Amelia Discovery Deal Lets Local Discover Things To Do on Amelia Island

Every time I have family or friends come visit from out of town I scratch my head on what to do to entertain them. There's plenty of things to do on Amelia Island but it's great if you're familiar with all the options and have enjoyed a few of them yourself right?  If you happen to find yourself in a similar situation then you're in luck, we're making it easy for you!  Whether you're a local resident playing tourist for the day (it's good to play where you live!) or you're entertaining out-of-town guests, ADD some fun to your plans with our new monthly Amelia Discovery Deal (ADD) to enjoy all Omni Amelia Island Plantation has to offer our neighbors.

How to Prepare Your Skin for the Summer Sun at our Amelia Island Spa

It's the prime of summer, do you have your summer glow yet?  You've been going to the beach or laying out by the pool (with protection of an adequate SPF of course) to get the tan that makes us all feel complete in the summer.  But are you ready to show off your skin?  Is your skin properly prepared for your summer tan?  The Spa at Omni Amelia Island Plantation offers a variety of treatments to help you get swimsuit ready and achieve the optimal summer glow.  Our Amelia Island spa has several treatments that will get your skin glowing to compliment that new bathing suit and have your skin beach ready in no time.  And this summer you can receive 15% off four of our spa treatments to help prepare your skin for your summer color!

Our neighborhood wine bar & bistro – Bar Zin

We have a variety of fabulous restaurants at Omni Amelia Island Plantation, but every now and then we wander off of our oceanfront resort property and enjoy some of the island's other eateries. I must admit four times out of five, we find ourselves at Bar Zin, one of the local's favorites. And obviously one of ours too! The restaurant is located in Palmetto Walk, just a couple of miles north of the resort. When we go for lunch I usually get the BLT with the truffle fries. Since French fries are one of my favorite food groups, I have tasted quite a few varieties - and I would put these up against any other! Of course the truffle oil makes them special, but being topped with parmesan cheese really puts them in a class by themselves.  And, although it isn't listed on the menu, you can add a fried egg to the BLT and it becomes decadently delicious. (Feel free to say Alayna recommended adding the fried egg!) Other lunch favorites of mine are the local shrimp salad roll, the oyster po boy and the bleu cheese burger. Yummy!
