Montage Palmetto Bluff is an idyllic location for a wedding in South Carolina, but there’s so much more to the resort than its gorgeous wedding venues and sites. With the unique combination of being a resort within a community of luxury residences, couples and travelers alike will never want for something to do when visiting this Lowcountry gem. Here’s six activities to fill a romantic weekend getaway at Montage Palmetto Bluff.
1) Get a couple’s massage.
The Grace Ormonde Wedding Style team paid a visit to Spa Montage and can personally attest to its excellence. With a full menu of spa services dedicated to couples, don’t miss an opportunity to unwind via a few hours of exfoliation treatments, relaxing soaks, and indulgent couple’s massages.
2) Take up a new hobby.
Golf lovers will enjoy spending an afternoon or two on the gorgeous May River Golf Course – an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Course woven throughout 7,171 yards of May River Forest. You can also try your hand at sporting clays shooting at the Palmetto Bluff Shooting Club.
3) Browse the shops.
Montage Palmetto Bluff has a collection of shops that provide the most charming source of retail therapy. Check out RT’s Market for a “neighborhood general store” experience; the spa boutique for luxury skincare, apparel, and spa gifts; the boathouse boutique for designer resort wear; or Treasures at the Montage for local products and regionally inspired jewelry – perfect for souvenirs.
4) Log some poolside time.
What’s a romantic weekend getaway without some time spent lounging by the water? Relish in the peace and tranquility of your Lowcountry surroundings with a couple hours at the pool.
5) Wine and dine in style.
There’s enough dining options at Montage Palmetto Bluff to try something new at every meal during a romantic weekend getaway. For restaurants, try Cole’s for stunning views and regional comfort food favorites like patty melts and fried pickles; Fore & Aft for a light lunch in a casual setting; enjoy a tipple or two at the River House Lounge; or wine and dine in style at the Octagon Bar. Alternatively, the resort offers in-room and private dining, so you can arrange for a completely customized dinner for two
6) Charter a boat.
Take date night (or day) to the water by chartering a boat down the scenic May River. Montage Palmetto Bluff has two exquisite yachts – GRACE, which features wine cruises and a Saturday mimosa cruise, and PALMETTO BLUFF, which hosts small groups and private charters. If you’re lucky, you may even spot some local dolphins!
