One of the most beautiful and grand hotels that I've ever visited. The area is very beautiful and the grounds and structures are first class. The resort was originally designed by Addison Mizner who is one of South Florida's most important and imitated architects. He's famous for the Boca Raton Resort and many oceanfront homes from Palm Beach to Boca...

This is most definitely the most luxurious resort of the South. My husband had a business conference here. It is truly a gem. The rooms are very large and have great balconies to relax on. We stayed on the older side - rooms very traditional and antique feel. We were there right after Hurricane Matthew, so the food options were...

We have stayed here 3 times. Honeymoon and anniversary trips. We stayed in the oceanfront rooms, and the main building. We've never stayed at the Lodge, and I cannot comment on that. All 3 stays were exceptional. Expensive, but fabulous.

This is my third trip to Sea Island, and it keeps getting better. We stayed in the new Garden Wing and it was great with a modern fresh blue and white color scheme. The Beach Club and Spa are gorgeous. We had a lot of fun doing the kayak trip, yoga, and spa, and renting bikes to drive around the...

I was blown away with the elegant and low key Cloister. To say it was lovely is an understatement. Check-in stacked up but the concierge Grace stepped in to get things moving. The room in the garden wing was outstanding. Our bell staff person was well versed in explaining all things we may need. My husband liked the text a...

This was our first trip to Sea Island and we will def be back! Rented bikes and stayed in one of the cloister cottages. Everything is beautiful, immaculate and very well done. The beach and pool were very nice and all staff was very accommodating.

We were there for a conference but we were able to enjoy some of the activities. I went fishing and it was a great experience. The boat ride to the ocean is beautiful and the scenes are incredible. The service at the hotel is comparable to the best hotels worldwide. The staff is friendly and the rooms are the best.
