Luxury Resorts in Myrtle Beach

You deserve to be pampered on the luxe level! Which is why I scoured the Strand’s hundreds of resorts for some of the most luxurious resorts in Myrtle Beach that kick things up a notch. Here’s a first-class list of what I'd recommend!

featured North Beach Resort & Villas
1. North Beach Resort & Villas

North Beach takes up an impressive 7.5 acres on the north end of Myrtle Beach, from an island along the coast to Highway 17. There are the majestic pair of towers of condos (up to five bedrooms) connected by the 5,000-plus-square-foot, seven-bedroom penthouse Bridge and then there is the village of villas and two-story beach cottages available to rent for bigger groups. Either way, you have access to the property’s many amenities, including the Caribbean-themed pools, the onsite Cinzia Spa, and fine dining 21 Main Prime Steakhouse.

This luxury resort along the Intracoastal Waterway is a beauty, known for hosting lavish events and weddings, and featuring up to four-bedroom suites. Overlooking a working marina, the inn also has the award-winning WaterScapes Restaurant onsite, two swim-in-place indoor lap pools, and access to the Grande Dunes clay tennis courts and resort golf course. Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and Anchor Café are also a short-distance walk away.

featured Island Vista

This oceanfront resort truly lives up to its name, with gorgeous vistas at every turn on a peaceful section of Myrtle Beach. The one- through four-bedroom suites will not disappoint your luxury tastes. Add to that the resort’s upgraded amenities, including the well-known Cypress Room restaurant showcasing ocean views, cocktail bar, a layout of indoor and outdoor pools, hot tubs, and lazy river – all within the property’s tropical lush landscaping.

4. Kingston Resorts

The four resorts that make up Kingston Resorts have quite the representation of going all out to impress – and they recently completed a $65 million renovation, so now the experience is even more over-the-top. The four properties are: The pristine grounds host some of the finest rooms and suites (now fully updated) on the Grand Strand. The Landing boasts 78Fitness, complete with workout equipment and golf simulators, Spa33, and more activities. And the renowned amenities list continues, with five dining destinations, including the new Black Drum Brewery, water features, including the new Currents Seaside Entertainment pool decks, pool and two waterparks on top of the nine pools, cabanas and lounge decks already in place, and tennis, pickleball, and volleyball courts.
