When it comes to location, service and sheer number of incredible activities, there's really no competition on the Southeastern coast. The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort is designed to look like you've stepped into a third-generation plantation right down to the hotel art, which is mostly from the 1800s. Definitely not centuries-old, however, are the posh facilities and 255 luxurious rooms and suites. The Club Level rooms are particularly memorable, as they come with a private concierge and elite lounge with four meal and cocktail presentations every day. The resort has won pages of awards for everything from their tennis offerings to their family-friendly environment. But with golf in its name, you won't be surprised to find it the focus here. They have five championship courses, including The Ocean Course, host of the 2012 PGA Championship. And if you need a little help with your swing, book some time in the Golf Learning Center. Golf not your thing? There's still plenty to keep you occupied, such as pools for families and adults and seven spectacular dining options. Hint: Fine dining eatery The Ocean Room is known for beef, but try the South-meets-East menu at its niche Sushi Lounge. The resort contacts every guest prior to arrival to become familiar with their needs and preferences, creating a more perfect stay. It's safe to say that this hotel is a seaside mansion with genuine southern hospitality!
