A Place To Rest, Relax and Renew

018

Anyone who follows my blog knows that I stayed at the King & Prince Resort last week as part of a group of “travel writers” who were selected to stay, share our talents, explore and reignite our creativity.  I’ve already shared the fact that the food was simply out of this world.  Each meal we were served was beautifully presented and tasted so delicious.

Let me first thank Leigh Cort, the fabulous publicist who put the whole event together, along with Bud St. Pierre who is head of sales and marketing at the K&P.  The time and effort they put into this experience for us all cannot be equaled.  Every detail, every minute…..everything about the event was carried out without a glitch or a flaw.

The King & Prince has existed on St. Simons Island since 1935.  You might find it interesting to know that the two gentlemen responsible for building the K&P were basically turned out by another club in the area for bad behavior.  They decided that since their company was not acceptable there they would form their own resort.  And they did. During World War II the resort was used as a Naval coast watching and training facility.  In 1947 it returned to an elegant resort that became one of America’s Prestigious Historic Hotels in 1996.   The resort will soon see its 80th year and I’m guessing the celebration of that is already being planned as I write this post.

Things are changing at the King & Prince.  A total renovation of the lobby area is set to begin next November and be finished by February of 2014.  The design, as it was described to us by Michael Johnson, VP of Resort Operations, is nothing short of perfect.  Those who loved the way the original bar was situated on the main floor will be pleased to know it is about to return there.  The indoor pool will no longer exist and the view as you enter the resort will expand for a better view of the beach.

I found my room to be comfortable, the view fantastic and service impeccable.

And then the stunning Delegal dining room with it historic stained glass windows.  What a place to enjoy an award winning Sunday Brunch!

Did I mention the spa?  And golf?  It’s all available here.  Stay tuned for future posts on this and more!

The flow of any hotel is important.  The way the historic section blends with the newer additions works beautifully.  Every detail of upgrading and freshening villas, cabanas and rooms is being seen too.

Remember, this is Saint Simons Island’s only beachfront resort.  Seeing to every detail in the way this staff does defines the high quality guests will be treated too when they visit.

There is so much to do and see here on St. Simons Island.   The rich history of our area, the people who live here and the beauty of the island is waiting for you to explore.  Make your reservations and look forward to a treat!  The King & Prince offers wonderful accommodations in a fabulous setting, what more could you want?
