We begin to droop and languish as the temperature rises. So we were happy to find that the signature spa, Auberge Spa at Palmetto Bluff at Inn at Palmetto Bluff in South Carolina rescues the wilted with an invitation to relax and enjoy a bath or a massage in gracious Southern style.

Fifty cottages and cottage suites dot the banks here along the May River in South Carolina's Lowcounty spread around the Inn's Main House. With restaurants, bar, meeting rooms and ballroom, this is a "swellegant" place to stay. Pair that with an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course and tennis, bocce and croquet courts and you've got major fun, but it's the full-service Spa at Palmetto Bluff, located on a private island adjacent to the Inn, that embraces the laid-back Southern vibe for you.

Here's how your depleted selves can best utilize the spa:

The Southern Orchards spa-only package starts with a soak in a tub on a private veranda. Your tub overlooks a bird rookery on conservation land in a freshwater estuary and the sounds of the birds surround you as you soak. ' Nectar Milk' is poured into your tub and when they hand you a special concoction to drink, the Blood Orange Breeze, you are alone, out in the altogether, just you and nature. Following the soak, you'll be exfoliated with a Citrus Grass salt scrub and cocooned in Honeysuckle Blood Orange Custard. Yes, it is custard!

The 30-minute Custard Massage is last Southern touch in your orchard experience. It's $300 for 120-minutes for one person. Wanna stay overnight? Rates for a Forest View or Lagoon View Cottage begin at $425 for two; upgrade to a River View Cottage and rates are $510 for a weekday stay right now. No minimum stay required.

All rooms have screened-in porches, wet bar with Sub-Zero refrigerator, down bedding and Italian linens, bath with steam shower and separate soaking tub and custom-blended organic bath and body products. Pet friendly cottage suites are available. Wi-Fi is complimentary as is parking, valet and use of Fitness Center and Canoe Club pool.
