If you’re looking for a romantic getaway that breaks the mold, look no further than the historic Jekyll Island Club Hotel. Resting on beautiful Jekyll Island, one of four islands that make up the Golden Isles along Georgia’s Atlantic coast, this Jekyll Island resort offers a little of everything you expect in a vacation with your sweetheart: complete comfort, a romantic island setting, and plenty of opportunities for both relaxation and adventure. While known for being a great destination for families, Jekyll Island Club Hotel is here to show you just how ideal it is for romance, too.
At its start in 1887, Jekyll Island Club was an exclusive club for some of the wealthiest families in America including the Rockefellers and the Vanderbilts, and operated privately until World War II. When it reopened in 1986, the club was transformed into a luxury resort that offers modern amenities while staying true to its historical roots.
Today, it welcomes travelers from around the world to experience its historic grandeur and relaxing setting. Couples of all ages are sure to discover that Jekyll Island is more than happy to host your romantic retreat.
Whether you're looking to celebrate your anniversary or just interested in escaping for a weekend, you and your sweetheart are bound to have an unforgettable time. Mornings can be filled with cups of coffee out on your private porch, followed by afternoons spent poolside soaking up the sun, or out at the private beach pavilion with your toes in the sand.
Grab your partner and wander along the undiscovered Driftwood Beach, enjoy riverfront sunsets followed by nights underneath the stars with a cold drink, or casually bike along the 20 miles of bicycle paths that showcase the unique surroundings. Nights are easy to plan, as a romantic candlelit dinner in the historic Grand Dining Room is just what any couple's getaway calls for!
Yes, the Jekyll Island Club Hotel is a great destination for family vacations, but perhaps the next time you’re thinking about a weekend getaway leave the kids at home instead. Come and get lost in the unspoiled island surroundings and history of a hotel that is a snapshot in time!
