The Sanctuary Earns Five Star Rating

The Sanctuary

For the thirteenth consecutive year, The Sanctuary earns a Five Star rating in 2021. The recognition comes from Forbes Travel Guide, which bases its ratings of luxury properties around the globe using a thorough, objective evaluation system.

The Forbes Travel Guide also recognized The Spa at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort with Five Stars for the thirteenth year in a row, making it the only Five Star spa in South Carolina and once again positioning it among an elite handful of spas around the world to earn the prestigious rating.

“It is an honor to receive this distinguished recognition for both the hotel and the spa, particularly in a year that brought unprecedented challenges for the hospitality industry as a whole,” said Bill Lacey, General Manager of The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort. “To be recognized year after year for the level of service, amenities and accommodations we provide our discerning guests is a tremendous credit to our staff, which has continued to maintain the highest standards, making The Sanctuary one of the finest destinations in the world.”

With its star ranking system and unique process for rating hotels, Forbes Travel Guide is the only independent global rating system for the hospitality industry. In order to be rated, properties are stringently evaluated on 900 objective standards. The Forbes Travel Guide remains the world’s most trusted authority, relied upon by discerning travelers who depend upon it to remove the guesswork when making destination decisions.

For The Sanctuary and The Spa at The Sanctuary to perennially earn this award represents a remarkable achievement by the hotel’s dedicated and well-trained staff.
