Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island expands team
The AAA Four Diamond-rated Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island has expanded its sales and catering team with the addition of Lindsay Wooten as Conference Services Manager. Nestled along the coast of South Carolina’s scenic Hilton Head Island, the lushly landscaped beachfront resort provides beautiful views of the Atlantic Ocean, access to miles of pristine white-sand beach, an array of on-site amenities, 23,000 square feet of flexible function space for up to 1,100 guests, and picturesque outdoor venues.
In her new position, Wooten is responsible for coordinating meetings, conventions and events at the 11-acre, award-winning resort. Prior to joining Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island, she was Catering Sales Manager at The Ridge Hotel in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Wooten’s extensive experience also includes serving as Director of Catering at Miramonte Indian Wells Resort & Spa in Indian Wells, California; Catering and Conference Services Manager at Vail Cascade Resort & Spa in Vail, Colorado; and Event Sales Manager at Sawgrass Marriott Golf Resort & Spa in Jacksonville, Florida. In addition, she spent two years in Thailand as a fifth grade teacher at a government school in the English program. She is a graduate of the University of Central Florida, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Hospitality Management, with a concentration in Event Management.
“Lindsay is an outstanding addition to our team,” said the resort’s General Manager Jay Wiendl. “She is a dedicated and dynamic conference services executive who brings exceptional experience and a passion for serving our groups and guests. She will be a valued resource for our clients.”
Featuring 340 spacious guestrooms and suites with luxurious bedding, the resort has the full-service Arum Spa, five on-site restaurants and bars, a zero-entry lagoon swimming pool, heated shade pool and hot tub, 24-hour fitness center, state-of-the-art audio visual technology, concierge services and scenic lush tropical gardens.
Island excursions include bicycle rentals with 50 miles of paths for bicycling and hiking along the shore, world-class golf, tennis on 20 courts at the adjacent Van Der Meer Tennis Academy, and kayaking or paddle boarding on some of the best beaches in the country.
Add in the impressive array of recreational options available on Hilton Head Island, and it is easy to see why the destination is such a popular choice for groups. In addition to being voted the “No. 1 island in the continental U.S.” for the third year in a row in Travel + Leisure magazine’s prestigious “World’s Best Awards,” Hilton Head Island also was recently voted the “#1 Beach Town in the South” by the readers of Southern Living magazine, and the “No. 1 island” in Condé Nast Traveler magazine’s acclaimed “Reader’s Choice Awards.”
