St. Simons Island, Georgia (September 12, 2014) The historic King and Prince Beach & Golf Resort (circa 1935) is the newest member of the Southern Living Hotel Collection, a carefully selected series of the most delightful hotel experiences the South has to offer. Capturing a charming experience that’s both distinctly different and completely Southern, The King and Prince embodies a commitment to excellence as defined within the four pillars of Southern Living: Food, Travel, Home and Garden. The Resort represents the core values and culture upon which Southern Living was created.


The only member of Southern Living Hotel Collection on the Georgia coast, The King and Prince exemplifies the magazine’s philosophy of providing what travelers expect at a southern hotel. The Collection carefully selects Four and Five Star level independent resorts, hotels and inns that offer the best in authentic southern travel, hospitality and experience.

Writers and Editors at Southern Living note “You know it when you see it, from perfectly crafted rooms and restaurants to breathtaking natural surroundings.”

THE KING AND PRINCE HOTEL HISTORY: If walls could talk, The King and Prince, on the National Register of Historic Places and a member of Historic Hotels of America, shares a rich legacy of its place in American history for 79 years. Originally opened as a private dance club, friends of owners Frank Horn and Morgan Wynn coined its name which befitted its regal atmosphere. This island beach resort has maintained a reputation for elegance and warm hospitality throughout each decade. The King and Prince has been a tranquil island haven for dignitaries, celebrities, discerning families and business travelers from pre WW II until today.
