Set in South Carolina’s Lowcountry, The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort affords uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean.
After undergoing a multi-year expansion, the four-storey mansion elegantly encompasses the traditional Southern hospitality feel with a welcoming and dedicated staff. As you arrive, the tall oak trees and Spanish moss transport you to a world of tranquillity – less than 35 kilometres from the hustle of Charleston.
The grand and airy interiors are adorned with antiques and the rooms feature hand-carved wood and polished marble. With 16 kilometres of coastline, choose from 255 guestrooms and suites and enjoy the expansive views from your private balcony.
From angus beef and Lowcountry cuisine to blackened mahi mahi tacos, the three restaurants at The Sanctuary offer a well-rounded gastronomic selection with local produce.
Take your pick from five championship golf courses dotted across the island. Each designed by Pete Dye, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, Gary Player and Clyde Johnston. The Ocean Course has unobstructed views of the coast from each hole. While Tom Fazio’s Oak Point earned four-point-five stars in Golf Digest's Best Places to Play.
The resort is committed to conservation and sustainability to protect the surrounding nature and wildlife. From bobcat to white-tailed deer, explore Kiawah’s diverse ecosystem with a naturalist during a 11-kilometre bike tour around the island.
For in-house relaxation, The Spa at The Sanctuary offers a variety of treatments including the amethyst geo-lift facial harnessing the power of South Carolina’s natural gemstone.
