The South is known for being a hospitable place where guests are welcome and can feel comfortable. This can also be said for local resorts and all-inclusive properties in particular.The simplicity of the all-inclusive concept is very inviting for guests and exudes the seamless nature of Southern hospitality. There is also the benefit that guests don’t have to worry about the cost of meals or activities. There are many great all-inclusive resorts in the South, from coastal islands to mountain getaways. Here are some of the places most beloved by the tourists.

Little St. Simons Island

Little St. Simons Island is a private island accessible only by boat where The Lodge can be found. It is among the top destinations worldwide and has plenty of beautiful wilderness with seven miles of beaches.

The Lodge is the sole resort on the island with the capacity for 32 overnight guests. There are several options for sleep, including single rooms and entire cottages. Clients can also opt to reserve the whole island.
