Not only are these dresses gorgeous and flattering for many different body types, they are also the perfect dresses for a beach wedding!

“Perfection.” I am so happy we chose the King & Price, our wedding coordinator Scarlett was phenomenal, the place was beyond amazing and the cost was fair. Great value and perfect place. -Franny

“Wedding of my dreams!” The King and Prince Beach Resort is the perfect location for a fairytale wedding! The staff is amazing and will make your wildest dreams come true! I am from Portland, OR, so obviously, this was a destination wedding. The staff made it so simple to plan, and set up tastings and tours the one weekend I had available without any hesitation. The wedding weekend was perfect! I came in on a Thursday and only had to have one small 15 minute meeting to square away the final details! I am so blessed to have had the perfect wedding! If you want the perfect beach wedding, I fully recommend The King and Prince Beach Resort!  -Janell G

Pre-Order Your Copy of “The Princess and the Crab” Today!

May 16th, 2015

Princess and the crab

 

Commissioned by the Resort’s owners for their children, “The Princess and the Crab” is a wonderful memento for your family and friends.

A delightfully inspired re-imagining of the beloved princess-and-the-frog fable (with a lovable, wise crab as the co-star), the book is wonderful, whimsical and wise. While the tale is fun, author Grace Gore Sturdivant’s use of historical island sites in the unfolding story brings learning to the book’s magic and meaning. Adding to the appeal are its delightful illustrations by ED Hose of St. Simons Island.

This children’s book includes 48 pages of delight, weaving The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort, our coast, and St. Simons Island’s history into the narrative.

Place your order today and you will receive an email upon the books arrival at the resort and prior to shipping to you. The book is $20 per copy and can be purchased by visiting the resort’s online gift shop.

This year, low cut backs are making a comeback on wedding dresses. While this trend may not be for the faint of heart, we know that those who do wear one of these dresses will be absolutely stunning on their wedding day.

This swan inspired body by designer Galia Lahav has a dramatic silhouette with layers of tulle. On the back, French lace dotted with pearls completes the delicate and gorgeous look.

Explore St. Simons Island During Your Next Meeting or Retreat

April 30th, 2015

Beach on St. Simons Island

When meeting planners are looking for a location for their next event, they are looking for several things. Some of those are price, amenities and of course, location. Our resort is conveniently located just minutes off of I-95 and just steps from the ocean’s edge! Because of our proximity to the ocean, and the abundance of activities and sight-seeing on the island, it makes our resort the perfect meeting destination. Here are some places worth seeing while you are attending your next meeting.

Shrimping aboard The Lady Jane: This is a one of a kind tour that you will not experience anywhere else! The two hour tour takes you through St. Simons Sound where they drag the nets and show you what is living in our waters. What will you see besides lots of shrimp? Jellyfish, baby sharks, puffer fish, blue crab, horseshoe crabs and maybe even a sea turtle! Individual tickets can be purchased or you can ask them about a private tour for your whole group.

St. Simons Lighthouse Museum: Visit one of only three working lighthouses in the state of Georgia. The lighthouse and museum is located in the pier village area which is one mile from our resort. Take a tour and learn about the rich maritime history of the island. Don’t forget to climb the 129 steps to the top of the lighthouse for a breathtaking view.

Sailboat Rentals: Take advantage of our location by renting a sailboat or taking sailing lessons from a pro! Barry’s Beach Service offers sailboat rentals as well as sailing lessons, paddleboard rentals and kayak rentals. Give your attendees something to talk about for months to come with this unique experience.
