We are getting excited about the opening of the Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head Island. This $30 million renovation of the 340 guest rooms and public spaces, as well as a new spa, will open this spring. Sims Patrick Studio, Inc, along with the architectural firm designONE studio, combined the casualness and textures of the South Carolina Low Country with modern architectural details in this ”one-of-a-kind” resort.
Our design team has had a great time transforming the two existing swimming pools into a zero entry, lagoon style pool as well as an indoor/outdoor pool that flows into other outdoor entertaining spaces. The beautiful new furnishings and updates in the guest rooms welcome business travelers and families alike. Jenny Rutledge, Sims Patrick VP of Design and Construction, commented, "The public spaces, including the lobby, event space, bar, restaurant, courtyard, and outdoor pavilion, will have a totally new feel. This is not just a hotel anymore, it is a true resort that people will want to return to." And as Melissa Wylie, Sims Patrick VP of Design and Operations, said, "Sims Patrick embraces this type of renovation, where the relaxed elegance that the owners desire pairs so beautifully with the inspiration from the location."
We will keep you posted on opening day!
