Learn Everything About Our Oceanfront Hotel In Wildwood Crest
Visually stunning with its natural beauty and gently kissed by the sun and sea, ICONA Diamond Beach is consistently rated among the top 4-star Wildwood Crest hotels (big thanks to our guests for their great reviews of the ICONA experience!) Developed by world-renowned Achristavest, which creates iconic homes and resorts so unique they are impossible to duplicate, ICONA sits on the private and pure white sand of Diamond Beach, NJ.
At our oceanfront hotel in Wildwood Crest we believe in the peace that the water brings. We match that feeling by bringing the same tranquility inside each of our beautifully designed hotel suites. From the soothing color scheme, to the specialty tile, to the 4-star amenities each detail was integrated with your utmost comfort in mind.
Keeping little more than the beautiful beachfront location and aging but iconic modern Art Deco façade of its predecessor, the 1970s- era Pier 6600 Hotel, developer Eustace Mita, the chairman and CEO of Achristavest LLC, tapped noted interior designer and “Hotel Impossible” regular Blanche Garcia to “envision the best South Jersey beach resort.” Garcia’s thoughtful architectural analysis of the setting inspired the building’s rebirth as ICONA, a luxurious Wildwood Crest hotel that blended naturally with its environment.
Everything from sunrises to sunsets, sweeping starlit skies and even the movements of the ocean’s tides was carefully studied before developing plans for ICONA Diamond Beach.
Once Mita approved the plans, construction teams literally stripped the property down to its steel beams. In a record 189 days, they combined 200 small and non-descript hotel rooms into 108 beautifully appointed meeting venues, suites and “studios,” complete with luxurious finishes, galley-style kitchens, custom-designed furniture and flat-screen TV’s.
Fully re-built in 2013, with beautiful suites by the Travel Channel’s celebrity designer, Blanche Garcia, ICONA Diamond Beach launched its first full season in May of 2014. Guests love the exclusivity of the safely guarded beach – one of the few private beaches anywhere in New Jersey – where you can spread out your towel, soak up the sun, and listen to the rhythmic crash of the waves. Sip a delicious cocktail and relax as your little ones enjoy the waters of the Atlantic with the security of ICONA Resort’s lifeguards on duty. Ample space for beach activities and sports, such as volleyball and soccer is sure to please the young and young at heart. Enjoy a meal in Coastal Blue, the on-site restaurant, or if you just can’t leave the sunshine, have it served to you poolside!
