Reviewed 15 May 2014

PROS: The property is beautifully appointed. The surrounding grounds will need a bit of time to mature but provide a very peaceful setting. There are plenty of trails to run or walk. The lawns and gardens are very well maintained.

Rooms are large and spacious and welcoming. The darkening curtains work superbly. The bed was very comfortable. The bathrooms have two sinks, a separate tub and shower with multiple jets. There is plenty of square footage and a separate vanity counter and mirror just outside the bathroom.

Every ounce of food I had during our two and a half day visit was excellent. In some ways, the food may be the thing you remember long after your visit. The chef deserves major kudos.

ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT: The staff is sometimes intrusive. Parts of the place seem overstaffed at this point. This is a tough balance for a leading resort and I expect it to improve as the property finds its stride during its second year.

Also, parts of the bathroom were 75-80% clean but lacked the finish you would expect at a property of this caliber. Again, a small point that should get better as housekeeping becomes more consistent.

My wife and I stayed there after we got married in Annapolis. We stayed there April 26th and 27th and had a wonderful time! First and foremost, the service was incredible!! From check-in to checkout each and every staff member was there to meet our every need. The rooms were very nice and with beautiful décor. We had a great balcony with a wonderful view. They found out that we were newlyweds and a nice bottle of complimentary Champaign was delivered to our room. The food both at both the Gold Cup Wine Bar and Harriman's was fantastic. The steak and crab cakes were delicious and they had a good wine selection. The hotel grounds were beautiful, with wooded trees and they had fire pits outside to sit around and relax in the evening. We saw Michele Obama while we were there too. She was there for a weekend get away with friends. The spa facility was beautiful and we both got a massage and the service was once again impeccable. We also went horseback riding. The stable staff were great and the ride was through the woods on the property. Beautiful views and our guide was fantastic. We will definitely go back to Salamander again!

My husband and I had a wonderful time at this new resort. The room was spotless and very comfortable. It had beautiful linens and soft pillows. We liked our room on the back facing the woods. It had a nice balcony where we could sit and enjoy the woods and weather.
The large living room is beautiful . The choice of furnishings are exquisite. The service in the bar and common rooms was wonderful. We loved Amanda ! She was so personable and took care of us in every request.
The only improvement we could share with management is the service in the main dining room.
It is a higher end resort but we felt worth the money …thanks for the wonderful visit. !!

Thanks to the Team for a great weekend. Ambiance, décor and furnishings all well done. Very impressed with staff how they interacted and acknowledged you in a sincere way while looking at you directly. This was from everyone. Job well done. Dinner at main dining room I expected to be better, but still was fine.

We came to the Salamander by chance. My brother in law had a small wedding ceremony at a near by B&B but due to rain and no indoor option for cake a toasts, we began calling other local establishments to see if there was someplace we could go. The Salamander told us they could easily accommodate our group of 15 and we headed over there. The grounds are beautiful, even in the rain and the rooms inside are amazing. We enjoyed our cake and drinks in the Gold Cup and the staff both in the bar and throughout the hotel are some of the best I have ever come across. Every person we encounter was as helpful and nice as could be. A few of us stayed and ate there and the food was wonderful as well. The hospitality and professionalism of Salamander turned what could have been a small wedding disaster into a beautiful and memorable experience we were all grateful for!!

Salamander Resort & Spa recalls a level of hospitality, service and style that speaks to a one of a kind luxury. Rich in elegant personal touches, thoughtful staff and great programming. We especially enjoyed riding horses through the trails, roasting marshmallows on the outdoor fire, and a great pedicure - ask for christine! well-appointed rooms are ample with otherworldly bedding - great lighting, baths and quiet. most of all everyone was happy - and so nice to have the dog along for the fun. reach out to recreation and spa staff ahead to plan itinerary - lots of excellent programming. easy drive from nyc.
