Sunriver Resort, A Destination Hotel, Splashes into 2015 with a New Aquatic Facility and Expanded Dining Options

Already a popular vacation destination for nearly 50 years, the Central Oregon resort is set to charm guests for years to come with a new outdoor pool and four new restaurants.

Sunriver, Ore. – Feb. 25, 2015 – Sunriver Resort, A Destination Hotel, invites both new and returning guests to come back and (re)discover all the property has to offer with the announcement of a dining and outdoor pool transformation. Part of a $50 million property revitalization taking place over a five year period and slated to open in May of this year, the project includes a revamped and remodeled restaurant, lobby bar and tavern, as well as a new pool facility with a café and bar.

“Our goal is to create experiences where guests can relax and gather for Pacific Northwest-inspired food and drinks while enjoying Sunriver Resort’s one-of-a-kind setting,” said Tom O’Shea, Sunriver Resort’s managing director. “From relaxing poolside, to kicking back after a day of golf, or simply enjoying a meal with family, there is a unique experience awaiting every guest.”

Adding to the Resort’s already stellar amenities, including 63 holes of award-winning golf, rejuvenating Sage Springs Spa & Club, pristine outdoor tennis courts, seasonal fun-in-the-sun at the marina and more, the new restaurants and outdoor pool offer guests even more opportunities to personalize their visit and explore all the Northwest has to offer.

This major transformation will include the following:

  • Carson’s American Kitchen will embrace the flavors of the region with an extensive menu created by Executive Chef Travis Taylor with tantalizing offerings to suit every taste. This family-friendly restaurant is perfect for all occasions, featuring a display kitchen, casual atmosphere and memorable dishes with local ingredients. Carson’s American Kitchen is named after famous explorer Kit Carson, who was purported to have camped on the Sunriver Meadow during his exploration of the Oregon Trail.
  • Twisted River Tavern offers a twist on classic bar favorites including shareable noshes and local beer, wine and cocktails by the glass. With elevated tavern fare served all day long with live music in the evenings, Twisted River will be a guest favorite for a tradition of fun get-togethers among friends.
  • The Living Room at the lodge, with its open and inviting space, will feature artisan Central Oregon-inspired small bites, regional wines on tap, bottled beer and a selection of after-dinner spirits. The new lobby bar is designed to offer guests a place to relax, gather before dinner for a quick drink and provide a central hub for the Resort’s endless activities and happenings. 
  • The new swimming and outdoor recreation facility, known as "The Cove," will feature a giant zero-entry pool and hot tub, private cabanas, a waterslide, nature discovery area, lakeside trails and a spacious deck and lawn. The Cove will blend outdoor recreation with a mix of comfort and family fun. Additionally, The Spotted Frog will serve poolside beverages and fare. The restaurant’s name is a nod to the endangered Oregon Spotted Frog, who will have a protected habitat at The Cove’s nature discovery area.

“Within the natural beauty of Central Oregon, Sunriver Resort inspires our guests to explore, discover and reflect,” said O’Shea. “With the introduction of our new restaurant, tavern, lobby bar and pool facility, Sunriver Resort is proud to deliver on its transformative vision and commitment to offer unforgettable memories that keep guests coming back year after year.”
