Lowe, the developer behind Isle of Palms’ Wild Dunes Resort (right) and The Cooper in downtown Charleston, announced the name and details of the newest hotel currently under construction at Wild Dunes Resort. The property is set to open in spring 2021.
“Lowe is excited to add another asset to this beloved resort community that we have owned and managed for 30 years,” Dan Battista, Senior Vice President and Southeast Regional Leader at Lowe, said. “We are honored to continue our longstanding commitment to excellence and the tradition of delivering world-class properties to the Charleston region.”
In addition to Sweetgrass Inn’s name, the developer says the hotel’s event spaces and dining options are also inspired by Lowcountry fauna and history. The lobby bar, Oystercatcher, is named for the native bird found across the sea islands, while the 8,000-square-foot grand ballroom and terrace space, Osprey Ballroom & Terrace, is named for one of the Lowcountry’s most recognizable birds. The Avocet Boardroom is named for the birds that form habitats in the Lowcountry’s shallow wetlands. The 6,000-square-foot Indigo Room & Rooftop, which offers ocean views, is inspired by the crop grown in early South Carolina to produce blue dye for use in the textile industry.
With 153 guestrooms, Sweetgrass Inn will feature amenities including an expanded outdoor pool deck with a freestanding bar and restaurant, The Jetty, as well as Sweetgrass Spa & Wellness, a 10,000-square-foot spa with 14 treatment rooms and lounge space. The resort’s current fitness center in the Village will also be replaced with a new 2,750-square-foot, state-of-the art fitness center.
Sweetgrass Inn will also include a new, designated resort entrance and welcome center. Currently, the entire Wild Dunes Resort community shares one arrival entrance and gate.
