Oregon Coast Resort Named one of “10 Best Resort Hotels in the West”
GLENEDEN BEACH, Ore. – July 17, 2017 – Salishan Spa and Golf Resort was named among Travel + Leisure’s “10 Best Resort Hotels in the West” as part of the travel magazine’s annual World’s Best Awards. Salishan was listed the No. 10 best resort hotel in the west and it’s among three properties in Oregon to receive the prestigious ranking.
“This is the first time Salishan has been named to the Travel + Leisure World’s Best list,” said Steven Hurst, general manager of Salishan Spa and Golf Resort. “It’s an honor to be noted among the most iconic properties in the world. We are thrilled that our guests and the readers of the magazine are responding positively to the recent changes on property. From newly renovated rooms to Samphire, our new signature restaurant, this award acknowledges the hard work our team has put into evolving this classic coastal retreat.”
From guest rooms to public areas, the resort has a fresh new aesthetic that enlivens its park-like setting but integrates contemporary touches. Salishan’s 205 spacious guest rooms were fully renovated with new soft and hard goods. The design and décor connects the property to its wooded setting but includes important elements that today’s modern traveler is seeking such as spacious sitting areas, multiple USB charging ports, new outdoor decks and patio furniture.
Salishan also debuted Samphire, the resort’s signature dining experience this spring. Inspired by succulents found near the sea, Samphire focuses on locally sourced ingredients from the ocean, mountains and neighboring valleys. The menu is designed to let the high-quality ingredients from passionate farmers, fishermen and artisans speak for themselves as well as highlight the incredible bounty of the Oregon Coastal Range.
The Travel + Leisure readers define excellence in travel by rating their experiences and evaluating hotels across the world on the following characteristics – rooms and facilities, location, service, restaurants and food, and value. The 2017 World’s Best Awards lists, as well as survey methodology are featured on www.travelandleisure.com now and will appear in the August issue.
Salishan Spa and Golf Resort is a 205-room resort conveniently located just two hours outside of Portland, on the Oregon Coast. The 250 acres of forested land that this iconic property sits on provides stunning views from any guest room. Originally designed as an upscale lodge, the resort still showcases local wood and stone complemented by an art collection featuring Northwest artists. The property ties together classic architecture and land-use sensibility. When not admiring the grounds, guests can take advantage of a world-class spa, 18-hole Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary golf course, indoor tennis facilities, pool, sauna and fitness center year-round. Condé Nast Traveler, in the magazine’s annual Reader’s Choice Awards, recently named Salishan the No. 3 Top Resort in Alaska and The Pacific Northwest.
