The Cloister At Sea Island is a private five mile

long coastal vacation spot in Georgia. Sea Island

is well known for its championship golf course,

which after recent improvements, is now better than

ever before.

There are a total of 54 holes, which include the

18 hole Plantation Course which opened in 1998, and

was designed by Rees Jones. The 18 hole Seaside

Course was renovated by Tom Fazio and re-opened

again in 1999. You can learn to play golf at this

course, or just play and polish your game.

The Sea Island resort also offers a spa with several

fitness facilities. You can participate in special

classes as well as personalized fitness and wellness

programs. Other activities around the resort include

tennis, horseback riding, sunset cruises, boating,

fishing, shooting school, kayaking, swimming, and

even diving lessons.

Sea Island also offers a family destination where

kids can choose from several different vacation

activities. Children can play afternoon tennis free

of charge and even participate in complimentary

golf and tennis clinics. During the summer, spring

break and even holidays, the resort is happy to

provide a program for kids ages 3 – 11.

Resort rooms and food

The Cloister at Sea Island offers you well over 250

guest rooms and suites that are situated in various

houses on Sea Island. The Retreat House, Hamilton

House, and Harrington House are all located on the

beach, while the newer guest houses and Terrace

tennis center.

Guests that visit Sea Island can also stay at the

Lodge at Sea Island Golf Club, which opened in

March of 2001. The Lodge offers guests 40 luxurious

The main dining room at the Cloister offers live

music and dancing during warmer months. The Terrace

dining room, located at the Lodge at Sea Island

Southern twist.

Late spring, summer, and early fall are by far

the best times to check out the Cloister at Sea

Island. Sea Island is an hour drive by car from

Savannah Georgia and one hour away from Jacksonville

Florida. Private aircraft can also land at the
