Sheila C. Johnson, Founder & CEO of Salamander Hotels & Resorts

One of the top hospitality management companies, Salamander manages a diverse and unique collection of resorts; however, they all have one thing in common – a warm welcoming atmosphere.

Salamander Golf Collection, which includes Innisbrook, Reunion and Hammock Beach resorts, stretches across the state of Florida and unites three outstanding golf resorts, nine championship courses, exceptional villa accommodations, luxurious spas and extensive dining venues and event spaces.

August 2013 marked the debut of the company’s highly anticipated flagship, Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg, VA. With an enviable location in a historic 18th Century village 35 minutes from Dulles International Airport, less than an hour from Washington, D.C., and in the heart of Virginia’s horse and wine country, the 168-room resort is one of the most luxurious destination resorts in America.

Salamander's newest addition to the luxury resort collection is Henderson Beach Resort which opens November 18, 2016. Located on nearly 1.5 miles of white powdery sand and emerald-green water in Destin, Florida, the 171-room resort will feature sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico and pristine dunes, as well as a thoughtful, residential design. 

Joining the Salamander collection in Spring 2017 is the NOPSI Hotel, New Orleans. Located in the city’s vibrant Central Business District on the corner of Baronne and Union streets, the nine-story brick building will feature 217 rooms including 74 suites. Originally built in 1927, it will reopen as NOPSI Hotel after a meticulous restoration returns each space to its previous splendor, including the building’s street facades, cast iron rails and stone panels.
