Jekyll Island Club Resort

EVERYTHING IS DIFFERENT OUT HERE

It's been that way since 1888, when iconic families like the Vanderbilts, Morgans, Pulitzers, and Rockefellers were members of the Jekyll Island Club. They came for the winters by private rail cars and luxurious yachts. The days were filled with red-bug races on the beach, golf along the ocean, tennis on grass courts, and dinner lasted for hours in the Grand Dining Room as the Members laughed, celebrated, and planned entirely new worlds. Today, we invite you to explore our history and make your own, no matter where you choose to stay – the Island Club, Island Cottages or our new beachfront getaway – the Jekyll Ocean Club.

Out here, you’ll find an island’s worth of beach and natural beauty. And a resort’s worth of amenities and long lasting memories.

On this slice of paradise your options are pretty much unlimited.

Island Club Clubhouse

130 YEARS OF MEMORIES AND COUNTING

EXLORE OUR HISTORY >

The Clubhouse with its elegant spire first opened in 1888. Over time it was expanded to include the Annex and accommodations for the Member’s Guests, or “Strangers” as they were affectionately called, and a few Members even built their own Cottages.

In the mid-1980s, the property was entirely restored. Today we invite you to experience our storied history and grand traditions. And create your own.

"TOP TEN ISLAND" - Travel and Leisure

Our little island is part of the aptly named Golden Isles – named by Travel and Leisure as the “The Top 10 Islands in the Continental U.S.” in 2018. What make us different are our philosophies. No more than a third of the island may ever be developed. So, even today, you can walk the paths laid by our original members. Find real nature and unspoiled beach. Become a kid again.
