Spa Montage Palmetto Bluff

Intimate Lowcountry luxuriance
Plantation shutters, Spanish moss and the surrounding verdant countryside heighten the serenity of true Southern hospitality at Spa Montage Palmetto Bluff, the cottage-style oasis at Montage Palmetto Bluff. The spa follows the classic cottage interior design style of the property. 

Park the beach cruiser that came with your cottage outside the luxury spa and walk through a beautifully landscaped, enclosed, front space that mimics the sanctuary feel of the building’s interior.

Once inside the Bluffton spa, guests approach a reception desk. Behind it, large windows offer a peek at the Bluff's grassy and naturist property while also allowing the sun to warm and amply light the two-story lobby. Most of the building is decorated in white, neutral tans and pale beige tones to ease you into a sense of serenity — and to let the spectacular views take center stage. 
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • The calming spa is only is only a short bike — or golf-cart — ride away from most of the property's accommodations. If you're staying in the 75-room inn, simply head downstairs to indulge in a treatment at the first-floor facility. 
  • With plenty of options to choose from, you can't go wrong with any of the treatments for two. Whether you indulge in the 2.5-hour Lover's Jubilee  treatment with full-body massages, back exfoliation and a foot soak, or the His & Her Kur exfoliation, wrap, soak and rub-down in the private couple's suite, you will emerge from your treatment starry-eyed.
  • The relaxation lounge is filled with goodies, including lemon-infused water, apples and freshly baked chocolate chip cookies.
  • The Amazing Grace Massage on the May is a deluxe package that you wo't find anywhere else. Enjoy a 60- or 90-minute massage while cruising down the May River aboard the Hilton Head hotel’s antique 1913 yacht, Grace.
Things to Know
  • The luxury spa recommends arriving 15 to 30 minutes before your appointment.
  • A 20 percent service charge is automatically added onto your bill, so you don't have to worry about tipping (unless you want to reward your therapist even more for a job well done).
  • Spa Montage Palmetto Bluff is a great place bond with your kids. Young guests will love the "Fountain of Youth" menu, which offers facial and makeup services for guests 11 to 15 years old, and junior manicures and pedicures for those aged 10 and under.
  • Cell phones are prohibited in the spa facilities.
The Treatments
  • Treatments at the intimate hideaway evoke the pleasures of Low country, from the Signature Palmetto High Cotton therapy that combines a massage, hair renewal mask and foot reflexology to the Lemon Aide pedicure that taps into the natural antioxidant properties of the citrus fruit. Pine sea salt, geranium rose and hibicus sugar are just a few of the products used to scrub, wrap and massage you to a state of bliss.
  • With nine different massages on offer, the hardest part about your time at this Bluffton retreat will be deciding which treatment to get. Whether you are looking for a massage in the comfort of your cottage or in the spa's couple's suite, you'll certainly find the perfect fit on this menu.
  • There's no better way to soothe your thirsty skin than with a wrap. Our favorite is the Signature Carolina Kur Experience, a custom-designed body mud masque inspired by the May River's mineral-rich pluff mud. 
  • There are several treatments that target men. The gentleman’s facial treats razor burn and sensitive skin, but it also pampers your face with a relaxing massage and deep-cleaning mask.
  • Spa Montage Palmetto Bluff provides an extensive menu of facials for those who may have spent a little too much time in the South Carolina sun. Signature offerings include The Valmont Masterpiece (an exclusive anti-aging treatment developed for Spa Montage) and the Hydra Oxy Glow Facial (an oxygen-infused treatment that visibly reduces fine lines and wrinkles). 
The Facilities
  • When the weather is irresistible, lounge by the adults-only spa pool or dive in for a few pre-treatment laps. 
  • The women's locker room is equipped with necessities such as a flat iron, hair dryer, hairbrushes, razors and shower caps. Deodorant, contact lens solution, lotion, shower gel, shampoo and conditioner are dispensed from aluminum containers and made with essential oils for a refreshing, soothing and natural application.
