A five-star condo hotel, Treetops Hotel & Spa will be located in an adventure-filled vacation destination. Afan Valley Adventure Resort in South Wales, UK will be built on 485 acres of land and will offer a wide vast range of experience activities in one exciting place. Guests will be able to partake in adventures in any of the park’s five zones including:
- Alpine Zone – Skiing, tobogganing, tubing, ice skating, moguls and tuition
- Extreme Zone – Mountain biking, indoor skydiving, indoor surfing
- Trails Zone – Off roading, go karting, equestrian, cinema
- Forest Zone – Aqua Park, zip wire, canoeing, climbing, and the Bear Grylls Survival Academy
- Zen Zone – Full-service spa facilities, yoga and meditation classes and plunge pools all in a tranquil setting.
Treetops Hotel & Spa will be a two-story, 100-unit hotel that combines the comfort of a mountain ski lodge with the luxurious feel of a modern hotel.
Located in the Zen Zone of the property, Treetops will be the perfect place to relax after a day of invigorating activities. This spa retreat is being designed by one of the world’s most respected spa designers, Heinz Schletterer, and will offer soothing wellness treatments as well as yoga and Zen meditation classes.
Treetops Hotel & Spa will also encompass an infinity pool, fine-dining restaurants, bars, cafés and an open-decked terrace with panoramic views overlooking the scenic Afan Valley.
The units at Treetops have just been released for preconstruction sale. These are boutique double rooms for £100,000, which is approximately $130,000 (price may vary slightly due to exchange rate).
Through a leaseback program, buyers will get a 10% guaranteed annual return. Additionally, they’ll have an opportunity to sell back the unit to the developer after just five years at a 2.5% annual increase.
Additionally, on the first 20 units to sell, rather than paying the full price of $130,000 up front, buyers may elect to pay only £50,000 (approximately $65,000) out of pocket now, and then have the balance of their purchase price paid out of their future returns.
Owners can use their units at the resort two weeks of the year for free. The other weeks the unit will be placed in the rental program to generate revenue.
One of the most exciting components of Afan Resort is the Bear Grylls Survival Academy. Global celebrity survival expert and television action-man, Bear Grylls, will be the resort’s Adventure Ambassador. The popular television action-man will be bringing his years of survival instincts and knowledge to the resort.
The survival academy will be located in the Forest Zone and is expected to be a significant draw for the property. Bear has designed 20 unique challenges complete with tough physical obstacles to negotiate across a variety of terrain, including forests, fields and steep hillsides. Participants will get a hands-on opportunity to learn Bear’s extreme survival techniques.
Afan Valley Adventure Resort is a major development that has attracted a team of some of the world’s most prestigious brands and iconic names to ensure the best facilities and experiences for guests. The resort is expected to employ 1,200 people.
The development of the resort is being overseen by leisure industry visionary Peter Moore OBE, one of the most experienced and respected tourism experts in Great Britain. It was Moore who first introduced Centre Parcs to the UK, 30 years ago. Today Center Parcs is one of the UK’s most popular resort brands and experiences over 95% occupancy year-round.
With planning permission expected to be granted November 2018, the developers intend to be on site of Afan Valley Adventure Resort the first quarter of 2019 to set up pre-construction security and onsite offices. Groundbreaking to follow.
The largest proportion of construction in the entire project is the Treetops Hotel and Central Plaza. Construction is expected to take approximately 18 months from the time they break ground.
