What can guests who stay at The King and Prince Resort on St. Simons Island expect? The perfect fusion of ocean front luxury, relaxation, hospitality, culinary excellence and historical integrity.
Luxury, Hospitality and Relaxation
The King and Prince Beach Resort is the only beachfront resort on St. Simons Island, so that alone makes it the perfect place to stay. But, when you combine all the comforts you can imagine with genuine southern hospitality, you’ll quickly see why this resort is so beloved and popular.
I’m a girl who loves luxurious properties, but only when they’re warm and friendly, and the King and Prince Resort most definitely was that. Every single staff member I encountered during my three day visit went out of their way to make me feel welcome. It’s easy to see why visitors continue to come back time and time again.
Plus, it’s beyond gorgeous there!
Just look at the room I stayed in…
Accommodations range from suites and standard guest rooms to villas and private residences. I had the pleasure of staying in the Oceanfront Building where rooms have private balconies or patios and floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the pools and the Atlantic Ocean.
And what a view I had from my room!
Of course, the amenities don’t hurt either.
There are five swimming pools on the property, including kiddie pools.
Georgia’s #1 Golf Course is at the King and Prince Resort!
Spa pampering awaits you at the Royal Treatment Cottage.
Two outdoor Har-Tru tennis courts are available, and a tennis pro is on staff for tips and/or lessons.
ECHO, St. Simons only oceanfront restaurant offers classic coastal cuisine and handcrafted cocktails under the skilled expertise of Executive Chef James Flack. Chef Flack’s menu emphasizes regionally sourced ingredients, and he steadfastly refuses to serve any line caught fish or inhumanely treated animals.
Over the course of my three day visit, I had the chance to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at ECHO, and the food was superb.
While you don’t have to know the history of The King and Prince Resort to appreciate a stay there, I think it’s a very special part of its character and charm. The resort was originally built as a private beachfront dance club in 1935. Can’t you picture all the swing dancing?
The hotel itself was opened in 1941, but when German U-boats were spotted off the Georgia coast during World War II, the hotel was closed to the public and used by the Navy as a radar station.
When it was finally reopened to the public in 1947, it quickly regained its reputation as a top notch resort property, a reputation which continues to this day. Through the years, a series of refurbishments and expansions have brought the resort to its current grandeur, with careful attention being paid to preserving its historical integrity. That integrity, authenticity and sense of place have earned The King & Prince the distinction of being one of the less than 300 hotels that are part of the Historic Hotels of America program.
I really can’t say enough about my overall King and Prince Beach Resort experience. I was a guest of the resort for my visit, but I’m already planning a return visit with my boyfriend. Whether you’re taking a family vacation, a girlfriend getaway, a golf trip or a romantic escape, The King and Prince Beach Resort is the ideal place to stay on St Simons Island.

Beautiful pictures of a gorgeous resort! We’re in the throws of a Nor’Easter and I’d love to be on a tropical island relaxing on the beach right now instead of shoveling snow 🙂 Sharing the pictures with the hubs, to start planting seeds that we need to GO 🙂

WOW! You guys found the perfect spot. I grew up in Georgia but I don’t think we ever made it to St. Simons island. If we ever make it back that way I know where we’ll be staying now. That resort looks fabulous!

Sally Hardman says
I’m lucky enough to live on St. Simons Island. Not only is the King and Prince a top of the line vacation spot, but there are a lot of things to explore on the island, including (but not limited to) Fort Frederica (a National Park), Christ Church (where John Wesley preached under the oaks), other great restaurants in addition to Echo (which is the only restaurant on the island where you can sit on the lawn and watch the boats on the ocean during happy hour), and the historic pier/Village area. Plan an extended vacation – you will love it!
Cassie Tucker says
St. Simons Island is such a wonderful place to spend a vacation. I hope my husband have a chance to go back. Maybe we will stay in this resort!
Reesa Lewandowski says
About 20 years ago on our way to Fl, we stopped in St Simons Island and I have spent all of this time wanting to go back! Thank you for the beautiful resort idea!
Laura Hall says
The King & Prince is quite a place! It is beautiful inside and the grounds are magnificent. St Simons is one of my favorite vacation spots. Great restaurants, quaint shops, lots of history on the island (the trolley tour is a great way to hear about the history), plus only about an hour drive to Savannah for a fun day trip. I highly recommend it!!
@ Hip Mama’s Place says
I cannot believe how many hidden gems there are in GA! This place looks amazing and just the vacation that i need. It’s not that far from me, i need to get over there.
Lois Christensen says
Yes! When my husband was stationed in Atlanta we took the kids for a vacation and stayed in this beautiful hotel. Our kids were young and they just loved it as much as we did. The best part is when the tide comes in and the sand beach disappears but the waves are great. Our kids loved using their boogy boards during this time. We always talk of going back and maybe one day we will! Thanks for the memories today!
I’m planning to visit there especially to play a round of golf. I’ve heard so many great things about the King and Prince, I just haven’t made it out there yet. Thanks for the inspiration.
