U.S. News Review

If you want a quiet, stress-free getaway, The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort might be just the place. Sitting right on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean, this hotel is a destination unto itself. Sun-seekers will feel right at home here with five championship golf courses and plenty of outdoor recreational activities, while on-site amenities like a spa will make your stay on Kiawah Island rejuvenating. When it's time to bed down, rooms include Italian linens and robes, a marble walk-in shower and a balcony with ocean or dune views. Recent guests recommend splurging on an oceanview room to fully appreciate the hotel's idyllic setting. But if you're hoping to explore Charleston, be warned this hotel is located approximately 26 miles south of the city.
