King & Prince Hotel | Saint Simons Island

Spanning nearly 100 years, the 4* King and Prince Club has a varied history, starting life as a seaside dance club in 1935. During World War II, the hotel served as a naval coast-watching and training facility, reopening in 1947 as a popular island resort with gracious Mediterranean-style architecture. Renovated several times, the King and Prince is a member of the prestigious Historic Hotels of America.

You will be able to enjoy the soaring, sun-lit atrium, the ocean front dining, swimming pools, tennis courts and of course its renowned Joe Lee designed championship golf course.

Echo, the only ocean-front restaurant on St. Simons, offering classical seaside cuisine as well as some interesting cocktail is at the King and Prince as well as the more casual Sea Shack. . You have to try their version of a Bloody Mary!

New York to Toronto – 2015 (Smith)

I have just returned from a tailor made holiday made possible by Jeannette Dembrey. This was the first time I had ever organised such a major holiday and as it was a gift for my children after my retirement it was really important to get things right. I went to quite a few agencies but Jeannette was way better than any of the people who I spoke to. She was so professional and wanted me to get the best from the money I could afford. The holiday was absolutely amazing and everything went like clockwork. Jeannette had thought of everything even the connections between places and the things we would do in each town. We stayed in 6 hotels altogether starting in New York and ending in Toronto. I am amazed at how smoothly it went. Even my son who has travelled all over the world was impressed with the way things had been organised. I cannot praise Jeannette enough for her professionalism. Thank you Jeannette. I would recommend you to anyone with the satisfaction of knowing that you did an amazing job. Thank you.
