Myrtle Beach, SC (PRWEB) December 21, 2006
Island Vista, Myrtle Beach's newest luxury resort nestled in the heart of the Grand Strand's Golden Mile, recently celebrated a grand opening. Offering more than 149 elegant oceanfront suites, a first class restaurant and an outdoor pool complex reminiscent of the Roman Aqueducts, the Island Vista is raising the bar for accommodations throughout Coastal South Carolina.
In 2004, the owners of the historic Sea Island Inn, a Myrtle Beach landmark for more than 25 years, decided to officially close their doors and make way for a larger more elegant resort property. Two years later, the square-foot, completely new Island Vista is being introduced to the Myrtle Beach community.
Dedicated to preserving the style and grace of the Sea Island Inn, the Island Vista's elegant design features architecture reminiscent of Howard Mizner and his style crafted in South Florida in the 1930's.
Island Vista's luxurious one, two, three and four bedroom suites each feature private balconies and panoramic views of the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. Offering larger suites than most accommodations in the area, suites at Island Vista range in size from 677 to 2,300 square feet and are highlighted by elegant traditional furnishings such as shuttered headboards, rich draperies and bed coverings, tile flooring, granite countertops, plush carpet and floor-to-ceiling windows offering amazing ocean views. Exclusive in-suite amenities include high-speed Internet, washer-dryer units, fully appointed kitchens and Jacuzzi tubs.
Island Vista's gourmet Low Country restaurant, The Cypress Room, is located off the hotel's main lobby and features an array of European-infused Lowcountry dining selections including signature dishes such as pan seared pork chops with apple and cornbread stuffing, crispy fried oysters with roasted red pepper tarter sauce, bourbon creamed corn and sweet potato hash, and pecan-crusted trout with herbed butter noissette served over Basmati rice with wild mushroom ragout. Serving breakfast and dinner daily, The Cypress Room also features a full service bar providing alternate seating as well as a selective range of the finest wines, liqueurs, domestic and international beers and specialty cocktails.
The Resort's pool complex features an indoor and outdoor pool area with a wide range of water amenities. Unlike any other on the Grand Strand, Island Vista's indoor pool area reflects a serene Romanesque theme accentuated by a cascading waterfall pouring into a 200 foot lazy river. The indoor area also features a large pool, a Jacuzzi and a kids' pool featuring pop jets and water games. The indoor facility opens to the outdoors during the summer months and is fully enclosed during the winter. Island Vista's two outdoor pools overlook the Atlantic Ocean and features pop jets, leaping streams of water and a splash pool.
The perfect destination for private parties, business meetings and special events, Island Vista specializes in groups of all sizes. From small business meetings in the restaurant's private dining room to large receptions in the Resort's conference center, Island Vista's more than 2,200 square feet of meeting space can accommodate up 200 guests. The Resort's expert sales staff is available to assist every guest in planning a perfect meeting or convention while the catering staff can tailor a menu of any caliber to suit every occasion.
Assistance in securing reservations for group activities such as dining, entertainment, theatres, sight-seeing tours and golf tee times is also available and is gladly provided by the Hotel's event staff.
Other amenities offered at Island Vista include a fitness center, covered parking, porter service, a tiki bar, children's activities and some of the most pristine beaches on the South Carolina coastline.
"The Island Vista truly embodies Lowcountry elegance in a relaxing, family friendly resort atmosphere," said Stephen Chapman, General Manager of the Island Vista. "The Island Vista provides guests with luxurious and spacious suites and pristine ocean views as well as a host of outstanding amenities. Island Vista is one of the finest oceanfront properties on the Grand Strand and so far the responses from our guests have been overwhelmingly positive. I look forward to many years of great success as we continue to exceed our guests' highest expectations."
