The Sanctuary is one of the best hotels in Kiawah Island for vacationers visiting with golf clubs in tow. Known for its world-class courses and plantation-like building, the spot oozes luxury and charm. Not a golfer, but traveling with one? Do not worry: the Sanctuary is also considered the best oceanfront option among Kiawah Island hotels, and it has pools, tennis courts, a third-floor spa offering natural treatments, and beautiful, live oak-strewn lands that are perfect for afternoon strolls.

Like a super-sized Tara, the Sanctuary at Kiawah Island belongs to a fictional plantation family. In the morning room, a portrait of the “Mistress” presides over moss-green brocades, floral drapes, and porcelain bibelots. The “Master” hangs his hat in the lobby bar.
