AMELIA ISLAND, FL – In 1972, real estate developer Charles Fraser ambitiously set out to create a residential resort community that would exist "in harmony with nature." Working hand-in-hand with a group of naturalists, Fraser and his team began studying the local habitat of a small barrier island just off the Northeast Florida coast. The goal was to preserve the tidal marshes, oceanfront dunes, and natural live oaks that made the environment so captivating. Fraser's vision eventually led to the construction of The Amelia Island Plantation. Nearly forty years later, Omni Hotels & Resorts purchased the iconic resort community and broke ground on an extensive $85 million "Re-Imagination" project. This renovation brought Fraser's vision into the 21st Century, successfully enhancing the aesthetic of the property without sacrificing its authenticity. Guests who had been coming back to Amelia Island Plantation for years because of its natural beauty suddenly had a whole new list of reasons to stay at Florida's award-winning island destination.
