“We are honored and humbled to receive the prestigious Forbes Travel Guide accolade for the eleventh continuous year,” said Christine Loose, Vice President–Lodging and Wellness for Kohler Co. Hospitality & Real Estate. “This continued recognition reflects our team’s resiliency and constant commitment to providing gracious hospitality, fueling our desire to continue to create meaningful and memorable travel experiences for our guests.”
Once home to immigrants who came to work at the Kohler factory, the iconic American Club was transformed into a world-class travel destination in 1981, offering elevated accommodations outfitted with elegant furnishings and innovative Kohler Co. plumbing products. The historic property also encompasses an expansive wellness program featuring Yoga on the Lake, Bold Cycle and Sports Core Health & Racquet Club; 12 distinct dining establishments; and championship golf courses Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run.
The flagship Kohler Waters Spa is located at Destination Kohler and continues to be recognized as the only Forbes Five-Star rated spa in Wisconsin. The leader in hydrotherapy, the spa leverages Kohler Co.’s innovative showering products and deep understanding of the power of water to offer its guests transformative spa experiences. Its reputation of superb service has allowed the Kohler Waters Spa brand to expand to five locations globally.
The resort’s elegant dining establishment, Immigrant Restaurant, also retained its Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star rating. The Immigrant Restaurant’s intimate setting – designed in six spaces – represents the nationalities of the immigrants who settled in the Village of Kohler (French, Dutch, German, Norman, Danish and English). The contemporary American cuisine with modern European influences is complemented by standout service.
