The Sun Valley Lodge at Sun Valley Resort in Sun Valley, Idaho, closed in September to undergo a new set of renovations and expansions, including a new destination spa, new rooms and suites and upgraded food and beverage service.
Starting this fall, the Lodge will begin the process of redesigning and rebuilding its interiors to offer more spacious rooms, many doubling in size, with fireplaces and modern comforts, as well as expanded bathrooms. The Lodge's signature façade will not be changed.
The redesign will also add a 20,000 square foot destination spa with 15 treatment rooms, as well as steam and sauna, a fitness center, a yoga studio and a selection of wellness treatments. A new outdoor swimming pool and pool café with views of Bald Mountain will be next to the Lodge.

The Lodge's lobby will be expanded to include greater access to the Duchin Lounge and the property's signature restaurant, Gretchen’s. The Lodge's terrace overlooking the ice skating rink and mountains will remain in place.
The Lodge will reopen in 2015. During the renovation and closure, the Sun Valley Inn, cottages, and condominiums, as well as restaurants, retail shops, entertainment venues, and ski mountains will be fully operational.
