Southern charm meets modern luxury at the newly reimagined Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa
, in the heart of the historic Savannah River District.
Find personal renewal at Savannah's only AAA four-diamond resort. The resort is just 20 minutes from the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport and offers world-class Troon golf, a Heavenly Spa by Westin, and myriad of other resort activities. Spend your days relaxing or seeking adventure; both are available without stepping foot off the resort.
The Westin Savannah Harbor's world-class amenities include a PGA quality links-style golf course, the world's largest Heavenly Spa by Westin, tennis courts, deepwater dock, fitness center, riverside saline swimming pool, world-class dining, and more.
It is the prime location, not far from fantastic shopping and nightlife, but removed just enough for tranquility. Relax at the riverside oasis in a private cabana with some of the best views of the city, a 90-second complimentary ferry-ride away. Spend the day exploring Savannah's charmed parks and historic attractions before retreating to Westin's signature Heavenly Bed®.
The resort accommodations provide luxurious appointments against the restful backdrop of historic Savannah River Street and the PGA Championship course. Guests feel right at home in these relaxing rooms and will enjoy lavish amenities during their stay.
Along with the guestrooms and public spaces, the brand new pool has also gone through a complete renovation. It features breathtaking views of Savannah, private cabanas, pool-side food and beverage service, and a Children's Dancing Water Play.
As a special treat for its guests, the resort offers many special events throughout the year. One that has quickly become a favorite tradition is their twist on a Lowcountry tradition, the First Friday Oyster Roasts and Fireworks. The first Friday of each month, The Westin Savannah Harbor hosts a riverside evening celebration with live music, libations (full bar), and great food. During the evening, enjoy fresh, succulent oysters, tasty grill items and s'mores by the firepit. Live music creates a fun, casual atmosphere for these monthly riverside celebrations.
For a taste of farm-to-market local foods, Aqua Star restaurant boasts the freshest local catches and Pacific specialties by noted Executive Chef Roger Paul Michel. Knighted in 2010 with a French lifetime achievement award, "Merit d'Agricole," Chef Roger Paul Michel creates culinary masterpieces at Aqua Star, which has been voted by locals as having the "Best Views of Savannah" and the "Best Sunday Brunch." The restaurant hosts wine events and live music periodically; we recommend you call ahead for the upcoming schedule, as the limited-seating events do sell out.
For a mouth-watering dinner, try the cold water lobster tail and filet medallion paired with herbed fingerling potatoes, asparagus and drawn spiced butter. Or savor the pan seared snapper with yuzu glaze on a bed of sesame sautéed edamame, shiitake mushrooms, watercress and spinach. Don't forget to save room for their signature dessert, flamed bananas foster served over locally-made Leopold's ice cream.
Not only is The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa known for its award winning restaurants and golf course, but their spa is also highly acclaimed. The Heavenly Spa by Westin is a Conde Nast Traveler "Top Resort Spa" (2010 and 2011) and provides authentic, memorable experiences based on unique treatments. Ask for their signature Savannah Sweet Tea 'n Peach treatments, or a Heavenly Spa specialty, the Rollerssage, in which perfectly round crystals and heated and rolled over the body for a deeply penetrating massage that's utterly calming and absorbing. Options also include services in the couples' suite, complete with a two-person relaxing soak.
