After a quick check-in and personal escort by Byron to our Villa overlooking one of the many ponds, we stepped into a bright and refreshing two-bedroom/two-bath villa that was as comfortable as advertised. We had a special conference rate of $245.00 which was a wonderful value for all the space and the convenient location. The private patio porch with ceiling... More

Everything about this hotel is wonderful. The property is well maintained and the rooms are lovely and are terrific. The staff at all levels is well trained, attentive, and far exceeded my expectations (and I am a very frequent traveler). The activities on the island were equally impressive, and our boat tour of the rivers/mud flats was very unique, with... More

Stayed at the Sanctuary Resort on Kiawah for a business meeting. They were super accommodating and the meeting spaces were very nice - bright, up to date. It was cold when we were here so our ability to enjoy outdoor spaces was quite limited, but overall it was a very pleasant stay. The staff are very nice and service was... More

From the ride in, to the gorgeously decorated lobby, to the luxurious room I knew I was in for a real treat. From there the immaculately manicured grounds and the accommodating staff further accentuated the experience. Housekeeping came twice a day, which was really nice for turn down service, to bring ice and snacks at night (without asking). All of... More

One of our most favorite resorts! This is our second visit and plan to make it an annual event. It is a beautiful hotel on one of most beautiful islands. Beautiful scenery for bike rides, both on the beach and inland. Staff is superior. The dining experience is spectacular. So nice to have the 'on demand' shuttle service so we... More

One of the best hotel experiences I have had in North America. Well trained staff and a great facility provide something for everyone. This facility is obviously structured towards golf, but if you do not play, fear not there is really a tremendous amount of other activity (or lack of activity if you choose) here. There are many different restaurant... More

There is nothing about this hotel that you will not like if you want to feel pampered by the staff, have a relaxing visit, and enjoy some wonderful accommodations and services. You are definitely paying for location on the Kiawah beach ( which in my estimation is the best of the Carolina's) I've stayed in many 5 star hotels and... More

Absolutely delightful! Accommodations were spacious, clean and well appointed. Restaurants were amazing with so many choices. We enjoyed playing on the lawn with the children, taking long walks on the beach and all of the extra touches. My children looked forward to the nightly surprises left for them by their pillows. Can't wait to return!
