Hotels

The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort has been awarded as the Best Luxury Hotel in the island. This beachfront hotel and spa combines the feel of a grand coastal mansion with modern resort features. Opened in August 2004, the four-story structure is designed for guest comfort, offering panoramic views and various amenities. The Sanctuary's landscaping involved moving over 400 trees, including 160 large Live Oaks, using a significant mechanical spade.

This gave the resort an established look right from the start. The hotel itself is elevated twenty feet so all guests, even on the ground floor, have clear views of the Atlantic Ocean. The interior of The Sanctuary prioritizes detailed design and Southern hospitality. It features spacious areas with a light Southern décor, enhanced by antique furnishings that contribute to its elegance. The lobby boasts high ceilings above walnut flooring, creating a welcoming luxury environment. The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort is committed to offering a high-quality, peaceful, and enjoyable experience for its guests.

I’ve been going here for years, it’s wonderful! The rooms are well appointed like the rest of the hotel. The guys at the beach are fabulous, Robbie and Albert took great care of us! Donalyn at the Ocean Room is always so kind.

The Sanctuary was a beautiful property within a golf community. The room was fantastic - large, comfortable and a killer view. Bathroom was modern and stocked with plenty of amenities. This was a five star experience.

This hotel is the epitome of historic southern charm. The lobby is elegant, with piano music playing most evenings and a great bar. The views and courtyard are beautiful. The location is right on the beach. The rooms are decorated in a more classic decor.

One of the few truly oceanfront luxury hotels on the east coast, The Sanctuary is staffed by the finest service professionals you will meet. While Kiawah is noted for its spectacular Ocean Course that challenges golfers of all skill levels.

The property is gorgeous. Rooms are spacious, spotless, and well equipped. Restaurants on the property and accessible by shuttle are great and each has something to offer. Room service was excellent and prompt. The vibe is resort casual but not stuffy.

Simply the best- beautiful wide smooth beach, with excellent service from happy beach attendants. Don't miss the floor to ceiling wall murals inside the hotel at each staircase. Shops are a bit pricey, but worth a stroll through.
