We are proud to announce the distinct honor and international recognition by Relais & Châteaux, a collection of the finest hotels and gourmet restaurants in the world. At the 36th International Relais & Châteaux Congress in Capetown, South Africa, Westglow Resort & Spa was inducted as a new member of this elite association. Relais & Châteaux was established in France in 1954 with the mission to spread its unique art de vivre across the globe by selecting outstanding properties with a truly unique character. There are currently 475 Relais & Châteaux properties in 55 countries, including 36 in the United States. We are in very good company in our region with the Inn at Little Washington, Blackberry Farm and the Fearrington House.
Relais & Châteaux is also known for its tradition of “la Route du Bonheur” or “Road to Happiness.” In 1954, five unique small properties in France banded together to create a touring route from Paris to Nice called the Route du Bonheur. Guests were welcomed to each unique and special property in turn as they traveled south. As guests experienced the quality and service these properties offered, the Relais and Châteaux association began to grow. Today, Relais & Châteaux is an exclusive collection of the finest hotels and gourmet restaurants, including Westglow Resort & Spa!
The Relais & Châteaux signature reflects this ambition: “ALL AROUND THE WORLD, UNIQUE IN THE WORLD.” Relais & Châteaux properties can be found all over the world. To explore all the Relais & Châteaux members worldwide, visit their website.
