The Sweet Southern Hospitality Resort
Traveler: Jessica Perrozzi
Location: Bluffton, South Carolina
Hotel: Montage Palmetto Bluff
Tucked away from the bustle of Hilton Head Island lies a tranquil escape in Bluffton, South Carolina that sits on 22 acres of land. In order to reach this peaceful destination, you can drive along the scenic route from Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport or Hilton Head Island itself, where you will see beautiful multi-million-dollar homes and maybe even experience some of the wildlife of the south! Upon your arrival you will be greeted with some of the best southern hospitality at the Montage Palmetto Bluff.
Jessica describes her experience at the Montage Palmetto Bluff so eloquently,
The moment you set foot on property, you feel like you’ve turned back time and are looking at the land through the eyes of the land’s former owner in the early 1900s (just now complete with a stunning 5-star resort!). There are incredible preserved pieces of the original four-story home right on the Village Square where it once stood and is now used as a perfect area for a Welcome Reception. The rich history of the land plays into the beauty that is so evident.
So what activities does this serene resort have to offer?
With the conservationists and guides provided, they will take you on a journey to create new memories in the great outdoors. Whether you like to drop a line for fishing, go for a hike (or two!), explore the land with a golf cart or bike rental, or maybe take a trail ride on one of the horses, Montage Palmetto Bluff offers all those activities.
You won’t have to compromise on your workout routine since a guide to the best trail runs is available and the greenery of the golf course will allure you to take a few swings. But perhaps a shooting range is more up your alley. With 13 sporting clay stations, you will not only be able to learn how to shoot, but then you can prove your new-found skills. Jessica enjoyed the shooting range with her client where she hit 90% of her skeets! With additional activities including: numerous racquet sports, kayaking along the beautiful river, listening along to the many musical series, lounging beside the pool or at the spa, and many more, you will surely never run out of things to do!
After a full day of exploring the land and all the Montage has to offer, you will be able to kick back in one of the charming rooms, suites, or cottages that rest on the land. There are also many options for your company’s meeting or event. The Montage features multiple ballrooms, numerous meeting spaces, and even a chapel that can be converted into an alternate meeting space.
Don’t forget to try the diverse food offerings and don’t miss the fireside smores for dessert! In just a ten-minute boat ride you can also get to the quaint and unique town of Bluffton where you can further experience all the savory food and memorable activities that this area offers.
So…. if you want to go on a relaxing family vacation, take a romantic trip with your spouse, step into a new place for work meetings or events, go away for a girl’s weekend, or just get away from your bustling life for a little while, Montage Palmetto Bluff is the place for you!
