The King & Prince Resort Serves up the Perfect Addition to the Finest Cuisine!

 

After speaking about the King and Prince Resort located on the stunning island of St. Simons off the coast of Georgia, we have all come know that for the ‘best of the best’ there is no other place in the world to stay when ‘pampering’ is the order of the day. Not only are the accommodations magnificent, offering guests every single thing they could possibly wish for and more, but they also have the ‘5-Star’ dining that makes the mouth water just reading about it on their website. Savory is the only adjective to be used when it comes to the unmatched cuisine served inside and out at the King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort.

With relaxed southern hospitality, comes the dining experience of a lifetime. While sitting just steps away from the Atlantic Ocean, the King’s Tavern offers the only ocean front dining on St. Simons Island. The King and Prince historic Delegal Dining Room, with its magnificent stained glass window murals and ocean vistas, offers everything from the Southern Charm Sunday Brunch to the Legendary Friday Night Seafood Buffet. And the Ocean Terrace Grille offers the ultimate in casual dining.

For perfect locations you need the perfect menu, and the King and Prince is known to ONLY provide the best dishes at every meal, and now they serve the most unforgettable ingredient that makes any food or recipe even more delicious

The Savannah Bee Company redefines honey, and their delicious lines – from the ‘everyday’ to the ‘varietal’ honey products – offer the sweetness and flavor profile that makes the King and Prince dining even more unforgettable, as it is the perfect seasoning to be offered on that perfectly set table.

Luscious, flavorful – Savannah Bee Company honey is a ‘line’ full of delights from Grill Honey, Cheese Honey, and Tea Honey to an endless line that adds distinctive flavor to a marinade; a smoky sweetness for basting and grilling; and the perfect partner to make that wild salmon come to life. The honey flavors can tame the tang or complement the salty and instantly upgrade any meal, while still being the perfect sweetener for spicy Chai, aromatic Green Earl Grey, or a bold mug of Irish Breakfast tea.

Honey is like a fine wine…

The King and Prince Resort is the pinnacle of excellence…

The combination of the two makes for the most incredible vacation of a lifetime.

Until Next Time, Everybody!

The King & Prince Resort Celebrates a True Hero!

Monday, April 30th, 2012

Lewis Colam is rowing to raise money and awareness for Alzheimer’s.  The King and Prince hosted Lewis for a night of much needed rest from his voyage.

 

The King & Prince Resort Celebrates a True Hero!

 

We have spoken about the amazing King and Prince Resort in many articles over the past few months. We have spoken about the amazing members of their incredibly gifted staff. We have spoken about the luxury that each and every room provides. We‘ve presented you with the lasting images of the glorious scenery that involves flocks of nesting Sandhill Cranes and dolphins swimming in the surf as you walk along the shore of the sparkling Atlantic Ocean. But there’s so much more to say…

 

It’s been 75 years that this amazing resort has been entertaining guests. Seventy-five years of hospitality that has been found to be second to none. Recently, however, King and Prince was able to honor a hero in the minds of many, and offered their incredible hospitality to a man who has taken on a seriously difficult challenge for the purpose of bringing much-needed funds and worldwide awareness to the issue of Alzheimer’s. His name is Lewis Colam, and by the time I’m finished telling you about him, you will want to jump ‘on board’ with his spectacular quest and root for him every step of the way!

 

On March 3rd, Lewis Colam set off from Miami in a fifteen-foot, open-decked row boat (which offers no coverage from the wind, rain and whatever else Mother Nature has in mind to throw at him. His mission is to sail 1400 miles along the East Coast in order to raise $20,000 dollars for the Fisher Center for Alzheimer’s Research Foundation. (www.ALZinfo.org).

 

The Fisher Center is comprised of internationally renowned scientists under the direction of Nobel laureate, Dr. Paul Greengard. If you do not yet know, Dr. Greengard has been at the forefront of seminal research that has provided the conceptual framework for all modern day investigations into Alzheimer’s disease. The Fisher Center, headquartered in New York City, works with other leading research institutions around the world. Dedicated to three main goals, the Fisher Center strives to understand the cause of Alzheimer’s; find a cure for the horrific disease; and improve the care of people who live with the disease, in order to enhance their quality of life – not to mention offering support for the families and caregivers who must watch the devastation of their loved ones.

 

Lewis Colam is one of millions who had to watch a person he cared very much for succumb to Alzheimer’s, and he truly wanted to do something to bring this disease into the headlines. He wanted to take on a mission that would bring people from across the globe to their computer’s and cell phones – creating a team that would work together to stop this illness in its tracks.

 

What people will be most surprised about is the fact that Lewis has no prior rowing experience. Like so many who are out there rowing, biking, and heralding their expeditions in the media, Lewis is accomplishing his feat with absolutely no support. What I mean by this is the fact that there are no vehicle’s or people following him to help him along the way, or to watch out for his safety; he is completely alone, with not even a motor or sail for support. To do something like this is amazing, but when you add in the fact that Lewis has no seafaring experience whatsoever, you – like me – will become immediately mind-boggled by the entire journey.

 

I was lucky enough to speak with Lewis on his boat this afternoon, and he is still in good spirits. In fact, he likes the ‘traveling’ part the best; he loves the scenery and exploring all those hidden areas that most of us have never even gotten the chance to see. One of those hidden areas is on St. Simons Island, where the King and Prince Resort has its immaculate home base. The marshes, the vivid colors of the flowers – a picture that only Monet could do justice to. Lewis was offered a stay at the King and Prince as he ‘sailed by’ on his mission, and Lewis told me that the short time he spent there was beyond memorable.

 

He spoke of how lovely the staff was and how incredible it felt to be treated to a room surrounded by beautiful pools, tennis courts, etc. He said it was extremely comforting, after being out in the elements, to have a taste of real luxury.

 

Before the sun sets tomorrow, assuming Mother Nature is supportive, Lewis will be halfway through with his 1400 mile journey along the East Coast of America. I can’t speak enough about how (I suppose it’s cynical to insert the word ‘surprised’ in this sentence) so, let’s just go with say emotional I became after speaking with him. This particular journey is occurring with no PR, no agent, no headlines, no ‘future book contract’ in the works if Lewis achieves his goal…nothing. This is simply a man who’s doing something completely unselfish. He‘s trying to shine a light on one of the most frightening diseases to behold; and not only for the precious soul that’s diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, but also for the friends and family who must watch the decline with absolutely no way of helping the situation.

 

Lewis has also been most generous with his own website, adding some pretty fun and cool features that his followers and fans can use in order to feel as if they’re an actual part of his journey. Lewis has a real time GPS on his website that shows everyone exactly where he’s located at the moment. He ‘checks in’ every day, blogs, and leaves a short audio message to update listeners on all the trials, tribulations and blessings that have occurred during his trek. He even posts updates on Twitter and Facebook.

 

One of the most beautiful facets of his website is the photo album that Lewis has kept. From the pictures of people who have greeted Lewis at his stops to the images of the toll that the trip has taken thus far – fans and followers get an in-depth view of each and every day that Lewis braves the sea.

 

By welcoming this amazing man and providing the red-carpet treatment, the King and Prince Resort certainly honored a true hero that has taken on an incredible challenge for all the right reasons.

 

I am calling to all you generous and amazing readers out there to join with the King and Prince Resort - and the giving donors who have already been a part of this challenge! Help Lewis meet his goal, raise the money he desires, and join the fight to find a cure for Alzheimer’s once and for all!

 

Until Next Time, Everybody.

Amy

Bride & Groom in the OceanWaves lapping at the shore, seagulls flying overhead, a warm breeze kisses your skin….the aisle stretches out before you … and the man of your dreams is waiting for you right there under that palm tree at the water’s edge.  Whether your dream involves Flip Flops and a Low Country Boil or Manolos with Fine Dining, The King and Prince’s venues, extensive menus and outstanding service make the perfect backdrop for a most memorable event.
 
Weddings at The King and Prince are very special indeed.  I am Anne Thompson, the Wedding Catering Manager at the resort and for over 10 years now, I have had the pleasure of assisting brides in making their dreams come true in an incomparable setting.  It is most exciting – and quite an honor – to be a part of such a momentous occasion.
 
The King and Prince offers fantastic venues and catering for all events wedding related.
  • The Oceanfront Lawn is the quintessential beachside locale for welcome parties, rehearsal dinners, ceremonies and even dinner and dancing under the stars.
  • The historic Delegal Dining Room is an elegant spot for receptions with stained glass windows and a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean.
  • The Solarium is an intimate oceanfront spot perfect for bridal luncheons, rehearsal dinners and receptions.
  • The Retreat Room’s view speaks for itself.  Being on the second floor, you can see miles and miles of ocean!  It is lovely for rehearsal dinners, luncheons, receptions, brunches and even ceremonies.
  • The Lanier Ballroom is the largest of our venues and is made for dancing the night away!
Full details with the exact capacities of each of the venues and all of our menus may be seen in our Wedding Catering Kit.  Take a minute to check it out and be sure to let me know what questions you have rdriggs@mmihg.com.
The King and Prince provides the venue, tables, white linens, chairs, china, flatware, napkins, barware, and all of the food & beverage for our events.  Having had the good fortune to host LOTS of weddings ensures that our service staff is among the absolute best and most experienced you will find.  The waiters, bartenders, chefs and banquet captains are top notch – and believe me, these folks are capable of making or breaking any event.  We are truly blessed to have the best in the business!
 
Brides are able to choose vendors to provide flowers, cake, music, coordination and their own officiate.  We are one of the few resorts left who allow brides to bring in outside contractors for these items, allowing her to truly personalize her event and not end up with a cookie cutter hotel wedding.
 
I’ll look forward to updating the blog with real wedding photos.  I am at your service anytime you have questions so please don’t hesitate in contacting me if I may provide assistance!

King and Prince Dining

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Delegal Dining RoomHi, my name is Debora League.  I have been in the service industry for 30 years and have owned or operated numerous bars and or restaurants over the years. I am currently the Restaurant Manager at The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort on Saint Simons Island, Georgia. I have been with this company for almost 5 years and have to say it is one of the best experiences of my career. I manage many different food outlets at this resort, including the following:

The Atrium Café is what most coffee lover’s look for in the A.M. We serve “Starbucks” Coffee, Lattes, Cappuccinos, pastries and more.

The Blue Dolphin Restaurant that hosts: a breakfast buffet every morning, which includes a chef-attended omelet station and all of your traditional favorites. An incredible seafood buffet that is offered every Friday night, in addition to the regular menu that includes our local Wild Georgia Shrimp (no imported shrimp here). Some of my menu favorites are: the Shrimp and Grits, the lemon pepper Black Florida Grouper and the New Zealand lamb chops (cooked medium). We also serve a Southern Sunday Brunch that offers something for everyone.

The Paradise Beach Bar and Grill has the only outdoor beach-front dining on the Island, where you can sit and watch the dolphins play while enjoying regular or veggie burgers, hot dogs, salads and much, much more for a great price. I spend as much time as I can in this location because it never feels like work, no matter how busy we are.

Hampton Club

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

The Hampton ClubOur new blog is exciting for me to be a part of.  My name is Rick Mattox, General Manager & Golf Director at The Hampton Club on St. Simons Island.  The King & Prince opened the course in August 1989.  I was fortunate to join then in March of 1990 and have been here ever since.  Through a great deal of preparation we are currently undergoing a restoration of the original design by the architect Joe Lee.  Joe designed over 275 courses with the majority in the southeast and some overseas.  We selected Billy Fuller of Billy Fuller Golf Design to oversee the project; he came highly recommended as a restoration specialist.

 

Closing date was April 1, 2009 with a scheduled re-open date of October 1, 2009.  With “A Quality Golf Experience” as our mission statement, we sought to make our Hotel Guests and Members feel important to us by arranging several area courses for them to play during this time.  My staff handles all of the arrangements and is on location to assist with the group bookings.   Offering outstanding service is important to me, so I wanted that to continue even though our course is not open.

 

Hampton has 4 holes out in the marsh, connected by 800 feet of bridgework, which take your breath away on the back nine.  With over 95% of the people who play here saying, “this is the best golf experience I have ever had”, our goal is to put it back for the next generation to enjoy.

 

The restoration includes replacing greens with Mini-Verde the newest in the hybrid family.  Our tees, fairways, and rough will be Celebration, a new Bermuda grass that can handle shade well.    Our bunkers will be reshaped and grassed with Empire Zoysia.  Finally we have a collar of Tif-Sport to give us four types of grasses.   It will be a real “WOW” factor to see when you come to visit our hotel and play the course.  Whether it’s your first time or seventh time, you do not want to miss it.   

 

We will update you on the blog, but you can go to www.hamptonclub.com to view progress as work continues.  It is changing everyday!
