The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island is everything you'd expect from a five star resort. Great location, great rooms, excellent service, and great food. The beach is perfect for strolling, bike riding, or just hanging out. If you feel the need to leave the property and explore, Charleston is only 30 minutes away and is a fantastic city for food, fun, and history. The Sanctuary is not inexpensive, but we definitely got our money's worth.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great but ask for one with an ocean view.

The location is totally beautiful ( island, landscaping, beach, views, lobby, rooms). But beyond that the service is lovely....quiet, friendly, welcoming. We ate at several restaurants, went to the spa, walked on the beach and everything was excellent. Make sure to spend time in the lobby , it's so relaxing and gorgeous. It makes having a drink seem like an occasion.

I have been there once a couple of years ago and my whole family was really wowed and impressed and my only problem was it too calm for my taste like Hilton Head and some people like this but not me but sure it will impress and the restaurant at the sunset time is amazing too!!

I believe I got a good deal because it was almost end of Fall or so.

This was our 5th stay at Te Sanctuary at Kiawah and it is even more breath taking as the 1st. The accomodations are awesome and you will not find a more accomodating staff anywhere!! The food at the Jasmine Porch is always good, and on this visit we also experienced the poolside lunch which was very good.

I would recommend The Sanctuary to anyone looking for awesome views and superior service!!

Room Tip: All rooms are spectactular!!

We had eaten at The Sanctuary but had never stayed there. We had been in the fabulous lobby but never the rooms. Wow! It was even better than expected and I tend to be a bit critical. The rooms were large, comfortable with excellent bedding, and large modern BRs. Fabulous view of ocean from balcony.
What really impressed me however was the incredible friendliness of the entire staff, from front staff, pool staff, beach staff, dining staff and even chambermaids. Obviously management muct really really emphasize to employees the importance of Southern Hospitality.
The Sanctuary is certainly not cheap, but I think it is nicer than The Lodge at Pebble Beach or The Pinehurst Hotel and maybe even The Broadmoor. It is comparable to The Sea Island Lodge or the Plaza Hotel in NYC.
Fabulous, highly recommended!

Room Tip: All good location. We faced the "yard" overlooking the Ocean.
