Situated at the southernmost tip of South Carolina, the resort town of Hilton Head Island has long been a popular destination for those seeking a laid back respite from the daily grind. Almost as intrinsic as the island’s southern hospitality is its atmosphere of luxury. Though subtle, high-end resorts, upscale restaurants and boutique shopping await vacationers looking for the more luxurious side of Hilton Head.

The newest spa on Hilton Head Island, the Arum Spa, is an intimate, temporary hideaway to release the stress of your day. Local products of fragrant jasmine and sea salt are the stars in their signature treatments. After sun treatments, indulgence wraps, hot stone therapies and other blissful diversions are on offer here. The cherry on this idyllic sundae is perhaps sipping a glass of lavender infused champagne as your feet soak post treatment.
Whether it’s a serene walk on the beach or a leisurely bike ride through the plantation grounds, time outside is well spent here.
