There are a million reasons to spend your Grand Strand vacation at North Beach Plantation, but we can only pick five. It’s not an easy list to narrow down, especially for guests who enjoy the finer things in life.

You don’t get to be a multi-year AAA Four-Diamond Resort without doing something right. Scratch that – without doing EVERYTHING right. North Beach is one of those rare gems that covers all the bases and cuts no corners. From the moment you arrive at the oceanfront property, you will experience luxury at every turn.

Here are five reasons to stay at North Beach Plantation for the ultimate Grand Strand vacation experience:

Accommodations: Prepare to wrap yourself in luxury in an elegant nest high in North Beach Plantation’s twin oceanfront towers. Offering modernly decorated and fully furnished condo-style units ranging from one to five bedrooms, the 18-story towers overlook the scenic Atlantic Ocean that you can enjoy from your private balcony. All rooms provide all the creature comforts of home, including full kitchens, washers and dryers, flat-screen TVs, plush fixtures and comfortable beds and furnishings. Larger parties can stay at one of the North Beach cottages for a more private retreat, or go big by staying at The Bridge, a seven-bedroom penthouse that connects the twin towers and offers a long list of luxurious features.

Amenities: No resort on the Grand Strand can match North Beach Plantation in this department, and it all starts with the spacious oceanfront pool deck. North Beach has 18 different pools, hot tubs, and other water features, not to mention easy access to the beach and ocean. The swim-up bar is the centerpiece of the pool deck, featuring underwater bar stools and private booths where patrons can enjoy a frozen drink and mingle with fellow guests. There are plenty of pools for the kids to play and for adults to relax without crossing paths. Guests can also take a bike ride around the beautiful property or a stroll down the secluded beach.

Location: North Beach is situated on a special piece of oceanfront property on the North Myrtle Beach coast. A tidal creek crosses through the premises to create a literal and figurative island that gives guests a level of seclusion that is hard to find anywhere else on the Strand. The coastal landscape provides the perfect place to go exploring and take in the natural beauty of live oak trees draped with Spanish moss and towering pines swaying in the ocean breeze. North Beach is also a short distance from Barefoot Landing, a popular entertainment, dining and shopping district, and Barefoot Golf Resort, which has four award-winning courses.

21 Main: There’s no need to go out for dinner when one of the best restaurants on the Grand Strand is located just outside your door. Specializing in steaks and sushi, 21 Main serves prime cuts of beef that are dry aged in-house for 21 days and grilled to perfection, as well as creative sushi and sashimi options. Fresh local seafood and fresh catch specials make for the perfect surf-and-turf combination. Chef’s specials include the Lowcountry Shrimp & Grits and the St. Louis-style BBQ Ribs, along with a fine selection of soups, salads and side items. Be sure to save room for dessert, like the tasty New York cheesecake, and enjoy a nice cordial or coffee while you savor the flavors and soak up the charming atmosphere.

The Cinzia Spa: Spoil yourself rotten but feel fresh and rejuvenated at the on-site, full-service spa. Offering a wide selection of massage therapies, salon services, and ritual treatments, The Cinzia Spa provides a relaxing retreat for you to unwind your body and mind. The modern facility also features a fitness center and exercise rooms hosting yoga, Pilates, CrossFit and more workout classes. Whether you want to work up a sweat or pamper yourself, The Cinzia Spa is the place to go.
