The Sanctuary at Kiawah
February is a bargain time to stay at the Sanctuary at Kiawah. It is still considered the winter season (i.e. lower rate) but it usually gets pretty warm towards the end of the month. The rate almost doubles starting in March when the spring rate kicks in. We initially booked an oceanview room (which was really a pool-facing room with partial oceanview) but decided to upgrade to an oceanfront room at check in. The south-facing balcony with an ocean view like this was totally worth the upgrade. We found out that it was cheaper to upgrade at the front desk than booking an oceanfront room upfront. However, one runs the risk of no availability.
If you want to stay active, the resort offers golf, tennis, and a range of other activities. We took some great private lessons at Roy Barth Tennis Center. The rate was very reasonable starting at $75 per hour (go for the head coach if possible for $5 more). There is one drawback with this resort that they charged extra for activities that are usually complimentary, especially in light of the expensive room rates. For example, $20 per person for morning yoga class, $12 per person for half-day bike rental, etc.
