Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Presiding over a pristine beach, this award-winning blufftop resort perfectly blends the setting's natural beauty with top-tier service and luxe upgrades throughout your celebration.
  • After your toes-in-the-sand ceremony, host a swanky reception in a grand ballroom, on a velvety lawn, or beneath a luxurious tent. When the night finally winds down, you and your sweetie can return to your complimentary oceanview guest room, where the lullaby of the waves will inspire sweet dreams
  • Every amenity imaginable can be found here, including a spa, fitness center, gift shops, and a delectable New American-inspired restaurant. Just outside, you'll find the scenic Shell Beach promenade, which is perfect for golden hour photos or a romantic stroll with your sweetie.
