Alderbrook Resort & Spa Completes Room Upgrades as Part of 2018 Property Refresh

Updated technology, comfort and aesthetic also coming to resort lobby, cottages, restaurant and spa in 2019.

UNION, Wash. – Drawing inspiration from the land, sea and air of the Pacific Northwest region in which it’s situated, Alderbrook Resort & Spa announced today it completed the first phase in a full property enhancement: the refresh of its 77 guest rooms.

Alderbrook has enhanced its guest room experience with a sleeker, lighter and brighter design drawing from the colors in and around the picturesque waters of the Hood Canal. The guest rooms within the main building are now home to updated carpeting, lighting, paint colors, linens, upholstery, entertainment centers, wardrobes, amenity decor and larger, high-resolution TVs.

“Our property has always embraced the natural landscape of the Hood Canal, and we are proud to bring the spirit and character of the region into each guest room,” said Shaun Tucker, general manager at Alderbrook Resort & Spa. “Each small piece – from the books on the shelves to the textiles – reflects our ties to the Olympic Peninsula and mirrors the nature, wildlife and essence of the region, and we look forward to sharing this new look and feel with our guests.”

The property refresh was concepted and executed by GGLO Design, who will continue to enhance the property with upgrades to the 16 private one and two-bedroom guest cottages.

 SOOTHING SELF CARE WITH FULL MOON YOGA
08.16.16
by Michelle Pugh, Owner of Joonbug Yoga & Yoga Instructor at Alderbrook Resort & Spa

The warm Summer sun sets and we pause to take in the deepest breath we have taken all day … then release and let go by emptying our lungs completely. Becoming aware of the whole body as waves softly crash on the shores of Hood Canal we take time to reflect on the previous lunar cycle through a gentle flow yoga practice where everyone is welcome to bring their fullest expression of their authentic self under the twilight of the evening sky. This is full moon yoga! A mindful practice designed to awaken and refresh the body, mind and spirit through breath, movement and relaxation.

Taking time for ourselves is not always convenient yet when we experience a deep cleansing breath we are reminded of how precious that “pause” can be. We can not give from an empty cup. In order to fill what is empty and empty what is full we must develop a consistent self care practice. Just like that warm breath of fresh Summer air, a regular full moon yoga practice can be a soothing time to look forward to each month for gentle reflection and time for renewal.

It is during the full moon lunar cycle that light is shed on what has come to fruition during the previous cycle. Aware of our intentions under the brilliant energy of the full moon we open up to new experiences. This is the time to let go of things that do not serve our highest potential. We may ask ourselves honestly under the light of the moon “how can I be kinder to myself and others” or “what does my heart need today”? This can be a lovely time for self reflection and a healthy reminder to treat ourselves and others with compassion. By letting go of unhealthy patterns we can allow the true essence of our well being shimmer and move ahead gracefully in the celebration of what is to come in the month ahead.

Let the full moon replenish your energy during a mindful yoga practice when the moon is at its fullest expression! Like the full moon, our breath and yoga poses should ebb and flow intuitively with hip and heart opening yoga postures (ie. butterfly, pigeon pose, etc.). Be gentle with yourself during this time by eating healthy, hydrating often and listening to your intuition throughout your practice to receive the full benefits of the evening. To bring closure to the full moon yoga practice, we close our eyes and bathe in the warm Summer breeze, feeling the support of the full moon. Breathe in the intentions set at the beginning of the practice as the moon energizes your entire being with a fresh sense of vitality inside and out. Welcome opportunities for health, abundance and happiness available to us at any given moment under the light of the full moon!

Namaste


Year-round, Michelle teaches a weekly aqua yoga class, every Tuesday, in our saltwater pool as well as a weekly waterfront yoga class, every Friday, on our waterfront checkerboard or pool house, depending on the weather. Every full moon, she also teaches a full moon yoga class on our waterfront.  Yoga classes are complimentary to overnight guests and $10 for non-hotel guests.  All levels of practice are welcome.  Advanced reservations are not required and payment for the class can be made at the hotel’s Front Desk. Please call 360.898.2145 for more information.

Washington’s Alderbrook Resort & Spa Unveils “Creativity on the Canal” Program with Art and Writing Workshops, Exhibits and Experiences
Upcoming activities include portrait workshops, writing retreat and outdoor painting
in a tranquil resort setting for budding and experienced artists alike

Resting on the shores of Hood Canal and framed by the Olympic Mountains, Alderbrook Resort & Spa sits just two hours from west of Seattle and has been frequented by painters, musicians, actors, poets, writers and dancers since its founding more than a century ago. To celebrate the inspirational setting and artistic history, the Resort has launched the Creativity on the Canal program, inviting guests and community members alike to embrace the love of art through workshops, guest experiences and on-site exhibitions that celebrate Northwest beauty.

“In 1924, Hood Canal was heralded as the first non-native artist colony in Washington State,” says Shaun Tucker, General Manager of Alderbrook Resort and Spa. “Creativity on the Canal is a testament to Alderbrook’s roots in arts and culture, and reflects the Resort’s dedication to creative expression. By providing the tools necessary to create, combined with a beautiful backdrop, we hope to inspire our guests to draw, paint, compose and write.”

Alderbrook hosts both local and nationally renowned artists and published authors to facilitate the creative process through fine arts training and workshops. Set in a peaceful resort setting, the workshops encompass a variety of themes and topic such as traditional landscape and still-life painting as well as creative and expository writing. Alderbrook’s Creativity on the Canal upcoming programming includes:
• Art Supplies, available year-round – Alderbrook provides guests with amenities and resources necessary to draw, paint and compose. Shared easels and complimentary art supplies can be found throughout the grounds for guest’s use and guests can find a complimentary sketchbook and drawing pencil upon entering their room or Resort cottage.

• Weekly Art Classes, available year-round – Alderbrook offers weekly complimentary artistic experiences, such as sketching, painting and writing classes throughout the year.
