Opened in 2013, the Landing Resort & Spa added an upscale boutique sleep with resort-style amenities to South Lake Tahoe. In a plum location overlooking the lake, interiors take inspiration from the mountain setting with stone walls, wood beam ceilings and faux fur fabrics, but there are luxe touches, too, in the velvet chaises, granite countertops and chrome fixtures. All 77 rooms have stone gas fireplaces, 55″ flat-screen TVs, mini fridges and coffee makers. Bathrooms are done up with spa-like touches from the heated tile floors to terry robes and L’Occitane amenities. Corner Garden Rooms lack the gorgeous lake views, but are great for longer stays thanks to an extra 100 square feet of space. On the dining front, Jimmy’s serves gourmet Greek and regional Californian fare in a glam dining room that’s decked out with modern chandeliers and leather chairs. A drink at the custom onyx and granite bar is a highlight of a stay here, as is a pampering treatment in the spa. Or, for alternative indulgence, the outdoor pool is open year-round and there are four fire pits for roasting s’mores or sampling the 2,000-strong wine list under the stars.
In the Area
Catch the Heavenly Gondola up for pristine pistes and stunning Tahoe vistas. Whether you’re snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling, there’s plenty of winter sporting fun to be had off-property in the surrounding Sierra Nevada mountains. When ski season ends, Adventure Peak (9,100 feet) picks up the action with a rock-climbing wall, restaurant and hiking trails galore. South Lake Tahoe is right by the Nevada border, where all the casinos are located. Harrah’s, 10 minutes down the road, is the largest, and it frequently hosts big name entertainers in its South Shore Room.
How to Get There
The Landing has an excellent So. Lake Tahoe location, but be advised that lake view rooms also look onto a travel parking strip full of cars and a wrought iron fence. The restaurant was good, the bar lively. You’re walking distance to the Village and Casinos and the excellent property at Edgewood Country Club. The staff at The Landing could not have been more friendly and helpful.
Researched, but not enough. The finishes and furniture were very nice. Also loved the electric fireplaces in the living room and bedroom. However, we were on the ground floor, and had to look thru parked cars in order to see the lake. Phone was in bedroom so had to run thru the place in order to answer. Thought there would be a telescoping mirror, as this place wasn’t cheap! The restaurant was a disappointment and was under staffed so could not deliver room service. No sundries available for purchase.
Amazing setting overlooking Lake Tahoe, first class staff especially the Valet’s.
Massive bathroom with twin sinks, heated bathroom floor, big Jacuzzi and heated toilet seat!
Heated pool, heated outdoor Jacuzzi and 5 star luxury.
