£200 million investment sets Turnberry resort apart as an opulent masterpiece
TURNBERRY, SCOTLAND – April 19, 2016: Trump Turnberry, a Luxury Collection Resort, will officially open its doors to guests on 1st June 2016. Set along a richly historic landscape and coupled with the incredible renovation of Turnberry’s legendary Ailsa Championship golf course, the resort now takes its position as one of the most opulent luxury retreats in the world.
This multimillion pound renovation involves every facet of the 800 acre property, from the magnificent remodeling of all guest rooms and suites to the new state-of-the-art grand ballroom, world-class restaurants, the restoration of the iconic Turnberry Lighthouse, the Turnberry Golf Academy and much more. The grand re-opening of Trump Turnberry marks a new chapter in the hotel’s illustrious 110 year history, which has hosted four of the most exciting Open Championships. Through the years, Turnberry has also housed some of the most influential people in modern history, served the United Kingdom through two World Wars and was the birthplace of Robert the Bruce, King and Founder of Scotland in 1307.
Leading the renovation alongside his father, Eric Trump commented, “When we bought this magnificent property in 2014, we knew that the newly renovated Trump Turnberry would be among the finest resorts anywhere in the world. We have spared no expense and are thrilled with the masterpiece that will soon re-open its doors to our members and guests alike. We could not be more proud of the end result — Turnberry now shines brighter than ever before.”
Trump Turnberry, located along the majestic Ayrshire coastline, consists of 206 state-of-the-art guest rooms, including four magnificent suites (named after Tom Watson, Nick Price, Stewart Cink and Greg Norman, past winners of the prestigious Open Championships hosted at Turnberry). Additionally, included in this iconic renovation is The Grand Tea Lounge & Bar, The Duel in the Sun restaurant and 1906 restaurant, as well as the creation of the Donald J. Trump Ballroom, a 500 person grand ballroom, which will be the most luxurious meeting facility anywhere in Europe.
Adding to this substantial list of enhancements is the full restoration of the historic Turnberry Lighthouse, which for over a century has acted as an iconic image of Scotland and beautiful Scottish golf. The Turnberry Lighthouse, which will open in conjunction with the hotel, has been transformed into the finest halfway house in the world, creating an experience that is truly unrivaled.
Additionally, the lighthouse will offer the United Kingdom’s most spectacular two-bedroom presidential suite, which will be priced starting at over £3,500 per night. Elegant in its décor and grand in its aura, the Turnberry Lighthouse, overlooking the Firth of Clyde, offers breathtaking views across to the Isle of Arran, the famous Ailsa Craig and beyond.
Commenting on the opening, Ralph Porciani, General Manager, said: “Trump Turnberry sets a new standard for luxury and service beyond that which is currently available elsewhere. During the refurbishment, every detail has been scrutinised to ensure that we deliver an experience of the highest calibre, which will attract guests from every corner of the globe.
“One of the most distinctive and impressive assets that Turnberry has to offer, that is often commented upon, is our staff. The team that we have in place to welcome our guests are highly trained to deliver the very best in terms of quality of service and cuisine across the resort.
“We are bringing back experienced staff who have worked within the property for decades as well as hiring new talent to bring new ideas and fresh life to everything we do. This is the perfect combination for Trump Turnberry to be best placed to offer our guests a truly memorable experience.”
A range of experiences are available for guests, including exhilarating outdoor pursuits within the onsite Turnberry Adventures facility and The Spa at Turnberry. The resort is a convenient 25 miles (20 minutes) from Glasgow Prestwick Airport, 55 miles (one hour) from Glasgow Airport and 100 miles (one hour and thirty minutes) from Edinburgh Airport.
