US: Eastwind Oliverea Valley is the latest property from Eastwind Hotels, located along Esopus Creek in Ulster County, the Catskills.
Eastwind Oliverea Valley is the group’s first ground-up project and third in the portfolio, joining Eastwind Windham and Eastwind Lake Placid.
The hotel comes with 30 bedrooms all individually designed by Eastwind co-founder and creative director Julija Stoliarova. The freestanding wood A-frame cabins are available in four types, all fitted with queen beds. The hotel rooms come with king beds and varying amenities such as private patios, furnished lofts, vintage desks, rain showers, Pendleton robes and more.
Stoliarova said: “The sentiment of Hygge, the Scandinavian word meaning a sense of contentment and coziness, drove the design of Eastwind Oliverea Valley. Think spacious common areas with large windows for natural light, high ceilings, clean minimalistic lines, and earth tones to complement the surrounding landscape. It’s the vintage furnishings and objets d’art within each of our spaces that are vital to our storytelling and make subtle statements. In curating, I was inspired by the discerning eyes behind a number of female-founded boutiques.”
Dandelion, the property’s full-service restaurant, has been created by Eastwind Hotels’ co-founder Daniel Cipriani. He previously founded and became chef of several Brooklyn restaurants including Urban Rustic, Sea Wolf, Playland Motel, Lodge, and Gemelli. Dandelion will feature a “forage-to-table” menu and select seasonal cocktails.
Additional hotel amenities include a pool, complimentary bikes, yoga, and a schedule of seasonal workshops.
Eastwind Hotels’ co-foundner, Bjorn Boyer, said: “When conceptualising our latest Eastwind instalment, we knew we wanted to offer a true resort experience with an enhanced amenity program that would keep guests engaged during the entirety of their visit. At the Oliverea Valley property, we’ve created more opportunities for guests to gather, lounge, and unwind together.”
