Salamander Resort & Spa Joins Short List of Forbes Five Star Resorts in the DMV


Congratulations to Salamander Resort & Spa on being named to the Forbes Five Star Resort list. Only 210 properties worldwide share this designation, with just two new five star designations this year in the U.S.

“This award is a true testament to the extraordinary dedication our service professionals provide each and every day,” said Reggie Cooper, the resort’s general manager. “We all take immense pride in reflecting our the belief of our founder, Ms. Sheila Johnson, that every guest at Salamander should be welcomed as if they were entering her own home.”

Only a short drive from DC, the 340-acre oasis is one of our favorite staycation spots to truly rest and recharge. Start any stay with a massage in their spa, enjoy the year round heated pools and hot tubs — or venture out into picturesque Middleburg for shopping or tours of local wineries.
