The Luxury Set along the sugar-white shores of the Florida Panhandle’s Emerald Coast, the Watercolor Inn & Resort boasts 500 acres of beach and preserved coastal-pine forests. Designed by architect David Rockwell (the master hand behind L.A.’s Kodak Theater and set to helm Paris’ first W Hotel this year), each of the 60 spacious rooms gaze out onto seaside sand dunes and harbor king-size beds dressed in Egyptian-cotton bedding; some have outdoor showers and patio cabanas, while tower rooms tout wrap-around terraces.
