Hotels in Amelia Island

Hotels in Amelia Island range from charming inns to luxury golf resorts, but every option is close to the beach and gets the same access to beautiful Florida sunshine. Amelia Island hotels that cater to spa-goers and golfers are the Ritz-Carlton and Omni Amelia Island Plantation, both of which offer elegant rooms, fine dining, and of course, world-famous golf courses. You can easily spend the morning on the green and the afternoon on the sand. For hotels in Amelia Island with a bit more Southern charm, try the popular Elizabeth Pointe Lodge, a Queen Anne-style estate, or the Fairbanks House, a beautiful Victorian B&B. Many have beach access so you can while away the hours just steps from your room, or simply hop on a bike to get to and from your accommodations while exploring the scenery the island has to offer.
