With 12mi (19km) of croissant-colored beaches, 14mi (23km) of nature trails and 23 golf courses, trips to Hilton Head Island are all about R&R. To help yourself unwind even more, book into one of the South Carolina island’s spa hotels, where you can enjoy everything from aromatherapy bubble baths to mermaid facials. Here are some of the best, all bookable on Culture Trip.

The Marriott’s Barony Beach Club sidles up to the sand on the northeast edge of Hilton Head Island. The hotel spa is named Namaste, and is decorated with a calming color scheme of earthy browns and stony greys. Highlights of the treatment menu include massages with river stones and aromatherapy bubble baths. Post-pamper, you can unwind by the outdoor pool, sink into the outdoor hot tub, or sip a cocktail at All Y’all’s Bar.

The Inn & Club at Harbour Town, for innovative treatments

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.

The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa, for serene relaxation

Overlooking the butter-soft sands of Folly Field Beach, the Westin is home to one of the best spas in Hilton Head Island. Heavenly Spa features 8,000sqft (743sqm) of pamper space, featuring a sauna, steam room, vitality hot tub and serene relaxation room. The treatment list, meanwhile, includes options such as coconut sugar body scrubs and island-to-sea facials that harness the restorative powers of both plant and marine extracts.

Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort, for seasonal treatments

You’ll find Omni on the shorefront at Bass Head Beach, overlooking the Atlantic. Its spa is called Ocean Tides, and one glance at the treatment menu will show you why it is one of the best spas in Hilton Head Island. In addition to the standard therapy list, with options including mermaid facials and warm quartz massages, the spa puts on additional treatments that reflect the seasons – think honey pumpkin rubs in fall, for example.

Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island, for a classic spa menu

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.

Highlights of the treatment list include agave head-and-shoulder massages and line-erasing facials. After your pampering, relax around the Ocean Palms pool or in the outdoor hot tub.
