Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island has teamed up with The Brandon Agency to help launch its new resort this year. The agency will assist Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island with its public relations efforts tied to the resort’s grand opening. Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island opened its doors on April 4 following a $30M total renovation and the resort represents the only all-new property opening on Hilton Head Island this year. Its 331 rooms and nine suites are designed to highlight the look and feel of the South Carolina Lowcountry and Hilton Head Island, featuring contemporary and welcoming natural tones of the ocean, coral, and beach.

Public relations efforts will focus on building awareness and bookings for leisure and group travel, as well as garnering attention and driving visits from tourists and locals for its first-class dining, spa and golf offerings. The resort also features 22,500 square feet of meeting and event space that will be supported by public relations efforts.

“We’re excited to bring our hospitality experience and knowledge of Carolina tourism to our new partnership with Sonesta Resort,” said Scott Brandon, president and CEO of The Brandon Agency. “The new property is an impressive representation of what a great resort can bring to a coastal vacation or experience and we intend to keep telling that story throughout our public relations efforts.”

“Our all-new resort brings a fresh island design and local flavor to the hospitality market on Hilton Head Island,” said Jay Wiendl, general manager of Sonesta Resort Hilton Head Island. “And, we’re excited to have partnered with The Brandon Agency to help us launch our new look and experience.”
