I enjoyed a blissful facial at the spa. I also enjoyed the other spa amenities, which include a mineral whirlpool, dry sauna, and steam sauna, as well as a lounge and solarium where you can rest, read, and enjoy light snacks and beverages. The steam sauna was not working properly while I was there, but no worries. There is plenty... More

Went for a message. Yes its pricy - but you are treated like royalty. You can use the facilities and truly forget about your cares. The message was excellent and everyone is there to make sure you are happy. Nothing something I do often. But this is one worth doing.

I always look forward to a trip to the Spa at the Sanctuary when I am at Kiawah Island. The staff is always attentive and there are lots of amenities to enjoy. The treatment rooms are quiet with a very low county feel. Every therapist that I have encountered has been not only professional, but seem well versed in massage... More

The sea salt foot scrub was the best. It was such a hot and humid time to be on Kiawah Island and this Spring Tide Body Renewal massage for one hour definitely lifted the spirits. Treatment rooms have high ceilings, plantation shutters, local artwork....very South Carolina.

Everything about this spa is perfect. Clean, beautiful, relaxing. Great waiting rooms and locker areas. Get there early to enjoy the sauna, steam room and hot tub. This spa is one of the best parts of The Sanctuary.

My mom, sister and I spent the afternoon at the Sanctuary spa this past weekend. I expected this to be the nicest spa I have even been to given the high price point and the other superior features of the hotel - incredible rooms, restaurants, bar, shops, etc. Because of two slightly disappointing things, I am rating this a 3/5...

I am not stranger to spas. I have experienced Ten Thousand Waves in New Mexico, Mandarin Oriental in DC, several Elizabeth Arden locations and - by far - The Sanctuary Spa knocks the socks off of every other day spa out there. From the moment you walk in, you are treated like royalty. The staff escorts you on a tour... More

We went for massages in the mid-afternoon. The facility was not very busy, so was very tranquil. Before our massages, we were able to relax in the solarium room together while sipping citrus-infused water and having some light snacks. My husband had a deep tissue massage and I chose the standard massage. My husband and I had great massages; the... More

My favorite indulgence is a day at the spa. There is nothing more relaxing than unplugging from the day to day hustle and bustle and immersing my senses in the amenities of a good spa. The Sanctuary Hotel offers a number of spa services within the property's Luxury Spa. The property is very attractive and beautifully appointed in terms of... More

The Sanctuary is a really beautiful resort and the amenities at the spa were very nice. Staff were so friendly and helpful it was a pleasure to spend the day there. We had massages, then went for a really nice lunch and came back to soak and relax. They offered Yoga classes you could take in the morning before your... More
