Love Locals program gives back to community

Special to The Log

Henderson Park Inn and The Henderson have launched a collaborative “Love Locals” program as a show of support and appreciation for the Emerald Coast community.

The neighboring properties have curated a special, collective program featuring seasonal offers on accommodations, dining, and spa services. These specials are available for all full-time Florida residents living in Bay, Escambia, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa and Walton counties.

“We are always honored and humbled to welcome our local community,” said David Mars, general manager of The Henderson, which opened in 2016. “We know that our resort cannot be successful without local support, and truly look forward to extending genuine hospitality to each and every valued neighbor."

“The Emerald Coast’s locals are some of our most loyal guests,” added Henderson Park Inn and Beach Walk Café General Manager Dawn Moliterno, who is also director of strategy for The Henderson Beach Resort. “The Love Locals program is our way of showing how much we love and appreciate our community and gives us an opportunity to say more than just thank you.”

Those who enroll in the Love Locals program will receive discounted rates on room nights at Henderson Park Inn, as well as a complimentary bottle of wine with the purchase of two entrees at Beach Walk Café, the Inn’s signature restaurant.

The Henderson is offering members of the program special winter discounts on their garden, pool, or Gulf-view rooms, deluxe spa services at The Salamander Spa, and dining specials at Horizons, one of the resort’s renowned restaurants.

Beginning Jan. 10, Henderson Park Inn and The Henderson started hosting Sunset Happy Hours at Horizons every Thursday from 4-6 p.m. for those participating in the Love Locals program. Locals can enjoy their first drink for free and receive a complimentary appetizer card for Beach Walk Café while watching the sun set over the beach. There will also be live music performed by Matt Lyons and a selection of light hors d'oeuvres.
