Outer Banks Escape
The Sanderling Resort on North Carolina’s Outer Banks has received a multimillion-dollar makeover that includes resortwide room and restaurant renovations and two new pools. The resort’s 120 rooms—each with a marble bathroom, pillow menu and patio or balcony with hammock chairs—are divided among three oceanfront buildings: North Inn, near the family pool and lawn and sand games; South Inn, overlooking the adults-only tranquility pool; and the Beach House, which boasts a coastal- chic two-story lobby with a bar, puzzles and rocking chairs. Sanderling also offers five luxury beach-home rentals, all recently updated.
The beachfront at Sanderling includes a bar and fire pit, and there are three private access points to the beach. Also on site: AAA four-diamond restaurant Kimball’s Kitchen, a luxury spa, surf lessons, tennis, sailing, jewelry-making workshops and more. The resort’s Lifesaving Station restaurant, which occupies a restored 1899 U.S. Lifesaving Station, displays nautical artifacts (such as pendant lights from a 1940s cruise ship) and has a new outdoor deck for alfresco dining. Rates begin at $399.
