Sea Island was the first resort in the country to offer whole body cryotherapy, a popular sports recovery technique used in Europe and by professional athletes and A-list celebrities. The treatment replaces the more traditional, lengthy, ice bath with a three-minute experience that feels great anytime, especially after a massage or physical activity.
The Spa and Fitness Center experience supplements the active lifestyle encouraged by Sea Island’s extensive sporting life, which includes world-class golf on three championship courses, golf instruction at the country’s finest Golf Performance Center, tennis on sixteen Har-Tru® clay courts, paddleboarding, sailing, fishing, salt marsh kayaking, hunting, children’s programs, extensive nature options, trap and skeet shooting, as well as energizing, creative special events and conferences with Pulitzer-prize winning authors, National Geographic photographers and explorers, scientists, high-tech experts adept at helping grandparents connect with grandchildren, Downton Abbey weekends with the stars, and more.
