DENVER—CoralTree Hospitality, an independent hospitality management company, added Suncadia Resort in Cle Elum, Washington to its portfolio. Located 80 miles east of Seattle, the year-round resort community is situated amidst a 6,000 acre landscaped with more than 40 miles of hiking and biking trails, two golf courses, a spa, an inn, the Lodge, residential vacation rental accommodations, real estate, and more. CoralTree has been the asset manager of the resort and now will manage Suncadia as a franchise under the Destination by Hyatt brand.
“Suncadia has always been a part of our family,” said Tom Luersen, president of CoralTree. “Our parent company Lowe has been involved since its inception in the early 2000s. We are excited to continue our affiliation with Hyatt through the franchise of the Destination brand for the resort and grow our involvement to now oversee all management of the award-winning destination. Suncadia has transformed the Cle Elum area over the last 20 years and we are looking forward to ushering the resort into its next chapter.”
