Tuesday November 5th, 2013 - 10:07AM


SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, CA—The Landing Resort & Spa will open its doors here in December 2013.

Offering 88 guestrooms with fireplaces and private decks, amenities at the resort include a new Greek and California cuisine restaurant, a full-service spa and a conference center.

Jim and Nancy Demetriades own the property. Nancy Demetriades, an interior designer, created the look of the hotel. According to her, she used the stone on the outside of the building, gas lights and select traditional pieces in the room to achieve the feeling that the hotel had been there for years. The designer noted that she also used modern pieces to marry modern with traditional.

All rooms feature contemporary, European-style furnishings, wood floors, marble bathrooms, custom-made headboards and stonework, as well as 55-in. wall-mounted televisions, in-room Keurig coffee service, pillow top beds, premium down pillows and comforters, heated bathroom floors, heated toilet seats, waterfall showers and private decks, most with a Lake Tahoe view. Select suites also offer aromatherapy, heat therapy, music therapy, light therapy, steam showers, heated towel racks and thermo masseur tubs in the guest bath.

Warmth and light are key design features throughout the resort: all rooms have fireplaces; the lobby has an oversized stone-faced fireplace; outdoor fire pits on a lakeside patio outside the new Jimmy’s Restaurant serve as a gathering spot for guests; and the resort is lit with gas lamps.

Additional resort amenities include a backlit onyx-walled bar, outdoor pool and hot tub, a fitness center with steam showers and a lake-view meeting room and boardroom.

Complimentary amenities include valet service, business center, high-speed WiFi and internet connections. Seasonal amenities include complimentary bicycles and free ski storage, ski valet and boot warmers.

Jimmy’s Restaurant, constructed and opening with the hotel, serves wood-fired Greek seafood and locally sourced California cuisine.

The Landing’s full-service spa and hair salon offers customized spa treatments using organic and natural botanicals, including sports-specific treatments. The spa also includes a sauna, steam room, special couple’s room and Spa Sanctuary serving a selection of detoxifying teas.
