Guests can take advantage of complimentary Internet access, a quarter mile of private beach, a poolside lounge and access to numerous outdoor land- and sea-based activities including bike rentals, beach chair and umbrella rentals, paddle boarding and skim boarding. For families traveling with kids, the hotel offers a Kid’s Club with daily activities, and in the winter months, guests can enjoy the Snowbird Activities Program.

Located on scenic Jekyll Island, guests can enjoy local attractions including the Summer Waves Water Park, Jekyll Island Golf Course and the Georgia Sea Turtle Center. Additionally, travelers can dine at various on-site restaurants including the poolside Rusty Anchor Bar and Grille, NorthShore Coffee & Cocktails and, opening late summer 2015, Beach House, the hotel’s signature restaurant that serves locally sourced seafood and coastal fare.
