Savannah, Georgia, is set to welcome the Southeast’s latest jewel, Hotel Bardo, in February 2024. This transformative project by LEFT LANE, a New York City-based real estate development and hospitality firm, breathes new life into a 19th-century Southern Gothic structure at the heart of Forsyth Park. Hotel Bardo Savannah promises to be a timeless urban resort and private club, combining history, modern rebellion, and a vision for a vibrant future.
Hotel Bardo Savannah, with its 149 guest rooms, including 50 suites, introduces a magnetic cultural and social hub. The resort boasts an array of amenities, from the coastal Italian restaurant Saint Bibiana to the holistic fitness and wellness spa Saltgrass. The property also features Camp Bardo, a kids’ program, and Club Bardo, an exclusive membership and social club. LEFT LANE plans to expand the Bardo brand to high-growth secondary markets in the next five years.
Upon entering Hotel Bardo, guests are welcomed by the iconic park-facing front drive and lobby bar, aptly named The Green Room. This living room-style space sets the tone for a luxurious and immersive experience. The resort’s design seamlessly blends old and new, featuring a “riot clash” aesthetic that mixes traditional Southern styles with contemporary expansion.
Hotel Bardo takes pride in its culinary offerings. Saint Bibiana, led by Executive Chef Derek Simcik, offers awe-inspiring dishes using high-integrity ingredients. The debut of weekday breakfast and weekend brunch, along with The Cooking School’s interactive workshops, adds another layer to the culinary experience. Bar Bibi, the cheeky younger sister to Saint Bibiana, serves up Coastal Italian delights by the pool.
The guest rooms and suites at Hotel Bardo Savannah are designed to evoke a unique quality of feeling. Ground floor rooms feature outdoor living spaces with direct pool access, while suites on the upper floors offer park views, private balconies, and chef’s kitchens. The resort’s subtle design sensibility uses natural materials and textures to create warmth and serenity, with linens by Frette and custom amenities by Corpus Naturals.
Saltgrass, the resort’s holistic gym and wellness spa, introduces a range of treatments and fitness options. Director of Fitness & Activities Cameron Scott leads daily bootcamp/HIIT classes, alongside a run club, pilates, and yoga classes hosted by the city’s best instructors. The dedication to wellness extends beyond the spa, with personal training and small group classes offered across the resort grounds and in Forsyth Park.
Club Bardo, Hotel Bardo’s exclusive membership club, offers a sophisticated and stylish experience. Members enjoy access to a private lounge, preferred room rates, priority reservations, and perks like personal training. The club hosts special events, personal shopping services, and a kids’ club, making it a unique offering in Savannah.
Hotel Bardo redefines event spaces with indoor/outdoor opportunities and flexible layouts. The Carriage House, paying homage to the property’s original use, and the Ballroom, opening to The Courtyard, provide unique settings for weddings and events. Private dining rooms and high-design spaces are scattered across the grounds, perfect for intimate gatherings.
