What more needs to be said? Kiawah Island Resort has captured every major accolade in the travel universe- and all of these awards are well deserved. For years, one of the most naturally beautiful coastal resorts in the US, the addition of The Sanctuary in 2005 has elevated the resort to world class stature. Hundreds of villas and private homes in rental program including the newest addition, Maritime Villas, featuring 2800 square foot, ultra-luxury, 4 bedroom villas 10,000 acres, largely untouched by development- one of the original "environmentally friendly" resorts in the US.

With careful attention to every design detail during the construction of the hotel, while zealously guarding the dunes, the marine forest, and the indigenous wildlife, Kiawah manages to remain true to the original developer's purist philosophy while providing their guests with loads of recreation options and creature comforts second to none!
