CRESCENT PURCHASES SILICON VALLEY RETREAT – CONVERTING TO NEW CANYON RANCH WELLNESS CONCEPT
FORT WORTH, March 8, 2019 – Crescent Real Estate LLC (Crescent) announced today that it purchased Skylonda Lodge, a 38-room retreat property located in Woodside, Calif. The scenic property sits on 16 acres off Skyline Drive, with 14 guest rooms and 24 additional guest rooms in standalone luxury treehouses nestled in Woodside’s forested hills and only 30 miles from San Franciso and San Jose.
After a significant renovation, the property will open as Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreat – Woodside and will be managed by Canyon Ranch. Canyon Ranch, the integrative wellness industry leader for four decades, is making its initial entrance into California with its first retreat model that offers guests personalized wellness stays with three, four, or seven-day retreats. The property is slated to open this summer.
“This investment is a rare opportunity to acquire an asset that perfectly fits the new Canyon Ranch concept in a thriving market that focuses on wellness,” said Jason Anderson, Co-CEO of Crescent. “With over 7.5 million people in the San Francisco Bay Area/Silicon Valley, we believe the new retreat-focused property will be well received by those in the surrounding area for leisure stays and corporate retreats.”
Canyon Ranch has wellness destination resorts in Tucson, Arizona, and Lenox, Massachusetts as well as spa offerings in world-class hotels and onboard luxury cruise ships. Drawing upon 30 years of successful retreats at the Life Enhancement Center at the flagship resort in Tucson, Ariz., Canyon Ranch Wellness Retreat – Woodside presents wellness seekers with community-driven, introspective, and nature-infused experiences for rejuvenation and restoration, complementing the transformative offerings found at Canyon Ranch Resorts. Guests will enjoy a fully curated program with select, thoughtfully chosen activities, encompassing multiple themes including but not limited to mind-body, joy, culinary, movement and wellness. Outdoor activities will include year-round hiking and biking adventures to nearby world-class trails. A nature trail and a challenging obstacle course are canopied by ancient towering Redwoods.
The 16-acre retreat property, formerly Skylonda Lodge, enveloped by Woodside’s forested hills will be redesigned by Cole Martinez Curtis & Associates. The new aesthetic will embrace the surrounding natural beauty and create connectivity with the outdoors throughout each space. The property features inviting guest rooms, an indoor/outdoor training zone, a boutique spa, sauna, an indoor saline pool and whirlpool, and plenty of opportunities to enjoy the surrounding beauty from the expansive wraparound decks, labyrinth, and grounds. Immersed among the towering Redwoods, with private decks nestled in the forest, luxury treehouses are elevated on stilts so guest rooms ‘retreat to nature.’
