Make your escape to Montage Palmetto Bluff

You wake up in the morning and step outside. The sky is painted orange as the sun just begins to peek over the lush green trees. You inhale deeply, calmed by the scent of the river on the gentle breeze. You close your eyes and soak in the stillness. It’s the best of the Lowcountry—an escape to Montage Palmetto Bluff.

Nestled in South Carolina along the scenic May River, Montage Palmetto Bluff is a classic southern getaway. Time moves slower at the resort—the 20,000 acre community gives you a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Even your car can take a break—the main mode of transportation is a bicycle. With a nature preserve, walking trails, a marina, and a Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, there’s peace and quiet around every turn.

If you and your partner are ready to get away, one of the beautiful rooms or charming cottages is ideal for a romantic escape. If you want to spend quality time with the whole family, the comfortable homes and residences have room for grandparents, cousins, and everyone in between. No matter where you choose to stay, you will be transported to tranquility.

The resort offers more than a vacation. After a year of unforeseen challenges, it provides a welcoming space to reset. It also offers families an opportunity to connect—not because they’re forced to be together, but because they choose to be together. There are activities available for all age groups, so you can create the perfect family bonding experience for kids and grandparents alike.

Take a kayak tour on the river, and you might catch an Atlantic Bottlenose dolphin swimming by. Join the Daufuskie Island Excursion to learn the history of the island and tour artists’ studios and cultural attractions. Take advantage of low tides and beachcomb for stunning shells on the sandbar. From bike rides to tennis clinics, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Though the outdoor adventures are a highlight, the drinks and dining are equally enjoyable. Complimentary beer and wine is offered alongside live music the first Friday of each month for Cocktails in the Moreland Courtyard. Start your morning with a coffee and a breakfast sandwich from the Canteen in Moreland Village. Dine outdoors with a scenic view of the river at Palmetto Bluff favorite, Buffalo’s. Enjoy a Mexican-style lunch at Fore & Aft, then stop by Melt ice cream parlor for an afternoon treat—and that’s just scratching the surface of the delicious dining.

To experience deeper relaxation, visit Spa Montage. The treatments are inspired by the natural surroundings to create an indigenous spa experience—it’s a mind-body connection with nature. Once you’re feeling refreshed, you can spruce up at the Salon Montage to complete your rejuvenation.

The shopping is also something you don’t want to miss. The May River Golf Shop has all the attire and accessories you need for a day on the putting green. Provisions by Palmetto Bluff features an array of southern artists and makers—the shop has unique items every time you visit. You can spend a full day browsing sportswear, jewelry, apparel, spirits, and gifts from near and far. 

When you spend time at the resort, you create a legacy of adventure that will last for generations to come—memories of catching fish and cooking it for dinner, strolling through the historic, mossy oaks, and watching the sunset on the river. It’s time to turn on your Out of Office and turn off your phone. Step away from life’s stressors and into a picturesque stay at Montage Palmetto Bluff
