Duck Donuts and Sanderling Resort Introduce Donut-Themed Getaway

Duck Donuts and Sanderling Resort launched reservations for a donut-themed guestroom packed with donut-themed experiences, all baked together as "The Sweet Escape." Popping up in time to celebrate National Donut Day (June 4), "The Sweet Escape" will be available May 28 to June 30, 2021—because one day just isn’t long enough to honor one of America’s most popular treats.

Guests checking into "The Sweet Escape" at the AAA Four Diamond-rated, beachfront Sanderling Resort will be indulged in all things donuts. An entryway lined in donut wallpaper will lead to a spacious bedroom area decked out in donut bedding and Duck Donuts-branded pillowcases, topped off with a collection of donut throw pillows for added comfort (and the sweetest dreams).

Duck Donuts artwork will don the walls while donut seating and floor pillows will give an added space to lounge around. Picturesque views of the Outer BanksCurrituck Sound will be framed by rainbow sprinkle curtains. Donut pool floats and Duck Donuts and Sanderling Resort-branded beach towels, plus a "beachy" welcome tote (lined with Duck Donut goodies to take home) will make this donut-themed getaway an indoor-outdoor affair.

Upon arrival, guests will find dozens of freshly made Duck Donuts set throughout the room for easy access (i.e. to feed those donut cravings all day and all night). An in-room coffee bar stocked with Duck Donuts coffee and donut decorating kits will also be available. For a customized sampling from Duck Donuts’ made-to-order menu of endless flavor and topping combinations, guests can schedule a donut wake-up call through a dedicated donut concierge.

The Sweet Escape experience also includes a taste of Duck Donuts history: A behind-the-scenes tour of one of the original Duck Donut stores in Duck, North Carolina, located just a few miles from Sanderling Resort. “As the country begins to recover from an exceptionally difficult period and people begin returning to travel, our team knew we needed to make this summer extra special,” said Geoff Young, managing director at Sanderling Resort, in a press announcement. “Part of what makes the Outer Banks such a unique destination is our local community and the experiences they create for those who visit—and that includes Duck Donuts.”

Sanderling Resort and Duck Donuts will wrap up its "Sweet Escape" program with a social media giveaway set to run June 22 to June 30, 2021. One winner will enjoy a four-night stay at Sanderling Resort and a tote bag with Duck Donuts perks, including coupons for free donuts, plus cups, koozies and more. Entries will be accepted on the @duckdonuts and @sanderlingresort Instagram pages. Reservations for "The Sweet Escape" can be made at
