The elegance of a historic time is recaptured in this exquisite resort.
The Cloister is part of the refined Sea Island resort complex. In 2006, the property completed a three-year overhaul that culminated with the demolition of the original Addison Mizner-designed building and the construction of a main building that features many refurbished elements from the original.
Entirely reproduced was the original Spanish Lounge with fully restored stained glass windows, antique cypress beams and marble mantle. The design also captures the Mediterranean style of the old property, with stucco arches and courtyards. Resort hallmarks include consistently good service and beautiful seaside surroundings that range from rolling ocean waves to oaks, flora and fauna.
Thirty suites reside in the anchor building, while two wings house 35 bedrooms each. The property is popular for weddings and an impressive 40,000 couples have honeymooned here over the years.
Dining options include the elegant Georgian Room, Oak Room and the Davis Love Grill, to name just a few.
A focus on family makes sure that parents and their kids feel right at home, with activities to keep children busy while mom and dad enjoy their stay. Choose from horseback riding, tennis, fishing trips, an eco-tour and more. Themed hotel packages are also offered focusing on tennis, golf and romance.
