Oyster chooses 5-star lakeside resort for “elegant chalet decor and a host of amenities”

A luxury oasis on Lake Tahoe’s southern shores, The Landing Resort boasts fireplaces, decks, plush robes and comfy club chairs in rooms, plus numerous guest amenities – including free in-town transport – for an award-winning stay.

South Lake Tahoe, California – March 2, 2017 – The Landing Resort & Spa has been on the receiving end of numerous travel industry and restaurant-related awards since it opened in 2013, and the popular resort announces that it has received yet another. Oyster – known as the world’s most comprehensive reviewer of hotels – has named Lake Tahoe’s only five-star boutique lakeside resort to its exclusive roster of the Best Hotels in California and Best Luxury Hotels in the United States.”

“With elegant chalet decor and a host of amenities, the Landing Resort & Spa offers a luxury stay across from a private beach on Lake Tahoe and near Heavenly Village and the Stateline casinos,” writes Oyster, which also gives the resort its highest “5-pearl” rating. “Its 77 stylish rooms have fireplaces, mini-fridges, Keurig coffeemakers, private balconies or patios (some with lake views), and luxurious bathrooms with heated floors and toilet seats,” the review continues.

“We are thrilled and honored to be included as one of the best of the best,” says Henri Birmele, General Manager of The Landing. “While our mission is simply to offer gracious and indulgent service, lush accommodations and above-and-beyond amenities every single day, it is always gratifying to be recognized for our efforts.”

Oyster offers context and insight into its hand-picked selections on the Oyster.com website: “We here at Oyster have been lucky enough to have visited thousands of hotels around the globe and across the states. The U.S. is known for having high standards when it comes to hotels, and hotels stateside offer some of the most decadent services around. So, we’ve put together a list of the best luxury properties in the States for those planning a luxe trip – and for those who just like to dream.”

The Landing is a dream destination, indeed. Situated adjacent to Lakeside Beach – Outside magazine named Lake Tahoe “Best Lake” in its 2014 Travel Awards – and mere blocks from the Heavenly Village & Gondola, Village Center and gaming casinos, this premier year-round resort offers an abundance of amenities and nearby activities for guests to enjoy, from summer adventures like golf, hiking, biking, kayaking and fishing, to winter fun such as skiing and snowboarding (alpine and cross-country), snowmobiling, dogsledding and sleigh rides.

Jimmy’s, the elegant and comfortable on-site restaurant, serves Greek-inspired, Mediterranean-influenced cuisine for three meals daily, and the appealing and relaxing full-service spa features a variety of signature treatments. The cozy yet spacious rooms are individually and lavishly decorated, with stone-lined gas fireplaces and private balconies, most with lake and mountain views.

In addition to the recognition from Oyster, in 2016 The Landing Resort was ranked #1 in Condé Nast Traveler’s Readers’ Choice Awards for Top Northern California Hotels. The Landing also has been the recipient of four Travel Weekly Gold Magellan Awards, as well as the Luxury Travel Guide’s Luxury Resort and Spa of the Year 2016 and Haute Grandeur’s Best Resort Spa – North America.
