About Effie

When we talk about charm, service, and a generous spirit, we do so with the utmost sincerity. These are not sentiments to impress, they come from the heart. This is a new hotel experience, but we come from a deeply rooted culture of genuine southern hospitality.


Tram Service

The fast, easy, and fun way to get around Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort is also free for guests! Park your car and forget about it—our tram system will take you virtually anywhere on the resort, from the beach to the bay and everywhere in between: The Village of Baytowne Wharf, tennis courts, golf courses, and more. The tram runs on two continuous loops, departing each stop approximately every 30 minutes or less. Conveniently, there's a tram stop right out front of Hotel Effie, situated between Effie and the Grand Building.
