About Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island

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. The covered pavilion is surrounded by a lush semi-tropical landscape with an expansive view of the ocean and a serene lagoon. A picturesque bridge over the lagoon leading to the pavilion offers a great location for wedding photos.

The Shipyard Beach Club is the perfect setting for beach view ceremonies, relaxed receptions or elegant sit-down dinners for 30-80 people. Newly renovated, it offers the protection of a fully enclosed, air conditioned facility and uninterrupted views of the ocean from its large outdoor deck.

The Santee Ballroom is the resort’s elegant indoor wedding option with sparkling chandeliers and spacious accommodations. The Santee Ballroom can be divided to host a more intimate wedding ceremony or expanded for a full service sit-down reception for up to 700 guests.

The outdoor Heyward's Terrace is a perfect for your intimate wedding of 20-40 people. Overlook our beautiful landscaping and our water fountain lagoons as you enjoy the company of your friends and family. Conveniently located nearby the Savannah Jr. Ballroom which is a private indoor venue ideal for intimate sit-down dinners and space for a dance floor and entertainment.

Along with on-site ceremonies available at the Pavilion and Beach Club, Sonesta also has a variety of alternative ceremony locations. Beach Ceremonies can be accommodated from either of our two beach access points from our two beachfront venues and can host any size wedding on the beautiful Hilton Head Island sandy beach. Mid-Isle Lawn Ceremonies are available in the grassy knoll in-between the resorts two lagoons, fountains and bridge. The lawn offers a private and picturesque ceremony separate from the reception venues. Arbor View Lagoon Ceremonies are ideal for intimate weddings as they overlook the beautiful lagoon and fountain and are just a few steps away from Heyward's Terrace.

Hold an intimate rehearsal dinner or Farewell Brunch with us, too. Relax while we plan the wedding of your dreams - all you have to add is the "happily ever after"!
