More than 5,000 acres (2,000ha) of green grounds cocoon the Inn & Club at Harbour Town, on the southwest coast of Hilton Head Island. The resort spa has operated for more than 20 years and, in that time, the treatment list has expanded to include some uncommon options, such as cryothermic wraps and herbology facials. Be sure to bookend your relaxation time with a dip in the boutique pool when you book a treatment here.

Tropical gardens, a lagoon-style pool and six bars and restaurants are just a few of the highlights at the Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head Island’s southeast coast – and then there’s the spa. It’s decked out in a soothing sea-blue-and-pebble color scheme and offers a classic treatment list, featuring hydration facials and hot stone massages. After they’re finished, carve out some time to relax in one of the hammocks or with a cocktail by the al fresco fire pit.
