The Cloister Story
Sea Island is part of the Golden Isles of Georgia, along with Jekyll Island, St. Simons Island, and Little St. Simons Island. The seacoast paradise was called “Millionaire’s Island” and brought the wealthiest families for vacation retreats at the beginning of the 20th century.
The Cloister opened in 1928 as a “Little Friendly Hotel” on the southern coast of Georgia. In 1929 the seaside golf course opened. The Mediterranean-style hotel featured architectural elements such as terra cotta roofs, sunlit garden patios, and old-world ambiance.
In 2003 the grandson of the original owner began his plan to replace the original building by rebuilding a modern-day luxury resort that replicated many for the original architectural feature. The revitalized resort emerged in 2007. Today there are 175 guest rooms and suites that overlook the Black Banks River, the Atlantic Ocean or the lush coastal environment.
The Cloister Amenities
The Georgian Room is one of seven restaurants available at Sea Islands Resorts. 100 Hudson, overlooking the Black Banks River, offers a daily breakfast buffet with Southern influence.
Wine lovers may enjoy The Cloister Wine Cellar, with its old-world character with brick-lined arches, antique oak ceilings, and wrought iron chandeliers. The wine cellar offers over 10,000 bottles of wins and 1,200 vintages.
Sea Island Resorts offers outdoor activities year-round on the seaside property. Guests can relax along a five-mile stretch of private beach on the Atlantic coast. Activities include golf, swimming pool, horseback riding, shooting school, boating, fishing, and tennis and nature activities.
Cloister Spa is the only Mobil Five Star spa in the state of Georgia.
