New Year’s at Sea Island

New Year’s at Sea Island

How do you like to celebrate? From big and bold to quiet and low key, we have a party for every mood, a celebration for every taste. Tea parties for little princesses, Beach Club party for families, and a New Year’s Bash just for kids. A grand dinner in an elegant ballroom. A party under the stars. Champagne, dancing, and even a casino. Epic epicurean events and casual Southern ones. Lots of fun activities for kids, such as age-old favorites, Cookie Cutters and Bingo. We’ve got every corner of Sea Island covered, with all festivities leading up to the countdown at midnight at The Cloister—party central—for a sparkling champagne toast to the New Year with spectacular fireworks. Then wake up with a daring dip in the brisk January waters of the Atlantic on New Year’s Day in the Annual Polar Bear Plunge. There are many ways to ring in the New Year. At Sea Island, we’ve got lots of them!

Of course there will be noisemakers, hats, confetti. But there will also be exciting activities. Vibrant entertainment. And traditions firmly entrenched in the hearts of staff, members and guests.
Sea Island is an old acquaintance that will definitely not be forgotten.
