It Is Time To Visit The Georgia Coast
Nestled on the Georgia coast, midway between Savannah, GA, and Jacksonville, FL, lie beautiful barrier islands—St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Jekyll Island — and the mainland city of Brunswick. Pristine stretches of marshland, punctuated by small islands known as hammocks, define the breathtaking landscape and create the appearance of a continuous stretch of land reaching out to the barrier islands.
Where To Stay On St. Simons Island
King and Prince Resort
The King and Prince is a 3-star resort. Located about a mile from the St. Simons Lighthouse, it was built and opened in 1941. There is an on-site restaurant and bar that sits feet from the sandy beach.
The Ocean Lodge has only 15 rooms. It is an intimate hotel with a rooftop restaurant. This is not your best family option, but if you’re looking for a couple’s getaway this might be a good option.
Village Inn And Pub
Built in the 1930’s, the Village Inn has less than 30 rooms. Not right on the beach, but quaint and lovely with a sense you have stepped back in time. Be sure to enjoy the pub during your stay.
Where To Stay On Sea Island
Sea Island Resort
Since 1928, Sea Island has been known as an exceptional destination. Five-Star hotel and experiences for families, outdoor enthusiasts, and those simply wanting to refresh. The resort is really the umbrella control of all the properties on the island.
The Cloister at Sea Island
The Cloister at Sea Island is part of Sea Island Resort and also a 5-star hotel. Really a one of a kind hotel. When staying on Sea Island, this is where you want to stay and eat and play.
The Inn at Sea Island
Also controlled by Sea Island Resort, the Inn is set back from the water’s edge and what we would call more of a hotel for the golfer in you. A much more casual atmosphere, a 3-star hotel, a wonderful stay still close to everything.
Where To Stay On Jekyll Island
Jekyll Island Club Resort
The Jekyll Island Club Resort and the Island Cottages should be a bucket list item. No matter where you stay, you’ll find an island’s worth of beach and natural beauty and a resort’s worth of dining, amenities, and activities. The club has about 40 suites which will make you feel pampered.
The Ocean Club
The ocean club is part of the Jekyll Resort complex but on the ocean side. The Ocean Club is very contemporary and very geared toward the beach. Close enough to the conference center to walk. Really a top notch hotel.
Westin @ Jekyll Island
The Westin is a 4-star hotel with about 190 rooms. There are several dining opportunities including inside and outside plus a steakhouse. There is a wonderful pool right on the beach and still other restaurants just steps from the property.
