An outdoor pingpong table, life-size checkers board and fire pits for nighttime hangs are steps from the three pools and two hot tubs.
Grab your bikini or throw your boardshorts in a bag and well… that’s all you need for the easy four-hour-and-four-minute drive from Atlanta to Hilton Head Island for spring break 2015. Book a sunny-side-up getaway at Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort to hang at the high-energy Buoy Bar in the middle of the hotel’s hot pool scene. The property’s recent $17 million renovation means A-towners will find nothing but luxury in South Carolina’s low country. Snag one of 323 studio suites or 20 oceanfront suites. The balcony views are stunners and assure you will nail that all-too-important feet-up-on-the-railing Instagram shot. But don’t stay in the room for too long—the revamped HH Prime restaurant downstairs has overhauled its menu. Its multitiered patio is primo for trying new feature dishes such as apple pie salad or steak and egg (a playful beef carpaccio and quail egg number). For those looking to turn their vacay into a chance to burn off winter lbs., check out the resort’s 25 tennis courts, bike trails, 11-mile lagoon system for kayaking and canoeing, or three championship Hilton Head golf courses rated four stars or better by Golf Digest. Get-fit spring break specials include the Performance and Fitness with Crossfit Hilton Head Package (healthy amenity on arrival, one-on-one performance review with trainer, video analysis, two group sessions and an Athlete Performance Prescription) and more. If you want to keep cocktail in hand while staying active, an outdoor pingpong table and life-size checkers board will also keep your crew busy, no prob. Overnight rate from $358, @omnihotels
