Our trip to Sea Island was something we had literally been looking forward to from the moment we made our reservations. The Sea Island Resort was built in 1928 and is located on one of Georgia’s smallest islands. Thanks to the beautiful architecture of all of the buildings on resorts grounds, you’ll feel more like you’re on the shores of the Mediterranean instead of the Atlantic (without the long plane ride.)
Before I share a bit more about room, there are a few things you need to consider if you’re planning a trip to Sea Island, Georgia. Do you want to stay in the main building (The Cloister), The Lodge (if you’re a golf lover) or do you want to stay at the Beach Club and be just a few minutes walk from the Atlantic Ocean?
Since our party was all adults we had all three options available, but we wanted to have a room with a kitchen, so we decided on a Beach Club room. If you have children in tow, you’ll have to go the same route as we did, as we didn’t see any families with children at the Cloister, while at the Beach Club all of the pool areas with one exception are kid friendly.
If you have more than two people in your party (my sister joined us for my mom’s pre-birthday celebration) we opted for a room that had two beds plus a sitting room. It’s always nice to get a sitting area when you possibly can, one because there’s usually always a pull out couch for an addition sleeping area, and having a dining table for when you dine in-room is always a good idea. Both of the rooms in our suite also had their own balcony, and while our view was just of the parking area below, it was nice to be able to step outside for a little fresh air in the early morning and evening.
The weather was a bit on the chilly side with the exception of our last day, which was both rainy and balmy, but we took the chance to head out and check out more of what the Beach Club had to offer after breakfast and before dinner in the evenings (including one rather chilly trip to one of the pools.)
All guests at the Beach Club also have access to the restaurants/shops at the Cloister, including the complimentary refreshments in both the morning/afternoon that your bellman will tell you about once you’ve gotten settled in your room.
With the kitchen option in our room, I loved that we were able to pop into one of the local grocery stores and pick up items for breakfasts for the length of our stay. There’s something about being able to keep up with your usual breakfast routine even while on vacation. (I’ve recently fallen in love with Silk’s Peach Mango Yogurt topped with a bit of granola.) Plus you get to enjoy your room so much more if you eat in at least one meal out of three.
No matter where you stay signing up for a treatment at the spa or indulging in a spa day in your room with products brought from home, should definitely be part of your agenda. I had brought a whole basket of new products that I’d been saving to try out with my mom and sister and it was so much fun sharing some of my favorite skincare routines with them.
