Canadian group Fairmont to manage St Andrews Bay resort

Canadian-based group Fairmont Hotels & Resorts is to take over the management of Scotland's St Andrews Bay Golf Resort & Spa.

Fairmont will start managing the 209-bedroom resort at the start of July under a long-term contract. The property will be rebranded as a Fairmont hotel in the autumn.

St Andrews Bay will undergo a £10m refurbishment programme, with renovations including the guest rooms, public areas and meeting rooms as well as technology upgrades.

General manager Stephen Carter said it was good news for the resort. "It's a great opportunity to take the hotel forward and be part of a larger body which is renowned for service and high quality," he said. "Fairmont investing in Scotland underpins the country as the true home of golf."

The news comes as John Williams, Fairmont's executive vice-president of operations, announced that the group plans to double the size of its Fairmont and Raffles brands from 55 properties to 120 in 20 countries within the next five years.
