The Cloister at Sea Island


The luxury of the Cloister at Sea Island is legendary. Since the 1920s, this resort has been a favorite getaway for tycoons, world leaders, and celebrities. The original 1928 building was designed by famed Florida architect, Addison Mizner, in his typical grand Mediterranean style. Today, the original building has been replaced with a spectacular hotel in the same style designed by Peter Capone and erected in 2006. The lavish interiors by Pamela Hughes evoke the high-rolling days of America’s robber barons. 

The Cloister is the only resort in the world to receive Forbes’s Five-star award for six years in a row.  The lodging, lush landscaping, five miles of private beach, world-class golf and tennis programs, perhaps America’s most extravagant spa and fitness center, and Georgia’s only five-star restaurant combine to make the Cloister the ultimate luxury destination.  Luxury travelers will be happy to know that there are dress codes throughout the resort, keeping everyone looking their best.


Retreat into nature on Little St. Simons Island, one of Georgia’s beautiful and environmentally preserved barrier islands. With over 10,000 acres of Lowcountry maritime forest land, and 7 miles of pristine beaches, you’ll have the opportunity to get back in touch with Mother Nature, and learn a thing or two about her while you’re at it. The goal of The Lodge at Little St. Simons Island is to inform and educate guests about conservation ethics and awareness all while enjoying the beauty of the island.
