Choose Kiawah Island for the Ultimate Mother’s Day Getaway

Tomasso Mother's Day Lunch
Treat mom to a festive taste of Italy at Tomasso at Turtle Point.

Celebrate your mother for an entire weekend by hosting her for Mother’s Day at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. Regardless of whether your mother’s idea of perfection involves a relaxing day at the spa, culinary indulgence, a tennis match or round of golf, or communing with nature, the resort offers a perfect place for you to spend quality time with mom.

Mother’s Day Dining

Whether you stay in The Sanctuary Hotel or a Resort Villa — or possibly even host multiple generations in a sprawling private home — treat mom to a delectable culinary weekend ranging from simple to extravagant. Stop by Beaches & Cream on the lobby level of The Sanctuary on Mother’s Day for a complimentary ice cream or coffee as our treat to mom. Don’t miss the chance for a special toast to mom either pre- or post-brunch at the hotel’s elegant Lobby Bar.

As far as brunch itself goes, keep it regional at Jasmine Porch, where chefs will present a Mother’s Day brunch buffet featuring regional favorites as well as a small selection of special items inspired by their mothers’ favorite dishes. And be sure not skip dessert.

A little farther east on the island, Chef Derick Wade at Tomasso at Turtle Point will bring a little taste of Italy to the Carolina Lowcountry with a special Old World inspired à la carte Mother’s Day brunch menu.

At the far east end of the island, mom will enjoy the stunning views of the Atlantic as much as she will Chef John Ondo’s cuisine during a special Mother’s Day Brunch at The Atlantic Room in The Ocean Course Clubhouse. It will also give mom a chance to express her own culinary creativity with a special Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar.


What better way to show your appreciation and pamper your mom than a day at The Spa at The Sanctuary? Recognized as one of the world’s best spas by Forbes Travel Guide, which recognized the spa with its enviable Five Star rating, there is perhaps no greater way to honor you mom on her special day than to arrange one of our signature treatments for her. With décor inspired by Charleston’s soothing and mysterious gardens, courtyards and piazzas and treatments inspired by Kiawah’s seaside setting, mom will forget all the cares in the world. Whether she chooses a facial, a massage or a restorative skin treatment — or a combination of each with one of our Inspired Sequences — she will leave feeling like the most pampered woman on earth.


If mom relishes time on the course or on the court, be sure to book a tee time at one of our five championship course or court time at the internationally recognized Roy Barth Tennis Center.  For an added touch, arrange a lesson with one of our outstanding PGA professionals at the Tommy Cuthbert Golf Learning Center (or get the family involved through a group lesson) or with one of our tennis instructors either through individual lessons or a group clinic.

If mom’s tastes lean more towards the adventurous, plan an expedition through Resort Recreations. It may be as mild as a beach yoga session or as wild as one of our Back Island Birding expeditions. But with warm temperatures coming early to the Lowcountry to chase off winter’s blues, she may be perfectly happy sunning herself poolside or on the beach. The most important thing: treat her to a Kiawah Island getaway, and she’ll truly realize she’s the most treasured mom around.
