On beautiful and charming St. Simons Island, Georgia, there is only one luxury resort. The King and Prince Hotel, located directly on the beach at 201 Arnold Road, has been in operation since 1935.

History of the King and Prince Hotel on St. Simon’s Island, Georgia

The King and Prince Hotel began as a seaside dinner club in 1935. With six years, the place and its location on the pristine beach of St. Simon’s warranted a hotel on the premises, and in 1941, the main historical hotel building was opened.

During World War II, the hotel served as a naval coast watching and training facility for the United States Military. Following the end of the war, it re-opened as a resort again in 1947. In 1972, there was an extensive renovation. In 1996, the hotel was placed on the Historic Hotels of America list.

Then, in 2003, the main historic building — the nucleus of the King and Prince — went through an extensive restoration. This added 57 new guest rooms. For over 75 years, the King and Prince have offered superior service on a beautiful landscape and has also offered up unrivaled Southern hospitality.
