We came to The Lodge for a few nights in April. While our room the first night was very nice, it faced the front entry of the hotel and was very noisy. We switched to another room the next day, which had a very private balcony overlooking the golf course and the ocean. While staying here we walked to a... More

A friend and I ate a lovely dinner at the Oak Room, one of two fine restaurants at The Lodge. Before our meal, we enjoyed the sight of the water from the terrace with the sound of a bagpiper drifting across the extensive lawns. He played for an hour, a variety of melodies, well-performed and perfectly suited to the overall... More

We have just returned from another stay at The Lodge at Sea Island. I can't say enough wonderful things about The Lodge - service is incredible (understated but individualized); the golf courses are in great shape; the food is great and the Spa is gorgeous. I must recommend Tavola, the Italian restaurant, a short shuttle ride way at The Cloisters.... More

The perfect service began the moment we pulled up in front of the Lodge. We were met and greeted by name even before we entered the hotel. Our room was ready and the concierge showed us directly to our room. He introduced us to our butler and maid for our room and then explained how everything worked in the room... More
