The Water Island Hotel

The hotel on Water Island went through a number of name changes and physical changes during the period from its' opening on December 22, 1953 up to its destruction by Hurricane Hugo in 1989.

Here is an actual key to Room #9 of the Water Isle Colony Club, donated by long time Water Island resident, Pam Callanan.

It operated over the years as; 1953 - 1965 Water Isle Hotel, 1965 - 1977 Water Isle Colony Club, 1978 - 1982 Sugarbird Beach & Tennis Resort, 1982 - 1984 CLOSED, and lastly 1984 - 1989 Sea Cliff Hotel.

Thanks to long-time Water Island resident, Tom McCoy, we now have a token for a FREE DRINK at the Water Isle Hotel.
