The American Club Stands as the Only Forbes Five-Star Rated Resort-Hotel in Wisconsin; The Immigrant Restaurant Receives Four Star
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; 15 distinct dining establishments; and championship golf courses Whistling Straits and Blackwolf Run. In September, Whistling Straits will become the first public course since 1991 to host the coveted 2020 Ryder Cup.
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, with the most recent opening in Lincoln Park, Chicago.
Forbes Travel Guide also awarded the resort’s elegant dining establishment, the Immigrant Restaurant, with its 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.
