Amazing Outdoor Spaces is an occasional series by ALHI featuring outdoor venues throughout our diverse collections of independent luxury hotels. Look for more Amazing Outdoor Spaces features coming soon.
While flexible, functional indoor space that can be configured to your business needs is essential, we know that outdoor space is what can really wow your attendees and set the stage for a memorable event. Fresh air, stunning landscapes and interesting landscaping are just a few common threads for the spaces we've chosen to feature from our Seaside Collection.
To that end, we have selected a handful of ALHI properties in the U.S. and Bermuda with spectacular outdoor seaside venues to inspire your next event.
Let's Take it Outside
Overlooking the Pacific Ocean and a stone's throw from world-famous golf courses on the Monterey Peninsula about two hours south of San Francisco, the Inn at Spanish Bay boasts plenty of indoor meeting space, but the outdoor space really shines. Gather around the fire pits on the outdoor terrace and be serenaded by the inn's own bagpiper, or set up a truly memorable experience on the 18th hole of Pebble Beach Golf Links with unobstructed views of Carmel's white sand beach and the hilly landscape beyond. Wherever you choose, the Inn at Spanish Bay team will ensure your event is nothing less than legendary.
The aloha spirit will envelop you and the sky is the limit when you host your event at Turtle Bay Resort on Oahu's North Shore. The resort offers plenty of breathtaking outdoor venues from which to choose, each complimented by palm trees, warm trade winds and ceilings of tropical skies. One spectacular spot to host an event and sip a mai tai is Kuilima Point with views of nothing but the Pacific Ocean and sky stretching out as far as the eye can see.
Let your cares float away when you arrive at The Lodge & Club Ponte Vedra Beach on Florida's Historic Coast, between Jacksonville and St. Augustine. Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the resort's outdoor spaces - warmed by the sun, framed by swaying palm trees and rolling sand dunes - provide an instant escape for your attendees. Just steps away from the powdery sand is the intimate Ocean Lawn. Or transport your slightly larger group to the Mediterranean under twinkling lights at The Trellis, another space with extensive seaside views.
Whether hosting a small board meeting or a larger group event - and everything in between - the experienced team at Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club in Cape Cod will ensure everything is seamless from start to finish. The intimate Lawrence Terrace boasts views of the Atlantic Ocean, and bigger groups can spread out on the Mansion Front Lawn's five acres. For a truly memorable experience, take advantage of the resort's private beach and bonfire, lit just for you and your group.
Your attendees will be dazzled by the location and impeccable service when they arrive at the Hamilton Princess Hotel & Beach Club. On the grounds of the hotel, the Regency Terrace, Flagpole Terrace, Marina and Pitts Bay Point are stunning outdoor settings on the water's edge that will surely impress. You'll really turn heads, however, when you hop aboard jitneys for an event at the Princess Beach Club on the South Shore in Southampton. Whether toes in the pink sands or from a plateau overlooking the ocean, your event will stay with attendees long after they've left the island.
