Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, a division of The Marcus Corporation , today announced the addition of spacious, all-season villas to the award-winning Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in Lake Geneva, Wis.
Twenty-nine villas will be added to the Grand Geneva campus, which currently includes 355 guest rooms at the expansive Grand Geneva Resort & Spa, and 225 suites at Timber Ridge Lodge & Waterpark. By June 2017, the Grand Geneva campus will offer more than 600 units combined.
The villas will feature studio, one, two and three bedroom accommodations. Each unit will include a full kitchen, fireplace, flat screen TVs, washer and dryer and deluxe furnishings. The interior design of the villas will incorporate visual elements of the beautiful outdoors while providing a comfortable and upscale setting. The villas will be created by renovating several currently unused buildings adjacent to the WELL Spa® + Salon.
“The Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is a very special, all-season destination for leisure and business guests,” said Joseph Khairallah, chief operating officer of Marcus Hotels & Resorts. “The addition of the villas at Grand Geneva is a multi-million dollar investment designed to enhance the resort experience for travellers who want expanded, upscale accommodations,” added Khairallah.
Half of the villas will be available beginning March 1, 2017 and the remaining units will be open by June 2017. The villas will provide spacious accommodations for a variety of guests including business and leisure groups, golfers, skiers, snowboarders, girlfriend getaways, couples and families. Villa guests will be able to enjoy all the amenities of the resort combined with their own outdoor swimming pool during the summer season. Six fire pits will also be added for evening enjoyment and entertainment.
“Just steps away from the main resort, the villas will provide a unique experience for those who want to get away but with all the conveniences of home,” said Grand Geneva Managing Director Steve Magnuson. “Our ongoing commitment to this exceptional property has allowed us to further the Grand Geneva as a top Midwest destination and one of the best golf resorts in the country.”
The resort originally opened in 1968 as the Lake Geneva Playboy Club Hotel. The Marcus Corporation purchased this Frank Lloyd Wright inspired resort in 1993, and reopened it as the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa in 1994. Over the years, the company enhanced the quality of the property by adding three successful restaurants, renovating the award-winning golf courses, adding Timber Ridge Lodge and Waterpark, expanding the meeting spaces, and renovating all of the guest rooms and suites.
Grand Geneva Resort & Spa features a wide variety of activities for all ages and all seasons including golf, swimming, skiing, horseback riding and relaxing at the luxurious WELL Spa® & Salon.
