roving that luxury and sustainability can join forces with unprecedented results, Hotel Terra will open in Jackson Hole this winter season. The first in a collection of green hotels launched by the Terra Resort Group, Hotel Terra will offer the exceptional amenities and services expected from boutique hotels, combined with environmentally sustainable building and operating practices.
Green practices include Hotel Terra’s pending LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, which will put it in an elite group of just five LEED-certified hotels in the United States.
The 72 room, six-story Hotel Terra is a condominium hotel property built on a half acre site, slope side to the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, within Bridger Teton National Forest, and at the gateway to Grand Teton National Park. While firmly dedicated to protecting these spectacular natural surroundings, Hotel Terra also possesses the traits of leading boutique hotels: sophisticated design, superior service, thoughtful amenities, and up-to-date technology. This ‘eco-boutique’ approach will drive the hotel collection as it grows, with each new property focused on minimal environmental impact and an extraordinary guest experience. By 2015, Terra Resort Group hopes to create between 12 and 15 Hotel Terra properties in resort locations worldwide.
The design of Hotel Terra is inspired by the stunning natural landscapes of Jackson Hole and its welcoming western sensibility, while also incorporating modern materials, clean lines, and urban touches. Indigenous products in a modern application, such as rough hewn lumber with steel detailing, granite stonework lit by fanciful light fixtures, and a flagstone fireplace set against a wall of deep red leather tiles, demonstrate the fusion of old and new. The property’s atmosphere resonates with health and relaxation, with better air quality, ample natural lighting, and thermal comfort created through environmentally conscious design.
