On August 29, 2013 Salamander Resort & Spa will open in historic Middleburg, Virginia and in the process will become the only luxury destination resort to open in America in 2013.
Since setting the opening date, the resort has been named to several 2013 World’s Top Hotel Openings lists, including those from Forbes and USA Today. It’s fair to say that it’s a project both area residents and worldwide travelers have been eagerly anticipating.
Located on 340 picturesque acres in the heart of Virginia’s horse and wine country the resort is just 40 miles west of Washington, D.C. and a 35 minute drive from Dulles Airport. With the historic village of Middleburg just steps away, guests may enjoy a short stroll or carriage ride to downtown shops and stores. Designed to blend into its natural environment and respect the architectural traditions of Virginia’s countryside, the resort features 168 rooms and suites, an exquisite 23,000-square-foot luxury spa with one-of-a-kind features like outdoor patios and a spa courtyard, a Virginia Piedmont-inspired signature restaurant overseen by Washington, D.C. Chef of the Year Todd Gray, a media-ready Cooking Studio, Wine Bar and Billiard Room and a two-acre Culinary Garden. All of the resort’s restaurants and its spa will be open every day to the public, while the Wine Bar will stay open until late in the evening.
In keeping with its geographical setting, the resort will also include a full-service equestrian center and an array of programming, while the property’s 22-stall stable will even offer equine enthusiasts the opportunity to bring their horses along on vacation. The resort also features 12,000 square feet of indoor conference and event facilities, including a Grand Ballroom and unique outdoor spaces like the Grand Lawn, Courtyard Garden and a restored 100-year-old Stallion Barn.
