Completed in 1912 as a home for Walter and Catherine "Kate" Macy Ladd, Natirar is an historic 500-acre estate designed by the noted Boston architect Guy Lowell. At its heart are a Jacobean-style brick manor house, a carriage house, and several outbuildings that command sweeping vistas over Somerset County.
Control of the property was acquired in 2004 by Warren Township businessman Robert Wojtowicz to develop a five-star resort on the property. After a tumultuous ride through the recession of 2007, the project is now underway in partnership with Miraval resorts.
Spread over 14 separate structures on the estate, the design of the Miraval Resort at Natirar sets a tone for the immersion into corporeal and spiritual renewal. The addition and renovation/restoration of the early 20th century Manor House into a 65-suite hotel, lounge and dining room, and 225-seat banquet facility create a lavish retreat and allows guests to share in the sense of history and elegance that is at the estate's core, while absorbing the wellness program offered by the Miraval brand.
