Lake Tahoe, CA, October 14, 2009 — The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company is on track to open its new resort in Lake Tahoe on Dec. 9. Major exterior construction for the resort is near completion, including the gondola that connects to the Village-at-Northstar and the new quad chairlift.
Called The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe, the $300 million project will have 170 guest rooms, 23 private Ritz-Carlton residences and 25 Ritz-Carlton Destination Club residences.
Perched slope-side in the Northstar-at-Tahoe ski area, it is within a 15 minute drive of both Lake Tahoe and the historic town of Truckee. The resort will feature ski-in, ski-out access with mountain concierge services; Manzanita, the resort’s signature restaurant by renowned San Francisco chef Traci Des Jardins; a 17,000 square foot spa and fitness center; and preferred access to the Old Greenwood and Coyote Moon golf courses. An inter-mountain gondola will connect guests between the nearby Village-at-Northstar and The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe resort.
In addition to the hotel opening, The Ritz-Carlton Club, Lake Tahoe will open its doors to Members on December 18. Located directly adjacent to The Ritz-Carlton Highlands, Lake Tahoe, the 25 two-, three- and four-bedroom fractional residences ranging from approximately 1,423 to 2,434 square feet will boast mountain and valley views of the Sierra Nevada. A press release in Sept. quoted fractional prices ranging from the low $200,000s to more than $700,000 per interest. Deeded, fractional ownership at The Ritz-Carlton Club, Lake Tahoe provides Members and their guests with a minimum of twenty-one days of use each year.
The Ritz-Carlton Destination Club is an equity-based luxury travel program that provides a choice in Membership and the opportunity to explore a wide variety of locations and experiences.
