The Henderson – A Salamander Beach & Spa Resort

Destin, Florida

Destin Florida’s Finest Beach Resort

Inspiring. Iconic. Unforgettable. This is the essence of The Henderson, here on the sugar white sands of Destin’s breathtaking Gulf Coast.

Exuding the timeless, refined elegance of a seaside manor, The Henderson is resplendent with gabled rooflines, wooden shingles and sweeping panoramic and sunset views of the Gulf of Mexico and the adjacent Henderson Beach Preserve.

With 170 impeccably appointed and spacious guest rooms and eight suites—including sixteen specially designed spa rooms featuring a private spa elevator just steps from your door—guests enjoy premium amenities, luxurious bedding, designer touches and a tranquil palette of coastal-inspired hues.

Each guest room offers magnificent views of either the Gulf of Mexico and the adjacent nature preserve, shimmering and inviting pools framed by the waters of the Gulf, spectacular views of the nostalgic Crystal Beach cottages and the Gulf beyond, or the lush gardens and landscaped piazza.

Here at The Henderson, our goal is to ensure all of our guests experience an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind stay. Which is why we offer a variety of unique services included in our resort fee.
