The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation is debuting an array of renovations.
GREENSBORO, GA—The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation next month will debut newly renovated guestrooms, as well as golf course upgrades, new dining venues and spa treatments inspired by The Masters Golf Tournament, which coincides with the reveal.
The 251 redone rooms and suites offer a vibrant color palette and elements of classic Southern design, such as antique-style furnishings, rich pecan woods and custom hand-embroidered fabrics.
Other new offerings include: a newly renovated and reconfigured Georgia’s Bistro featuring new leather banquette seating, a rustic gnarled wood table, new chairs and oxidized copper tabletops, as well as new lighting fixtures, floor coverings and artwork. The Bistro will continue to feature Southern-inspired menus highlighted by regional, farm-to-table seasonal fare with additions from the herb garden; and a new coffee shop complete with pastries, ice cream, candy and cold beverages, along with a full assortment of Starbucks beverages.
In addition, Reynolds Plantation welcomed back noted golf course architect Bob Cupp to revisit his original course, The Landing, together with former Augusta National golf course superintendent Billy Fuller. The Landing is undergoing a renovation that includes hole redesign, new bunkering, the expansion of tee boxes and a new set of forward tees, as well as work on the cart paths and buildings. Much of Cupp’s original atmosphere is being recaptured with the planting of peripheral ornamental grasses that evoke a “heath” feel while adding shape and challenges to many holes. The Landing is scheduled to re-open in April.
A an array of Masters-themed spa treatments also are being offered throughout March and April, such as The Green Jacket Body Glow, a Vichy shower treatment highlighted by skin polishing with a nutrient rich scrub smelling of fresh green grass. A cilantro and lime infused oil is applied as a finish.
