With views of the charming town, sparkling pool, or the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, the 55 guestrooms and suites are dressed in fresh, coastal colors with dark wood trimmings. From standard rooms to the Pearl Suite, you will find Keurig coffee makers and a minibar stocked with water, juices, and sodas to refresh you while catching up on your favorite shows on the Apple TV. Freshen up under the rainfall showers or in the soaking tub with Kerstin Florian spa products.
In your guestroom or suite, iPads with the Intelity App are at your disposal. Through the app you can make dinner reservations, order room service, or make a concierge request. Return in the evening to find turndown treats such as freshly baked goods.
The Pearl’s dining philosophy underscores the importance of going local. Fittingly, ingredients are sourced from regional growers, fishermen, and small, family-owned businesses within a 100-mile radius. Serving a fusion of Texan coast, Cuban, and Louisiana Creole cuisine, Havana Beach Bar and Grill is open all day, while Havana Beach Rooftop Lounge is the perfect base for a social afternoon of cocktails and cold beers.
Havana Beach Bar and Grill – A AAA Four Diamond restaurant, Havana Beach Bar & Grill is inspired by Hemingway’s favorite Old Town Havana haunt, El Floridita. Dine on Gulf soft shell crab in the lively dining room or order a refreshing mojito at the hand-carved mahogany bar.
Havana Beach Rooftop Lounge – Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, this rooftop lounge channels a chic beach club vibe with white sofas and long tables. Book a cabana and graze on a selection of light snacks such as gem lettuce wraps with braised chicken and guacamole.
After unwinding on your complimentary sun lounger on the hotel’s private beach, wander back to the adults-only pool for a refreshing dip. Right next door is the sea-view Spa Pearl, where you can melt under the bliss of the Pearl Stone Ritual, consisting of a crushed rice scrub, lemongrass and coconut essential oil treatment, and hot stone therapy. Sip your favorite cocktail on the rooftop, dine at the Havana Beach Bar and Grill, and plan a kayaking excursion.
If you are traveling with your family, drop the little ones off at the kid’s club at St. Joe Club & Resorts, or head to any of the other four pools. Hop on a complimentary bicycle and explore the trails around coastal dune lakes and pine forests, or kayak around the beautiful coastline. If golf is your sport, head to the private Tom Fazio-designed Camp Creek Golf Club, accessible if you are a guest of The Pearl. At the end of a leisurely, activity-packed day, cozy around a private beach bonfire with the stars twinkling overhead.
The Pearl is right on the beachfront in the pleasant town of Rosemary Beach, on Florida’s Emerald Coast along the Gulf of Mexico. The hotel is close to the town square’s sidewalk cafés, restaurants, and shops, and only 20 minutes from the many charms of Panama City Beach.
