Experience the ultimate getaway at the Omni Grove Park Inn! Discover Asheville’s most magnificent lodging option – it’s not just a place to sleep, but a vacation destination in itself. From stunning stone fireplaces to a luxurious spa and breathtaking mountain views, the line between paradise and reality becomes blurred at North Carolina’s Omni Grove Park Inn.
Check In and the Stunning Lobby
Check-in and valet parking are a breeze, and as soon as you step into the lobby, you’ll be amazed by the beautiful seating arrangements. But the real anticipation sets in when you see your room. I stayed in the spacious and comfortable 6th floor of the Sammons Wing, but you can choose from plenty of other options in the Vanderbilt Wing.
Trust me, you’ll be amazed at how enormous this place is!
My Omni Grove Park Inn Room
Inside my guest room was a king-sized bed with a Serta mattress, top-notch linens, a flat-screen HDTV, a desk, and a cozy corner seating area. The bathroom features a shower/bath combo, a light-up mirror, and fabulous Nest toiletries. With so many different room types available, you can pick the perfect level of luxury for your stay.
The real showstopper at the Omni Grove Park Inn is the breathtaking views from the balcony overlooking the spa and picturesque mountains. And don’t worry; they still offer pay-per-view movies for your entertainment.
Pro Tip: If you’re traveling with a furry friend, you’ll be happy to know that many rooms in the Vanderbilt Wing are pet-friendly.
The Famous Sunset Terrace
When it comes to dining, the esteemed Sunset Terrace is an absolute must. Indulge in a delectable meal, starting with the must-try poached asparagus with English peas and mushrooms, recommended by our server to my friend and me.
The 5 oz. Miyazaki Beef Ribeye is a steak lover’s dream; which was so tender I could cut it with a fork. The steak’s flavor was unlike any I’d had; I enjoyed my steak with a side of béarnaise sauce and seasonal vegetables.
Save room for the heavenly S’Mores dessert.
Reserve your spot in advance at Sunset Terrace to see the most magical sunset in Asheville and watch the skies go through the colors of the rainbow as the sun goes down.
Other Omni Grove Park Inn Dining Options
Another fantastic dining option is Edison, Craft Ales + Kitchen. This artistic and sophisticated space serves up delicious dishes like Fried Green Tomatoes, Pimento Cheese Toast, Shrimp and Grits, and Scottish Salmon.
For a more casual experience, try Blue Ridge, where a food attendant creates plates of buffet-style menu items just for you. And if you need a quick pick-me-up, The Marketplace offers a great selection of grab-and-go foods, pastries, and coffee.
The Incredible Grove Park Spa
Indulge in relaxation at the world-famous subterranean spa at Omni Grove Park, which has a 43,000-square-foot space. Walk through the Spa Tunnel, where gemstones adorn the cavernous rock walls, and discover a grotto lap pool and ten mineral-based pools that will take your breath away.
Even without experiencing a treatment or tour, you’ll understand why this spa is considered one of the most spectacular in the country.
Though I didn’t have a spa treatment or tour of the facility, I have heard from countless people that this is one of the most spectacular spas in the whole country. This unrivaled indulgence is #1 on my to-do list the next time I visit Asheville. I can’t wait to hear the underwater music in this $50 million facility for myself!
