Château Élan Winery & Resort reopened in Braselton, Georgia, following a $25 million comprehensive renovation. The first major refurbishment since the resort’s inception in the mid-1980s pays homage to the estate’s 16th-century charm, while taking the property into the future. Now, the resort offers 251 brand-new guestrooms and 24 suites, four new food and beverage venues, an immersive spa, pool terrace and new lobby. The winery likewise received a facelift.

“As we complete this renovation, it is clear how every decision was made to positively impact our guest experience,” said Neville Erasmus, general manager, Château Élan Winery & Resort. “We’re beyond proud to bring this vision to life and reintroduce the new Château Élan to our beloved repeat and new guests alike.”

The property’s new design intends to mimic its southern locale while embracing local artistry. Accents throughout range from white Calcutta marble to wrought iron, carved limestone to tufted leather. One of the most dramatic décor pieces in the hotel is a custom, 1,400-piece, hand-blown, Czech glass chandelier.

“After years of planning, we’re humbled to experience the final product that now matches the level of service Château Élan has provided for decades,” said Keith Manning, vice president of asset management, Wheelock Street Capital. “The new design enhances the opportunity to deliver unmatched experiences and to welcome guests of all ages.”
