Memphis Downtowner November/December 2017 : Page 7

TRAVEL Nature Inspired Henderson Beach Resort The Henderson Park Inn Corner Suite D estin is always a favorite getaway for Memphians. But some may not be aware of a special gem tucked away at the very end of Scenic Highway 98 — the idyllic Henderson Beach Resort. Located on the border of the 208-acre environmentally protected Henderson State Park, the resort looks out over the protected dunes of the park and offers a measure of seclusion and the most magnificent unspoiled views of the Gulf. Upon arrival to Henderson Park Inn, the matriarch of the resort, guests begin to understand why it was named Florida’s Best Romantic Getaway and America’s Most Romantic Hotel. The Inn itself is best described as a modern luxury boutique hotel but a step back in time in romantic beach ambience. Each exquisitely decorated suite is distinctive from the other and features breathtaking gulf views — most with balconies overlooking the emerald-green waters of the Gulf of Mexico, flat-screen TVs, and luxurious bedding. No detail is overlooked. The attentive staff caters to your every need from the moment you enter. You are greeted in your room with romantic music, a bottle of wine and two glasses, a vase of roses, as well as grapes and gourmet chocolates. And the amenities have only just begun. No one under 25 is allowed to stay there, and everything except dinner is included in the cost of a room. You’ll have a 24-hour snack station, full breakfast with omelet bar where Chef Greg will prepare yours to order, picnic boxed lunches, complimentary happy hour, complimentary bikes and kayas, and beach chairs and umbrella. In the evening, if you’re looking for exceptional dining, The Henderson Park Inn’s onsite restaurant, Beach Walk Café is pure indulgence in romantic waterfront dining on one of the most breathtaking settings on the Gulf Coast. For the most romantic dinner on the gulf and possibly of your life, reserve Beach Walk Café’s Toes in the Sand dining experience. Enjoy a private table at the water’s edge under the stars with a dedicated server and watch the sun set into the gulf for a truly memorable evening!
