Christmas at Kiawah


Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year with family and friends at Kiawah Island Golf Resort.

From Thanksgiving weekend right up until Christmas Day, the resort decks the halls and rolls out a roster of fun and festive activities to get you in the seasonal spirit – from The Sanctuary’s official tree lighting to craft making workshops and Santa’s Lowcountry Grand Arrival.

Of course, your Christmas Eve and Christmas Day meals will be served in style in our fine restaurants, including the festa dei sette pesci (feast of the seven fishes), a time-honored tradition that proudly lives on every Christmas Eve in Tomasso at Turtle Point.
