World's Best Hotels: The Cloister Sea Island

Courtesy of Sea Island Resorts

No. 23 The Cloister Sea Island, GA

Score: 94.63

Long a favorite of the East Coast Establishment, this 1928 Mediterranean-style mansion is on 1,000 acres of a barrier island south of Savannah. Beach Club Suites come with kitchens, fireplaces, balconies, and easy access to three pools, an ice cream parlor, a movie theater, and a children's center. Hop on the Cloister Belle, a restored antique yacht, for a 90-minute tour of the salt marsh to see oyster beds and live shrimp.
