Top 3 project announcements in August
TOPHOTELPROJECTS researchers have had a busy summer, adding more than 100 projects to the database over the past month.
Here we review three major global additions from August that you need to look out for.
The Ranch Hudson Valley
We start our worldwide odyssey in the Lower Hudson Valley, New York state, USA, where health and wellness brand The Ranch will open its first east coast destination in 2023.
The Ranch Hudson Valley will result from a conversion of the Table Rock Estate, set amidst 200 forested acres in a 40,000+ sq ft estate. It was first built in 1902 by JP Morgan.
New York designer, Steven Gambrel, principal of SR Gambrel, will be overseeing the layout and design of all spaces, including the property’s 25 guestrooms, a dining room overlooking the onsite lake and gardens, a spa and the transformation of the 2,000 sq ft ballroom into the gym for afternoon fitness, yoga and meditation classes.
The property will also include a 5,000 sq ft solarium, adjacent to the estate and overlooking the grounds, with year-round exercise and pool facilities. There will also be an outdoor pool, to accompany the property’s lake, for water activities to be incorporated into fitness programming in the summer months.
Four Seasons Resort Whistler
Across the other side of North America, Four Seasons Resort Whistler in Canada is to undergo a refurbishment of its private residences, with a completion date anticipated in December this year.
The renovations by CHIL Interior Design aspire to instil restorative qualities within the newly refined interior spaces. The new design seeks to transport nature’s soothing white noise from outside to inside, creating a luxurious, sophisticated, and ultra-relaxing home away from home.
Sleek new furnishings in neutral tones for indoor and outdoor living (including lanterns and planters for the terrace), modern accents and wall coverings, new wood floors, stone backsplash, custom pull-out sofas with integrated shelving, and elegant lighting are some of the enhanced features that will be added to elevate the feel, comfort, and aesthetic excellence of these residences.
Paasha Atelier Bali
Meanwhile, over in Indonesia, Absolute Hotel Services group is introducing its white label management portfolio, Absolute Collection, with the signing of Paasha Atelier Bali, which will involve redeveloping an existing resort in Kuta. It will be relaunched under its new name, post-renovation, and is targeted to open later this year.
The property will feature 175 guestrooms with a sophisticated contemporary design and full facilities including a swimming pool, fitness centre and food and beverage outlets.
