THE WOODLANDS, Texas - The Woodlands Resort, a landmark destination spanning an expanse of lush acreage in the heart of The Woodlands, a short drive from IAH airport and 30 miles north of downtown Houston, today becomes the first Curio Collection by Hilton branded resort in Texas. The 402-room, AAA Four Diamond property with 75,000 square feet of indoor meeting and event space – as well as an array of picturesque outdoor function areas – is slated for an extensive program of enhancements projected to begin in Q2. A guest room model is anticipated for a spring unveiling. The entirety of the multi-million-dollar project is being carefully planned to minimize interruptions to the guest experience.
CoralTree Hospitality Group Vice President Scott Spann, who oversees The Woodlands Hotels group, also encompassing Embassy Suites by Hilton The Woodlands at Hughes Landing, said, “Through this exciting partnership with Hilton and Curio Collection, we look forward to expanding our audience and solidifying our spot as one of the top resorts in region and country. Additionally, we’re eager to continue the evolution of this outstanding legacy property with an array of improvements that will elevate the sense of place, functionality, comfort and desirability for corporate and social groups, weddings, plus business and leisure travelers.”
Among the key areas of capital focus are health and wellness, food and beverage, and outdoor events, buoying exemplary existing amenities that range from two championship golf courses, a bike and kayak fleet, and Forest Oasis Lazy River & Waterpark to a world-class tennis center with 21 courts, recently debuted Back Table Kitchen & Bar and direct access to 200+ miles of trails.
The 10,000-square-foot spa will be the beneficiary of a top-to-bottom makeover, including repositioning the spa pool to create a true retreat. As a complement, the fitness facility will be expanded and modernized with state-of-the-art equipment. A new lobby bar with water views, gourmet grab-and-go and specialty market will join upgrades to existing restaurant and bar spaces. Overlooking Lake Harrison, the 3,000-square-foot Forest Deck will be transformed as a truly distinctive alfresco venue for meetings, ceremonies and receptions. A curated art program will tie areas together with dynamic visual interest.
“We are thrilled to have The Woodlands Resort join our growing portfolio of over 100 unique hotels and resorts around the world,” said Jenna Hackett, global brand head, Curio Collection by Hilton. “We look forward to welcoming guests and Hilton Honors members to this premier Texas resort destination, which will offer a host of amenities, services and premium accommodations that are synonymous with the Curio Collection brand.”
