A big part of a summer vacation or a golf getaway is relaxation, a fact that's often forgotten for families, couples and foursomes staying in a hectic environment. Packing and unpacking luggage, trying to keep the kids happy, and trying to get a comfortable nights sleep can make a vacation seem like work sometimes. All the more reason to spend a few extra bucks to pamper yourself with a stay at one of Myrtle Beach's many luxury resorts.
Featuring upscale accommodations and first-class amenities, these full-service resorts allow you kick back and relax in the lap of luxury. Experience the comfort of a Four-Diamond suite at North Beach Plantation or the Marriott Resort at Grande Dunes, where you will also find plenty of activities to keep your entire party entertained. Enjoy a massage on the oceanfront pool deck while the kids play in a spacious swimming area. Order a Mai Thai from the bar, delivered from the bar to your comfy beach chair by pool-deck servers, or spend a day relaxing at the on-site spa.
Many regular visitors have found a more tranquil vacation environment outside of the downtown Myrtle Beach area, such as The Avista Resort in North Myrtle Beach and Litchfield Beach & Golf Club on the south end of the Grand Strand. But the majority of the luxury resorts can be found in the Dunes section of Myrtle Beach, on the north end of town and surrounded by exclusive neighborhoods and golf courses.
