The Dunlin


A quintessential Southern retreat

Evoking the spirit of old-time summer retreats, The Dunlin’s 72 cottage-style guest rooms and 19 sun-washed villas overlook the glittering Kiawah River. The main lodge is the heart of the resort where you can rock in wicker chairs on the wraparound wooden porch or enjoy cocktails from a riverside pool cabana as the sun sets over the marsh savannahs. Solace can be found at the full-service spa, while the lounge bar and dining room are set up for multigenerational mealtimes. Simple and honest cuisine lets farm-fresh ingredients shine, adding wholesome flavor to the kitchen’s Southern American culinary profile. Farther afield, you have access to an endless array of outdoor activities from beach excursions to flyfishing.

Escape to the Charleston countryside

Cool breezes blow through cottage-inspired guest rooms and river-view cabanas shaded by lush native trees. Large furnished porches offer a peaceful oasis to hear the birdsong of Carolina Wren as you page through a good book or catch up with loved ones. Inside, honey oak floors, white beadboard walls and mint green and wicker accents nod to classic southern style, while deep soaking tubs, built-in closets and linen fabrics stamped with signature prints add an atmosphere of home.
