SEA ISLAND GEORGIA, USA

Located coastally midway between Savannah and Jacksonville airports.

Amazing beach, golf, spa, shooting sports, tennis and fitness! My wife and I did not want to leave. In fact, we extended our stay because there were so many wonderful things to do. The food is amazing too! This is the first twenty Star resort I have been to. Spectacular!

About the Resort

Since 1928 (90 years), Sea Island has been known as an exceptional destination appealing to those who appreciate gracious service and heartfelt hospitality.  With four Forbes Five-Star experiences — The Cloister at Sea Island, The Lodge at Sea Island, The Spa at Sea Island, and the Georgian Room restaurant – Sea Island entices families, outdoor enthusiasts, and those simply wanting to refresh. It is the only resort in the world to have received four Forbes Five-Star awards for ten consecutive years.  As the only U.S. resort to host a G-8 Summit of world leaders, Sea Island provides exceptional settings and service for conferences and executive retreats.

Located on the southeastern coast of Georgia, Sea Island features five miles of private beach, a Beach Club, tennis center, Yacht Club, Shooting School, and children’s programs, as well as three championship golf courses, including Seaside and Plantation, home of the PGA Tour’s RSM Classic.  Located on St. Simons Island, The Inn at Sea Island offers casual accommodations with access to many Sea Island amenities. Broadfield, a Sea Island Sporting Club and Lodge, offers seasonal hunting and fishing opportunities.

Enhancements now underway at The Lodge include six new cottages with 14 sleeping rooms, an oceanfront pool, and pool house, opening in November 2018, and a recently opened 18-hole putting course.  Early 2019 brings an all-new, 17,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art Golf Performance Center.
