© The Cloister at Sea Island
The Cloister is one of the two resorts on the privately owned Sea Island off the coast of Georgia. Designed in 1928 by renowned architect Addison Mizner, famous for designing Palm Beach, the Cloister has long been a favorite destination for the rich and famous who want privacy, seclusion, comfort, and easy-going Southern hospitality. A massive recent renovation brought the hotel to the 21st century with modern amenities, while preserving the elegant, ornate Spanish revival architecture. The Turkish rugs, wood-beam ceilings and many other classic details are still there. Rooms and suites are lavishly decorated and have soaking tubs, rainfall showerheads, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi, while all suites have balconies and living rooms. The resort has three championship golf courses, tennis courts, stables for horseback riding, tennis, a fitness center, an indoor pool and a spa as well as a range of gourmet restaurants.
