After an afternoon dip in the heated saltwater pool, you grab a seat by the fireplace and sip a signature cocktail in The Social Club. Just as you’re twirling the olive at the bottom of your martini glass, a waiter arrives to escort you to your table at Ovation, a modern-American restaurant. Farm-to-table cuisine tempts your tastebuds: will you try the King Crab or the Chicken Milanese?

It might sound like the perfect vacation at a remote resort, but it’s actually an ordinary day at Revel Issaquah.

March 1st was a memorable day for the independent living community — Executive Chef José Rivera prepared his first meal at Ovation, The Social Club was open for cocktails and lighter fare, and the heated saltwater pool and spa welcomed residents for the first time. All three spaces are currently currently set up to enable social distancing in order to follow state guidelines.

“Residents are moving in daily, and it’s so wonderful that their lives can immediately return to normal,” says Heather Barlow, VP of Sales for Revel Issaquah. “Going to dinner, taking an exercise class, enjoying a coffee with friends — we feel so privileged to enjoy these daily activities, especially after the year everyone’s had.”

Revel Issaquah is brand new, but the concept is not. It joins other Revel Communities across the Western US in providing intuitive services and exceptional amenities that nurture genuine connections and vibrant lifestyles.

Community, security and every day luxury

For seniors social distancing at home, the past year has been stressful, exhausting and isolating. But life at Revel Issaquah is easy and social — even with current protocols in place.

“Residents can welcome family and visitors to their apartments. They can even share a meal in either of our two restaurants. We’re so lucky that our community is equipped to nurture those connections in a safe way,” Barlow says.
