The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Hotel Review

: This beachside hotel on South Carolina's Kiawah Island is a modern take on a grand 1850's seaside home ... a home that happens to be surrounded by ten miles of unspoiled beach, five championship golf courses and two highly-rated tennis centers. A dignified lobby is framed on either end by a grand staircase and towering murals based on Kiawah nature scenes. Ninety percent of the hotel's 255 guestrooms have ocean views. Amenities include wireless Internet access that reaches to the beach. The high-end Ocean Room steakhouse features New American cuisine and Savannah blacksmith John Boyd Smith's Kiawah-themed wrought iron gates. Jasmine Porch is the more casual of the hotel's two year-round restaurants, designed to look like a one-time stable, serving modern Lowcountry dishes. The second-floor spa offers a range of services, including a signature massage that uses velvet wraps filled with hot rice and herbs. Downstairs, a contemporary fitness center contains a 65-foot indoor pool and a cardio studio that hosts daily classes. Outdoor family and adult pools are a short walk from the building.
