The Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club

The ultimate golf lover's getaway
Generations of privileged travelers have made Sea Island their top vacation destination. Created in the spirit of European sporting estates, The Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club features first-rate tennis and equestrian facilities, three championship golf courses and tastefully decorated accommodations with private balconies.

Guestrooms are styled with hardwood floors, exposed beam ceilings and private balconies overlooking the rolling fairways of the Plantation Golf Course, St. Simons Sound or the Atlantic Ocean.

The hotel's sister property, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Cloister, is nearby and provides additional dining choices, the Five-Star Cloister Spa and access to the superb Cloister Beach Club.
Our Inspector's Highlights
• Each room at the luxury hotel comes with a butler who is available around the clock. Ask him to do everything for you (within reason) from pressing your shirts and shining your shoes to making you a midnight snack.

• Perched right on the Atlantic Ocean, the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel offers picturesque views from its rooms, vast outdoor patio and plush lawn.

• With its proximity to the impeccably manicured courses at the Golf Club at Sea Island, you’ll enjoy world-class play in an unmatched, oceanside setting.

• The style of the hotel reminds us of an old-school country club. The building itself exudes a grand and historic feel, and once inside, you’ll be treated to elegant touches such as hardwood floors, dark wood trim, antiques, oriental rugs and overstuffed chairs.

• The Lodge at Sea Island oozes romance with plenty of snuggle-worthy spots, including the wood-burning fireplaces, elegant terraces and plush back lawn complete with lounge chairs overlooking the fairway and the ocean beyond.
Things to Know
• Each evening here, a bagpipe player strolls down to the shoreline just before sunset to serenade guests with some traditional tunes.

• Southern retreat knows how to do golf and romance, but it doesn’t offer much in the way of family fun. Children are welcome here, but they’ll have to be on their best behavior, and that includes wearing a jacket to dinner.

• The guests here dress the part of country club chic. Everywhere you look, you’ll spot guests dressed in their best, so you’ll want to follow suit.
The Rooms
• The accommodations at the St. Simon’s resort are incredible spacious. Regular rooms offer up 700 square feet of space, while the suites let you spread out in 1,000 square feet.

• No matter which one you stay in, you’ll be treated to classic décor made up of hardwood floors, oriental rugs, exposed wood ceilings and marble countertops in the bathrooms.

• Inside your room, you’ll find beds with traditional bedding and a fabric-covered headboard. Settees in floral upholstery rest at the end of the beds, and there’s also an overstuffed loveseat and sofa in opposite corners of the room.

• The bathrooms feature heated towel racks, marble baths with deep-soaking tubs and rain head showers, as well as a spacious double vanity.
The Restaurants
• The Oak Room is the more causal of the resort’s two restaurants (however denim is not allowed after 6 p.m.), with the look and feel of a high-class pub complete with leather ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace.

• Chow down on dishes such as the Blue Crab jalapeño hushpuppies or the award-winning shrimp and grits and then complement your meal with one of the Oak Room's many beers on tap, a single-malt scotch or even a cigar from its temperature-controlled humidor.

• The elegant Colt & Alison features high-back leather chairs, cozy banquettes and a wood-burning fireplace, as well as panoramic views of the 18th hole of the golf course that's just outside.

• Enjoy tableside specialties at Cold & Alison such as filet mignon au poivre or bananas foster, as well as seafood dishes like the Maine lobster or seared Atlantic salmon.
