Cloudland at McLemore Resort is a destination above the rest. Lookout Mountain’s premier resort and hotel is now open to the public just in time for a summer staycation. Part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, Cloudland is nestled on the brow of Lookout Mountain and boasts 245 rooms. In addition to its unrivaled views, Cloudland offers luxury wellness and dining experiences unlike anything else in the area.

Selah Spa, an immersive relaxation oasis, encourages guests to pause, take a deep breath, rest, and regenerate energies. An occasion for reflection and a reset that engages the mind, body, and soul. Selah’s wellness experiences cannot be defined by expert treatments alone, but also by the sensory journey of relaxation and hydrotherapy lounges. From the moment you arrive and are guided from the spa entrance to the changing room, you will have an opportunity to quiet the mind, find calm, peace, and self-nurturing serenity, and enjoy the immersive experience. Featuring lifestyle staples such as a steam room, sauna, and cold deluge shower, this space was created to experience thermotherapy, a three-step relaxation ritual alternating between hot and cold temperatures followed by a period of rest.

Cloudland also features four diverse dining opportunities: upscale, French Country fusion at Auld Alliance; American fare with a twist at Croft; quick bites and coffee at The Pocket Café; and poolside treats overlooking the cove at Skyside. For an upscale, elevated evening, Auld Alliance is unlike anything the Chattanooga culinary community has seen before. Having a uniquely fascinating story behind the inspiration of their name, the Auld Alliance name was gathered from the native Scottish influence of the grounds the resort currently sits on. 

Enjoy a front-row seat to nature’s masterpiece with a stay in a resort that honors the beauty and legacy of the land that surrounds it. The team at Cloudland believes in exceptional service with thoughtful attention to detail to provide you with one of the world’s most remarkable guest experiences.
