Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort
Amidst its 1,350 acres of sprawling green space, Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort guests and members will find daily programming highlighting the property’s commitment to wellness. Omni houses two fitness facilities: The Racquet Park Health & Fitness Center features an indoor heated lap pool and a myriad of $15 classes while the equipment-driven hotel gym remains available to resort guests 24-hours a day. Those seeking a bit more privacy may request in-room fitness kits, which include stretch bands, dumbbells, a kettlebell, a mat, and a stress ball.
For daytime retreaters, The Spa and Salon at Amelia Island Plantation soothes the body and spirit. Here, traditional treatments are met with globally celebrated methodologies and organic or regionally sourced products.
The Spa’s Japanese Facial Massage combines acupuncture with massage, softening the face, head, and shoulders. Chinese reflexology (an ancient foot-to-organ pressure point technique) and Japanese Reiki (a light-touch energy healing practice) can both be found inside The Spa’s transformative walls. Once treatments are complete, visitors may decompress inside the garden-side, coed lounge or opt for a leisurely stroll.
Tickled with a bit of childhood nostalgia, The Spa’s unique “tree house yoga” takes place Saturday mornings at 10:00 AM for $18. This intimate gathering allows the public to namaste within Amelia’s iconic treetops. While popular, the aerial space holds only 8-10 people per class, so admittance is first come, first serve.
Omni’s wellness focuses have also trickled down into their food service, exemplified by The Sprouting Project, an onsite organic garden and aquaponic greenhouse. The Sprouting Project’s seasonal produce, herbs, and apiary are under Executive Chef Daven Wardynski’s discerning watch. Wardynski’s dedication to shifting food perspectives is a pillar for local sustainability. Wardynski and Omni organize interactive farm-to-table dinners monthly. Wardynski and his staff also lead small group tours of the expanding Sprouting Project; depending on the time of year, perusers might nibble on freshly picked peppers or waft the scent of budding Meyer lemons.
