The Swag, a 14-room luxury all-inclusive resort nestled amid the Smoky Mountains in Waynesville, is joining Relais & Châteaux, a directory of elite, independently owned hotels and restaurants around the world, including notable destinations like Blackberry Farm, Old Edwards Inn and Spa, and Planters Inn.

“Relais & Châteaux represents the best in hospitality,” said Annie Colquitt, who owns The Swag with her husband, David Colquitt. “We are beyond grateful to be listed among truly outstanding properties that we love.”

The secluded mountain resort joins 580 of the world’s finest properties.

Beyond excellence in hospitality and cuisine, Relais & Châteaux selects properties that exemplify its core values: local focus, humanity, sharing and commitment.

“Relais & Châteaux includes some of the world’s most beautiful properties in the most unique locations,” Annie Colquitt said. “We are proud to share the Southern Appalachian culture and the beauty and tranquility of the Smoky Mountains with the rest of the world.”

The Relais & Châteaux website includes a directory of its properties, along with itineraries, experiences, events and special offers.

“My wife Annie and I always look for Relais & Châteaux properties when planning our adventures,” David Colquitt said. “Our favorite places in the world are in this association, and it is an honor for The Swag to be joining this amazing group.”

The Swag closes for the season Nov. 28 and will reopen April 16, 2021.
