Butlins continues its investment programme with the construction of the £25million Wave Hotel at the Bognor Regis Resort. Due to open in spring 2012, Wave will be the resort’s third hotel, joining Shoreline and Ocean Hotel & Spa. Each has its own identity: Shoreline for younger families; Ocean with its Spa and quirky features; and Wave embracing innovative technology as well as offering a combination of hotel rooms and apartments. Wave will consist of 215 bedrooms and 29 apartments spread over eight storeys and most will have balconies and sea views.
Butlins hotel firsts
Butlins has listened to the feedback from its guests and as a result, Wave has been specially designed with the following features:
• The hotel apartments will each have their own lounge and kitchen area
• Bedrooms with separate sleeping areas for parents and kids – giving each generation their own space and privacy
• Inter-connecting rooms available for the first time for families looking for more options
Wave will have a modern and innovative theme throughout designed to appeal to families – particularly those with children aged 8 – 14. Some of the exciting features will include:
• An Amazon Kindle library – so no one will be short of a holiday read or access to the daily news
• An underwater-themed gaming room, housing the latest 3D video games and experiences
• iPod docking stations in all the rooms
• Unique and contemporary design concepts throughout the hotel, bedrooms and apartments
Mike Crowther, Butlins Operations Director says: ‘We’re very excited to announce the launch of Wave Hotel and reveal its fresh and unique design concept. Facilities like the new gaming room and Kindle library are good examples of how Butlins is continually investing and updating its family offering.
‘Customer feedback is so important to us and we have used it to guide us with the development of all aspects of Wave. We firmly believe that the modern, funky design of Wave mixed with the brand new hotel features will further heighten the Butlins family experience for 2012.’
Wave’s wide choice of accommodation will be attractive for families of all shapes and sizes as well as multi-generation families who enjoy holidaying together. The inter-connecting rooms and apartments offer flexibility for families allowing parents and kids their own space while also providing the perfect place to relax together after a busy day.
The other bedrooms provide full size beds in the children’s sleeping area which is closed off by a door with a porthole in it. As a result, the separate sleeping areas are cozy while offering some privacy. Each child’s bunk also has a TV built into it so they can watch different programmes if they wish.
As well as the new and innovative features, Wave will have the familiar special touches that make a Butlins hotel stay so ideal for families. Wave, like the Shoreline and Ocean Hotels, will be centrally located on the Bognor Regis Resort so guests are close to all the action and attractions that bring to life the sparkle of a Butlins stay.
