Salishan Resort

Oregon’s craggy Pacific coast is marked by large rock formations, crashing surf, coastal sand dunes, and rows of thriving grape vines. It’s a magical place, notable for its hazy mornings, and crisp, clear sunsets. Seafood abounds, with novices and experienced fisherman alike reaping the plentiful oyster, clam, and mussel harvest. From December through June, herds of giant Humpback whales cruise close to shore on their way to and from their Canadian summer homes. Set amidst this natural glory lies Salishan Spa and Golf Resort, an idyllic hideaway just outside of Salem, dedicated to pampering its fortunate guests.

Salishan Resort offers guests 205 individually decorated guest rooms, each with a gas fireplace and a private balcony overlooking the resort’s 250 mostly wooded acres and the sparkling Siletz Bay. The spacious rooms are equipped with high-speed Internet access, coffee makers with Starbucks coffee, plush bathrobes, and a refrigerator. They provide guests with a casually elegant, yet rustic “home away from home.”

The resort’s Salishan spa, opened in 2005, overlooks the tranquil Siletz Bay and features a varied menu of services, including fireside massages, a seascape wrap, garden herb body rub, and a Pacific sea salt scrub. In addition to the spa facilities, guests can enjoy the scenic eighteen-hole, Scottish links-style golf course, challenging putting course, an outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.

Dining, from casual meals to fine cuisine, is a priority at Salishan, and the food emphasizes the seafood, produce, and fine wines of the Pacific Northwest. Choose the quiet, white linen elegance of the Salishan dining room, the private wine cellar dining room, or The Attic, a fun and casual eatery with high-beamed ceilings and a massive stone fireplace.

Ideal for a romantic getaway or a relaxing family vacation, Salishan’s service is as gracious as its setting. Whether you’re interested in wine tasting, whale watching, fishing, or just relaxing and being pampered, Salishan Resort and Spa delivers.
