Every happy couple has their own story about plans for a romantic getaway gone horribly wrong. Whether it’s lost luggage at the airport, the lack of a babysitter for a nice night out to dinner, or a nightmare problem with a hotel, even bad dates turn into funny stories over time.
But you don’t have to worry about having one of those bittersweet moments if you spend your romantic retreat at North Beach Plantation in North Myrtle Beach. As a multi-year recipient of AAA’s prestigious Four Diamond Award, you can rest assured you and your loved one will have an experience that will be remembered for much better reasons. Here are five reasons why North Beach is the top resort on the Grand Strand for couples to enjoy a relaxing and romantic stay:
Accommodations: Stay in the lap of luxury at North Beach Plantation’s oceanfront twin towers. Offering a wide selection of condos and suites, every unit has a private balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean for a romantic view by day and a good place to snuggle at night. All rooms are elegantly decorated and modernly furnished with all the things you want and need for a nice love nest. For an extra special visit, book one of North Beach Cottages’ townhomes or vacation homes, or go all out and reserve the best penthouse on the Strand, The Bridge, which is located in the archway between the towers.
Amenities: You can’t find another place on the Strand with a better selection of amenities than North Beach. For starters, the 2 1/2-acre oceanfront deck offers easy access to the beach and to the many pools on the premises. Take a dip in the indoor lazy river or the outdoor hot tubs and heated pools before you paddle over to the swim-up bar, which was named the best in the U.S. by TripAdvisor. Sip on a frozen drink and chill out at the bar or a private booth in the water, or kick back and relax in one of the comfortable beach chairs available to guests. Visitors can also take a stroll down the beach or around the property to see just how special this coastal paradise really is.
Cinzia Spa: What can be more romantic than a spa date for two? Located on the North Beach property, the 3,000 square foot facility offers spine-tingling massages and spoil-me-rotten salon services to give you and that special someone a great way to spend a day. For those who like to work up a sweat, Cinzia Spa also features fun fitness opportunities, such as yoga classes and CrossFit training sessions on the beach. Patrons can relax in the tranquil luxury of the meditation room or the outdoor hot tub.
21 Main: No need to go looking for the best restaurant in town when it is only a short walk away from your door. 21 Main Steakhouse & Sushi provides the ideal setting for a romantic dining experience. Specializing in in-house dry-aged prime beef and a creative collection of sushi options, 21 Main allows guests to have surf and turf and a whole lot more – an extensive wine list, delicious desserts, coffee concoctions, and cordials for a nightcap.
Location: Wow, we’re already on reason No. 5 and we haven’t even left the resort property yet. North Beach guests don’t have to travel far to find some romantic venues in the neighborhood at nearby Barefoot Landing. Catch a concert at the House of Blues, enjoy dinner and a show at Umberto’s and the Alabama Theatre, or simply stroll along the boardwalk and take in the shops, sights and sounds.
