & Resorts. We believe that the property is a natural extension our upscale resort collection and exemplifies our commitment to deliver memorable experiences to our guests.”
