Family Fun on your Georgia Beach Vacation

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

Jeff & Stephanie Sylva recently joined us on a press trip.  Their focus was on how families can enjoy a visit to the Golden Isles and The King and Prince.  Their article, Southern Charms at The King and Prince Golf Resort, tells us why our community is an excellent place to take the family for a beach vacation –  activities, dining and recreational pursuits abound.

During our four-day stay at The King and Prince we were treated like old friends by, not only the attentive resort staff, but by everyone we met throughout the island. We didn’t simply feel like tourists being welcomed for their business; but rather we felt welcomed as guests of the island community, invited to share in the tranquil beauty of this quaint island.

Tom Plant of WINEormous.com has written a series of blogs about his visit and the southern culinary traditions he enjoyed… and he can’t wait to come back!  Global Writes published his latest article about his unforgettable experience.

Mary Ann DeSantis finds “A Golden Treasure”

Wednesday, October 17th, 2012

Mary Ann DeSantis of “Writing with Style” visited The King and Prince over the summer with her husband Tony.  DeSoto Magazine/Exploring the South recently published Mary Ann’s interview with Gaines Sturdivant, President of MMI Hotel Group, which owns and manages The King and Prince.  Mr. Sturdivant’s father, Mike, helmed the company when they purchased The King and Prince in 1980:

“Dad was interested in finding a resort to add to his portfolio. He was familiar with Sea Island and when he saw The King and Prince, he felt it was exactly what he was looking for,” said Gaines Sturdivant about his father who passed away in May 2012. “It turned into far more than an investment for him and for our family. It is our flagship hotel and a cherished part of our company.”

Georgia On My Mind… Chic Savvy Travels

Monday, October 15th, 2012

Chantel Guertin visited The King and Prince recently, and posted about her experience on www.chicsavvytravels.com.  Visit her website at www.chantelguertin.com and follow her on Twitter @chantelguertin.

St. Simons Island blends the best of the Deep South with the East Coast. Halfway between Jacksonville, Florida and Savannah, Georgia, fly into either airport and make the hour drive to the island.

Where to stay
The King & Prince is the only waterfront resort on the island. Originally opened as a seaside dance club in 1935, it now offers oceanfront suites, beach villas or resort residences (ideal for larger families).

The King and Prince Shines in Southern Food Festivals

Thursday, October 11th, 2012

The King and Prince culinary staff has had a busy September!  The kitchen buzzed with activity through the constant flow of fall travelers, conventions, weddings and other gatherings.  In addition, they had the pleasure of participating in two local festivals – the Shrimp and Grits Festival and the inaugural St. Simons Food & Spirits Festival.

On the Friday night of the Shrimp & Grits festival, our staff worked tirelessly to prepare one of our signature dishes for the voting masses.  Their hard work paid off when we won the People’s Choice award for Best Vendor!

On the next weekend, Chef Jeff and his team showcased several delicious treats, including Cajun Wild Georgia Shrimp Skewers on Sweet Corn Salsa, for the St. Simons Food & Spirits Festival.

This Festival, whose proceeds went to benefit  Hospice of the Golden Isles, asked our own Food & Beverage Director Vinny D’Agostino to be their master mixologist.  With the help of our talented bartenders, Vinny introduced festival goers to our signature cocktails, featuring 13th Colony Southern Corn Whisky, among others.

We can hardly wait until next year!

Low Country Boil at The King and Prince

Tom Plant, of WINEormous.com has written a series of blogs about his spring visit to The King and Prince and St. Simons Island.  He fit quite a few adventures into a three-day trip!

My whirlwind three day visit to Saint Simons Island this past April was drawing to a close. Part of Georgia’s wilderness coast, it’s one of 15 beachfront islands along a 90 mile stretch. We began Wednesday morning with a visit to  a local favorite for lunch and dinner, Palmer’s Village Café. This charming spot is adorned with local art on every wall and the smells are heavenly.

Return of “Southern Culinary Traditions”

Thursday, September 6th, 2012

Sucheta Rawal, contributing blogger to Cuisine Noir, recently visited The King and Prince Resort and spoke with Chef Jeff Kaplan regarding our Southern Culinary Traditions.  Sucheta also enjoyed our Friday Night Seafood Buffet and Southern Charm Sunday Brunch.

(Chef Jeff) Kaplan believes in cooking with local ingredients and supporting local farmers and businesses. His initiative to bring fresh and seasonal ingredients to the island has completely transformed the menu at the resort. He personally visits the Saint Simons Island Farmer’s Market and picks up produce to cook with, then orchestrates them into a Southern culinary symphony. The dishes are enhanced by locally sourced honey from the Savannah Bee Company, peaches from Lane Southern Orchards, and wild Georgia shrimp from City Market Seafood.
