One&Only to Open First US Resort in Big Sky, Montana

One&Only Moonlight Basin will be connected to Big Sky’s world-class ski resort by gondola.

One&Only has long been known for choosing the world’s most inspiring locations to set up camp, including resorts in the Maldives, Malaysia, Rwanda, UAE and Australia. Up until now, however, its elevated take on laidback luxury had not made it stateside – but this is about to change with the launch of One&Only Moonlight Basin, which will be the first One&Only resort in the US.

Slated to open its doors in 2024, the new resort is being built against the backdrop of Montana’s majestic mountainous landscape, with renowned architect Olson Kundig taking the helm on its design. The main lodge will be compromised of just 73 guest rooms and suites, ensuring that One&Only’s signature intimate atmosphere is maintained, with a further 19 private villas dotted throughout the resort.

In another US first, One&Only Moonlight Basis will also be home to the country’s only Chenot Spa. Calling on 50 years’ worth of experience, the Swiss spa company takes a unique approach to health and wellness, incorporating science-led remedies into spiritual programs. Its flagship Chenot Method treatment is world-renowned for its restorative properties and practical approach to overall wellbeing.
