KSL Capital Partners has completed the purchase of the historic Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa - located between the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains in North Carolina, US.

Built in 1913, the resort will now be operated by KSL Resorts and will undergo an extensive US$25m (EUR19.4m, £15.6m) renovation as part of its Centennial celebrations next year.

The resort boasts one of the most acclaimed spas in the US, with the 43,000sq ft (3,995sq m) subterranean sanctuary drawing its "aesthetic inspiration" from the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Facilities include 26 indoor treatment rooms; three couples' rooms; three manicure stations; three pedicure thrones; and two outdoor treatment pagodas.

Mineral pools and waterfall pools form part of a 20,000sq ft (1,858sq m) area that includes a range of amenities for guests to use before and after treatments.

Contrast pools; a lap pool; an inhalation room; a sauna; and a eucalyptus-infused steamroom are also among the spa facilities, together with men's and women's relaxation lounges.

Elsewhere at the resort are eight dining outlets, an 18-hole Donald Ross-designed golf course and a 50,000sq ft (4,645sq m) sports complex, as well as expansive meeting space.

Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa becomes the latest to join the KSL Resorts portfolio, which includes La Costa Resort and Spa in California and Barton Creek Resort and Spa in Texas.
