Business Traveler (USA) - - TRIED & TESTED -

The Westin is the largest ho­tel on Jekyll Is­land and its con­ve­nient lo­ca­tion near the con­ven­tion cen­ter and the shop­ping vil­lage makes it pop­u­lar with fam­i­lies on va­ca­tion as well as meet­ing groups. Open less than two years, it has quickly de­vel­oped a loyal fol­low­ing of re­peat guests. It is also the founder and home of the pop­u­lar Whiskey, Wine, and Wildlife Fes­ti­val that draws hun­dreds of vis­i­tors to raise money for the Jekyll Is­land Foun­da­tion that sup­ports the is­land’s nat­u­ral habi­tat and wildlife.

Board­walks con­nect the re­sort and pool area with the beach where chairs and um­brel­las await in sea­son. Jekyll Is­land is a state park mean­ing devel­op­ment is lim­ited and na­ture reigns paramount. It’s part of the Golden Isles of Ge­or­gia and is a short 20-minute drive from Brunswick.
