WaterColor® Inn Welcomes New Amenities with the Expansion of WaterColor® Beach Club
WaterColor Inn guests can now enjoy two highly anticipated resort-wide projects, developed by the WaterColor Community Association: an expansion of WaterColor® Beach Club and of Camp WaterColor® – adding even more family-friendly outdoor recreation and dining options.
With the addition of six total WaterColor® resort pools, WaterColor® Inn now boasts the most pool accesses on Scenic Highway 30A, as well as a handful of new casual dining restaurants – providing families with plenty of options for basking in the Northwest Florida sun, just steps away from the area’s iconic sugar-white-sand beaches.
Resort Experiences for the Whole Family
The newly expanded WaterColor Beach Club boasts a new main pool with seating and lounge areas, a second pool deck with lounge seating and a third pool with zero-entry – all with unobstructed views of the Gulf. Guests will also have the chance to indulge in an array of brand-new resort dining venues, including Costa Chica and the newly renovated WaterColor® Grill, which will also serve the first- and second-level pool decks. During the day, WaterColor Grill will offer a fresh and casual menu of small and shared plates, handhelds, salads and bowls. At dinner, the menu will focus on Italian fare, complete with signature and build-your-own pizzas, hearty sandwiches and a selection of Italian wines; this menu is slated to be available for delivery within the WaterColor community later this year. The Club’s expansion also includes the addition of a brand-new casual fast-dining option, aptly named Beach Cow, anticipated to open later this summer. To-go drinks and cocktails will continue to be available at the beachside Tiki Bar.
Additionally, Camp WaterColor, which opened last year, is the ideal recreational destination for families, featuring the main Butterfly Pool with Monarch Slide; the Caterpillar Pool, a zero-entry pool and small children’s area and slide; and the Lazy Lizard Pool, a zero-entry lazy river. The pool areas are supervised by a lifeguard on duty. Camp WaterColor also features a playground and basketball court, in addition to The Canteen Restaurant & Bar, which serves a casual menu of food and drinks daily.
As a St. Joe Hospitality-managed property, WaterColor® Inn guests can also enjoy access to an array of St. Joe Hospitality’s membership club amenities, including, Origins Golf Club, and Shark’s Tooth Golf Club, Camp Creek Golf Club and WaterSound® Beach Club – offered through The Clubs by JOE℠.
The Flagship of the WaterColor Community: An Authentic 30A Beach Experience
Nestled within 500 acres of sugar-white sand beach and surrounded by pine forests alongside Western Lake, WaterColor® Inn has become a beloved multigenerational beach tradition for those traveling to Scenic Highway 30A in South Walton. Opened in 2002, the Forbes Four-Star and AAA Four-Diamond 60-room WaterColor® Inn perfectly encapsulates the spirit of an intimate beach getaway – while providing the functionality necessary for a family vacation. From the David Rockwell-designed accommodations to the pair of Adirondack chairs on each private balcony (at precise sunset-level), guests can expect to have a relaxing, comfortable and Gulf-inspired stay – their own seaside oasis.
