USA Today Ranks North Beach Plantation No. 1

USA Today and 10Best.com confirmed what guests of the North Beach Plantation have known all along; you can’t beat it for the ultimate vacation experience on the Grand Strand.

The popular newspaper and web site selected North Beach Plantation as the No. 1 Luxury Hotel in the Myrtle Beach area in a recent article. The story cited the resort for its Four-Diamond Rating from AAA, as well as its “upscale accommodations and first-class amenities.”

The high praise was nothing new for North Beach Plantation, which offers its guests a broader selection of accommodations than any resort on the Strand. Stay in the oceanfront towers, which feature one-, two-, or three bedroom luxury suites overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, or stretch out in your very own townhome, condo or beach house at the on-site North Beach Cottages.

The 60-acre, Caribbean-themed oceanfront resort features twin towers joined by an arch for a beautiful and spacious place to stay and play, including 20 water features on a spacious pool deck that spans three oceanfront acres. An 18,000 square foot fitness center and full-service spa, guests stay in the lap of luxury and play in an upscale environment.

Guests can relax in the Jacuzzis, lazy river or at the swim-up bar, which also serves as one of three on-site dining facilities, including the award-winning 21 Main restaurant. Enjoy a romantic dinner overlooking the ocean, with prime beef aged in house, fresh seafood to complete your surf-and-turf selection and an extensive wine list.

Looking to explore the area? North Beach Plantation is surrounded by fun things to do. Barefoot Resort, a popular entertainment, dining and shopping complex, is just down the road, and there are lots of great golf courses within a short distance. It all adds up to the reason North Beach was named No. 1.
