Virginia’s Salamander Resort & Spa to Open in August 2013
Salamander Resort & Spa, the luxury resort being built in Middleburg, Va., will open in August 2013. Set on 340 acres and located a 30-minute drive from Washington, D.C.’s Dulles International Airport and an hour from the nation’s capital, the 168-room resort is already 65 percent complete. An investment of $11 million, the facilities were built by Salamander and recently began serving the town’s residents and businesses.
The resort will feature a 23,000-square-foot spa with “treehouse” treatment rooms, a full-service equestrian center with a 22-stall stable and practice ring, Virginia Piedmont-inspired dining overseen by James Beard-nominated Chef Todd Gray, a dedicated cooking studio, wine bar and culinary garden. Salamander guests will enjoy a Jack Nicklaus golf experience at nearby Creighton Farms Estates.
The resort will also offer 12,000 square feet of conference and event facilities, including a 5,000-square-foot grand ballroom and a restored 100-year-old Stallion Barn. Already registered for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, the Salamander Resort & Spa sales team is now accepting group bookings.
