Alila to make North American debut in Big Sur

by Jane Kitchen | 31 Jul 2017

Singapore-based Alila Hotels & Resorts will open its first North American resort property in California’s fabled Big Sur region in autumn 2017.

Transformed from the Ventana Inn into 'Ventana Big Sur, an Alila Resort', the multi-million-dollar revitalisation is being led by San Francisco-based interiors firm BraytonHughes Design Studios and architecture firm Parks & Associates of Carmel, California.

Included in the development will be 59 revamped 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.

A new Social House will include three lifestyle spaces “for relaxing and connecting,” a new Alila Experience Program will feature discovery-based guest activities, and a luxury camping experience – Redwood Canyon Glamp sites – is being developed in the resort’s 20 acres of redwood forest.

The resort will offer guided daily walks through the landscape, yoga, Tai Chi and Pilates classes, and an on-site experience coordinator.

“The introduction of Alila Hotels & Resorts to the North American market is a significant milestone in Two Roads’ international growth strategy,” said Jamie Sabatier, CEO of Alila’s parent company, Two Roads Hospitality. “As a brand that is long synonymous with opening resorts in spectacular, bucket-list destinations, it couldn’t be more fitting that Alila’s US debut will be along the iconic Big Sur coastline. This opening will strengthen the global footprint of Alila and further cement its position as a luxury leader in the boutique and lifestyle sector.”

Alila currently has 12 luxury properties across Asia and the Middle East, with 26 new properties slated to open through 2020.
