Secluded Beachfront Resort near Championship Golf Courses
Hilton Head Island has gorgeous scenery: hilly dunes, oaks draped in spanish moss, and white-sand beaches that both Travel + Leisure and Frommer’s have hailed as some of the most beautiful in the world. There are more than 20 golf courses here, too, and that scenery has been worked into their designs; many were designed by legendary players such as Jack Nicklaus. Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort grants guests access to three of these championship courses.
The resort is also positioned between the beach and an 11-mile lagoon system. The beach is public but offers hotel guests private access to enjoy the sand and surf away from crowds and noise. Guest rooms here are some of the largest on the island; at 530 square feet, premier rooms have enough space for kitchenettes and also include private balconies overlooking the ocean or the resort’s tropical courtyard.
Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort has a variety of dining options, including an upscale café. HH Prime, the resort’s premier restaurant, specializes in upmarket steak and seafood; you can watch the chef prepare it through the open kitchen. Interior and exterior fireplaces help set the mood at dinnertime. Afterward, hit up the XO Lounge, which features live music and an extensive cocktail list.
Resort renovations are taking place through March 15. During this time the restaurants, spa, fitness center, and beach access will be available.
Hilton Head Island, South Carolina: Coastal Beauty, Golf Courses, and Historical Architecture
Located northeast of Savannah on the Atlantic coast, Hilton Head Island combines Southern elegance with relaxed oceanfront living. Its subtropical climate—with highs in the 60s during January—makes it a haven for outdoor sports all year round. Kayakers, yachters, and bottlenose dolphins all make use of the water around the beaches. Golf is also a major draw; dozens of courses are scattered throughout the island, which is the site of an annual event on the PGA Tour.
Hilton Head boasts more than 200 restaurants, serving both Lowcountry Southern cuisine and gourmet international fare. The town of Bluffton (about a 30-minute drive from the hotel) is lined with art galleries and antique shops.
