The Spa at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island actually has two waiting areas; one is a standard sitting area with a few chairs, cucumber water and coffee tables with newspapers and magazines, while the other is a more relaxing and inviting space called the solarium. This room features a waterfall, plantation shutter windows looking out over the beautiful hotel grounds and a variety of refreshments such as homemade granola, nuts and fruit, a range of hot teas and cucumber water. You’ll also find more reading material in the solarium, comfortable lounge chairs and lots of greenery in a relaxing space that you’d expect from a Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star spa. We prefer the solarium space to the other waiting area, so we’d advise you to tell a staff member to have your therapist find you in the solarium, rather than The Spa at The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island’s regular waiting room.
