A re-imagined resort portfolio.
When meeting planners consider hotel companies that offer a variety of resorts, if Omni Hotels & Resorts isn't top of mind, it might be time for them to take another look. Omni’s ever-expanding resort collection includes 45 unique properties across North America - from beach escapes to golf getaways and spa retreats - all with state-of-the-art meeting space and impeccable service.
For beach meetings, the 404-room Omni Amelia Island Plantation has kept generations of guests coming back year after year. The 1,350-acre property is currently undergoing an $85-million re-imagination that will add 155 new rooms, a multi-tiered pool complex, and a beachside restaurant and bar, plus an expanded conference center with more than 70,000 square feet of function space that can accommodate groups of up to 1,200 guests.
With panoramic views of the Santa Catalina Mountains, world-class golf, and a full-service spa, Omni Tucson National Resort is a favorite with both golf enthusiasts and meeting attendees. After a recent $30-million renovation, the resort now includes 128 guest rooms and haciendas and 10,500 square feet of versatile meeting space. When the business day concludes, guests can tee off on greens that have hosted PGA tour events played by pros like Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer.
Set amid Pennsylvania’s scenic Cumberland Valley, the 216-room Omni Bedford Springs Resort has a rich history dating back 200 years, when settlers discovered natural springs on the resort’s grounds. Today, guests can combine work and play with the property’s championship golf course, award-winning Springs Eternal Spa, and 20,000-square-foot conference center.
The Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate offers everything groups need for an all-in-one destination meeting, including 767 rooms and villas, 15 acres of recreation, multiple golf courses, and state-of-the-art meeting facilities. The resort is also putting the finishing touches on 46,000 square feet of new meeting and function space. When completed in early 2013, the resort will offer a total of 128,800 square feet of meeting space, including three ballrooms and 46 meeting rooms.
Now when groups book multiple meetings at any Omni resort, meeting planners can earn multiple rewards, including master-account rebates, F&B discounts, special attrition clauses, and more.
