Wild Dunes Resort Is Seeing Stars As Mobil Travel Guide Announces The 2001 Mobil Award Winners

Wild Dunes Resort, located just minutes from historic Charleston, SC, and a member of the Destination Hotels & Resorts portfolio, has been named a Mobil Four-Star Award winner for 2001.
One of only four properties recognized in South Carolina with the Four-Star distinction, Wild Dunes Resort is the only oceanfront property in the Carolinas noted by Exxon Mobil Travel Publications.

For 2001, Mobil Travel Guide awarded only 237 Four-Star awards in North America. The Mobil Four Stars identify Wild Dunes as “outstanding - - worth a special trip.”

“Our Four-Star rating is highly notable and very well regarded,” said Kenneth P. Cohen, Vice President, Public Affairs, Exxon Mobil Corporation. “Such outstanding achievement in quality, elegance, and service is worthy of the admiration of even the most discerning travelers.”

Wild Dunes is a full-service resort on Isle of Palms, 20 minutes north of Charleston, SC. A wide range of accommodations is available including beach-side villas, exclusive homes, and the seaside Boardwalk Inn. In addition to 36-holes of Tom Fazio-designed golf, a top-10 tennis center, and nationally ranked kid’s and family recreation programs, the resort offers over 16,000 square feet of versatile meeting and exhibit space.

“It is truly an honor to be among such an extraordinary list of recipients for the Mobil Four-Star Award, said Richard Jones, General Manager of Wild Dunes. “Wild Dunes is a very special resort in an exceptional location; however, this recognition is a tribute to our service professionals and their commitment to providing individualized attention to each and every one of our guests.”
