3 Relaxing Resorts in Georgia
Take a load off at one of the Peach State’s peachiest resorts
Working for a living can lead to built-up stress and anxiety, and the best medicine is to take time away now and then and treat yourself to some rest and relaxation. Georgia is home to some of America’s most magnificent lodges, championship golf courses, luxurious spas and salons and comfortable, Southern-style accommodations. If you’re ready to take a well-deserved break from the daily grind, these Georgia resorts are just what the doctor ordered.
The Lodge at Sea Island
There is no wrong way to enjoy the beauty that abounds at The Lodge at Sea Island, but it may offer no view more striking than that of the vast and yawning Atlantic Ocean from The Pool House. While you’re basking in the sunshine and sea breeze, you can take your time with a snack like the muffuletta panini or turkey Cobb salad wrap, all prepared in house. When you’ve worked up an appetite for a round of golf, The Lodge offers three quality courses, or you can get a workout in at the well-equipped fitness center. With its charming antebellum accommodations and available in-room dining, you may even just consider lounging about your room for a day.
The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa
The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa is an exceptional base for exploring historic downtown Savannah, but it offers enough in the way of experiences, activities and entertainment that you could spend a whole weekend on the grounds. You’ll wake up refreshed after having spent the night in a famous Westin Heavenly Bed, which serves as the perfect segue to an afternoon at the Heavenly Spa by Westin. There, you can book a couple’s massage, get a manicure or pedicure or take a long steam. After your muscles are good and relaxed, test their mettle at the resort’s 18-hole golf course that serves as the home of the PGA Champions Tour Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf Tournament.
A popular destination for weddings, conferences and social galas, Chateau Elan in Braselton is every bit as desirable for a quiet yet majestic weekend with a couple close friends or a special someone. The star attraction is the vineyard and winery — beautiful to explore on your own or as part of a guided tour and tasting. When you’re looking to dine, you’ll have several great on-site restaurants from which to choose, including the Marc Bar & Restaurant and the Fleur-de-lis. In addition to high-class accommodations and amenities and 45 holes of championship golf, Chateau Elan offers guests a complimentary shuttle to the downtown historic district so that you can amble and shop at your leisure.
Life is short, and no matter how hard you work, the one thing you can’t get back is time. Take full advantage with a weekend stay or mini vacation at one of Georgia’s best lodges, and you’ll feel the benefits of kicking your feet up in no time flat.
