Sanderling Resort in Duck, North Carolina

With a broad reach that extends to the shores of both the Atlantic Ocean and the tranquil Currituck SoundSanderling Resort in North Carolina is the go-to place for a genteel getaway. An enclave of low-rise gabled buildings encased in cedar shingles overlooks the Outer Banks with sandy beaches stretching for miles in either direction. This distinctive hideaway is most certainly perfect for a truly first class vacation. A multi-million dollar renovation has resulted in sophisticated seaside rooms with private porches and gorgeous views. Each individual building has its own reception area where guests can lounge and mingle as they wish. A handful of Oceanside Villas provide an added touch of luxury.

Sup on succulent crab at Lifesaving Station Restaurant, the resort's signature eatery with historic relics paying homage to its nautical past.

There is also Swan Bar and Lounge and dedicated wine room, where guests can celebrate intimately over a meal of their choosing. The Sanderling Spa is housed in its own cottage-like abode and features a menu of healing treatments coupled with mesmerizing views of the sound. A nearby swimming pool, fitness center and racquet club is also available to guests. In addition to taking advantage of the miles of wonderful beaches and adjacent Pine Island Audubon Sanctuary, you can also enlist the services of the pre-arrival concierge to ensure your stay is effortlessly executed.

I have stayed at the Sanderling for many years, even before it was purchased by its current owners. I'm happy to report that this resort just gets better and better! The staff is friendly and customer-service oriented at all times. The amenities can't be beat. The adults only Tranquility Pool is a welcome respite at any time of the day. During my most recent stay, my room was on the top floor of the south building. I had excellent views of the property, dunes, and ocean. The balcony, with its high chairs, was a wonderful spot to unwind and enjoy the view. Listening to the ocean at night while sleeping on the most comfortable bed possible was a delight. One of the benefits of staying at the Sanderling is that its beach is never crowded. Early morning is particularly peaceful. Just grab a cup of the Sanderling's excellent coffee and stroll on the beach while leaving all worries and cares behind!

Another first rate visit to the Sanderling. The staff at the front desk, Beach House Bar, spa and Lifesaving Station are helpful and accommodating. Dwight, who works the Beach House Bar, recognized me and my husband after a year and a half. He even remembered our drink orders. How cool is that? We got to enjoy the ocean from our Oceanside view room even during the rain (which is pretty cool - not a complaint). Beach towels provided in your room and set up for a umbrella and chair on the beach are just a call away. Last week someone was selling sea-glass jewelry and of course I bought a few things.

Our first time in the Outer Banks led us to this wonderful resort right on the ocean in Duck, North Carolina. Similar to the Ritz Carlton, Key Biscayne, or Bitter End in BVI, but closer to home. Reminded me of New England architecture. Nancy at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating as we're housekeeping staff and restaurant servers most with charming Jamaica accents. (They arrive in summer from Jamaica) Very luxuriously appointed rooms, offered spa lotions, shampoos, and good linens. We enjoyed a lovely salad at the restaurant by the beach, and yummy scallops with succotash at Life Guard Station for dinner. The really pretty uncrowded beach offered chairs and umbrellas set for us by staff, as well as towels. Had we been so inclined, there are people to help point you to activities. We had fun watching the waves, beach walking, and shell collecting. Also, liked shopping in close town of Duck. In the evening we roasted marshmallows over a fire pit. (they gave us a s'mores kit). And we were serenaded by local musicians. We look forward to coming back! Many times...

As first timers to the Outerbanks, my husband and I are so glad we chose the Sanderling Resort to call home during our beach vacation. Our ground-level room overlooked the zero entry family pool, so we were merely steps away from the walkway to the beach. And as busy as the hotel was - a wedding one night and a party the next in the event center- we never felt crowded. In fact, there were times when we seemingly had the beach, tranquility pool and fire pit to ourselves. Not only were the staff extremely friendly, but other patrons of the resort were as well - the ladies we met from Virginia were sooo charming! The common areas as well as our room were decorated in a very pleasing laid back manner, keeping with the NC coastal vibe. Of the dining options in the resort, we ate lunch at the Sandbar two days in a row while enjoying the pool and beach; husband loved the burger and I appreciated the options of a cooling salad. One minor caveat: housekeeping was random. The first day our room was cleaned, a swept pile of sand remained in front of the shower until I cleaned it up and the plastic laundry bag wasn't replaced. No big deal, we grabbed one when they came around for turndown service (nice touch). The second day, the shampoo and conditioner weren't replaced and the bar soap went missing, water spots remained on the bathroom mirror. At turndown service that evening, the duvet was merely rolled up and a 'Virginia Living' magazine was left by the tv... meant for me or just forgotten?

Our room was wonderful, nice and roomy and clean. Staff seem to know your wants and needs even before you did. We celebrated our anniversary just the way we liked. Kicked back, well rested and wonderful places to eat.l
