It's all about the water at the award-winning (12 awards and accolades to be exact!) Omni Hilton Head Oceanfront Resort, located on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina. Guests can romp on the island’s 12 miles of white sandy beaches, or choose to frollick in one of the property's three different pools, children’s splash zone, two hot tubs and plenty of plush private cabanas.

If sitting by the water isn't exciting enough, head out on the hotel's lagoon system made for kayaking and canoeing, or pedal down bike trails, play on one of 25 tennis courts or swing your way across the golf courses. While not a typical all-inclusive, make the most of your vacation time with the resort's many special offers and add-ons. Check these special vacation package deals out here.
