Check In

Welcome to your new home away from home: Planters Inn, the sole Relais & Châteaux luxury hotel in South Carolina. This Grande Dame hotel boasts an unrivaled location in the heart of Charleston’s Historic District and wins guests over time and time again with its refined Southern style and beguiling atmosphere, not to mention the welcoming bellhops grinning ear-to-ear and nightly macarons at turndown!

Shop

Just steps away from Planters Inn is the historic Charleston City Market. Hop across the street and say “hello” to the talented sweetgrass basket weavers and browse through hundreds of local products, from benne wafers to local artwork to rice bead bracelets. Then, surprise your significant other with a stop at Croghan’s Jewel Box. Located just one block away on bustling King Street, this 100-year-old sparkling nook is a treasure trove of heirloom silver, estate jewelry and classic gifts.

Cheers

Following a sunset stroll along The Battery, cheers over champagne and a slice of the mouth-watering 12-layer Ultimate Coconut Cake in the hidden garden courtyard of Peninsula Grill. Surrounded by flickering carriage lanterns, you’ll experience one of the most romantic (and delicious) dining experiences Charleston has to offer.

Go Green

Step into the tropical-inspired oasis that is Basic Kitchen and enjoy local produce, whole grains and legumes and a rainbow of spices and vinegars. INSIDER TIP: The Watermelon Whisperer and Southern Exposure cocktails are two favorites.

Stroll

When booking a Planters Inn hotel suite online, guests can enjoy complimentary use of a luxurious new BMW 750i or X5 during their stay. Hop in and take a drive to Middleton Place, the placid oasis that offers an inviting step back in time, where the air is sweet with the scent of tea olives and roses, and branches of broad-trunk trees sway gently with the river breeze.

Day Three

Spa, sip & sail: three words we love to hear! Time to refresh, relax and soak up your final day in Charleston... until next time that is.

Treat Yourself

Spend a relaxing morning at The Spa at Belmond Charleston Place. Sip tea and enjoy a chocolate truffle (or two) in the soothing waiting room before a Southern Glow facial or Deep Tissue massage. INSIDER TIP: Spa guests also have access to the rooftop pool!

Sip & Savor

Wine time! Head to goat.sheep.cow and feel as though you’re stepping into an inviting French fromagerie. Enjoy a leisurely afternoon filled with exceptional cheese and charcuterie, and a bottle - or two - of wine, of course.

Set Sail

Set sail aboard the Schooner Pride and keep your eyes open for flippered friends in the peaceful waters of Charleston Harbor during a sunset sail. We can think of no better way to say “so long” (or “see you soon!”) to the Holy City. P.S. We won't judge if you sneak in one last slice of Ultimate Coconut Cake before you go!
