Barnsley Resort Names Diamond Public Relations Agency Of Record


Diamond Public Relations welcomes a fine touch of Southern luxury and hospitality with the addition of Barnsley Resort to its client roster. The bi-coastal agency headquartered in Miami with an office in Los Angeles, will handle all North American public relations efforts on behalf of Barnsley Resort, as the property prepares to unveil its brand new Inn and Georgian Hall in late 2017. 

Situated on the storybook site of an 1840s Southern estate, Barnsley Resort is where history, outdoor adventure and Southern comfort come together as one. Located just 60 miles outside of Atlanta, travelers can bask in this 3,300 acre resort-meets-village playground, where recreational choices include a world-class Fazio-designed golf course, 20-station sporting clays course, bird and predator hunting at the 1,800-acre SpringBank Plantation, and horseback riding along picturesque trails. Promising true Southern hospitality, the property offers numerous amenities, including but not limited to, botanical treatments at The Spa at Barnsley Resort, hiking trails and bicycle rentals, complimentary fishing rods, access to the pool and fitness center, as well as two on-site restaurants and Beer Garden featuring exceptional Southern fare and al fresco dining. 

Currently offering 90 guest rooms and suites within 36 English-inspired cottages, a forthcoming expansion includes the new 55-room Inn at Barnsley Resort and 14,300 sq. ft. Georgian Hall Conference Center, both anticipated to be complete in fall 2017. 

“As we embark on a major expansion and look to reposition this great property, the timing could not be more perfect to join forces with the progressive team at Diamond Public Relations,” said Shawn Jervis, who was appointed General Manager at Barnsley Resort in late 2016. “We have a very eventful year to look forward to, and are confident that Diamond PR’s industry expertise and edgy approach will help us take Barnsley Resort to the next level.”

“Barnsley Resort in itself is a breath of fresh air and such a unique addition to our client roster,” said Jody Diamond, President of Diamond Public Relations. “With a rich, compelling history, activities for literally every kind of traveler, exquisite cuisine and all that’s to come with the new Inn and Georgian Hall, we are eager to tell and build upon the Barnsley Resort story to bring this magnificent property the level of awareness and attention it deserves.” Diamond Public Relations brings more than 35 years of experience to clients.
