Enhancing the Attendee Experience

A destination that guests return to year after year, Kiawah Island Golf Resort maintains the delicate balance of celebrating time-honored traditions and providing exceptional new and elevated offerings, certain to enhance your attendees’ experience—whether during a group activity, leisure time or through an extended resort stay.

Memorable Event Spaces
Featuring stately architecture and gracious Lowcountry design details, The Sanctuary Chapel and its adjoining courtyard garden offer a one-of-a-kind backdrop for your breakout sessions, cocktail receptions, kickoff events and pre-event gatherings.

New Dining Unveiled
Catering to a favored daily ritual, two new options will open in 2022, designed to offer your attendees the pleasure of awakening to a cup of morning motivation—and so much more.

Nestled into the social center of the island at Night Heron Park, The Nest Market + Café is a relaxed gathering place serving specialty coffees and teas, made-to-order gourmet sandwiches and prepared selections that can be enjoyed at outdoor tables for alfresco dining. An array of “Take and Bake” meals and pantry items offer guests the opportunity to dine in the comfort and privacy of their Resort Villa, while a wide selection of sundries and keepsakes in the market add to the enjoyment of the island and help build fond memories.

Located on the main lobby level of The Sanctuary, attendees can visit Signature Gourmet Coffee Shop to savor freshly baked goods created by our nationally recognized executive pastry chef, along with a menu of hot and cold sandwiches, and specialty coffees and teas. Guests are invited to “plug in” and stay while enjoying their refreshments.

Ultra-Exclusive Accommodations
Ideal for elite incentive travel and executive retreats, The Cottages at The Ocean Course provide an unparalleled immersion in championship golf. With a dedicated concierge to personalize the stay, guests enjoying these accommodations are treated to elevated amenities, including daily rounds of golf, unlimited use of The Ocean Course driving range, daily breakfast, customized welcome gifts and the option to have the bar and kitchenette pre-stocked with preferred beverages, among others. Incomparable views of the Atlantic Ocean, The Ocean Course and Clubhouse—and the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of the greatest players in professional golf—complement the bespoke collection of exclusive cottages that reside on the sea and course.

Expanded Culinary Experiences
Attendees can now begin their day with breakfast at Cherrywood BBQ & Ale House, where resort guests have long dined on the region’s best BBQ, smoked over local hardwoods and served with savory house-made sauces. Tomasso at Turtle Point, home of contemporary Italian dishes fused with local Lowcountry flavors, has extended its service to include lunch specialties.

Family-Friendly RecreationFor attendees who would like to travel with their families or extend their resort stay, Night Heron Park provides a recreation and relaxation hub for all ages. Adults can maintain the most rigorous of workout regimens in the well-equipped, newly expanded fitness center. Children can enjoy the life of a day “kamper” at Kamp Kiawah or find entertainment in the park’s new and enhanced playground. Families can make a splash together in the pool complex, tap into their creativity with Turtle’s Nest Art Studio offerings or explore our wondrous island habitat as part of the nature program. 

Guests will always find an exciting array of dining and recreational activities to enhance their meeting experience at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. Our group sales team is pleased to work with you to develop an inspiring and rewarding group gathering that surpasses all attendee expectations.
