Hong Kong-based company Creation Gem has acquired The Isle of Eriska Hotel, Spa & Island from the Buchanan-Smith family, and have announced “significant investments” in the island resort.
The private island, located off the west coast of Scotland, covers 300 acres and includes a 25 bedroom, five-star hotel with Michelin-starred restaurant, golf course and spa.
The sale to Creative Gem, owned by the Rong family, was agreed in August 2016.
The new investment includes a full renovation of seven of the 25 en-suite bathrooms and a new piano lounge and drawing room, which have been opened up into one space
The changes will be unveiled when the hotel re-opens in February.
New owner, Mr Rong said, “My family and I are honoured to continue as the custodians of such an iconic property and aim to protect and nurture the island.”
General Manager, Gordon Cartwright, added, “A change of ownership doesn’t mean a change in ethos. The Isle of Eriska is synonymous with quality and an intimate guest experience that will be wholly preserved moving forward.”
