HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (October 17, 2017) — For 30 years now, Condé Nast Traveler has annually celebrated the “Best in the World” in numerous different categories.
In 2017, Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort on Hilton Head Island plays a big part in the prestigious celebration.
In the 2017 category “Best Resorts in the South,” Palmetto Dunes ranked No. 3 in the Condé Nast Traveler Readers Choice Awards.
The publication rated Palmetto Dunes ahead of such stalwarts as The Cloister on Sea Island, GA (No. 14) and The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, WVA (No. 21), as well as a pair of Lowcountry neighbors, Montage at Palmetto Bluff in Bluffton (No. 7) and The Inn & Club at Harbour Town on Hilton Head (No. 8).
Of note, the publication previously named Hilton Head Island the No. 1 Island in the United States.
More than 300,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted millions of ratings and tens of thousands of comments, sharing their recent travel experiences of the world’s cities, islands, hotels, resorts, cruise lines, airlines, and airports — good or bad.
As the most discerning, up-to-the-minute voice in all things travel, Condé Nast Traveler is the global citizen’s go-to reference, offering both inspiration and vital consumer insight.
“Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront Resort never stops serving our guests to the highest standards,” said Brad Marra, the resort’s Vice President of Resort Operations. “We always appreciate recognition from esteemed media outlets such as Condé Nast Traveler, particularly in this case because it is the sophisticated travelers who are rating the resorts. Palmetto Dunes regularly receives glowing praise from our visitors. This ranking certainly validates these happy guests.”
All the category winners will be celebrated in the November issue of Condé Nast Traveler as well as online at www.cntraveler.com/rca.
