We found relief at Revel Issaquah!!

My family and I recently visited Revel Issaquah as part of our search for the right location for our senior family member. I can say, without reservation, that Revel was a huge, and VERY pleasant surprise for all of us. From the initial greeting/meeting with [name removed], the sumptuous breakfast, the tour of all of the facilities with all of its amenities, and the very surprising affordability, we all left feeling so at ease that we had found the RIGHT place. Revel has given us all a sense of peace that our loved one has found her new home, and most importantly, she is feeling completely relieved and at ease with her decision. We can't thank you enough for the reception and the relief we all feel. Thank you!!... Read more

Revel is exceptional!

My whole family and I have been so impressed with Revel Issaquah! The property and building are amazing and beautiful, with so much to offer its residents. [name removed] has been so kind, patient and thorough and has been a pleasure to work with! We are so grateful that Revel is an option for my Mom, and hope to have her moved in soon! The food at Ovation was delicious and you can really taste the quality and freshness of the ingredients. We were also really impressed with the activity calendar, which is loaded with a wide range of classes and events every day! Highly recommend Revel to anyone looking for a vibrant senior community.

Revel tour

My mom (age 77) and I met with [name removed] at Revel for a tour and some more information. [name removed] is wonderful; informative and helpful but didn't make us feel pressured to make a decision or a commitment. We had a lot of time to tour the facility and grounds and viewed several apartments so we could compare layouts, sizes, and views. He was patient and kind and answered all of our questions, even following up with an email of things to think about and a video of some of the spaces we'd toured. I also like seeing many residents enjoying their space: Some were at the bar having cocktails, many were in the restaurant eating together and in the lobby chatting, etc. There were people in the pool and the movie theater and the salon. It was nice to see a real community of people enjoying their space and time together. I was left with a very positive feeling about the staff and the space.

Wonderful place for mom

We had a wonderful visit with our tour guide 1453260 and found revel to be an excellent option with a great amount of engaging activities for my mother. There were some nice options, like stays at their sister properties included in rent. Revel reminded me a bit of a stay at suncadia rather than a senior community. It is absolutely worth checking out.

After visiting many senior living facilities, it was refreshing to see uniqueness in Revel' living. I was impressed with the unusual meal plan, the transportation services, and the travel club as well as the friendly environment and beautiful building. Special thanks to the sales manager for the excellent tour, kindness in personalizing the tour while responding to our specific questions and following up with a video of the apartment we are considering.

Tour

This is my first visit to an independent senior living facility. As I entered revel, it felt very welcoming. Our guide (soft spoken & non -pressure) gave enlightening tour of Revel with all the wonderful amenities making it to be very favorable, living accommodations.. My daughter, and I enjoyed a top top notch lunch. We were also able to chat with some of the residents that expressed how enjoyable it was to be there I would also like to add that you could never get bored with all the various amenities and activities.

Staycation

My wife and I have been exploring senior living options in our area and Revel stood out! We were invited to experience Revel-life as a Staycation for two nights by the Sales Manger. He spectacularly arranged a most splendid Staycation. We had opportunity to meet the "Ambassadors" as well as many others, and to enjoy the restaurant and other amenities. The guest suite was well furnished and stocked with goodies. Perhaps the most valuable benefit for us was to have ample time to explore several floor plan options and to picture ourselves as residents there. We were persuaded for these and other reasons to go ahead and make a deposit! Now we are eager to make the picture permanent!

Resort/Retreat Vibe - Independent Senior Living at its Best

After several independent/assisted living homes tours in the area with my mom, I think we finally scored. My mom has been a bit resistant to making the jump into senior living, because who really wants to make that move when you are still feeling young & capable. I believe Revel is exactly what she is looking for. She left the community with smiles (&hugs), visualizing herself there soon. In fact, I said I am moving in too in about 10 years. Our tour guide, was super kind, caring, humorous, knowledgeable & we really felt like he listened to us, & understood that this would be a big move for my mom. We met some of the residents in the community, who had nothing but wonderful things to say about Revel. We had an amazing lunch, & we felt so comfortable & relaxed that we just wanted to stay & hang out. Say goodbye to the traditional 'old folks' home & hello to an active resort community, that encourages seniors to keep living their best lives, & providing an inviting place for visitors.

A very welcoming 1st visit to Revel

I recently toured Revel as a home for my parents. From the moment I walked in the lobby I was made to feel Revel is a very welcoming environment. [name removed], my “tour guide” was exceptional knowledgeable and addressed all of questions which were, admittedly, a lot. The facility is like visiting a high end resort. Alll the amenities including 2 restaurants, a large pool and hot tub, fitness room, theater, private dining room, artist studio, outdoor spaces. I was really impressed with the facility and the people I met there. I would feel very good with my folks there.

Great Senior Community

My sister and I took a tour of Revel Issaquah and were pleasantly surprised at the senior community there. We had lunch there and the food was delicious and the menu had a lot to choose from. There are lots of amenities to take advantage of and friendly residents who came up and talked with us. The whole complex is well taken care of as are the units we were shown. Our host was very friendly and knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. We were very impressed!

Super Friendly Community!

In our search for a retirement community, we toured Revel - and were delighted by our entire experience! What was so different? The community spaces were fabulous, designed to feel so light and spacious, even on the gray, rainy day we had. The amenities were amazing, as were the examples of activities its residents could routinely enjoy. The floor plans were great; focused on maximizing space while again allowing light to flood in. The pricing strategy, so different than others, intrigued and pleased us. What do we remember most? We have toured humongous complexes and been amazed at how far one would have to walk when facing decreased mobility! Revel, with a smaller footprint, is much more senior friendly. But it was the people! While dining in the dining room, we met a resident who had lived oversees and learned we had mutual friends. Another resident stopped to welcome us and chat. One couple simply joined as at our table! Revel is an intimate community with real "community".

Excellent community for Independent Living!

I have been researching communities for my parents and Revel is at the top of my list to share with them. Great amenities and great value for what is offered! So many places that I visited felt too dated, and Revel has a fresh appearance with lots of natural light. The salt water pool is a real bonus for my parents and the fitness room is top notch! The social calendars highlight so many outings to enjoy local places of interest. Mom and Dad can explore King County as if they are vacationing! Apartments are spacious and well planned with much more storage than other communities I visited. The food was delicious! I like that you can eat in multiple environments as well as enjoy meals in your room. The Lyft benefits are a plus + and allow great autonomy and flexibility for residents. The Travel program is also an alluring benefit; who wouldn’t want to visit other cities and feel right at home? The staff is very friendly and my tour guide was welcoming and so informative.
