King And Prince Resort Rooms
I adore the rooms at the King and Prince, and with a choice of rooms, you're sure to find one that fits your family's needs, big or small.
The Beach Villas are an ideal choice for families, a girlfriend getaway, or a guys golf getaway. You can choose from a two or three-bedroom villa, a full-size kitchen, and a living room/dining room area. Each of the villas has a walk-out balcony or patio.
For an intimate and relaxing getaway for two, the King and Prince is a perfect choice. Choose an oceanfront Cabana room, with a sitting area and private patio overlooking the beach and walking path for the ultimate luxury romantic getaway.
I felt so decadent as we lay in bed, snuggled up, the curtains open, watching the sunrise as it peeked over the horizon. Coffee makers are a nice touch, allowing you to leisurely sip your morning caffeine.
I am always hard pressed to choose which of the accommodations at the King and Prince I love the most. The Oceanfront rooms run a close second to the Cabana rooms.
Decorated in calming coastal hues, these rooms have an immediate relaxing effect, and I love the balconies that overlook the pool and beach.
A winter escape to the King and Prince is just what the doctor ordered in terms of relaxation. After a restful night's sleep, wake up, stretch, and brew a cup of coffee, and sit outside on the balcony and watch the sunrise.
With a perfect view of the beach, you'll see seabirds swooping down along the beach in search of their morning sustenance. And that slight nip in the air wakes you up and prepares you for the day ahead.
Dining At The King and Prince
Paying homage to the island's role during World War II, ECHO makes the perfect destination for a romantic night out. With a table snuggled up to the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the beach you'll enjoy an intimate meal for two.
ECHO serves a selection of delicious entrees, from steak to seafood, with an emphasis on fresh, local fare. Dishes may change seasonally, based on local availability.
One thing you can always count on when dining at ECHO is a relaxed meal, that is tasty and well prepared, allowing you to linger and savor each bite.
ECHO serves Southern coastal cuisine, and is the islands only oceanfront restaurant.
Golf At The King And Prince Resort
For golf lovers, the King and Prince course does not disappoint. The course is very challenging, and visually stimulating.
Favorites On The King And Prince Course
Sea Island Golf Pro Patrick Richardson, in Coastal Illustrated's article, Fave 9 holes in the Golden Isles with PGA Sea Island Golf Club pro, Patrick Richardson says that Hole 12, a par 3, is most likely the shortest par 3 in the area. “I love this hole,” he said. “It has a lot of charm and can play tough if the wind is blowing from the north …” King and Prince's Sales Manager, Bud St. Pierre's favorite hole is #9. “It's a risk/reward hole” he states.
Golfers flock to play the courses on the Golden Isles, and the King and Prince course is a favorite. The course clocks over 25,000 rounds of golf on average each year.
Driving the cart paths is breathtaking. Jim is a golfer, and I am not; but I love to ride in the golf cart and take in the scenery.
The King and Prince course integrates seamlessly into the surrounding landscape of salty marshland and ponds that dot the course. It's these that make the course challenging.
As you play you are surrounded by natural unbridled beauty. We spotted a pair of bald eagles as we traversed the cart paths. As we watched, one of them stood on the edge of the nest, spread its wings and allowed the wind to take it up, and away it soared.
No matter what season you choose to visit the King and Prince on St. Simons Island, you can't go wrong! This grand Southern hotel has a pedigreed history, that is still unfolding.
