Let us Introduce You to The King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort

We are an oceanfront icon on St. Simons Island, Georgia. Reviews from guests and meeting planners have earned the resort TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence for ten consecutive years.


The King and Prince Today

Guests enjoy the comfort of our atrium lobby, with an ocean view living area and coastal furnishings. The finest coastal cuisine is available for breakfast, lunch, dinner, happy hour and more at ECHO, the island’s only oceanfront restaurant and bar. ECHO salutes St. Simons Island’s naval history during World War II, a theme which resonates through the architecture and décor. The ocean view bar offers an extensive wine list, handcrafted cocktails, and a casual and friendly ambiance…perfect for gathering after a day of meetings.

Meeting Space

The King and Prince has always been known for its oceanfront event spaces. The property accommodates groups of up to 270 for a banquet, 300 in a theatre style, and 220 in a classroom set.

Outdoor receptions on the Oceanfront Lawn are popular on group itineraries and the newest outdoor venue, the Atlantic Court, is already climbing to the top of the favorite spaces list.

The most remarkable feature of the Lanier Ballroom renovation is the wrap-around pre-function area, which increased space for coffee breaks, receptions, and trade shows.

Meeting attendees are always impressed with the stunning panoramic ocean view from the Retreat Room.

The Delegal Room, with its 13 stained glass windows and panoramic ocean views, is also suitable for meetings, banquets, and receptions.

Our staff’s true southern hospitality is what sets us apart. Meeting planners have commented that the resort’s team of catering professionals makes planning and executing meetings here a smart choice.


Accommodations & Amenities

The resort offers a broad array of accommodations in a variety of settings, sizes and décor with 78% offering picturesque views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The resort’s three oceanfront pools and spacious sun deck are surrounded by plentiful lounge chairs and umbrellas, in a tropical setting.  The King and Prince Golf Course offers a challenging layout with ancient forests, vast salt marshes and dramatic island holes.

Offsite, attendees may enjoy excursions and recreation options on their own, or planners can work with the resort’s catering professionals to customize group or team-building events.

St. Simons Island was recently awarded America’s Favorite Beach Town by Travel+Leisure, one of the Top 10 Islands in the U.S. by Conde Nast Traveler, and one of America’s Happiest Seaside Towns by Coastal Living.
