Georgia with a Luxury Twist
The Mandarin Oriental Atlanta and Barnsley Gardens Resort have launched a ‘Town and Country’ package which combines Atlanta city sophistication with Georgian country elegance.
The four-night package begins in Atlanta’s fashionable Buckhead neighbourhood, where travellers will enjoy a complimentary room upgrade at the Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta, welcome signature cocktails, daily breakfast for two and a US$50 credit to use at the spa. Guests will then visit the award-winning Barnsley Gardens Resort in the Georgia countryside. The 3,300 acre resort features a sprawling English village layout with historic ruins, immaculate gardens and charming cottage accommodation. The package includes a welcome bottle of wine, daily breakfast for two and US$100 resort credit toward an activity for two. The package is priced from US$1,689 and valid through to 30 December 2013.
The Mandarin Oriental Atlanta soars 42 stories above the Atlanta skyline and offers sophisticated, residential elegance in its 127 spacious rooms and suites. The sought-after Buckhead location is steps away from the region’s top dining, chic designer boutiques and cultural attractions. The hotel is 35 minutes from Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and 10 minutes from the DeKalb-Peachtree Airport, which accommodates private aircraft. www.mandarinoriental.com/atlanta
