SEATTLE, Aug. 19, 2021 – JLL’s Hotels & Hospitality Group announced today that it arranged the sale of Suncadia, a resort community with hotel and residential accommodations encompassing close to 6,400 acres of pristine land in Cle Elum, Washington.

JLL represented the seller, funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management, L.P.

The resort features an array of amenities and facilities including the 254-room Lodge at Suncadia, the 18-room Inn at Suncadia, five food and beverage outlets, multiple event spaces and meeting rooms, a swim club and fitness center, and spa and wellness center. The resort also features three award-winning mountain golf courses: the 7,100-yard, 18-hole Prospector Golf Course, the 7,300-yard, 18-hole Rope Rider Golf Course, as well as the exclusive, private Tumble Creek Golf Course.
