Trump Turnberry opens its doors

Trump Turnberry, a Luxury Collection Resort, has reopened its doors to guests after a multimillion pound, eight-month restoration.  
Coupled with the incredible renovation of Turnberry’s legendary Ailsa Championship golf course, the resort is one of the most opulent luxury retreats in the world.  
The main hotel building, which has been under construction since September, has been renovated and includes the magnificent remodelling of all guest rooms and suites plus the hotel’s bars and restaurants.  


Furthermore, the iconic Turnberry Lighthouse has been fully restored and converted into a spectacular, £3,500-per night two bedroom, presidential suite. Elegant in its décor and grand in its aura, the Turnberry Lighthouse Suite offers breathtaking views and a uniquely exclusive guest experience.  

A ceremonial ribbon cutting of the property will take place at the hotel later this month, on the 24th June, which will officially commemorate the new chapter in this hotel’s illustrious 110 year history.  

As an iconic golfing destination, Turnberry has hosted four of the most exciting Open Championships. Through the years, Turnberry has also accommodated some of the most influential people in modern history, served the United Kingdom through two World Wars and was the birthplace of Robert the Bruce.  

Trump Turnberry will be managed by Ralph Porciani, a veteran hotelier of the UK hospitality industry, having held positions within the Four Seasons Regent Hotel (now the Landmark), The Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park and the prestigious Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane.  

Ralph Porciani commented: “We have always known that the newly renovated Trump Turnberry would be among the finest hotels anywhere in the world. The Trump Organisation has spared no expense – it is a genuine masterpiece.  

“Guests can expect an opulent and very private experience at Trump Turnberry, which is hidden away in a richly historic landscape with breathtaking views. No request will be too great, and no detail too small.”  

The hotel refurbishment has consisted of the upgrade of 103 guest rooms, including four magnificent suites. Additionally, included in this iconic renovation is The Grand Tea Lounge & Bar, The Duel in the Sun restaurant and the introduction of a new Italian cuisine concept, Il Tramonto, within the hotel’s signature 1906 restaurant. Coming in August 2016 is the Donald J. Trump Ballroom, a 500 person grand ballroom, which will be the most luxurious meeting facility anywhere in Europe.  

Porciani added: “Trump Turnberry sets a new standard for luxury and service. During the refurbishment, every detail has been scrutinised to ensure that we deliver an experience of the highest calibre, which will attract guests from every corner of the globe.  

“One of the most distinctive and impressive assets we have to offer is our staff. The team that we have in place to welcome our guests are trained to deliver the very highest quality of service and cuisine across the resort.”  

A range of experiences are available for guests, including exhilarating outdoor pursuits within the onsite Turnberry Adventures facility and The Spa at Turnberry. The resort is a convenient 25 miles (20 minutes) from Glasgow Prestwick Airport, 55 miles (one hour) from Glasgow Airport and 100 miles (one hour and thirty minutes) from Edinburgh Airport.
