North Atlanta’s Château Élan will reopen on May 21, 2020 following the temporary closure of The Inn and certain resort amenities in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The reopening will happen in phases, with overnight hotel services and most on-site venues, including several restaurants, available starting Memorial Day weekend. The Spa at Château Élan, swimming pools, and some dining venues will reopen shortly after in early June.

During the closure, the resort restructured services and amenities to comply with new state and CDC guidelines for proper social distancing and hygiene.  This comprehensive initiative, Experience Chateau Clean, includes signage directing people to be six feet apart, hygienic seals on guestroom doors, automatic cleaning touch pads, the use of electrostatic disinfectant sprayers and alterations to dining spaces.

“We have taken great care to make the resort and winery environments where our guests can enjoy peace of mind while they relax, play sports and indulge in fine wine and cuisine,” said Neville Erasmus, general manager of Château Élan Winery & Resort, in a statement. “I must congratulate our staff for all of the hard work they are doing behind the scenes to create a seamless guest experience.”

A wide array of activities are offered for guests and daily visitors at Château Élan, which recently completed a $25 million renovation. The Golf Club and Cliff Drysdale Tennis Center, which have remained opened, as well as hiking trails, provide a chance to exercise admist the resort’s 3,500 acres. The winery’s extremely popular wine tastings, in addition to resort cooking classes and other small-scale events continue to be offered as well (online reservations required).
