Georgia’s Gorgeous Getaways An intimate look at the Peach State’s Golden Isles by CATHY H. BURROUGHS Cathy Burroughs shares her passion for travel in month’s eCREATIVE with spotlights on two of Georgia’s secluded coastal barrier islands and haunts: St. Simon's and Jekyll Island - when you can find luxury from another era at the King and the Prince and the Jekyll Island Club. ST. SIMON’S ISLAND St. Simon's Island’s King + Prince Golf Resort (kingandprince.com), once a dance pavilion and center of the Island’s night life, this - the island’s only ocean front luxury hotel with both beach and extensive pool gardens and private pools and hot tubs throughout - is more like a castle really with its recent 7.7 million dollar renovation that took the already posh and lovely hotel to an entirely new level. With its many room choices including a turreted room with hardwood floors - once the Honeymoon Suite to richly appointed and tapestried cabana rooms (our favorite!) and the wonderfully private villas with balconies, and their own private pools, hot tubs – even their own stacking washer and dryer all with oceanfront views. Enjoy the custom pizzas delivered to your room or the newly renovated lobby fire place seating area, outdoor ocean front dining or the newly recreated pool area. The King and Prince, St. Simon’s Island only luxury hotel, is more like a castle with its recent 7.7 million dollar renovation. Discover the hotel’s completely revamped outdoor pools and gardens as well as its completely redone and reinvented menu with full breakfast, lunch and dinner, both indoors and out and the hotel’s many gardens, twists,
