HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- The family-friendly Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort continues to stack up high-profile honors as a top resort not only in the south, but in the country -- and the world.
In February, Travel + Leisure readers voted the Hilton Head resort to the publication’s Top 500 World’s Best Hotels list. Palmetto Dunes was the only Hilton Head Island resort or hotel included. The resort also ranked No. 13 on a list of Top 25 Resorts in the South compiled by Conde Nast Traveler in November and voted on by its readers. The George Fazio golf course also became the third and final of the resort’s courses to be named the South Carolina Golf Course of the Year in fall of 2014.
The new honors are the latest in a long line of awards and recognition, including selection as a World’s Best Family Resort by Travel + Leisure in 2013, named the Top Tennis Resort in the Carolinas by Tennis Magazine in 2012 and the 10th hole at the Robert Trent Jones oceanfront golf course chosen as a South Carolina Dream Hole by PGA.com.
“Our visitors are voting in record numbers to show their love for this resort, to which multiple generations have returned again and again over the last 30+ years,” says Karen Kozemchak, director of marketing for Palmetto Dunes. “Voters are recognizing the wide variety of activities at the resort from golf and tennis to fishing and kayaking, the undeniable beauty of our 2000 acres, including 3 miles of beach, and our ability to cater to all ages in a safe and friendly environment.”
Hilton Head Island has also received high-profile recognition in recent months when it was named a Top 10 Golf Island in the World by Links Magazine, one of the Top 30 Islands in the World by Conde Nast Traveler and one of the Top 22 Best US Islands by the Travel Channel.
