In case you needed a reason to relax, we’ve got one: National Relaxation Day is August 15. Taking time out to relax is associated with lower blood pressure, improved digestion, reduced muscle tension, and a slower heart rate, according to the Mayo Clinic. So make it a priority to press pause year-round with our favorite spots to relax for Kiawah Island residents and Club Members below.
Where to Relax on Kiawah Island
“Ahh” at the Sasanqua Spa
Available exclusively to Kiawah Island Club Members, the Sasanqua Spa is truly a retreat from the outside world. Calming, clean lines in soothing tones greet you as you indulge in a variety of rejuvenating treatments and services. Sasanqua sources its treatment ingredients from the Lowcountry, underscoring its commitment to strengthening mind/body connections through Kiawah Island’s beautiful natural environment.
Private baths galore at 44 River Marsh Lane
Cape Cod-style architecture reveals plush interiors at 44 River Marsh Lane, where relaxation is simply second nature. In addition to a pool and waterfront deck, this stunning property features 7 private bathrooms all perfect for a spa staycation. In particular, the master suite features a powder room with a crystal chandelier overlooking Kiawah’s tranquil marshlands. The room gives way to a ravishing master bath — close the mahogany double doors for total privacy as you soak in the oversized tub complete with water views. Or, escape to the on-site guesthouse, which features a full luxury bath that’s perfect for applying face masks in peace.
Sleek serenity at 35 Rhett’s Bluff Road
This striking home exudes a sleek atmosphere ideal for deep relaxation. Natural elements like warm woods and cool slate create a sense of peace and balance throughout the home, although the effect is particularly apparent in the master bath. Pale marble and wood-tone walls pair with a spacious double vanity and floor-to-ceiling glass shower and tub, while the unadorned mirrors reflect natural light brought in by a unique yet private window inside the shower. A pool and outdoor spa extend the sense of modern calm among Kiawah’s native flora and fauna.
Roman holiday at 130 Ocean Palms Court
Italianate details make 130 Ocean Palms Court feel like a museum in Florence, Venice, or Rome. Although this sprawling, oceanfront home sits on 1.3 acres of private land, its most sought-after square footage for relaxation is the third floor, which is entirely devoted to the master suite. Start a spa day by meditating in the private observation balcony before stepping into the marble-appointed bath for an extended soak. A steam shower and Jaccuzzi tub amplify the at-home spa experience. Once you’re fully relaxed, reinvigorate yourself with a stroll along the beach or simply by breathing fresh, salty air from the oceanfront terrace.
