Where are you when you’re on vacation? This question can be taken two ways: where are you physically or where are you mentally? Most of us need an escape physically and mentally. Everyone needs a break from the mundane, and Hammock Beach Resort is your answer; offering exciting and peaceful resort life right at your fingertips.

Getting away from it all and having peace of mind, Hammock Beach Resort provides for both of these necessities; saving us from the hectic world in which we live. Hammock Beach Resort is an oceanfront oasis.

The Resort

The resort life is sweet at Hammock Beach Resort. There’s nothing more sublime than a getaway in every sense of the word. Play golf, eat at stellar restaurants, pamper yourself at the Spa, and alternate between beachside and poolside – whatever your pleasure. In day-to-day living, it’s hard to recall a time when you’re not caught up in your thoughts – to do lists, work, etc. At the Hammock Beach Resort, you’re biggest concerns will be whether to start the day playing at the Oceanfront Jack Nicklaus Golf course, or to enjoy basking in the sun in a lounge chair on the beach. Bring your family or just that one special person, the Resort compliments both possibilities.

Having hosted two PGA Tour events in the past, there are two immaculate golf courses to choose from, designed by Tom Watson and Jack Niklaus. The Ocean Course is a Jack Nicklaus Signature design, where you can tee off oceanfront. The Conservatory Course is a Tom Watson Signature design, which has a beautiful and challenging terrain.

The resort has a Fantasy Pool Complex. Let’s put it like this: everyone will be happy. Truly – everyone. There are separate upper and lower level pools. This means that there is an adult pool, a swimming pool sized spa, a zero-entry beach pool, water slide, a full food and beverage service, a poolside bar, and more.

Don’t want to take a break from your work-out schedule? No worries. The fully-equipped Fitness Center provides a fitness class schedule; some of these classes include: Vinyasa Flow, Broga, Gentle Hatha, Body Alignment, and Broga Yoga; Body Sculpt Weight Training; Core Crazy Abs; High Intensity Interval Training; and more.

There are hourly activities scattered around the hotel; usually these activities take place near the Children’s Pool Deck, Pool Main Gate, or Champions Event Lawn. Entertain yourself with foos ball, ping pong, bicycles, tennis, or the putting green. Of course, there are always more secluded areas as well if you just want peace and quiet. Interestingly, the indoor pool links to the gym and Spa. Some of your biggest decisions will include whether to switch from the beach to the pool, or vice versa.

The Spa at Hammock Beach Resort

IMG_8718The Spa offers numerous massages, treatments, and services, such as the ‘Warm Coconut Stone Massage’, ‘Alpha Lipoic Facial’, and the ‘Hammock Beach Pedicure’. The possibilities are endless. We received the ‘Hammock Massage’, Hammock Beach Resort’s signature massage. With elements of Lomi Lomi, hot stone, aromatherapy and Swedish massage, the Hammock Massage was remarkable. Lisette, my masseuse, provided a state-of-the-art spa treatment. We left feeling complete and refreshed.

The Oceanfront Suite

We stayed in an Oceanfront Suite. The Suite was fully-equipped, so much so, that we were hesitant to leave the Suite. The rooms were capacious, comfortable, and elegantly designed. Each of the three bedrooms had a en suite bathroom, as well as a walk-in closet. There was also an additional bathroom in the hall.

The Master bedroom had two walk-in closets, a shower and a jacuzzi bath. The Floridian-designed room possessed a four-post bed. The room, airy and stylish, was the perfect harbor for a sweet night’s rest.

The modern and spacious kitchen contained premium ‘Viking’ appliances, and possessed all of the amenities required for an enjoyable stay.

The open floor plan from the kitchen to the dining table, and into the living area, was ideal. Past the living area, was the balcony, with sweeping views of the ocean and resort. We were spoiled beyond belief.

Dining at the ‘Atlantic Grille’

We spent one of our evenings dining at the lovely oceanfront Atlantic Grille. With contemporary world cuisine, there’s nothing quite like the sound of the waves crashing as you dine. In the distance we could see kites flying from down the beach, who wouldn’t be in their element?

To begin our meal, we ordered the Black Lentil Hummus as well as the Strawberry and Serrano Chili Gazpacho. The Black Lentil Hummus was accompanied with Fried Pita. The Fried Pita was a fabulous touch to the hummus, so delicious we had to pace ourselves for our main course.

The Strawberry and Serrano Chili Gazpacho was summery and refreshing. A nice starter after a day spent waterside at the pool and the beach.

For our Entrées, we chose the Shrimp and Grits and the New York Strip with a Brown Sugar and Cayenne Rub. The Shrimp and Grits was stellar. The composition of taste and visual elements were both smooth and classic. The combination of Brown Sugar and Cayenne Rub on a New York Strip was marvelous. The kick of the Cayenne Rub balanced well with the Brown Sugar, creating a masterful blend of sweet and savory.

For sides, we chose the Sweet Potato and Plantain Hash, as well as the Pommes Frites. Perfect compliment to our Entrées.

For Dessert, we ordered the Mason Jar Butterscotch Bread Pudding and Raspberry-White Chocolate Tiramasu. Although the Raspberry-White Chocolate Tiramasu was delicious, the Mason Jar Butterscotch Bread Pudding stole the show for desserts.

With tremendous views, the sound of the waves, and a relaxed ambiance, we recommend dining at the Atlantic Grille.
