CARMEL, Calif., March 26, 2013 -- Quail Lodge Resort & Golf Club in Carmel Valley, California, re-opened today, following a three-year closure and $28 million renovation. With a renewed focus on family-friendly amenities and group facilities, the property has been refreshed and repositioned to offer family-friendly accommodations and exceptional value on the Monterey Peninsula.
"We are thrilled to show off the results of Quail Lodge's makeover and introduce a new resort concept to the region," said Sarah Cruse, General Manager of Quail Lodge & Golf Club. "The refreshed Quail Lodge offers beautifully updated rooms and facilities at very attractive rates. The new and improved resort offers the best value on the Monterey Peninsula without sacrificing the comfort and style that our guests are seeking."
Santa Monica-based Barry Design Associates has rejuvenated Quail Lodge, a favorite of families for generations, with a refreshing touch. All guestrooms, meeting and public spaces will debut a new look inspired by historic California ranch and Spanish colonial design elements, offering a look that is comfortable, modern and distinctly Californian. Interior color tones of warm golds and oranges reflect the beauty of the sun-drenched Carmel Valley, and each guestroom offers a private deck or patio that overlooks the lakes, golf course or lush gardens. Some guest suites also boast cozy fireplaces, perfect for enjoying a cool Carmel Valley evening.
Guests can enjoy an array of resort amenities at Quail Lodge including Edgar's, located in the Quail Golf Club, which offers lunch and dinner with eclectic and savory California cuisine. The 18-hole Robert Muir Graves-designed golf course is now managed by KemperSports Management, which operates golf, resort and sports facilities in 26 states and internationally. A heated outdoor pool, bocce court, tennis courts and weight and cardio center round-out the resort's comprehensive fitness offerings. The on-site Land Rover Experience Driving School invites guests to climb behind the wheel and master a variety of off-road obstacles.
The new Quail Lodge will also reintroduce enhanced meeting facilities with 6,500 square feet of flexible space including six conference rooms, banquet facilities for up to 200 guests, smaller breakout suites and colorful tents for garden parties, weddings and receptions, which can cater to 600 guests. With the majestic Santa Lucia Mountains as a backdrop, every event at Quail Lodge is set to be memorable.
