The name LeCiel, derived from the French word sky, is a fitting description to illustrate the stunning views and tranquil environment that guests will experience during their stay. Located on the banks of the Choctawhatchee Bay, LeCiel draws on the Gulf Coast’s culture, colors and lush landscape for inspiration while the aesthetics of water, beach, bay, sun and sand sooth body and soul. In a chic $2 million transformation, interiors now boast rich mixtures of chrome, woods, copper, leather and fabrics. The element of water flows indoors with fountains, water walls and cool blue and green hues to set the tone of the experience before the guest even takes the first gaze onto the open bay. The boutique environment will provide the perfect getaway for the discernible leisure or group traveler. Accommodation choices include one-bedroom suites, king and double-double guest rooms with a hand-picked, sophisticated décor. One-bedroom suites will feature a full kitchen and dining room, and studio rooms will include a mini-fridge and microwave oven and Keurig in-room coffee maker. All guest rooms will have wireless internet, upgraded linens, terry robes, gourmet coffee, iPhone docking stations, flat screen televisions, spa quality toiletries and other comforts. This lovely boutique hotel will also feature a stunning entrance and lobby, as a bonus, the front desk will provide guests with the use of Binoculars for dolphin or bird watching. Guests can enjoy views of the bay from the lounge and listening to the sounds of water and relaxing with that special someone as the sun says good night over the bay. Other major features of LeCiel include the pool, with beverage service. In addition, LeCiel is just steps away from the Sandestin Day Spa, featuring an award winning full menu of spa and salon services.
