Hotel Review: After a $10 million renovation, the The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa is poised to make itself one of the leading luxury and green-minded resorts in the New Year. Inspired by the resort’s expansive art collection and existing architectural details, the resort’s fresh take on classic design is both invigorating to the senses and conscious of the environment.
Through involvement with Green Seal, a non-profit organization committed to environmental standard setting, the Westin Savannah has begun a journey to create a balance between their business goals and sustainability. From the use of energy-saving lighting to using reclaimed water to irrigate the golf course, the Westin Savannah is a leader in green endeavors. These efforts combined with Savannah’s character have created a unique retreat for the couple looking to escape, the energetic family, or the focused business man.
The resort’s location on an island on the Savannah River puts you at the heart of beautiful and historical surroundings. Experience the riverfront on a ferry tour and see the historic Fort Jackson, or hop on a trolley for a more candid glimpse. As the home of the largest Historic District in the country, exploring the area is a must and the Westin Savannah Harbor Resort puts you at the heart of it all.
All of the “re-envisioned” guestrooms, suites, meeting rooms and public spaces feature state-of-the-art amenities but still remain true to Westin’s signature style as well as Savanna’s Old South charm. Each guestroom and suite is focused on your full renewal – Heavenly Beds beckon for a restful night while the Heavenly Baths, with fully customizable showers, refresh and prepare you for the day. The resort’s suites, boasting over 1,000 square feet each, greet you with outstanding views overlooking the Savannah River and Historic District through numerous bay windows and are the ideal location for business or casual gatherings with custom-stocked refreshment centers and large dining tables.
But what guests of the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa enjoy most are the activities and features that will keep you busy during the day. Four Har-Tru tennis courts, also lit for night play, are perfect for an afternoon game before enjoying lunch at The Club Grille. True to its name, the resort is home to an 18-hole PGA Golf course, which was designed by the renowned architect Robert Cupp in conjunction with the legendary Sammy Snead, perfect for anyone looking to test their skills.
Finally, if you are looking for some well-deserved R&R, treat yourself to an afternoon indulging in Heavenly Spa’s European spa experience. Relax in a sauna or eucalyptus steam room before enjoying a treatment featuring indigenous fruits, flowers and plants, all executed expertly by the spa’s highly trained therapists. At last, your day is complete when you enjoy the Southern cuisine of Aqua Star, created by executive chef Roger Michel.
The Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa has prepared itself with all the amenities you and your loved ones look for in a luxury resort, whether you are looking to escape for the weekend and enjoy the beautiful grounds of the resort or take an extended vacation and explore the historic area of Savannah, the Westin Savannah will not disappoint.
