One&Only to make US debut with Moonlight Basin in Big Sky Montana

The resort, opening in 2024, will feature both guest rooms and private residences

Lone Mountain Land Company and Kerzner International Holdings Limited have announced the launch of One&Only Moonlight Basin in Big Sky, Montana – the first One&Only resort and residential community in the United States.

The addition of One&Only Moonlight Basin is part of the strategic growth for the One&Only portfolio, introducing resorts and residences in natural settings and urban centres.

Designed by renowned architect Olson Kundig, One&Only Moonlight Basin will feature 73 guest rooms and suites in the main lodge, 19 villas throughout the resort, a separate ski lodge and a Chenot Spa.

In addition, the resort will introduce the first community of One&Only Private Homes in the US, offering 62 private residences. The free-standing Olson Kundig-designed homes will offer a contemporary design, complete with glass walls to maximise views of Big Sky’s mountain ranges.

Located between the Lone Peak and the Spanish Peaks, the resort will showcase Montana’s mountains and abundant wildlife to visitors, while providing modern amenities in a luxury setting.

One&Only Moonlight Basin will be connected by gondola to Big Sky’s world-class skiing with over 5,800 skiable acres, and will provide access to mountain golf courses.

Less than an hour’s drive from Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport and an hour from Yellowstone National Park, Big Sky is located in the heart of a 3-million-acre national forest, which ultimately joins the 20 million-acre greater Yellowstone ecosystem.

Commenting on the announcement, Kerzner International chief executive officer Philippe Zuber said: “I’m thrilled that we are introducing our first One&Only resort and community of Private Homes in the US.

“Each One&Only resort celebrates their own distinctive location and Big Sky is the perfect site, where guests and residents alike can enjoy the very best of nature year-round through the life and energy of One&Only.

“At Moonlight Basin, Lone Mountain Land Company has built a mountain destination that showcases the natural beauty of Montana’s extensive, dramatic landscapes, and I’m delighted to introduce One&Only in this unrivalled destination.”

Intimate in size, the architectural design of the resort respects the terrain, and minimal impact will be made to the location’s ecosystem during development.

Framing the mountain ranges, the resort will seamlessly integrate into the landscape

Lone Mountain Land Company Managing Director Matt Kidd added: “Moonlight Basin offers one of the most unique mountain experiences in the US. We look forward to working with the One&Only team in Big Sky to bring the unique design and exceptional service standards of One&Only to Montana.”

As with all One&Only properties, the resort will offer innovative programming for families with children while carefully preserving space for adults as well.
