David Sklar, Kelly Caron collaborate for oceanfront venue at The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa

The Grand Ocean Terrace, an all-glass oceanfront event venue, is the final piece of the resort’s $40 million renovation.

The Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa has opened The Grand Ocean Terrace, a new all-glass oceanfront event venue that is the final piece of the resort’s $40-million renovation.

The Grand Ocean Terrace has unobstructed ocean views elevated above beach level, and more than 5,000 square feet of space that can host up to 400 guests. Glass walls slide open to a full-length covered balcony overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, while the interior has a coastal design. The adjacent stone patio with fireplace overlooks a beachfront deck that may also be used for events.

David Sklar and Kelly Caron collaborated on The Grand Ocean Terrace, with the design reflecting the history and natural elements of the Carolina Coast. There are also artworks from artists in the local community. Other design elements came from Savannah Hardscapes, Distinctive Granite & Marble, and Lowcountry Originals.
