Getting back to Nature on your Georgia Vacation

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

DJ Jones and his wife MJ visited us last month.  He wrote a beautiful article that highlights our history and naturally beautiful location – as well as a Friday night dinner of steamed crab legs.

The hotel has survived fire, war, and decades of change, yet it still shines amongst an American coastline that’s become dominated by one soulless mega-resort after another. The key to the King and Prince’s success is simple: the resort possesses something which can’t be bought through the latest trends in hotel design and often takes decades to attain… Character.

Which would be the highlight of your weekend?  All-you-can-eat crab legs or gazing at the moon reflecting on the ocean from your oceanfront room at The King and Prince?

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.

BBQ and a Bike Ride – a Southern Island Adventure!

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Annette White visited us recently, and she nixed the idea of R&R on her free time, opting instead for a beach bike ride.  She also walked a block away from the resort to the scrumptious Beachcomber BBQ for dinner one night – complete with red wine in a plastic cup!

Read on, and we dare you to not feel the beach breeze and taste the tangy BBQ…
