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.

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.
