Award-winning Historic Greenbrier Golf Resort & Spa

Posted: Oct. 1st, 2009  |  By JustLuxe Team
Luxury Resorts: Located on 6,500-acres of lush landscape in West Virginia's Allegheny Mountains, The Greenbrier award-winning resort has been offering a welcoming home to its guests since 1778.

A National Historic Landmark, The Greenbrier offers guests a stunning array of services and amenities, including elegant meeting and event space, a variety of fine restaurants and bars as well as access to more than 50 recreational activities. The property includes three championship golf courses, a luxurious 40,000 square-foot Spa as well as shopping.

West Virginia businessman Jim Justice recently purchased The Greenbrier resort along with The Greenbrier Sporting Club; he has big plans for the luxury retreat.

"Our near-term goal is to give The Greenbrier a fresh start," said Justice. "Even though the current economy is taking its toll on the resort, we are going to take a long-term view by focusing on reclaiming our five-star status and making the right investments for future growth."

New plans for the resort include transforming the former Hemisphere restaurant into a steakhouse called Prime 44 West, under the guidance of Jerry West. The restaurant will be open to both registered and non-registered guests of the resort and will feature a chef's table and private dining room.

Another new addition to the favorite resort will be the addition of an underground, Monte Carlo-style, casino. Although not slated to open until April 2010, Greenbrier guests and members can get a sneak peak at the new amenity in a temporary casino, including slot and table games, located in the resort's Virginia Wing, beginning October 1.

The elegant permanent casino will feature 320 slot machines and 38 full-variety table games including craps, roulette, blackjack, mini-baccarat, poker varieties and poker tables as well as a champagne passing nightly at 8pm to toast to guests' luck. Just one level above the gaming floor, a green space of approximately 80,000 square feet will boast new retail and dining areas as well as additional guest amenities.

All of the new plans for The Greenbrier serve to enhance the resort's lengthy history as a luxury destination.
