The Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort- A Beautiful Transformation

The Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort- A Beautiful Transformation

The Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort, located in Palmetto Dunes, has undergone a $17 million renovation and I was lucky to be invited as their guest for a day! Walking into the new lobby felt like walking into a beautiful beach house. Colors of blue and orange are set against crisp white bead board and a soaring ceiling with white wood beams. Classic beach chic with a modern edge is what came to mind upon seeing the decor. It’s the kind of area that makes you want to stay and relax and sink into the comfy seating, while planning your stay on this beautiful island.

But the fabulous outside calls to you, which brings me to the “outdoor experience”, and I do mean experience. The newly renovated family and adult pools are just steps from the beach, as is the addition of the zero entry pool and kid-friendly “Splash Pad”. Also new is the large rustic fire pit for all to enjoy.
