Kiawah Island Hotels: A Local's GuideKiawah (pronounced KEY-uh-wah) is one of the most beautiful barrier islands on the East Coast. Located 25 miles south of downtown Charleston, it is an uber-exclusive private resort that doubles as a town. In 2012, it will also host the PGA Golf Tournament at its famed Ocean Course – one of five championship golf courses on the island.
Kiawah offers several resorts, ranging from the classic Kiawah Island Golf Resort to the new and luxurious Sanctuary Hotel and Spa – one of South Carolina's two Forbes 5-star hotels. It also offers hundreds of vacation homes and villas.
With 10,000 acres, Kiawah truly is a world unto itself. You can drive to Charleston in just under half an hour, but we're not sure you'll want to! The beach is ten miles long, and it's perfect for boating, biking, fishing, kayaking, and even horseback riding. Kiawah also offers many choices for dining and shopping, most of which are located in Freshfield's village, located at Kiawah and Seabrook Island's shared entrance.
