About The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort

Seventeen years ago, Kiawah Island Golf Resort opened the doors of The Sanctuary, a luxury, oceanfront, 255-room hotel, dedicated to providing the highest level of guest service and satisfaction. Within those twelve years, The Sanctuary has achieved recognition as being among the finest hotels in the United States, having been awarded both the Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond awards. The Hotel includes two year-round dining rooms, both overlooking the beautiful waters of the Atlantic Ocean, plus a full service poolside grill during season and, of course, private in-room dining through the Hotel’s Room Service Department. Guests of The Sanctuary also have access to one of very few Spas in the United States that hold the Forbes Five Star award. In addition, the Hotel offers over 16,000 square feet of beautifully appointed banquet space, with spacious, sweeping lawns as added venue options. The Lobby Bar, which is one of the highest scoring Five Star lounges in Forbes’ rating history, affords ocean views, a full assortment of beverages and casual dining opportunities. Guests can also choose to stay in the Hotel’s Club Level, where they are pampered with continuous food & beverage service, plus the assistance of a personal concierge throughout the day.
Kiawah Island Golf Resort offers guests of The Sanctuary a multitude of additional amenities, including ten miles of wide, immaculate, ocean beach on which one might walk or cycle for hours without interruption. Soothing by day, utterly romantic by night, the beach is complemented by the island’s river, meandering lagoons and pristine marshlands, closing each sun-washed day safe beneath its own star-studded southern sky. There are also five nationally ranked golf courses, including The Ocean Course, host of the 2012 PGA Championship and 2021 PGA Championship. Two tennis centers, the largest Recreation Department of any resort in the United States, plus additional dining opportunities and banquet venues in three full service clubhouses, afford guests unlimited opportunities for enjoyment.
