I am a little disappointed this is only a 5 star resort. It sure seemed like a 10 star resort! The folks at Sea Island pay attention to every little detail. At first glance the prices seem high, but the reality is the hotel and staff go out of their way to accommodate all aspects of the trip. While I... More

My husband and I visited The Cloister at Sea Island to rest after a recent family wedding. It was wonderful. He played both the Seaside and the Plantation courses and loved both of them. The food was excellent; our favorite restaurant was Colt & Allison at The Lodge. I spent a day at the Spa, which was one of the... More

I am at least a 6th or 7th generation Georgian, and I spent my honeymoon here before the renovations of the 2000's, so I admit to some bias, but The Cloister is simply the best. I have had the pleasure of experiencing many luxury resorts in th Western Hemisphere and many Ritz Carlton and JW Marriott properties and can still... More

I just returned from a 2 night stay at The Cloister with my husband. Words cannot describe how perfectly wonderful our stay was at this property that "took our breath away". The rooms were stunning with great views and ambience. The staff was friendly and helpful. You must visit The Georgian Room for a dining experience you will not forget.... More

Living in Atlanta I had heard about The Cloister for years...I'm just sorry it took me so long to finally visit. The entire resort is gorgeous. Everywhere you look are beautiful views, both in and outside of the hotel. My suite was enormous and very well appointed, especially the bathroom. The food at the various restaurants was most impressive. From... More

had the opportunity to spend three glorious nights in October at this resort. Attention to detail, cleanliness and friendly efficient staff all made for a perfect stay. Beautiful grounds for strolling. Complimentary afternoon tea in the bird room. Stroll around and visit the on property chapel.

My husband and I spent a long weekend here and stayed in a suite at the Ocean Villas. Wow - the suite was beautifully decorated with a full kitchen (Bosch all around), lovely furniture, two full bathrooms and ocean views from both porches. We played tennis (Har-Tru courts) and enjoyed the pool at the Beach Club. Especially recommend the Flounder... More

As calm and peaceful as a medieval cloister with fantastic staff. The draft Sweetwater beer from Atlanta was brilliant. The food is rather bland. The gardens are exceptional. The only downside is a feeling of being controlled. Loved the complimentary strawberry margarita at 5pm.

This entire island and resort is first class and one of the best resorts in the country - if not the world. Gorgeous, historic property on the Atlantic Ocean with great rooms, even better suites, and unmatched service. Old photos in the common areas show visits by past U.S. presidents, famous foreign dignitaries, and other noteworthy people from the past... More

Came here to celebrate our anniversary and to attend my husband's high school reunion and we loved it! The staff was extremely attentive. In fact, after we left The Cloister, I realized I did not get a photo of the wait staff and Chef at the Georgian Room. I sent an email requesting a photo and received one back the... More
