Salamander Spa

Salamander Resort Opening in Middleburg, VirginiaIt’s here. After a long wait, Salamander Resort—the pet project of Black Entertainment Television co-founder Sheila Johnson—officially opened its doors with an inauguration ceremony yesterday. Located on 340 acres in Virginia’s horse country, just a short drive from Washington D.C., the resort will quickly become a destination for urbanites from the nation’s capital.

The spa is expansive; its infinity pool surrounded by cabanas, and many of the 14 treatment rooms are equipped with private terraces with fireplaces. There is a Cooking Studio at Harrimans Restaurant, for guests to partake in culinary classes and watch cooking demos. (The famous chef Todd Gray, of Equinox in Washington, is Salamander’s Culinary Director.)

Not to mention the Equestrian Center and 50,000-square-feet of indoor and outdoor venues for weddings and conferences. An added plus: there are over 50 vineyards within an hour’s drive of the resort, for wine tastings in the Virginia Piedmont.
