Kingsmill Resort provides a destination to gather together.

 WILLIAMSBURG, VIRGINIA: Several medical studies re­port that couples holding hands for 10 minutes, followed by a 20-second hug, showed greater reductions in blood pres­sure than partners who sat in silence and avoided contact. Clearly, we yearn for interaction.

Management at Kingsmill Resort appreciates the importance of hu­man capital. “We live and breathe hospitality,” smiled Joel Paige, COO at Kingsmill Resort. “We value a higher level of engagement and welcome your arrival. After all, it doesn’t cost more to smile.”

Firing On All Cylinders

Kingsmill’s campus layout is void of crowded hallway corridors or elevator banks. “We aren’t a high-rise where­in only one side of the hotel has a view. The natural light is inspiring and, in itself, a motivation to visit,” continued Paige. “Our vast amenities, from golf to our lazy river and full service marina, are easily accessible on foot. Our di­verse product ranges from single guest rooms to three-bed­room units with full kitchens and wood-burning fireplaces. Our four-bedroom, stand-alone cot­tages alongside the James River are especially popular.

“As the world continues to heal and return to normal­cy, everyone has a different level of comfort. Thus, we have worked hard to establish hybrid events for groups. Options are only limited by imagination and ours is very colorful,” explained Paige. “For example, wedding guests who might prefer to watch the ceremony via Zoom can be sent an advance bottle of wine to enjoy the celebra­tory toast at the reception.”

Gather and Graze

Access is one of Kingsmill Resort’s strongest assets. “Our location is central from most major cities along the East Coast,” said Paige. “While there are many fine resorts to choose from, few offer our combination of golf, river, and proximity to amusement parks [both Busch Gardens and Colonial Williamsburg].

“We can craft programming similar to the reality tele­vision show The Big Break broadcast by the Golf Channel. After challenging yourself on one of our National Audubon Certified golf courses, consider a cannonball contest or paddleboard race along our shoreline.”
