A project to create an extensive £25m new hotel and resort on the Tyram Lakes has edged one step closer to fruition, as further details for the mammoth design emerge.
The Tyram Lakes Hotel, Spa and Resort, in Hatfield near Doncaster, will be a new focused on using the latest ecological and eco-friendly innovations in its designs and is bidding to be the first of its kind in the UK.
The whole resort will be home to 325 luxury eco-lodges set on around 65 acres of lakes and adjacent to 100 acres of woodlands, plus a hotel and spa.
Some of the lodges will be floating structures and other set among the woodlands, ranging from two and three bedrooms as well as a number of larger four bedrooms spaces. Highlights will include rooftop gardens fitted with solar panels fitted, decking areas with sunken spa bath.
The project has attracted the attention of designer Armani, who are involved with the design of a selection of lodges on site, making the Tyram Lakes Resort the first ever Armani development outside the UK.
Another addition will be a planned new boutique hotel designed by Den Architecture in association with Baca Architects. The hotel will feature 104 bedrooms, conference and meeting facilities, a fine dining restaurant with lakeside views, and indoor pool, leisure club, spa, gymnasium, and a wedding and party venue.
The application to build the green resort was approved by Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council in December 2016, commencing with the first phase of 50 eco-lodges constructed from timber and incorporating the latest environmentally-friendly technologies.
Speaking at the time, Daulton Byfield, managing director of Rothgen, the company behind the project, said: “The Tyram Lakes Hotel, Spa & Resort will be the first of its type in the UK. We are planning to invest £25m to create a first class eco holiday village where visitors can relax amongst nature and enjoy a quiet break from hectic modern life.”
