Originally intended as a temporary, “friendly little inn,” in 1928, the Mediterranean-style oasis of terra cotta roofs, sunlit garden patios and old-world
elegance of the Forbes Five-Star Cloister make it one of the country’s most beloved hotels.
The resort emerged from an extensive rebuild in 2006 which included the replacement of the original Cloister building. With many of its significant architectural features being preserved and relocated into the new, today’s Cloister offers 175 elegant guest rooms and suites that overlook the Black Banks River, Atlantic Ocean or lush coastal environment. In 2011 Harper’s Hideaway Report named The Cloister the #1 Family Resort.
