Just 30 minutes from the charm and grace of historic Charleston, SC, Wild Dunes Resort lies in a dreamy southern island town awaits on the Isle of Palms, a seven-mile-long barrier island with white sandy beaches along the Atlantic on one side and the marshy creeks of the Intracoastal Waterway on the other. Dotted with oceanfront bars and restaurants and known for its laid-back vibe, this isolated beach town is quiet enough from the hustle and bustle of downtown Charleston but has everything needed for an unforgettable escape given the beauty of being a resort destination.

Nestled on the northern tip of Isle of Palms sits Wild Dunes Resort – which occupies 1600 acres of fun and relaxation. An ideal retreat for just about anyone, including families, couples, girls’ getaway, golfers, tennis lovers, plus more. Wild Dunes offers 36 holes of Tom Fazio-designed championship golf year-round, nationally ranked tennis, on-site pickleball, bike rentals, spa services, an art gallery, resort pools, and plenty of restaurant options.


Like its amenities, Wild Dunes Resort offers a variety of accommodation options, including the AAA Four-Diamond rated Boardwalk Inn, the Residences at Sweetgrass, 180+ private condos, and luxury home vacation rentals. Most recently, the resort invested in a major expansion in March of 2020, unveiling the all-new Sweetgrass Inn.

Wild Dunes Resort’s new 153 room hotel, the Sweetgrass Inn, acts as the gateway to the resort by connecting the experience guests have known and loved for generations – with the next generation of Wild Dunes. Rooted in local culture and tied to the island’s natural setting, the Sweetgrass Inn binds the future and past, representing growth & beckoning connection with natural simplicity.

Nestled into the heart of Wild Dunes Resort, the Boardwalk Inn hotel is located steps from the beach and adjacent to the bustling Boardwalk. This charming hotel is celebrated by guests and critics alike, receiving the esteemed AAA Four Diamond award every year since it opened, and impressing guests with every stay.


The Residences at SweetgrassResidences at Sweetgrass is at the center of all resort activity and just a short walk from the pristine Isle of Palms beach. Guests can choose from one-, two-, and three-bedroom suites and penthouses, all of which are fully furnished and tastefully decorated in the casual elegance of the Lowcountry - and enjoy all the amenities of the hotel. In addition, The Shoppes at Sweetgrass also features the new Coastal Crust location, Hudson's Market, The Salon at Sweetgrass, and more.
