Sea Island, GA
The Cloister offers classic elegance and luxury without a hint of pretension. This barrier-island resort is known for its friendly Southern service and picture-perfect live oak trees draped with moss. Here you’ll find wood-beamed rooms accented with jewel-toned Turkish rugs; plush, pillow-topped beds; and privacy worthy of a G-8 Summit. (The 2004 Summit was hosted here.)
