In Summer 2016, The Athens Group completed construction of a 150-room expansion of the legendary Inn at Palmetto Bluff within the award winning 20,000-acre master planned resort in Bluffton, South Carolina. Set upon a landscape of live oaks and Spanish moss, Montage Palmetto Bluff ranks among the top southern resorts in North America. The design of the resort is a historical low country style reminiscent of the original R.T. Wilson mansion that occupied the grounds in the early 1900’s and whose architectural ruins continue to grace the square within Wilson Village. The property sits upon the May River and has spectacular views up, down, and out to the big water. The resort includes the award-winning 13,000 square-foot Spa Montage with an adult lap pool, a stand-alone River House Bar and Restaurant, Jessamine restaurant, a family pool complex with an adjacent bar and grill, two quintessential southern chapels and 16,000 square feet of meeting and banquet space. Resort guests and residents also have access to greater Palmetto Bluff including manicured clay tennis courts, bocce ball and croquet lawns, an equestrian compound, docks for boat access, kayaking and paddle boarding, miles of walking, running and biking trails and a shooting range. In its first year after opening, Montage Palmetto Bluff was recognized as one of the Best New Hotels in the World by Travel and Leisure and is listed as one of the Most Luxurious Accommodations in North America by AAA Five Diamond.
