Salamander Hotels and Resorts, the privately-owned company founded by entrepreneur and philanthropist Sheila C Johnson, is to open a new resort in Virginia, US, in August 2013.

The 168-bedroom Salamander Resort and Spa is being built in the village of Middleburg and will contain a 23,000sq ft (2,137sq m) Salamander Spa with 14 treatment rooms.

Half of the treatment rooms will offer a private outdoor terrace and the other half will house gas fireplace. A couple's suite will boast a private terrace, a whirlpool and a shower.

In addition to the treatment rooms, there will be two treehouse treatment rooms that overlook the surrounding woodlands and a secluded courtyard with infinity edge pool and whirlpool.

The Salamander Spa will also incorporate a 10-station nail and hair salon; locker rooms and waiting areas with whirlpools and water features; and a fitness centre with indoor pool. BluSpas of Whitefish, Montana, is consulting on the spa element.

Elsewhere, Salamander Resort and Spa will include a 110-seat equestrian-themed restaurant and Market Salamander – providing picnic baskets for dining on the resort's 340-acre (138-hectare) grounds.

Construction work is already approximately 65 per cent complete and the resort is aiming to achieve the Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond ratings when open.

Johnson said: "This property has been my passion ever since I set foot on it nearly a decade ago. It is unmatched in ease of access and equestrian heritage, and it promises to be the finest new destination to open on the East Coast in many years."
