Explore Kiawah Island Resort

The golf weekend has long been the guise for full-fledged bromances or grounds for big business deals. Tipping back tall boys and strolling along the greens are ideal catalysts for easy conversation and instant bonding, but no longer is the golf weekend a moniker for a mens-only affair, nor is it necessarily just a golf weekend. Kiawah Island Golf Resort on Kiawah Island, South Carolina, isn’t reserved solely for the sports fiends, the bachelor parties or deal negotiating getaways (though those are all still encouraged).

 “I don’t think there’s a luxury resort anywhere in the U.S. with such a broad array of top-rate activities and amenities available to guests,” says Mike Vegis, public relations director for the resort. “Not only is our hotel ranked as a Forbes Five Star-winner, so is our spa. The hotel’s top restaurant is the highest rated steakhouse in the U.S. Condé Nast Traveler’s latest Readers’ Choice poll rated Kiawah Island as the No. 1 island in North America and named us the No. 2 golf resort in the U.S., the Ocean Course is named the No. 4 public course in the U.S. by both Golf Digest and GOLF magazines; and Tennis Magazine named us the No. 3 tennis resort in the U.S., while Tennis Resorts Online named us the No. 1 tennis resort in the world.”  Add to Vegis’ enthusiasm the fact that the resort is only 21 miles from historic Charleston and you’ve got an all-around crowd pleaser here. Meaning, essentially, that with its award-winning grounds, greens, amenities and dining, it’s a destination suitable for anyone looking for a luxury weekend away—whether that be a girlfriends getaway, work retreat, couples weekend, family vacation, or yes, even guys golf-a-thon.
