Unleashing your Creative ‘Spirit’
St. Simons Island, Georgia (January 2013) The ageless King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort is a gem in the crown of St. Simons Island, Georgia. Welcome to where your mind and body can relax and unleash your ‘Creative Sprit’. AOL Travel, National Geographic & USA Today all shout their praises for Top Island in America ~ St. Simons Island!
Our SPRING 2013 media trip’s theme ‘Unleashing Your Creative Spirit’ introduces:
• ghosts of the island with ‘Cap’ Fendig
• hands-on creative painting with a local artist
• cooking with ‘spirits’
• experience the Resort’s true spirit from 1935 to today
• meet spirited island personalities.
The spirit of Southern Cuisine that emanates from the hotel’s kitchen with our new Executive Chef will bring out your own creative spirit as we indulge in hands-on culinary fun with some of the finest GEORGIA GROWN products: pecans, peaches, wine and spirits, shrimp, crab, Vidalia onions, honey and chocolates. Don an apron while preparing our Hotel’s award-winning ‘Shrimp and Grits’ with the Chef’s culinary team and allow Vinny D’Agostino (Food & Beverage Director) to enchant you with the most unique cocktail spirits throughout your visit..
*Spirits and wine tastings, local farm-to-table products and signature muffin baking competition will be woven into the trip’s culinary tapestry.
Let us introduce our Resort’s varied distinctive accommodations ~
• Oceanfront suites
• Beach cottages
• Cabana rooms
• Resort residences.
Hop aboard the Lighthouse Trolley with ‘Cap’ Fendig for a nature eco tour (on land and sea), cruise on the shrimp boat ‘Lady Jane’ for a memorable ‘fishing’ adventure and enjoy the Resort’s commitment to first-class Southern hospitality and service.
As you explore the vast beauty of Georgia’s golden coastline, we trace a path of centuries-old heritage that captures America’s Native Settlers, Spanish Missions, Plantations and The Mill Era. If walls could talk, The King and Prince, (on the National Register of Historic Places and a member of Historic Hotels of America), would share a rich legacy that has maintained a reputation for elegance and warm Southern hospitality throughout each decade. The Resort has been a tranquil island haven for dignitaries, celebrities, discerning families and business travelers since 1935 ~ pre WW II until today.
USA TODAY – June, 2012 – ONE OF THE GREAT AMERICAN BEACHES!
AOL 2010 Announces: “America’s Top 10 Islands to Visit ~ St. Simons is #3” ~ The largest of Georgia's four Golden Isles, St. Simons (Top #3) has beckoned bluebloods and birders for a century with marshes, maritime forests, and Mediterranean Revival mansions. Patrol the waters on a working shrimp boat, sail on a dolphin-watching tour, or just bask on pearly sands”.
National Geographic 2010: Georgia Sea Islands~ Native Americans, British soldiers and wealthy late 19th-century vacationers have all left their marks on Georgia's sun-soaked barrier islands. Local residents have worked to safeguard relics of this multi-layered history. The islands' ecology is also in good shape. Though pressure to overbuild is mounting, most islands remain either "undeveloped or tastefully developed."
