Looking Ahead: Best Practices for Group Gatherings

The past few months have necessitated that organizations examine the way they conduct business and how best practices will evolve to ensure the health and wellbeing of their most valuable asset—their employees. Planners will need to identify a destination that can meet these standards for their future meetings, training sessions, conferences, events and incentive travel.

A Location Away from it All
When the time comes to gather your team, attendees will demand a destination that makes them feel comfortable and at ease. As a private property situated behind security gates on an unspoiled barrier island, Kiawah Island Golf Resort offers both seclusion and unspoiled surroundings for your group to enjoy the serenity and natural beauty.

Pristine Facilities
Having just opened its doors in March, the West Beach Conference Center offers 23,000 square feet of fully customizable spaces—including a 10,000-square-foot ballroom that is divisible into six smaller rooms. Eleven additional breakout rooms with oversized windows let in an abundance of natural light and open onto inspiring island panoramas. Rounding out the portfolio of event spaces at Kiawah Island Golf Resort are a range of flexible indoor and outdoor venues accommodating groups of 12 to 1,000.

Private Accommodations
Well-suited to large gatherings and delivering expansive spaces for attendees to relax and feel at home, Resort Villas with private entrances offer easy access to event venues and island amenities. Of course, when it’s time to reward your top team members, The Sanctuary—a 5-Star, 5-Diamond oceanfront hotel—is the ideal destination for corporate incentive travel.

Dynamic Dining
To suit your group’s sensibilities, Kiawah Island Golf Resort offers an array of choices across 14 restaurants, poolside cafes and locally-inspired eateries on the property. From gourmet dining in a premier steakhouse to a traditional oyster roast along the banks of the Kiawah River, there is a dining experience that will satisfy everyone.

Fresh-Air Pursuits & Personal Wellness
The Resort’s five championship golf courses—all recently renovated and in pristine condition—invigorate players of every skill level. Non-golfers can even learn the game from trained professionals on staff. Pro tour fans will be awed by The Ocean Course, home to the 1991 Ryder Cup and 2012 PGA Championship. The course will once again play host to the PGA Championship next year.

Ideal for both team-building and downtime, the Resort’s more than 100 recreational activities—including paddle sports, fishing and more—offer pleasurable pursuits for outdoor enthusiasts. Nature lovers can participate in excursions that put the spotlight on the island’s native species. For attendees seeking relaxation, Kiawah boasts one of America’s best beaches as well as a 5-Star spa with wellness treatments inspired by its idyllic coastal environment.

The sales team at Kiawah Island Golf Resort looks towards working with you and welcoming your guests. We invite you to take advantage of an unparalleled offer available on resort group bookings through the end of the year.
