Love is in the Air

Back to Press Releases

Hilton Head Island and its renowned Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort are a perfect place to spend Valentine’s Day … or any other time one might be feeling particularly amorous.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C.— A recent blog on the Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort Web site rates the “Best Places to Kiss on Hilton Head,” and indeed, the island is a romantic place, popular for weddings, engagements, lover’s getaways or sporting adventures with your spouse.

Among the blogger’s Top 10 best places to steal a smooch on Hilton Head were “in a canoe” along Palmetto Dunes’ peaceful 11-mile inland lagoon system; “on a sunset dinner cruise” from Shelter Cove Harbour; or “during a gourmet meal at the Dunes House” — a popular wedding site and one of Hilton Head’s most romantic venues just steps from Palmetto Dunes’ three miles of sun-kissed Atlantic Ocean beachfront.

Of course while any beach is romantic, there’s something extra special on the South Carolina coast of Hilton Head Island when it comes to lighting a spark, particularly within the beautiful Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort.

And although Hilton Head Island exudes its romantic spirit year-round, there is no time of the year when love is in the air more than around Valentine’s Day.

To help its visitors and guests celebrate Valentine’s Day in both style and affordability, Palmetto Dunes is offering a number of romance packages that combine accommodations, activities and spa services.

“The Honeymooner’s Escape” allows guests to sip champagne on a bed of rose petals as they begin their honeymoon at a world-renowned South Carolina oceanfront resort. Relax in an ocean view villa, bike the beaches and play tennis at Palmetto Dunes’ world-class tennis center during a seven-night stay, and enjoy a romantic evening over dinner with a $100 certificate to your choice of our resort restaurants.

  • The Anniversary Celebration” will allow couples to commemorate year(s) of laughter, tears, joy and memories with a seven-day escape to a Hilton Head oceanfront resort. Get cozy in a one-bedroom ocean view villa. Take to the trails with a bike rental. Explore the lagoon in a kayak. Relax during a couple’s spa treatment and fall in love all over again.
  • The Mini Moon” is the perfect solution for any couple looking for a quick escape just after tying the knot. "Mini Moons" are becoming increasingly popular and since Palmetto Dunes knows that you may not have a week or two to spend honeymooning, they've come up with the ultimate package for you, including three nights on a romantic retreat without ever leaving the the Hilton Head Island resort. Relax with a massage and facial treatment. Ride bikes on the beach. Kayak along a peaceful lagoon. Have some friendly competition on the tennis courts and then round out the day with a $100 dinner certificate.
