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.

Fantastic couple getaway.

Overall our experience was amazing. Super fancy place, awesome location, very helpful staff, and quick convenient transportation. As a younger guy the only down side to the place is that everything closes super early. By 8:00 just about everything on the island but room service is closed. Also the rooms could have been slightly nicer for the price. Overall A+ though as a whole.

exclusive resort

we've never stayed at such an elegant resort. beautiful hotel, excellent service, comfortable room, lovely ocean side location. only one disappointment. room was on first floor and the only way we could see the ocean was if we walked out on the porch. our room description on the sight called it an ocean view. we actually only had a lawn view.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

meals at the hotel were excellent, but pricey. there is a casual market a short distance from the resort where people can get more reasonably priced meals.
