Timbers Resorts is pleased to present The Sebastian Vail, formerly the Vail Plaza Hotel & Club, in Vail, Colorado. Designated as and a Member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, The Sebastian has officially opened as Vail’s newest boutique hotel and residence club. Centrally located at the gateway to Vail Village, The Sebastian’s location affords the privacy one covets during a vacation, yet remains only steps away from endless adventures on the slopes as well as numerous Vail restaurants, galleries, Vail bars and boutiques.
As the newest Vail boutique resort, The Sebastian unveils luxurious hotel rooms and private residence club accommodations; a new fine dining restaurant, Block 16; destination spa, Bloom; local hot spot, Frost Bar; a gourmet cafe, Market; 8,000 square feet of meeting and conference space; and a Private Residence Club comprised of 36 luxury residences.
“We have been looking for that perfect jewel in Vail, Colorado for many years and we are very excited to have found it here at The Sebastian,” said David A. Burden, CEO & Founder of Timbers Resorts. “We have expanded our brand into hotel and restaurant management so that we can ensure the highest quality of standards and the experience that our owners and guests have come to expect from Timbers Resorts’ properties worldwide.” [member]
Luxury hotelier Michael Oprish, former General Manager of Bernardus Lodge in Carmel, CA, was hired by Timbers Resorts and appointed General Manager of The Sebastian to direct and oversee all daily operations.
As one of the newest Vail hotels, The Sebastian is situated with panoramic Rocky Mountain views. The 100 guestrooms and seven suites within the hotel offer comfortable, private quarters in one of Colorado’s most celebrated towns. All rooms exude contented elegance and are appointed with custom-designed furnishings. Accommodations include welcome refreshments, plush bathrobes, slippers, nightly turndown service, Italian cotton sheets, HDTVs, iHome docking stations and refrigerators.
Inspired by Napa Valley and aptly named Block 16, with “block” referring to the specific lot of vineyard land sourcing the most pristine fruit, the new signature fine dining restaurant at The Sebastian showcases the best of farm-to-table fresh, seasonal, local and organic ingredients. Executive Chef Sergio Howland utilizes the best ingredients from Vail Valley and the surrounding regions to provide diners with a refreshing take on elegantly refined, unpretentious dining at the foot of the mountains. Block 16 will create simply prepared, ingredient-driven dishes thoughtfully paired with an extensive wine program central to the dining experience. The 1000-bottle wine silo will be the focal point of the dining ambiance.
Additionally, the new Frost Bar offers a selection of small bites and throwback cocktails for owners, hotel guests and the Vail community in a contemporary setting. Frost also includes the largest Scotch collection in the mountains. The Library, adjacent to Frost, serves as a welcoming place to gather year-round with elegant artwork and intriguing reads. Market, an artisan deli and provisioner, acts as the source for sundries and to-go items, as well as breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The Private Residence Club is comprised of 36 residences with two different offerings. A four-week membership starts at $310,000 and a Founder’s Club eight-week offering starts at $580,000. Both offerings include membership in Timbers Collection, which is comprised of a host of perks and privileges from travel partners to reciprocity among properties in the Timbers Resorts’ portfolio. Timbers Resorts is enhancing the ownership experience with increased activities ranging from wine tastings to cooking classes to poolside barbecues. [/member]Tags: colorado, David A.
