Easter at Sea Island, and its Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotels The Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club and The Cloister, is a grand affair with events covering almost every hour of the holiday weekend.
In 2013, the 7 a.m. Easter Sunday sunrise service at the Beach Club was one to remember; as the sun came up, the ocean waves provided the soundtrack to the all-inclusive Christian service. A morning service was also held in The Cloister Chapel at 9 a.m.
Come afternoon on Easter Sunday, expect Sea Island to go all out for their egg hunt. The precursor is an interactive Easter Egg-Stravaganza featuring bunnies, eggs and, of course, golf balls. And the egg hunt itself? There are more than 10,000 eggs in five different areas, separated by age groups. Kids who find the golden golf ball on each field will receive a prize. Reservations are required for both the Egg-Stravaganza and Easter egg hunt.
There are always plenty of Easter lunch and brunch options, including a brunch buffet in the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Georgian Room restaurant and an Italian à la carte brunch menu at Tavola. And there are plenty more events throughout Easter weekend, ranging from a sand bunny building contest and breakfast with the Easter Bunny to a tennis exhibition match. The full list of events can be found on Sea Island’s website.
Easter celebrations begin mid-week with holiday receptions, Easter Bunny-inspired breakfasts, sandcastle building contests, parties, and plenty of jelly beans and Easter treats for all! The most treasured Easter activity takes place on Sunday afternoon at the Egg-Stravaganza, as kids of all ages join the Easter bunny for photos, and participate in one of the largest egg hunts around. Over 10,000 eggs are scattered in sections that correspond to different age groups. After a dramatic countdown, roughly 1000 kids and adults storm the fields in their Sunday best. Easter at Sea Island is a time for family, fun, and memories that will last a lifetime.
