An Alabama Hidden Gem You Didn’t Know About

This blog post is sponsored, however all opinions and thoughts are my own. 

Spring break was among us and we knew we wanted to visit a resort in Alabama. But honestly, I had never known of any in the state. That is to say, we decided that Renaissance Ross Bridge Resort & Spa in Birmingham Alabama would be the perfect spring break destination for us. 

One thing I enjoy about visiting Birmingham, Alabama is the rich culture of the city. It also helps that it is only a short 1 hour and 20 minute drive from where we live. 

Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa in Birmingham Alabama

Firstly, this resort is tucked away in a small community in Birmingham. I absolutely loved the location, and it felt as if I was far away from the inner city, but still had all the perks of feeling as if we were downtown. 

When we arrived at the resort, the valet staff quickly came to open our doors, and welcomed us to Renaissance Ross Bridge. 

My first impression of the property was how beautiful, and unique it was. The lobby was immaculate! The front desk staff was helpful, patient, and gracious. I was on my way to my room within 5 minutes of checking in. 

The safety measures that the resort has implemented during the pandemic were up to the state standards. Which made my husband and I feel confident in our stay.  

Our Room

We stayed in the beautiful Sloss Governors Suite. It was massive! The Governors Suite features 1 king bedroom, a dining room, a living room with a sofa bed, a kitchenette, 1 full bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, and a half bathroom off of the living room. One amazing surprise about this room was the balcony. You can access the balcony from the dining room, living room, or the bedroom doors. The balcony was one of my favorite spots to relax.  

The Pool

Renaissance Ross Bridge has 2 pools and 2 hot tubs. One pool and hot tub is located indoors and the other outdoors. So, this can meet the needs of whatever pool preference you may have. The outdoor pool area also features a slide, along with a small splash pad area. 

The Spa

The resort features a full spa. Yes, I said full. They handle waxing, skin care, massage, hair, manicure, pedicure, hydrafacials, and makeup. 

The Restaurants

The property has three restaurants and a bar on site. Brock’s, Front Porch, and Clubhouse. We enjoyed ordering room service the most!

There is also an outdoors seating area that features quite a few fire pits. Which is perfect for late night relaxation. 

The Golf Course 

Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail is one of the longest courses in the world, and it offers multiple tees for golfers of all levels. Though, we did not get a chance to golf this visit, we plan to come back without the kids to enjoy the golf course.

In short, we’d rate our stay at Renaissance Ross Bridge a 10/10. The kids are giving the resort a 11/10 because of the hot tub options. Haha.
