What’s on your bucket list? Better yet, where would you want to be Earth Day today? Here’s my answer…. The Allison Inn & Spa, located in the heart of Oregon’s wine country and less than one hour drive from downtown Portland, is the only luxury destination resort in the Willamette Valley and one of the few hotels in the world with LEED Gold Certification. The Allison offers 15,000 square feet dedicated to health and wellness, featuring a swimming pool, fitness studio and spa that uses organic and local products in its treatments.

To celebrate Earth Day 2015, the Allison Spa invites guests to join them April 20-23 for a rejuvenating spa experience to receive 15% off any service* of choice as well as a complimentary lavender (placed in a bio-degradable container) cultivated from jory soil. 

In addition to its Spa, key ‘green’ features at the hotel include solar hot water, photo voltaic cells (generating 7% electricity), no usage of plastic bottles on-site, and the installation of sedum ‘green eco-roofing’ on the west wing. The resort also recently enhanced its innovative garden-to-table cuisine by installing a new greenhouse and expanding the on-site garden to 1.5 acres for Executive Chef Sunny Jin’s Oregon wine country cuisine menu at the award-winning JORY restaurant. Chef Jin’s background includes stints at the globally celebrated restaurants The French Laundry, El Bulli, Spain and Tetsuya, Sydney. It doesn’t get any better than this!
