THE WOODLANDS, Texas – The Woodlands Resort, just north of Houston, will soon become the first Curio Collection by Hilton branded resort in Texas.
Along with its January 4, 2022, transition to the portfolio, the 402-room, AAA Four Diamond property with 75,000 square feet of indoor meeting and event space–as well as an array of picturesque outdoor function areas–is slated for an extensive program of upgrades projected to begin in the second quarter of 2022.
“Through this exciting partnership with Hilton and Curio Collection, we look forward to expanding our audience and solidifying our spot as one of the top resorts in the region and country,” said CoralTree Hospitality Group vice president Scott Spann, who oversees The Woodlands Hotels group, also encompassing The Westin at The Woodlands and Embassy Suites by Hilton The Woodlands at Hughes Landing. “Additionally, we’re eager to continue the evolution of this outstanding legacy property with an array of improvements that will elevate the sense of place, functionality, comfort, and desirability for corporate and social groups, weddings, plus business and leisure travelers.”
A key focus of the upgrade is to attract health and wellness, food and beverage, and outdoor events. Resort officials also plan to add more amenities to its existing offerings, which include two championship golf courses, the Forest Oasis Lazy River & Waterpark, a world-class tennis center with 21 courts, and access to more than 200 miles of trails.
The 10,000-square-foot spa will be the beneficiary of a top-to-bottom makeover, including repositioning the spa pool. As a complement, the fitness facility will be expanded and modernized with state-of-the-art equipment. A new lobby bar with water views, gourmet grab-and-go, and specialty market will join upgrades to existing restaurant and bar spaces. Overlooking Lake Harrison, the 3,000-square-foot Forest Deck will be transformed into a venue for meetings, ceremonies, and receptions. A curated art program will tie areas together with visual interest.
“We are thrilled to have The Woodlands Resort join our growing portfolio of over 100 unique hotels and resorts around the world,” said Jenna Hackett, global brand head, Curio Collection by Hilton. “We look forward to welcoming guests and Hilton Honors members to this premier Texas resort destination, which will offer a host of amenities, services, and premium accommodations that are synonymous with the Curio Collection brand.”
