The Henderson launches local VIP program

Special to The Sun

About one month ago The Henderson, a Salamander Beach & Spa Resort, opened its doors in Destin. Today, the newest hotel on the Gulf Coast announces the launch of its exclusive Loved Locals VIP program.

Local residents of Florida’s Emerald Coast who reside between Panama City and Pensacola are welcome to register online with The Henderson to become a Loved Local.

“We have received such a warm welcome from our community, we are thrilled to give a little back to our loyal locals,” said Douglas Hustad, general manager for The Henderson. “We invite everyone along the Emerald Coast to come join us with their family and friends to fully experience all we have to offer. We hope you consider us your home away from home.”

In exchange for their name, address and email address on the online sign up form, The Henderson will issue a signature membership card that reads: “I Am a Loved Local at The Henderson.” The green Loved Local membership card can be presented at the hotel’s dining, spa and retail outlets for the cardholder to enjoy exclusive discounts and special offers year round.

Once you register online at, your Loved Locals card will be available for pick up at the Guest Services desk within 24 hours.

The Loved Locals offers will change every quarter, providing new reasons to return again and again to enjoy all The Henderson has to offer. Those who register will hear first hand about next season’s offers via email. The current Loved Locals program offers will be listed on the registration landing page.
