Wonderful Rooms!

Reviewed 30 november, 2021

Stayed here four nights over Thanksgiving and was very pleased with the experience. The best part was our lovely room. We booked an oceanview king room, which overlooked the pool and beach to the west. Upon arrival, we watched the most awesome, colorful sunset from our balcony. The bathrooms have a "window" with shutters that open to rest of the room, which makes for a cozy and not-so-lonely bath of an evening, with one's loved one in the room able to see and talk with you as you soak in the tub. The room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. One of the nicest rooms we've stayed in with regard to warmth and visual appeal. Wonderful to be able to walk right out to the beach each morning and evening. House keeping was excellent. The hotel in general is gorgeous and offers various activies for a fee. We took the "gator walk," which was interesting. We also rented bikes and very much enjoyed the extensive trails over the island, which is really peaceful. Only one small village on the island, without any fast food joints. We liked that the golf courses are mostly hidden by trees and foilage. We ate a few times at The Ocean Room and Jasmine Porch, both of which were great, but very expensive. There aren't many restaurant options on the island, and they know it. So, their prices are really high and way way more than it could have cost for the food and prep. We don't mind paying for a nice meal and expect prices to be higher in resorts, but what they charged for the breakfast buffet and holiday buffet was robbery. We had fun at the oyster roast! We'd definitely return (and maybe plan to eat in the village more often).

Amazing hotel!!!!

Reviewed 28 november, 2021

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here 2 nights in November, 2021. What an amazing hotel! From the staff, to the rooms, to the activities to the restaurants and spa all are top notch amazing. The service was impeccable. The hotel is gorgeous sitting right on the beachfront. The outside of the hotel is also beautiful. They have several golf courses, each individual course containing their own golf shop and restaurant on site. My husband golfed at Turtle Point. He said it was a gorgeous course. I had a massage at the spa. The spa was just beautiful, impeccably clean and just beautiful. There is a sauna, jacuzzi, whirlpool, steamroom and several quiet areas where you can help yourself to citrus water, tea and snacks. It is a total spa experience. The main part of the hotel contains several seating areas, all with floor to ceiling windows to allow for views of the ocean from every area. There are bars, snack bars, fireplaces and lots of open space. The resort has an on site chapel too and bikes for rent. They also offer outdoor nature activities and kayaking. There are several shops on site as well, and an art gallery. What more could you ask for? Oh, and the room. What a room! We were given a free upgrade to our surprise which turned out to be a top floor ocean view room with two queens beds and a private covered balcony. The room was so beautiful and amazing with a private bar and fully stocked refrigerator along with a two full walk in closets, a huge bathroom with double sinks and a soaker tub. It was all just spectacular! In one word, just come here. You won't regret it. It is set amongst beautiful trees and walking paths. The restaurants were amazing too. We ate at the Jasmine Porch, The Atlantic Room and the BBQ place. They were all spectacular with amazing service. There is also a beautiful outdoor pool and outdoor jacuzzi with plenty of seating area. There is an indoor heated pool as well. The resort is tremendous. The resort also offers free shuttle service to all of the golf courses, restaurants and activities. We hope to be able to stay here again some day. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!!!

Five Star Service at a Five Star Resort!!

Reviewed 15 november, 2021

My wife and I celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary at the Sanctuary. The Resort is visually stunning and positioned in a premier location on Kiawah Island. The personalized service from every touch point of the Resort was truly exceptional! The Team Members were friendly, professional, and very responsive to any requests. The Sanctuary is a True Five Star Resort led by Bill Lacey and his Team, I would highly recommend this Resort to any discerning traveler looking for a World Class Resort Experience.

Awesome night away

Reviewed 12 november, 2021

Just a quick golf trip to Kiawah , we only stayed one night. It was flawless. The manager greeted us at the door for check in to our club level room - what a nice touch. We felt really welcomed. Our room was amazing - clean and quiet. Club lounge was great, snacks and light bites when we needed them most :) Breakfast was also really nice. We found this resort extremely clean and very meticulously taken care of, down to the smallest details. We can't wait to come back for another stay.

Poor customer service

Reviewed 12 october, 2021

Poor customer service and dirty accommodations. When we arrived there were dirty towels and trash on the stairs outside of the unit next to us and at the time of writing this 4 days later it is still there. The furniture was stained, some of which was from general use and small but other spots were simply from lack of cleaning. The best came when they decided to redo the roof on the condo obstructing our entrance with a port a potty. When asked to correct the problem we were told they don’t control that. I would not suggest booking through Kiawah management group.
