Why Stay At Sanderling Resort
Newly revived and poised to reopen this spring, The Sanderling Resort is the only full-service resort in North Carolina's Outer Banks, one of the country's best coastlines for sand dunes, secluded beaches, and waterfront wildlife.
North Carolina's Outer Banks, a 200-mile stretch of barrier islands along the Atlantic, is one of the best-kept secrets in the U.S. And the Sanderling Resort, unveiling a new look on 16 windswept acres and almost completely encircled by the Atlantic Ocean and the serene Currituck Sound, is an ideal jumping-off point for exploring the pristine coastline—no matter if you're on a romantic escape or with your kids. The 95 accommodations range from double rooms to family homes, with seven brand new poolside rooms having just been added. All are adorned with cedar shake sidings, feature water or dune views, and large bathrooms stocked with plush robes and L'Occitane bath amenities. Travelers in linen pants and wide-brimmed hats unwind by one of the sparkly pools or the beach. You may also opt to head to the painted white porches for complimentary morning coffee.. If you'd rather be pampered, the 6,000-square-foot spa—a Travel + Leisure World's Best Award winner—incorporates local ingredients (sea, salt, and sand), as does topnotch on-site restaurant Kimball's Kitchen. Order from the plentiful varieties of oysters caught off of the Carolina coast.
Grab a comfy cushion near one of the fire pits on the Beach House Deck to enjoy some live entertainment or kick back to watch the sunset.
Don't miss The Lost Colony; an enthralling production about the mysterious disappearance of the Roanoke Island settlers.
