The Sanctuary, a new ultra-luxurious hotel and spa, serenely captures the Island’s natural beauty. Named “Best New Resort Hotel” by Harper’s Hideaway Report, the Sanctuary features 255 gracious guestrooms and suites, two elegant restaurants, both with ocean views, a grand lobby bar, a cozy martini bar, an oceanfront poolside grill, a unique nature-based spa with 12 treatment rooms, fitness room, indoor pool and jacuzzi. Kiawah Island Golf Resort is the only resort in the country that has three courses ranked on Golf Digest’s list of “America’s Top 75 Resort Courses,” and Conde Nast Traveler recently listed the resort among the top “50 Golf Resorts Worldwide.”

ABI has arranged for special conference rates of $235 for either a Luxurious Sanctuary Room or One Bedroom Scenic View Villa. To secure the special rate, reservations must be made by July 5, 2005.

*ABI acknowledges that in some instances there will be persons who need to attend an educational seminar for CLE credit who are not able to pay full registration fees. ABI will handle such instances on a case-by-case basis and will work with the attorney on alternative solutions. For persons who cannot meet the full registration rate, ABI will offer a reduced rate based on what the attorney can reasonably afford to cover of the cost of meals and materials. For persons unable to pay a reduced rate, we may allow the attorney to work at our registration area for a few hours during attendee check-in, or assist in conference set-up. ABI also has reduced rates for government employees, professors, law clerks and students. For information on tuition assistance, send an e-mail to
