Just 20 miles outside Charleston, South Carolina lies Kiawah Island.
The Sanctuary, or should I say my sanctuary, is different from other resorts. The Sanctuary feels more like you are being welcomed into someone's southern mansion rather than checking into a hotel. You would never know that the numerous hallways lead to various restaurants and shops. The lobby has a living room feel, with windows overlooking a perfectly manicured lawn, not to mention a 2-minute walk to the ocean. Each room was perfectly decorated for the Christmas season. Check out the pictures from the Annual Tree-lighting ceremony here!
Ranked a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Hotel, The Sanctuary is THE place to stay on Kiawah Island. I mean, just look at how beautiful it is! Thanksgiving was the PERFECT time of year to go. The weather was 75 degrees and sunny every day. Luxury was at every turn with its championship golf courses, beaches as far as the eye can see, and over 10 different restaurants.
