U.S. News Review

In addition to the excellent food (served in six different eateries) and the PGA golf courses, The Cloister at Sea Island boasts one of the best views on all of Sea Island, Ga. In other words, you'll want to request one of the rooms facing the Black Banks River. Previous guests gush over the number of activities available for young kids, like Camp Cloister (offering activities Mondays through Saturdays) and cookie-making. Slightly older kids might enjoy crabbing or fishing off the Cloister dock or horesback riding along the south end of Sea Island beach. Recent lodgers also rave about the expansive 65,000-square-foot Cloister Spa, which offers treatments like the guest-recommended "Botanical Gommage," a botanical cleanse, polish and massage. The resort sits on the island's southern tip, sharing real estate with its smaller sister hotel, The Lodge at Sea Island. The closest airport, Malcolm McKinnon (SSI), is less than a 10-minute drive away, and Savannah is about 64 miles north.
