I spent four days here off season for a conference. I can't say enough about the natural beauty of this resort. It's gorgeous. But not for a conference. The meeting facilities were nice but small. My biggest complaint is the layout of the resort is vast and doesn't lend itself to getting together with other attendees. My condo was beautiful... More

My husband and I travel extensively, and we expected this resort to offer top-notch accommodations given the price. Our cottage (in the Night Heron area) was a mix between mid-range condo and low-end cabin, with the bathrooms in serious need of renovation. The interior was decidedly worn. Check-in time is 4:30 pm. We arrived at 3:45 and were told that... More

Went to Kiawah island for a golf trip with my sons. Played Turtle Point, Osprey and the Ocean Course. Osprey fairways were pretty bad. Course discounted the greens fees for us. Very fair. Turtle Point greens had a greens fungus. All greens had some kind of issue. Course pro would not discount the green fee. His staff's response was "not... More

Stayed at the Windswept Villas; clean, but the décor needs updating. Service was great. The Ryder Club is a great experience; the food is great. However, I was disappointed in the golf. I played golf at Ocean and Turtle Point and the greens were in terrible shape. Turtle Point had fungus issue on most of the front nine greens and... More

For an amazing -- and EASY -- family getaway, you can't beat Kiawah. One call will have beach chairs set up for you, bikes delivered, or a shuttle waiting at your door. Most places can offer you either a serene escape *or* convenience, not both. Kiawah is the exception. With miles of bike trails, kids programs, heated/chilled pools, tennis, golf... More

This was an awesome vacation for spring break. Husband golfed, kids did all of the activities at the Nature center and craft activities, and I enjoyed the beautiful scenery and beach. The food was fabulous at all of the restaurants. The kids love the snack bars and ice cream parlors. Everyone was so friendly and helpful in getting us into... More

We recently spent a week here on the recommendation of several friends and found it a surprisingly beautiful place for such a large resort. We spent part of the week in a villa on the ocean which had a great view but was somewhat dated and the rest of the week in a smaller house which was delightful. We loved... More

We love everything about Kiawah Island! This was our third annual getaway with friends and tho the weather was cold and somewhat rainy we managed two days of golf and enjoyed every minute! Customer service is alive and well wherever you go on the Island. Our Villa was beautiful and our traditional dinner by the fireplace at the Ryder Cup... More

Tucked away in rolling marsh and sandy beaches is Kiawah Island and the Kiawah resort. From the moment you pass the guard tower you are transported to a different time and place. From the lobby to the conference facilities and the shops, homes, condo's, and golf courses. This place has it all..

A trip to Kiawah is a glimpse of heaven. The location is like a dream world; with nights so dark and silent and days so fresh and free. The staff, accommodations and scenery are outstanding. You will be treated like royalty from the minute you arrive until the warm goodbye and invitation to return.
