The new facility is expected to open in 2021 and will bring the total of available guest rooms and suites at the Isle of Palms, S.C. resort to 400. New event space will also be part of the project, to create a grand ballroom with pre-function space and a rooftop ballroom and event terrace with 270-degree ocean views. Once completed, the resort will be able to host groups with up to 650 attendees.
The Wild Dunes Resort on the Isle of Palms, S.C. outside of Charleston has announced plans for a new 153-room hotel that will expand the amount of meeting space available at the property within two years, Live 5 WCSC of Charleston reported.
The new hotel will bring the total of available guest rooms and suites available to 400, WCSC reported, in addition to 240 existing vacation rental homes and condos, according to Lou Hammond Group spokesperson Gina Stouffer.
The new event space will also include a grand ballroom with pre-function space and a rooftop ballroom and event terrace with 270-degree panoramic ocean views. Once complete, the resort will be able to welcome groups of up to 650 attendees, Stouffer told WCSC.
“The new hotel will further enhance Wild Dunes Resort’s reputation as Charleston’s beloved barrier island resort,” said Frank Fredericks, the resort’s Managing Director. “With more meeting space than other hotels and resorts in the Charleston area, we will give large groups, meetings and wedding parties the chance to experience a Charleston getaway that simply wasn’t available before.”
The expansion will also include a 14-treatment room destination spa, a state-of-the-art fitness center and a welcome center, WCSC reported, which resort officials hope will also establish the property as a haven for meetings, groups and wedding parties, along with the new hotel.
