Kingston Resorts are proud to be part of the “Green” hotel properties that have instituted programs to save energy and water and reduce solid waste. These earth-friendly initiatives are part of our commitment to reuse, reduce and recycle whenever possible. Kingston Plantation and Kingston Shores are the first hotels in Myrtle Beach to be Green Certified by the Green Hospitality Alliance.

Our management team has established innovative and cost-saving measures that protect our environment and continually motivate our employees to go one step beyond — whether that means catering to guests or walking 10 miles for a charity. We believe this attitude and commitment make a difference every day of the year.
