When you book your stay at the Montage Palmetto Bluff, be sure to leave enough time to fit in as much, if not all of what this extraordinary South Carolina resort has to offer, it’s no easy task!
Found within a protected expanse of maritime forest that covers over 20,000 acres, shouldered by lagoons and the May River, Montage Palmetto Bluff’s lawn gardens and immediate surrounding countryside alone are an adventure-land of outdoor activities and excitement.
You have kayaking here, a boat club and yachts for hire, there are then complimentary bicycles to enjoy kilometres of forest trails here and within the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy, an onsite equestrian school, shopping outlets, 8 restaurants and bars, cafes and fantastic children’s facilities too.
That’s really just the start though, as on top of three swimming pools, sun patios and a wonderous spa, gym and fitness classes, you also have a Jack Nicklaus-designed championship golf course nearby, tennis and bowling clubs, a clay pigeon shooting range and, when looking to explore a little more of South Carolina’s many highlights, complimentary use of the hotel’s fleet of Cadillacs.
It keeps coming, as Montage Palmetto Bluff also hosts outdoor concerts in the summer and seasonal games, treasure hunts and get-togethers during festive periods, where locals enjoy it all as much as guests of the resort.
When you find yourself chatting around the firepit on an evening, tucking into fine dining South Carolina cuisine at Octagon Porch Restaurant or simply sailing on the lagoon, you really do feel part of the landscape while staying at Montage Palmetto Bluff. More than just an exhaustive list of outdoor activities and evening entertainment, however, Montage Palmetto Bluff both looks and feels every-bit the five-star part too, as each communal space, lounge, outdoor area and guestroom has its own atmosphere and look, with only the highest quality of finish and furnishings passing the test here.
So the gourmet cuisine is thoroughly refined, service effortless and spa as good as any top wellness retreat, yet villas and suites are all on the homely side in terms of their décor, though also very modern with it.
The result is that time in your room will be just another thing to love about this luxury home-from-home here, at Montage Palmetto Bluff, South Carolina.
Guestrooms, Suites, Cottage Suites and all accommodation options at Montage Palmetto Bluff each have an upmarket, homely feel to them, with many featuring a cosy fireplace, sofas, a veranda and in the larger options – a fully-equipped kitchen and dining room. The list of included extras does then differ slightly between the room categories, purely because of their size, layout, and therefore available space to make the most of, though every room comes with either king or queen-twin beds, marble bathrooms with a walk-in shower and often separate deep-soak tubs, an espresso machine, Wi-Fi and either an armchair seating area of full lounge space.
Salads, sandwiches, homemade donuts, fresh juice and an ideal spot by the pool, Fore & Aft is one of the more casual daytime lunch spots at Montage Palmetto Bluff.
Though predominantly a sophisticated lounge bar, with a healthy selection of bourbons and fine wine to accompany the live piano music at night, food is also served here, from sharing platters to gourmet burgers or homemade cakes to accompany your drinks.
The River House Lounge is a cosy little haunt to while away the evenings, either within the bar itself or beside an outdoor firepit; lovely.
