Hyatt Hotels Corporation introduced the Miraval spa and wellness brand to Lenox, Massachusetts, with the opening of Miraval Berkshires. This opening marks the Miraval brand’s third property. Located on the same property, Hyatt also has simultaneously introduced Wyndhurst Manor & Club, a Destination Hotel, with a focus on the Berkshires’ culture and history. Both resorts sit on 380 acres.
Miraval Berkshires’ 100 guestrooms and suites, designed by Clodagh (who also designed the spas at Miraval Arizona and Miraval Austin), are inspired by country house glamour and idyllic New England comfort. Featuring a color palette of warm cranberry, amber, navy, and grayish blues, as well as materials including shirting plaids, woven wools, mattress ticking cottons, and cozy throws, the rooms at Miraval Berkshires evoke memories of sitting fireside. Each guestroom features a Tibetan singing bowl, meditation cushion, and guided meditation channels.
In 1853, Reverend Henry Ward Beecher purchased Blossom Hill, where Wyndhurst Manor now stands. John Sloane, who purchased the property and erected a Tudor mansion in 1893, then commissioned architect Frederick Law Olmsted, who designed New York’s Central Park, to landscape the grounds. In the 20th century, new owner Edward Cranwell operated the property as the Jesuit-run Cranwell Preparatory School before eventually transforming it into Cranwell Resort. To honor the history of the property and the Berkshire region, each guestroom in the mansion is named after a famous New England artist, author or poet, such as Emily Dickinson or Robert Frost.
