Lying halfway between Savannah, Georgia and Jacksonville, Florida, Sea Island is simply sublime. This private, coastal resort island offers a Mediterranean-style oasis of comfort, a country manor, championship golf, sumptuous dining, luxurious spa facilities, and old-world elegance.

The Cloister at Sea Island features 175 elegant rooms and suites overlooking the Black Banks River, Atlantic Ocean, and lush Georgian environment. With luxurious and comfortable public spaces including the Solarium, Library, Colonial Lounge, and the Spanish Lounge, and modern amenities like the Mobil Five-Star Cloister Spa, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, the Beach Club, the Equestrian Center and the Tennis Club, you may find yourself spending very little time in your room.

The AAA Five-Diamond and Mobil Five-Star Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club is a 40-room intimate hotel and golf club that conjures up images of an English country manor and features three championship golf courses.

Dining has a long history at Sea Island and the offerings today celebrate that experience. From the Mobil Five-Star Georgian Room, with it’s breathtaking elegance and sophisticated Southern cuisine, to the casual gathering spot at River Bar to Big George’s, where seafood and the view reign supreme, to the ultimate steakhouse experience at The Lodge’s Colt & Alison, dining is taken very seriously at Sea Island. And with six dining venues, there is something for everyone.

For excursions from the luxury and pace of Sea Island, the town of St. Simons Island is just across the bridge and offers typical beach attractions including The Lighthouse Museum, Fort Federica, shopping in The Village, and dining options from casual to elegant.
