In time for its 30th anniversary, the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island’s renovation includes upgraded rooms and suites, refreshed meeting and event spaces, three new restaurants, and renewed resort experiences.
The Florida resort’s 446 guestrooms and suites were designed by Wimberly Interiors. The design draws upon the natural surroundings of the low country sea and skies. Horizon ocean views and sunsets over moody gray-green salt marshes, the landscape will be translated in the space with hue, patterns, and textures. References abound from the journey into the property, through to the view across the ocean. The sophisticated palette is grounded in the rich neutral tones of the land and accented with the colors of the sand, sea, and lush Spanish moss and live oaks.
The redesign also features multiple large-scale custom panoramic photographic artworks by Jorge de la Torriente, who captures the seamless connectivity of the low country sky to the sea during different times of the day. Local artisan crafts, such as the sweetgrass baskets, are captured and used as woven textures in the furniture and rugs and accented patterns throughout the design. Nautical and treasure-inspired details celebrate the islands history and location with metal tones and accents in public and private areas.
