Exclusive Kiawah Resort Privileges

Only guests reserving directly through Kiawah Island Golf Resort can enjoy the total vacation experience that no other rental agency on the island can offer. We invite you to explore our Travel Update for details on how our preferred collection has been modified to ensure you can make the most of your stay with us.

Kiawah Resort pools

Night Heron Pool Complex

Mere steps from the beach in our family-favorite 21-acre park and recreational facility, you’ll enjoy exclusive, complimentary access to the Night Heron Pool Complex. The kids can make a splash in the children’s pool featuring two thrilling flume slides, mighty water cannons and a giant dumping bucket while the little ones navigate the toddler interactive play area, complete with alligator slide and baby bouncers. The Junior Olympic-sized family pool is ideal for swimming laps while the surrounding sundeck provides the perfect vantage point to keep one eye on the kids and the other on the book you’ve been saving especially for vacation. Both pools are heated in the spring and fall and cooled in the summer for your family’s complete comfort. Plus Night Heron Grill is open seasonally to tempt you with delicious poolside food and beverages.


West Beach Pool Complex

Enjoy complimentary use of our West Beach Pool Complex (open seasonally). Resort guests have exclusive access, so your children can play in the pool, unlike families who arrange their island accommodations through other rental agencies. Imagine your kids shooting down tube slides and perfecting their cannonball jumps into the five-foot depth area as younger siblings tackle their own slide and splash zone with interactive spray features. Hungry for some south of the border flavor—including specialty margaritas? Dine poolside (in season) at West Beach Cantina, where Mexican cuisine is creatively infused with a flavorful Kiawah Island twist.


Golf Savings & Preferred Tee Times

Adding even more value to your Kiawah Island Golf Resort reservation, you’ll receive savings of up to 25% at our world-renowned championship golf courses. This includes the iconic Ocean Course—home to the 2012 and 2021 PGA Championship, where even the pro tour’s top players have been challenged by the unpredictable Atlantic breezes buffeting all 18 ocean-view holes. Exclusive access to preferred tee times helps you make the most of your stay on Kiawah Island.

Tennis Discounts & Preferred Reservations

Ready to refine your game? Guests who reserve accommodations with Kiawah Island Golf Resort save up to 20% on tennis experiences and court time at our top-ranked tennis center. You also gain an advantage with exclusive access to preferential advance reservation times.

Recreation & Nature Programs

No matter what their interests, your entire family will find enjoyment in a carefully curated collection of  recreation and nature experiences—all at favorable resort guest pricing.
