Sanderling Resort: Luxury amid the land, sea, and sky


The Sanderling Resort is located in Duck, North Carolina— a seven-mile stretch of land within the Northern Beaches of the Outer Banks. This sound-to-sea community holds a village-like charm, offering visitors a unique, small-town experience.

A stay at this luxury resort promises stylish sanctuary alongside dazzling views via a variety of lodgings. From single bed suites, to multi-room layouts, and even home rentals, there’s a space for everyone. Soak up the sea via one of the resort’s three private beach accesses, with resort-provided towels, chairs and umbrellas. Or take a dip into one of three resort pools, including the adults-only Tranquility Pool or the family-friendly Resort Pool.

Lifesaving Station Exterior

Relax after a long day in the sun with indulgent, coastal and seasonally inspired spa services. Sanderlings spa offers an avenue for rejuvenation for all walks of life, with hot sea stone and Swedish massages, hand and foot therapy, skin restoration treatments, gentlemen’s care, or salon and bridal services.

Sample the local farms and waters with Sanderling’s cuisine, which revolves around Executive Chef Brian Riddle’s personal motto: “Keep it fresh, keep it local, keep it simple.” Enjoy the casual three-meal-a-day Lifesaving Station restaurant, or pick up a take-out basket from the Sandbar, perfect for an afternoon beach picnic. Alternatively, Kimball’s Kitchen is perfect for an upscale meal, with expansive views, a world class menu, and a Wine Spectator Award-winning wine list.


Regardless of what inspires a visit the scenic beaches of Duck, a stay at Sanderling Resort promises an escape from the Queen City bustle— a taste of the sweet life, right alongside the salty Outer Banks coast.
