The Sanctuary is designed to provide the most luxurious oceanfront experience on the east coast. The setting is truly extraordinary in that the hotel is just 50 yards from the beautiful Kiawah Beach. The natural surroundings are both exclusive and private in fact you can see the waves of the ocean from almost everywhere in the hotel including the 2 dining rooms/ both bars/ the grand lobby and even the beautiful pools which are only steps from the beach.

Beach Expert Tips & Helpful Hints
  • Kayak salt marshes by day, take a twilight guided tour, or watch the sun sink and listen as nocturnal wildlife begins to stir.
  • Try coastal fishing off the sandbar, where some of the more challenging catches include large sharks, redfish, and barracuda.
Aptly named, the Sanctuary at Kiawah Island rests on ten miles of private beach and offers respite from the worries of daily life. Priding itself on excellent service and impeccable standards, vacationers will enjoy world-class accommodations in a beautiful and serene location. The hotel affords guests direct access to a lengthy stretch of private beach, a luxurious spa, a premier golf course, and two outdoor pools.
