When it comes to planning meetings and events here on Kiawah Island, there are a few questions we get over and over again. Questions like:
“What is there to do before or after my meeting at the Kiawah Island Golf Resort?”
We’re happy you’ve asked, because it just so happens, there’s plenty to see and do on the island.
Our meeting rooms and facilities on Kiawah Island are second to none, but what draws our guests here is much more than that. The island itself is an incredible place – ripe with beautiful beaches, stunning views, breathtaking sunsets, and of course, the lovely Kiawah Island Golf Resort. The island itself is what brings guests from near and far, looking to discover a little piece of paradise.
Beyond the meeting room, discover 5 things your delegates can see and do after your meeting on Kiawah Island:
1 – Get active on the island.
No matter your interests, activity level, or skill, there truly is something for everyone on Kiawah Island. When the day is done and it’s time for a little fun, give your guests the choice of many activities, including:
- Tennis: we offer 2 tennis compounds, as well as a tennis learning center
- Golf: the resort boasts 5 championship golf courses that span the island, including our signature Ocean Course (host of the 2012 and 2021 PGA Championship)
- Kayak: grab a paddle and hit the water!
- Hike or Bike: with over 36 miles of trails, there’s no shortage of area to explore
2 – Relax & unwind.
At the spa.
What could be better than ending a day of meetings by relaxing in absolute luxury at The Spa at the Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort – the complete escape for your body, mind and spirit.
Brilliantly inspired by the natural beauty of the South Carolina Lowcountry, our signature treatments and services will rejuvenate the senses, while our idyllic setting and Southern hospitality will soothe the soul.
Treat your delegates to massages, facials, skin treatments, manicures, pedicures, and much more.
At the beach.
White sand and crystal clear water await. And whether your guests choose to simply relax in the water, or enjoy beach activities, we’re confidant that our spanning miles of private, pristine beach will impress. If activities are what you desire, take your pick from volleyball, cornhole, horseshoes, and more.
3 – Indulge in chef-made meals & tastings.
From grand lawn space, elegant banquet rooms, to the Sanctuary Hotel Jasmine Porch and the Ocean Room, there’s nothing like a sumptuous meal after a day of meetings to bring your delegates together to unwind when the day is done. Our chefs take pride in their delectable meals – featuring the best of local, fresh ingredients.
Or, instead of a traditional sit down meal, treat your guests to an interactive cooking demonstration, wine and food pairing, or wine tasting event.
4 – Hit the shops.
There’s no shortage of variety in things to see and do before or after your meeting on Kiawah begins. On top of outdoor activities, spa visits, and culinary escapades, guests will also enjoy shopping excursions in our very own Sanctuary shopping wing.
Located in its own sun-filled foyer, The Sanctuary’s shopping wing houses a carefully selected collection of fine stores offering gourmet and specialty gift items, logoed golf apparel for men and women, Kiawah merchandise and gifts, fine collectable and Irish crystal, exquisite women’s apparel and jewelry, and fine contemporary and Lowcountry-inspired art.
