Drinks by the pool are always a great way to relax.

Talk about a view. Nothing like seeing the coastline and greenery of the Georgia Coast.

A bit of history to set the scene: The Jekyll Island Club was formed in 1886 and was unlike any club of its day. Its Members included names like Rockefeller, Morgan, and Pulitzer. The retreat was the Members southern hideaway built for entertaining families and friends with an array of riverfront and beachside experiences. Imagine days filled with beachside motor-buggy races, oceanfront golfing, grass tennis, and opulent dinners in the Grand Dining Room. The Club ceased operations during WWII, and the State of Georgia purchased the island and Club in 1947. Under the State’s stewardship, the island’s unspoiled nature remains (development is limited to one-third of the island), and through thoughtful partnerships, including with Northview Hotels and Resorts in 2016, Jekyll Island Club Resort continues its legacy as an authentic Low Country escape.
