Calling all golfers: if part of your rest and relaxation includes teeing up on the green, this is the resort for you. Home to the Robert Trent Jones golf course, which is the 5th longest golf course in the world, you can make your way along 18 holes and then head to the clubhouse for a nice lunch. Gear and equipment is available for rental on site.

If golf isn’t your thing, you can spend your time laying by the pool and heading to spa for a variety of treatments from facials to massages. After you are glowing from your spa session, indulge your palate in their upscale restaurants and bars.
