Hotels afford travelers all the comforts of home without the hassle of transporting houses on flatbed trucks or having to make your own bed. Enjoy stress-free comfort with today’s Groupon: for $129, you get a one-night stay in a traditional room, a $25 dining credit, and a glass float keepsake at Salishan Spa & Golf Resort in Gleneden Beach (a $259 value). Guests may buy up to three Groupons to extend stays.
The Salishan Spa & Golf Resort's traditional rooms pamper overnighters with forest or golf-course views, Gilcrest and Solmes bath products, and your choice of a king-size bed or two doubles. After a dip in the pool, guests can return to their rooms to slip into robes and bask in the glow of high-speed wireless Internet. Guests can also redeem a $25 dining credit at one of five resort restaurants and lounges. Diners at the signature Prime Steakhouse can gulp down eyefuls of Siletz Bay while diving fork-first into 12-ounce New York strip steaks ($36) or fish and chips ($17). In addition to the overnight stay, guests will receive an ornamental glass float keepsake that can float inside bathtubs, small ponds, and very large cups of iced tea.
Though not included in today’s deal, guests can play golf on the resort’s 18-hole course, surrounded with views of the ocean and Siletz Bay. The resort also boasts a bevy of shops and a spa that offers massages, facials, and other rejuvenating treatments, and the Gleneden Beach area keeps coastal adventurers busy with an array of nearby attractions, including aquariums, deep-sea fishing, and a regularly setting sun.
Frommer's highly recommends Salishan Spa & Golf Resort with a perfect three-out-of-three exceptional rating. Five Yelpers give the resort a perfect five-star average, and TripAdvisors give it an average of 3.5 owl eyes.
Salishan Spa & Golf Resort
Situated on 250 acres between Siletz Bay to the north and the great expanse of the Pacific Ocean to the west, Salishan Spa & Golf Resort welcomes visitors into a serene coastal environment surrounded by virgin forest and picturesque highlands. The resort has granted guests a wealth of diversions since opening in 1965, including a par-71 golf course redesigned by PGA professional and native Oregonian Peter Jacobsen. The course’s bent-grass fairways hug the hills that dot the coastline, yielding panoramic vistas of the Pacific on the front nine and the bay along the links-style back nine. Though challenging, three sets of tees per hole make the course enjoyable for every golfer and greatly increase an individual’s chances of making an ocean-in-one.
After a round, players can rest tuckered-out tendons in the spa, where saunas, rain showers, and whirlpools ease the physical self and a rustic-chic aesthetic works on spiritual clarity. Natural stone walls and tree-branch arrangements blur the boundaries between indoors and outdoors, and antler chandeliers present numerous options for hanging golf bags.
