The Village at Wild Dunes® Receives Coveted AAA Four-Diamond Rating

Charleston’s Island Resort Continues to Earn Recognition for its Top Hospitality Offerings & Service

Isle of Palms, S.C. – Wild Dunes® Resort – owned and operated by Destination Hotels & Resorts – has been awarded the highly coveted AAA Four-Diamond rating for its newest accommodation, The Village at Wild Dunes, 125 guest rooms and suites located in the heart of the oceanfront Resort just minutes from downtown Charleston.  In addition to the newly received award, Wild Dunes also has received the AAA Four-Diamond rating consecutively for its Boardwalk Inn since its opening in 1998.

Nationally recognized as one of the most esteemed symbols of excellence in the hospitality industry, The AAA Four-Diamond Rating is assigned to lodgings that feature an extensive array of amenities combined with a high degree of hospitality, service, and attention to detail. The Village at Wild Dunes is a part of a select group of AAA Four-Diamond Award winners. Just four percent of the more than 31,000 AAA-Rated lodgings were awarded the prestigious AAA Four-Diamond designation for 2010.

 "We are all proud and excited to have achieved this award through the dedication and hard work of our staff at Wild Dunes," said Wild Dunes Resort Managing Director Frank Fredericks.  "We are honored to add The Village to the Resort’s list of award-winning accommodations.” 

 As the center of the Resort’s activity, the three-building Village evokes thoughts of Rainbow Row in neighboring downtown Charleston, S.C. The Village sits adjacent to the AAA Four-Diamond Boardwalk Inn and across the street from The Sweetgrass Pavilion ®, the Resort’s dedicated 10,000 square foot meeting facility, its Tennis Center and Harbor Golf Course.

At The Village, guests can choose from guest rooms, studios, and one-, two- and three-bedroom suites, as well as lavish penthouses - fully furnished and tastefully decorated in the casual elegance of the Lowcountry - and enjoy all the amenities of a luxury hotel and more, including complimentary concierge, valet services, fully-equipped kitchens, flat screen televisions and high-speed wireless Internet access. In addition to accommodations, The Village Plaza also features the family-friendly Lettered Olive Restaurant and Lounge, featuring comfort food that is fresh, familiar and locally-inspired, a market, fitness center and Sand and Sea Salon & Spa.
