Willet Room

Relax to the gentle hum of the river, or mingle for some good conversation at The Dunlin's Lobby Bar. Open throughout the day, we invite you to pop in for a perfect iced tea or refreshing cocktail served with a side of Southern charm. This is where to sit if you'd like a light lunch, to try a rare whiskey, or to linger in the early evening with close friends over wood fire-grilled oysters and a Charleston Swizzle.

The Cove

With decor inspired by the beach clubs of a bygone era, with a sense of 1950s glamour and lush palm trees imparting the feel of a tropical landscape, the adult-centric Resort Pool is the perfect place to wile away summer days. Delight in a refreshing cocktail made with fresh-squeezed juice beneath a striped umbrella or in your private cabana, enjoying luxe lunch classics with a nod to Beverly Hills-style allure.
