Yes, it's a lofty statement to make, but a cluster of recent awards give Kiawah Island Golf Resort a legitimate claim to the title of America's best resort. The latest saw The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, the Resort's luxury hotel and spa, achieve the coveted AAA Five Diamond rating - only two years after it opened its oceanfront doors.
"So what?", you might be thinking. After all, resorts and hotels frequently trumpet their own horn with ratings and rankings.
Well, look closely and you'll see that aside from the awards consistently rating Kiawah among the nation's finest, they are also diverse.
It's no secret that most resorts specialize in one facet of business. And while Kiawah's full resort name indicates its forte is golf, recent awards show recognition for much, much more (i.e., accommodations, tennis, spa, family travel). There's also the intangible: by definition, most resorts are far removed from major vacation destinations. And while Kiawah is secluded (on a 10-mile-long barrier island), it is not excluded. Historic Charleston, perennially ranked as one of America's favorite places to visit, is only 30 minutes away.
When the Resort built The Sanctuary in 2004, it did so with the goal of creating a hotel that would help elevate a well-respected and naturally beautiful resort into the best in the country.
So, we ask you: does Kiawah possess America's finest resort? As a journalist, we're sure you'll have at least an inkling to find out for yourself. Maybe you've visited Kiawah before and need affirmation? After all, much has changed in the past two years, and the Resort will continue to evolve. Whether you're interested in visiting, including Kiawah in a round-up story or simply wish to gather more information, the media contact is below. We look forward to hearing from you.

Since residential development began in the mid-1970s, preserving and protecting natural beauty has always been the driving philosophy behind land use and development. Today, Kiawah's development plan remains the model for conservation, enhancement of open space, and preservation of the Island's environmental integrity.
The long-range vision of Kiawah's master plan was for Kiawah to be one of the first successful marriages of a resort and a residential community. This vision has come to fruition, resulting in a host of accolades for Kiawah Island, including the Urban Land Institute's Award for Excellence in community planning, the American Society of Landscape Architects' National Merit Award for ecological planning, Audubon Certified Cooperative Sanctuary (The River Course and The Ocean Course), and 2007 Pinnacle Award for Excellence in Homebuilding for Cassique Garden Cottages. Also in keeping with the original vision, Kiawah has a cap on the eventual total number of homes that will be built, underscoring the commitment to preserving natural habitats.
For the property owner, access to Kiawah Island's uncommon natural beauty and pristine beaches is raised to a higher level. Owning property on Kiawah Island grants exclusive entrance to private island venues, select beach access points, and secluded community gatherings through amenities such as the Kiawah Island Club, The Sandcastle, the Kiawah Island Community Association, and the Governor's Club.
