Kiwanda Lodge & Spa breaks ground in Pacific City, Oregon
Distinctive Oregon Coast luxury retreat caters to adventure-seekers and the active Pacific NW lifestyle, will welcome guests mid-summer 2017
Pacific City, Oregon (November 3, 2016)—Come summer 2017 those seeking a distinctly Pacific Northwest lodging experience have a new destination to frequent: introducing Kiwanda Lodge & Spa at Pacific City. The Kiwanda Lodge concept responds to a gap in the market for a luxury oceanfront experience that presents outdoor recreational opportunities for the next generation traveler.
The resort—planned to showcase the uncommon sporty culture of the carefree, casually-elegant, and authentic Pacific City lifestyle—is the inspiration of Jeff Schons and Mary Jones at the helm of the Nestucca Ridge Family of Companies. The company also owns and operates the Inn at Cape Kiwanda, Cottages at Cape Kiwanda, Shorepine Vacation Rentals and the award-winning Pelican Brewing Company.
Off the beaten path on a relatively undiscovered stretch of the majestic Oregon Coast, Kiwanda Lodge & Spa features 33 luxury oceanfront suites, a premier fitness spa, and unique restaurant featuring contemporary Northwest cuisine, wine, beer and spirits.
Filling a gap in Oregon recreational destination resorts
“For all the character found in so many Oregon coast towns, there is no luxury hotel that embraces the unique Oregon outdoor culture and encourages guests to immerse themselves in all the natural surroundings and recreational experiences we have to offer,” says Mary Jones, owner/partner. “We’ll offer an unexpected, undiscovered retreat created with active travelers and families in mind.”
The new property joins a unique combination of beachfront cottages, vacation rentals, an inn and the award-winning Pelican Brewing Company—the only oceanfront brewpub on the Oregon Coast. The Nestucca Ridge Family of Companies is an organically-grown collection of coastal businesses dedicated to memory-making beach vacations, meetings and ownership experiences.
“The Kiwanda Lodge & Spa fills a void in our hospitality options here on the Tillamook Coast,” says Nan Devlin, director for Visit Tillamook Coast, the county’s tourism marketing organization. “We frequently get requests from visitors and tour groups wanting an oceanfront experience where they can enjoy the beach, restaurant, spa facilities and recreation in one location. This property is what we’ve been waiting for.”
Cape Kiwanda, in Pacific City, enjoys a storied connection to the ocean, local rivers, beachfront and majestic outdoor playground. The new getaway is poised to offer visitors boundless invigorating recreation including hiking, biking, surfing, fishing, kayaking, beachcombing and more. And for those seeking luxury spa treatments, a fitness regimen, or scintillating work-out, it’s all there.
