Sanctuary at Kiawah Island

Last updated: 03 December, 2023

The most luxurious hotel on the private Kiawah Island resort, the Sanctuary was designed to feel like a classic Southern mansion, right down to the hand-planked walnut flooring in the lobby, allowing them to give and creak like older floor-boards.

Swish down the grand staircase in the main building and you’ll feel like a 1930’s film star; or find a shady spot in the state-of-the-art spa and pool complex – it’s size ensures there’s always a quiet space, whatever time of day you come to laze.

If you only play one of the five championship courses, tee off on the Ocean Course, consistently named one of the best in the world. Away from the greens, the island is lush with forest and parkland, with miles of walking and cycling trails for guests to explore.
