All Things Yellow, A Yellow Themed Wedding

Monday, March 14th, 2011

If you’ve got it, flaunt it!  We at the King and Prince might be just a bit partial to the color yellow since we do have a paint color named after us.  This bride and groom might have a few future weddings themed after theirs…

What a fun color scheme to use for your wedding this year!  It’s fresh and vibrant and will play well with the setting(s) available to you with a King and Prince Resort Wedding.

Remind Guests of Your Wedding at The King and Prince

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Having a destination wedding here on Saint Simons Island? Planning a Georgia Beach wedding? Surpise your guests with a unique wedding favor.  Here are six destination wedding favor ideas for your guests.

Destination Wedding Gift Ideas

(1) Leather Luggage Tags.  Remind guests of their trip to St. Simons Island every time they travel!

(2)  Local Delicacies.  Brewing a cup of St. Simons’ own Serenity House blends will remind them of your big day.

(3)  Local Postcards.  Bundle a stack of postcards with images of the island so guests can write home about how much fun they are having.

(4)  CD by a local musician.  Choose an iconic artist (Jimmy Buffett) or local cover band (Ziggy Mahoney).  Either will make remind your guests of the good times had on the dance floor.

(5)  Mini Photo Albums.  They will thank you later when they are filling their travel-friendly albums with photos from the trip.

(6) Personalized Canvas Totes.  Weddings can be stressful for your guests too.  The Royal Treatment Cottage at the King and Prince provides for personal items during massage treatments, but many guests choose they need to take one home as well.

King and Prince Golf Course Featured on Golf.com

Friday, March 11th, 2011

Below is a blog post from Golf.com recommending The King and Prince Golf Course as a must play golf course in the Golden Isles area.

Dear Joe,
My wife is traveling on business to the St. Simons/Jekyll Island region of Georgia in February. I’m planning on traveling along with her to enjoy some golf. Any suggestions on where to play?

Perhaps the best course in the St. Simons’ region, outside of the private tracks at Sea Island, is the King and Prince Beach Golf Resort ($79-$115; 912-634-0255, kingandprince.com). Formerly known as the Hampton Club, this sporty 6,462-yard, par-72 course was renovated by Billy Fuller in 2009 and features a handful of memorable holes, notably the 561-yard, par-5 3rd, which has marsh down the entire left side and a lake on the right side near the green and the 391-yard par-4 13th, which hopscotches the marsh via islands of turf.

Paradise Beach Bar & Grill Opens for the Season

Tuesday, March 8th, 2011

It is now March, which means Spring is here in the Golden Isles!  King and Prince Beach and Golf Resort reopened its poolside Paradise Beach Bar & Grill last weekend.  The seasonal bar and grill remains open through the summer and early fall and offers an ultra casual dining option that will enable you to set your body clock on island time.

Paradise opens daily at 11 AM.  It serves lunch items and many types of drinks and cocktails.  There is no better way to relax in the beautiful Georgia sun than laying by our pool and palm trees and sipping one of our delicious cocktails.  Definitely try our signature King and Prince Lifesaver.   It is delicious, especially paired with one of our burgers.  Come as you are, relax and enjoy!
