Last week (25 January), Fairmont St Andrews revealed details of its extensive refresh at the hotel's Burns Night, held at fellow Fairmont property The Savoy in London.

The multi-million-pound overhaul began on 4 January and will last for 16 months, although the property will remain open between now and the slated completion date in May 2017.

The luxury hotel will be upgrading all public areas, including Kittocks Den bar and the lobby area (below), as well as all suites and bedrooms. The spectacular Atrium (above) will also be redesigned, the highlight of which will be a bespoke lighting chandelier by award-winning artist George Singer.

Set within 520 acres of Fife countryside at the Home of Golf St Andrews, the Fairmont offers 209 rooms and suites, two championship golf courses of its own and a range of high-end dining outlets.

For events, 1,400sqm of space includes the 575sqm Robert Burns Ballroom, with external access; the John Barbour 106 theatre-style Auditorium; and ten further multi-purpose meeting rooms of varying sizes.

There is also a Signature Spa with 12 treatment rooms, indoor pool, sauna, steam room and Jacuzzi.
