Soft Sand, Ocean Views
Surrounded by tranquil lagoons and a lush landscape, Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island is steps from the Atlantic Ocean.
The spectacular Oceanfront Beach Pavilion can gracefully host wedding ceremonies and receptions on an intimate or grand scale for 60 or more people.

A picturesque bridge over the lagoon leading to the pavilion offers a great location for wedding photos.

The Sonesta Resort was the BEST decision we made of the entire wedding! As soon as we stepped foot on their property, it was a done deal for us. The entire resort is so well maintained and beautiful, it was the perfect background for our wedding. Every photo from our first-look, ceremony and reception is just flawless with Sonesta surroundings in the back. From my initial inquiry they were so responsive and wonderful. We worked with Samantha who was amazing from her first email! I emailed her weekly with long lists of questions and we always responded same-day and answered every single one. She answered my next questions before I even asked them. Her execution on wedding day was flawless, as was the entire hotel! Everyone from the door men to the front desk to housekeeping was SO accommodating and nice. Every employee that passed me greeted me as "bride" and congratulated us the entire weekend. Other than how beautiful the pavilion was, the biggest compliment we received from our guests was on the food! OMG the food! Our guests just kept repeating "Hands down the best wedding food I've ever had" - and it truly was amazing. I could not have asked anything more of the Sonesta and their staff. The value for this place is unparalleled.Sent on 09/12/2018
