Platinum launch with spa benefits
UK: MDL Marinas has marked the next chapter of its ongoing £3.5 million transformation of Ocean Village Marina, Southampton (above), by launching a new Platinum Package to coincide with the opening of Harbour Hotels’ on-site luxury Southampton Harbour Hotel and Spa.
Ocean Village has undergone an extensive redesign and refurbishment since 2015 as part of a five-year investment strategy which will complete in 2020. The redevelopment includes the opening of new restaurants and bars; ongoing renovation of berthing facilities; and some reconfiguration for much larger yachts.
The Platinum Package, unveiled at the Southampton Boat Show in September, marries MDL’s Freedom Berthing concept – which includes complimentary stays at over 100 marina destinations, free WiFi and fuel at cost – with full membership of the hotel’s spa and gym facilities. An exclusive concierge parking service is also set to be introduced for platinum members with each vessel being allocated a private car parking space.
“Ocean Village embodies our ultimate marina experience, marking a new era for MDL Marinas which champions not just sailing but the plethora of associated leisure opportunities, from wining and dining, to retail therapy and spa days,” says commercial director, Dean Smith.
The 85-bedroom luxury hotel has been designed to resemble a superyacht and is ideally positioned on the edge of the promontory projecting into the marina. Amongst many features, it boasts a spectacular destination rooftop bar and jetty restaurant concept.
