Christmas at Sea Island

December 22–26, 2023

Though the Beach Boys crooned “Christmas Comes This Time Each Year,” this season will be one like no other. From Storytime with Santa’s Elves to our life-size Gingerbread House in the Solarium to a Reindeer Dash fun run, we have every reason for you to join us this Christmas holiday.

Welcome in the holiday week while making spririts bright at the Taste of the Restaurants Cocktail Demonstration in the newly renovated Georgian Rooms. Later, send the kids to hear Storytime with Santa’s Elves and take home a book signed by your favorite elf. On Saturday, Santa’s Elves will be back to help you decorate your very own Gingerbread House. After creating your Gingerbread House, children can gather in the Ocean Room to create fun and festive ornaments to hang on your family tree for years to come. The afternoon brings a Sea Island favorite, our 21st annual Reindog Parade, so be sure to dress your pups in their Christmas best! In the evening, kids can join together for a Merry Grinchmas Kid’s Night Out full of festive fun while you gather with us for the Christmas Holiday Reception in The Cloister Colonial Lounge and Black Banks Terrace with live music, hors d’oeuvres, and libations.

On Christmas Eve, grab your antlers and sleigh bells for our Reindeer Dash Family Fun Run followed by the annual Children’s Christmas Party beginning at 9 a.m. where Santa and Mrs. Claus will join us for crafts, games, snacks, and much more. Join us in the evening for the Christmas Eve Dinner in The Cloister Ballroom with music, a menu to remember, and libations followed by our Yule Log Ceremony. Before you know it, Christmas has arrived! Gather as a family and celebrate with one of our special brunches or dinners on tap for the day. Christmas at Sea Island is unlike any other!
