Hotel Information –

ASTA requests that room reservations be made only by registered attendees and reserves the right to cancel reservations made by anyone who is not registered to attend the meeting. The ASTA room rate is available through Monday, March 4, 2019, based on availability of rooms. ASTA will maintain a waitlist if our room block fills up before the hotel reservation deadline.

Reservations can be made by phone at 888-261-6161 or proceed to hotel reservation below to go directly to online reservations and confirm your stay. If you are making a reservation by phone, be sure to mention the American Spice Trade Association to receive the group rate.

Proceed to Hotel Reservation
The ASTA room block at The Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort is $295 plus tax single/double occupancy. There are two room types available in ASTA’s room block – Resort rooms and Villa rooms for the same rate of $295. All rooms are oceanfront and the villa rooms will be located in the Sandcastle Villas, which is located close to the main building. When booking, be sure to check availability for both room types (there is a button for each room type on the Omni reservations page). 

Booking Advisory
We have been made aware that companies claiming to be travel/housing services have contacted some attendees to offer a lower rate. The Omni Amelia Island Plantation Resort is the only official host hotel and ASTA does not use housing agencies. We strongly recommend you do not book your hotel room with these services. Attendees should make their reservations directly with the hotel using the secure ASTA booking link above.

ASTA cannot guarantee that rooms booked through any third-party service are legitimate reservations.
