Kiawah Island Golf Resort

1 Sanctuary Beach Dr., Kiawah Island, South Carolina, 29455, United States

Choose from one- to four-bedroom villas, three- to eight-bedroom private homes, or the Sanctuary at Kiawah Island, an amazing 255-room luxury waterfront hotel and spa that is one of the most prestigious resorts in the country and yet is still kid-friendly. Its vast lobby is stunning, with a wonderful collection of art and walnut floors covered with hand-woven rugs. The West Indies theme is evident in the guest rooms, where bedposts are carved with impressionistic pineapple patterns and plantation-style ceilings have exposed planks painted white. A top-rated steak house, the Ocean Room, has incredible architectural details, including wrought-iron gates and a stained-glass dome. Along with the 10 miles of island beaches, recreational options include kayak and surfboard rentals, nature tours, and arts-and-crafts classes.
