The Most Unforgettable Resorts in America, According to Our Travel Experts

Five Reasons to Visit Primland Resort – A Luxurious Virginia Mountaintop Hideaway

"Primland Resort thrives with [the late property owner] Primat’s vision of a ritzy but rugged immersion in nature. At least 45 minutes from the nearest single-stoplight town, the property’s remote location lends itself to Primat’s dream. The hotel’s main lodge, perched atop the mountains, is surrounded by rolling mountains bursting with ways to explore and unwind in nature no matter the season. After I spent a few days basking in the natural wonderland, it became clear that Primland Resort is an ideal getaway for those seeking solace and connection with all of the luxury amenities included to scare away any need to venture out." ~ Paper City, June 2023

Primland Resort Is A Pan-Sensual Immersive Luxury Experience For All Ages

"What’s most special about Primland is its off-the-grid location, which makes it easy to unplug. Many staff are locals and longtime employees who are the historic memory of the place and have stories about the property’s early days. Primland doesn’t just feel remote, it is remote, and the plan to keep most of the 12,000 acres as undeveloped woodlands results in an experience of solitude in nature for guests. It’s luxurious, yes, and Auberge is bringing in even more creature comforts each year, but the magic of Primland is its proximity to wild nature — it’s an immersive offering, rare these days even in the luxury space. My advice? Go, see, do and be." ~ Forbes, March 2023

10 of Golf’s Top Single-Course Destinations

“In the Blue Ridge Mountains and the highlands of Virginia, the Donald Steel-designed course at Primland Resort sits atop high ridges, with dramatic views of surrounding gorges and mountain ranges from its 3,000-foot elevation. There’s a distinctly remote feel to the golf at Primland, a back-to-nature escape that sits on 12,000 acres and features a wellness spa, observatory, and an outdoor activity center. The golf is special but just part of a mix that includes hiking, horseback riding, ATV tours, archery, fly fishing, and more.” – Links Magazine, March 2023

These Vacations Will Make for a Trip the Whole Family Will Love

"You might think this paradise, set on 12,000 acres of Blue Ridge Mountains wilderness, is an adults-only escape. And the property certainly offers plenty in that regard: expertly prepared meals, a fantastic sommelier, a luxurious spa, and myriad outdoor activities. But children of all ages will find plenty to do amid this incredible stretch of wilderness. This summer, Primland will offer youngsters beginning archery classes, family movie nights, s'mores by the outdoor fire pit, board game competitions, putting challenges, and ecological programs with the resort's certified naturalist. One undoubted highlight: stargazing in Primland's fully equipped observatory, which features high-tech Celestron CGE Pro 1400 and CPC 800 telescopes. It's an experience your entire clan will never forget." ~ Oprah Daily, April 2022
