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. The Left Bank is more formal, overlooking the sound and offering an equally fabulous menu. 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. Appreciate everything that savvy travelers have always known with a stay at The Sanderling Resort & Spa.

Wow for friendly service! Craig Green greeted us each time we saw him as if it were a homecoming! He, along with several other staff, were quick to please. It was a lovely resort and the friendly staff made it even more welcoming. Thank you for making sure Craig knows that he makes a difference.

Craig Green greeted us on a late arrival with the brightest smile in the world. Wonderfully helpful with getting us situated. Leaving today, he remembered it was my friends birthday. Epitome of upstanding wholehearted service and care. Rooms are beautiful with views of ocean in building and sunset views over the sound from other buildings. Or and there is a fireplace at night. A couple small cautions. Mosquitos bite and itch. Reservations for spa and activities should be double checked.

We made a last minute decision to go to the Outer Banks and found this property and great reviews on Trip Advisor. The reservations office was not open after 6 pm, so we left a voice mail and they called back the next morning when we were on the road. Even though it was a weekend, they offered us 20 percent off, which is usually only mid week, and we got a lovely king superior room with a sound side balcony. The room was spacious and recently renovated and lush! The staff is uniformly welcoming and helpful. The property is lovely, with three pools, two fire pits, smores provided, and many seating areas. We stayed on the second floor of the Beach House, and they even had games to borrow, including Scrabble. The place is pretty close to perfect!!! Great location! Two restaurants. Lifesaving Station restaurant had a great breakfast. We would go back again in a heartbeat.

We went just before peak season which worked pretty well to our advantage I would say. The pools and bar were open but nothing was overrun. The room was nice and the amenities were perfect. I can see why going during peak season would be ideal with access to the activities planner and a few more things going on around, but we really enjoyed the low key weekend with everything nearby.

Seeking a tranquil sojourn at the highly rated Sanderling Resort we booked a three-night stay. We asked for a beachfront room with a balcony overlooking the ocean so that we could relax and enjoy the distant rhythm of the ocean waves making landfall each evening. We were in heaven as the evening breezes brushed us as we sat in our easy chairs there on the balcony. BAM! Without warning right below our premier room came the shrill vocals and heavy backbeat noises of Hard Rock, Funk, and Rap. No, it wasn’t from another room but rather a pair of large speakers controlled by a Deejay playing for a hotel catered marriage party right below scores of rooms. Our evening was ruined. We retreated to our room, closed the doors, pulled the blackout curtains hoping for solace but without success. The heavy backbeat of the “music” made our large glass doors pulse – thump thump thump - our evening was ruined. A call to the front desk and evening manager brought no relief. While the hotel staff apologized and tried to make amends, there was nothing they could do to give us back the evening we sought. Importantly, we were told that it was not uncommon to cater such activities. Translated: You can book a quite room but be prepared for a Rock Concert in which you will have front row seats. What this tells us is that folks seeking a guaranteed quiet stay at a beachfront property should look elsewhere for solace. Sanderling management has lost their way in the scramble to make a buck. The two “services” they so cavalierly offer are NOT compatible. We will never return to the Sanderling – ever.
