We will offer a wide variety of choices, from gourmet meals paired with world-class wines to curated shops that tantalize the senses. The residences are a true connoisseur’s wonderland that will always continue to be a coveted place to live.added Nakhjavani.
Lake Tahoe is North America’s largest alpine lake recognized globally for its stunning blue water, 72-mile shoreline and renowned ski resorts and terrain. It is no surprise that in 1960, Tahoe was home to the Winter Olympics. Boating, biking, hiking, climbing and golfing are just a taste of what draws athletes and adventurers to this wildly sophisticated locale today.
Meanwhile, Hilton recently announced that its Waldorf Astoria brand will debut in Costa Rica soon.
