Simplicity of Wellness Retreat at Kiawah Island Golf Resort

The last time I visited Kiawah, I was twelve and fell in love with the native wild alligators that roamed about. Word of "Laurie's Alligator Fascination" spread and well you can imagine the Christmas presents that started rolling in. I'm actually still staring at a Steiff Alligator hand puppet. AND...I can't believe I just shared that with you.

When I return to this magical island paradise, I doubt the alligators will hold my attention as much as these ethereal guest bathrooms. Seriously, have you ever seen anything so beautiful? Luckily there's a very special retreat on the horizon.

The Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort will hold a special “Simplicity of Wellness” retreat October 21-25, 2009. This 5-day event will include treatments in the hotel’s Mobil 5-star spa, nightly speakers and workshops, fitness classes including Pilates, yoga and movement therapy, chef presentations on health eating and much, much more. God, I really need to go to this. REALLY.

According to spa director, Missy Hughes, guests will embark on a journey of understanding through a sampling of organic lifestyle choices. “This special event promises to enlighten the senses of its participants and educate them on the various ways to find balance in busy lifestyles.”

Spa personnel will assess their personal interests and customize a program based on their individual preferences. Following arrival, participants of the retreat can enjoy many of the following activities:

Three 60 minute spa services
Nightly keynote speakers highlighting mindfulness, nutrition, and positive living
Creative workshops
Morning beach walks
Marsh and ocean kayaking
Biking exploration
A variety of fitness classes including Mat Pilates, Yoga by the Sea, Movement Therapy
Chef presentations
Spa menu breakfasts, interactive lunches, and banquet style dinners

This package includes accommodations in the oceanfront, Mobil 5-star/AAA 5-diamond Sanctuary at Kiawah Island Golf Resort, meals, spa treatments and all activities listed, and starts at $3199 per person. The number of participants is limited, so early reservations are recommended.
