Singapore-based Alila Hotels and Resorts, part
of Two Roads Hospitality, will open its first North American
resort property in California’s fabled Big Sur in October 2017.
Following a multimillion-dollar
revitalization, The Ventana Big Sur, an Alila Resort, will feature 59 refreshed guest
rooms, suites and villas, a full-service Spa Alila, two enhanced
outdoor pools with a new infinity-edge hot tub and outdoor
Japanese hot baths.
Ventana’s resort-wide enhancements will also
include a new Social House with three unique lifestyle spaces for
relaxing and connecting; the new 7,000-square-foot Ocean Meadow
Lawn for events and celebrations; a new Glass House Gallery; a new
Alila Experience Program featuring discovery-based guest
activities; and the debut of a luxury camping experience — Redwood
Canyon Glampsites — in the resort’s 20-acre redwood-canopied
Additionally, The Sur House restaurant, which
will have a
new concept and an expanded ocean-view patio, will offer
views of the Pacific Ocean.
“The introduction of Alila Hotels and Resorts to
the North American market is a significant milestone in Two Roads’
international growth strategy,” said Jamie Sabatier, Chief
Executive Officer of Two Roads Hospitality. “As a company that is
long synonymous with opening resorts in spectacular, bucket-list
destinations, it couldn’t be more fitting that Alila’s U.S. debut
will be along the iconic Big Sur coastline. This opening will
strengthen the global footprint of the brand and further cement
its position as a luxury leader in the boutique and lifestyle
Complimentary activities at the resort will include daily guided
walks through the serene landscape, yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates
classes and nightly wine tastings and cheese pairings. An on-site
experience coordinator will also be available to arrange further adventures.
“Since the Post family settled in Big Sur at the
end of the 19th century, Big Sur has represented the confluence of
ocean, forest, mindfulness and artistry un-paralleled anywhere
else in the world. I couldn’t be more excited for the opening of
Ventana Big Sur to once again bring travelers back to this special
part of the world,” said John Pritzker, co-chairman of Two Roads
Hospitality and founding partner and director of Geolo Capital.
“We look forward to shining a bright light on the new Ventana Big
Sur experience that celebrates the mystic beauty of Big Sur.”
