Adventurous Journeys Capital Partners has announced the launch of Marine & Lawn Hotels & Resorts, a new collection of luxury hotels on the east and west coast of Scotland.
Marine & Lawn properties are now accepting bookings for summer 2021, with upcoming openings including Rusacks St Andrews in St Andrews, and the Marine North Berwick in North Berwick, Scotland. Marine Troon will also be open throughout 2021 and will officially join the Marine & Lawn collection in 2022, when its renovations are completed.
“We’re excited to open the first Marine & Lawn properties this summer and provide travellers with distinct, once-in-a-lifetime experiences along the storied coasts of Scotland,” said Ben Weprin, AJ Capital Partners founder and CEO. “Our team has long been enamoured with the rugged beauty of the region and the rich history of Scottish golf, and these properties will sing in celebration of these distinguished traditions. From
avid golfers and bucket list travellers to those looking for a leisurely long weekend, our properties will offer a welcome respite for all.”
AJ Capital has partnered with restaurant developer White Rabbit Projects to launch and run all food and beverage outlets at Rusacks and Marine North Berwick. Each hotel will offer distinct destination dining options. With input from local suppliers throughout Scotland, the range of culinary offerings will encompass restaurant, bar and café concepts as well as a rooftop bar and restaurant at Rusacks St Andrews that will overlook the Old Course and West Sands Beach.
“We’re committed to creating spaces worthy of the destinations they call home,” said Phillip Allen, AJ Capital Partners Chief Development Officer, International Markets. “Each Marine & Lawn property will distinctly balance past with present, providing a level of excellence in service as distinguished as the prestigious golf courses synonymous with the region.”
