Wild Dunes Resort Announces Plans for New 153-Room Hotel to Open in Early 2021

New 153-Room Hotel Featuring 11,000 Square Feet of Meeting Space

CHARLESTON, S.C. (January 31, 2019) – Wild Dunes Resort, A Destination Hotel, is expanded its existing oceanfront meeting destination on the Isle of Palms, just 30 minutes outside of historic downtown Charleston. Opening in early 2021, the highly anticipated project will add a new 153-room hotel bringing the total to 400 guestrooms and suites, in addition to the existing 240 vacation rental homes and condos. The new, multi-faceted meeting and event space includes a grand ballroom with pre-function space and rooftop ballroom and event terrace with 270-degree panoramic ocean views, now allowing the resort to welcome groups of up to 650 attendees.

With the new event space doubling the Resort’s function space, the new Wild Dunes hotel will be a haven for meetings, groups and wedding parties to experience the ultimate Charleston retreat. Wild Dunes Resort’s expansion will also include a 14-treatment room destination spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and dedicated arrival experience and welcome center.

“The new hotel will further enhance Wild Dunes Resort’s reputation as Charleston’s beloved barrier island resort,” said Frank Fredericks, managing director at Wild Dunes Resort. “With more meeting space than other hotels and resorts in the Charleston area (more than any other?), we give large groups, meetings and wedding parties the chance to experience a Charleston getaway that simply wasn’t available before.”
