River House Solaire Sun Deck

Montage Palmetto Bluff celebrates summer and our partnership with Veuve Clicquot, honoring their 250th anniversary in 2022 with River House Solaire. Joyful and bright, River House Solaire is a vibrant, energetic pool deck where Veuve’s signature yellow shines bright amongst the deep greens and blues of the lush Montage Palmetto Bluff setting.

The bright vibe comes to life in custom yellow and white cabanas luxuriously appointed for lounging and relaxation. Tables and chairs set throughout the pool deck have yellow and white umbrellas for a break from the sun. While pool floats of bright yellow punctuate the crystal blue waters of the pool and bean-bag toss boards add vibrancy to the lawn. This festive setting is punctuated by laughter, salty breezes wafting in from the May River and of course, Veuve Clicquot’s champagne in clinking acrylic glasses. River House Solaire is a celebration of joy, bubbles and the innovation of Madame Clicquot and her pioneering spirit. Raise a glass there this summer.

Things to do in Palmetto Bluff

On the Water

Whether you’re looking for a reel good time or just a scenic ride through the Coastal Carolina marshlands, you’ll be out on the water early and often at Palmetto Bluff. For anglers – casting for largemouth bass in the freshwater ponds, fly-fishing for redfish in the salt marsh flats, trolling for trophies in the depths of the Atlantic. Whether you catch and release or bring your catch back to be cooked that evening, you’ll be thrilled to experience an array of fishing at its finest.

Of course, the smooth and scenic waterways provide plenty of entertainment for those who aren’t inclined to bait the hook. You’ve never truly experienced a Lowcountry sunrise or sunset until you’ve seen one from a kayak or canoe, and the miles of water trails make for a paddler’s paradise. Palmetto Bluff offers plenty of group watercraft adventure and private charters – a truly amazing way to experience the Carolina waters.

These are just a few of the activities that can be experienced on the waters in and around Palmetto Bluff:

  • Boat tours to historic Daufuskie Island
  • Boat tours to local beaches
  • Full and half days on the water tubing and skiing
  • Scenic dolphin tours
  • Salt-water fishing
  • Fresh-water fishing
  • Paddleboarding

Palmetto Bluff Conservancy

The Palmetto Bluff Conservancy is dedicated to increasing our understanding of the natural and cultural environment of the Lowcountry.

Resort guests may participate in research, tour with the Conservancy or attend monthly lectures.

From biological and archaeological studies by PhD-level scientists to the “citizen science” bluebird survey, the Conservancy team is actively involved in a number of research initiatives at the Bluff. Current projects include surveys of alligator, turtle, white-tailed deer and bird populations, monitoring of bald eagle nests, a study of cavity-nest use and correlation with habitat, and the analysis of artifacts from the antebellum era.
