Fairmont St Andrews.Scotland
特色美食，自然也是豪华酒店蓄力的环节。费尔蒙圣安德鲁斯以当地和应时的原则甄选食材，通过五间各具特色的餐厅，组成最美的舌尖苏格兰。“圣安德鲁斯烧烤餐吧”，位置处于整座酒店的制高点，晚餐时分夕暮景致更是绝佳。La Cucina则以意大利餐独有的亲和气氛招呼着家人和爱侣。早晨到The Squire来一个最全的苏格兰早餐之旅，品尝黑布丁与“哈吉斯”时，你是否会猜到，这里的名字正是著名美国球手Gene Sarazen的外号，为的是纪念他为圣安德鲁斯球道设计提供的帮助？慵懒的午后，可以在大堂的Atrium Lounge，享用由同为费尔蒙集团成员的下午茶品牌The Savoy带来的纯正英伦体验。
酒店拥有The Torrance与The Kittocks两处锦标级高尔夫球场。对于爱好者，仅为在此挥杆，亦值得安排行程。自然造化的空间，开阔的平野丰茂的草地舒缓的丘陵忽而插入峭壁或暗坡的变奏，苏格兰的山与海，既为不断求索竞技境界的球手备足了挑战空间；又敞开怀抱迎接着体验不久的新手，甚至是单纯的漫步者。

Fairmont St Andrews is no doubt the best place to treat yourself and your family to a truly relaxing holiday. The hotel was first opened in 2001, then acquired by FHRI group in 2006 and had the name changed to the present one. Perched on the cliff of the North Sea, the establishment is set within 210 acres of land, overlooking St Andrews Bay. With its grand beauty, this place is truly the landscape for the nobility.
The design concept of the hotel aims for a seamless blending of the ancient time. Authentic castle architecture, double heighted reception lobby and quaint staircases are the first to welcome the guests, in an environ of earthy and green color tones. Velvet wall hangings and upholstery fabrics and leathers of the sofas have been selected from revered Scottish companies. In 2017 Fairmont St Andrews underwent a grandiose interior renovations, and a bespoke artwork was made by artist George Singer, in which, 20,000 discs were individually installed to make “Zephyr” the 60m long swirling ceiling sculpture sweeping through the Atrium, imitating the movement of the water in the North Sea.
