“Perfect!”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Our stay for our anniversary weekend was in word: perfect!

Your Inn is absolutely lovely and the grounds impeccable! What a great place to get away from it all and concentrate on each other. We enjoyed a wonderful spa experience and two rounds of golf. We could not have asked for the stay to be any better. Food was delicious at Buffalo's and Canoe Club. Omar served us again this visit and was delightful. This was our second visit this year to your incredible resort and we will be back next year! Thanks for having great people working for you to make the experience complete .

Literally an outstanding but unknown establishment by most travelers...We have a very affluent clientel in our business and when mentioned to several, their comment was "never heard of it". I found it accidentally, but I will never forget it! From the very moment your arrive you will be impressed by the staff, accomdations and crusine. I won't go into detail, but go on line and check it out. Better yet, take a few days and really pamper your yourself and your mate. I have traveled extensively throughout the world, and I can now personally attest to this being a property you do not want to miss.

My wife and I returned in July for our third visit to the Bluff and the experience gets better every time. The cottages are fantastic - very comfortable bedding, a luxurious bathroom and the enclosed porch a perfect place to wind down the day. The service is without peer, from the Inn desk to the bellhops and the concierges, especially Pat. The golf experience is tremendous, a beautiful course complimented by the caddie program. My wife loves the Spa, each and every treatment she's received over the years have been perfect. The adults only pool is very relaxing and the provided bicycles are a great touch. All of the dining options (Buffalo's, The River House & Canoe Club) are worth a visit or two.
We look forward to returning in 2014 as we have come to the conclusion that the Bluff is the perfect property for us!

Room Tip: While we have stayed in both lagoon and river view rooms, the river view rooms are well worth the ad...

This is the place which sets the standards against everything else is measured. And by golly it does. The little thoughtful touches which set the top places apart were all there. You could not in your dreams make up a more beautiful and peaceful setting, and the welcome from the staff is enough to make you hug them - take a bow Pat and Holly, my favorite concierges in the whole world . The cottages were top of the line and we thoroughly enjoyed taking off across the estate on the complimentary bikes. Organized activities are on offer (we did an eye opening kayak expedition guided by the charming and knowledgeable Michael) but you can also just chill, walk, cycle and surrender to the ambience.

Everything about the Inn at Palmetto Bluff demands and deserves 5 stars, but I feel obliged to knock off half a star because for the price you pay, perfection is a sine qua non. We had two small wrinkles. You are warned that if you leave the door to the veranda open for more than 10 minutes, the aircon shuts off. Fair enough. But what we were not told is that it needs a technician to come out and reset it. Having learnt our lesson the first night, we made quite sure not to repeat the error the second night, only to discover upon our return from dinner that darned thing had shut down again. The desk would have sent someone out without hesitation, but there must be a better way.... The second issue was that there was no wifi signal in our cottage when we arrived; it took a few days to be sorted out.

These small things in no way detracted from the wonderful stay we experienced, and we left with huge reluctance. I recommend it unreservedly as a little piece of heaven to which we would return in a flash.

Our stay was perfect - service, accommodations, golf, food were all over the top excellent. My wife and I have stayed at some of the finest resorts both nationally and internationally, and Palmetto Bluff is certainly at or near the top. There is an old saying - " you get what you pay for". That is very true for Palmetto Bluff.If you love great service, food , wine, golf, spa , etc. this should be on your "bucket list".

We had the most amazing weekend here as part of a trip to Savannah and Charleston in late September. We stayed two nights in a river front cottage with our 9 month old son. The staff was amazing and so thoughtful. Everything was taken care of ahead of time for us, including spa treatments for my husband and myself, dinner reservations, bicycles, golf cart, etc.... The room was incredible and had plenty of space for the three of us. It was nice and private and we really felt like we were the only ones around. I can not say enough things about this resort. It is exquisite in every way and the attention to detail and personal service is the best I have ever experienced. For example the waitress at the River Grill knew our baby's name and you picked your own time for turn down service. The amenities in the cottage were above and beyond, including a kitchen area with coffee and microwave and small fridge, plenty of waters, snacks and a complimentary bottle of wine, plentiful bath products, etc.... The restaurants were all great and various levels of formality but all were very welcoming of us and our baby. We can not wait to go back.

Last weekend Palmetto Bluff hosted "Music to Your Mouth" and it couldn't have been better! Every meal, tasting and cooking class was delightful. Regional chefs and superb vineyards were represented through out the long weekend. The setting right on the river was delightful. We topped off the weekend with a workout and yoga class on Sunday.

Room Tip: Book way in advance...
