    This is interesting to watch - the video is completely positive press release but the commentary overlaid is that of every changing plans, massive overspending, employee dissatisfaction and no actual building taking place!

    I wonder if this will ever come to fruition? It's a great idea but it does seem like a complete dream right now.

    Los Angeles is finally getting a hotel worthy of its iconic hills. Bulgari Hotels & Resorts just announced its first L.A. location with an opening planned for 2025. Set on 33 acres in Benedict Canyon near Beverly Hills, the property will feature unparalleled views of the hillsides and the city beyond.

    The famous canyons of L.A. are mostly known for conveniently bad cell service (“Mom, mom, I’m heading into the canyon. I’ll have to call you back”) and addresses of the silly-rich and mega-famous. Benedict Canyon has been home to everyone from Roman Polanski to Kim Kardashian.

    But luxury hotels are less common in those residential enclaves. The Bulgari Resort will feature 58 rooms and suites, eight private estates and a signature restaurant. The property will feature a 10,000-square foot spa, a gym, cinema and eight-seat sushi bar. This will be only the second Bulgari resort property in the U.S., following a Miami opening in 2024.
    Details are still emerging but the emphasis will be on ultra-privacy, with discrete bungalows arrayed across the eastern half of the property. Eight resort residences will range in size from 12,000 to 48,000 square feet, each with private land of at least an acre. The largest is set on five acres.
    Although both the Bel-Air Hotel and Beverly Hills Hotel are nearby, the new Bulgari resort is higher up in the canyon, offering (potentially) more of a hideaway feel.

    Bad News for Incheon's Midan City Resort Developement

    The South Korean integrated resort project in Incheon formerly owned by Caesars Entertainment is on the verge of collapse after failing to meet requirements for another extension to its construction deadline, according to local media reports.

    Korean newspaper Kyeongin reported this week that developer R&F Korea (RFKR) will struggle to gain an additional extension on its development timeline beyond March 2023 after failing to meet the conditions imposed on its previous extension. This, the local news outlet said, not only included a commitment by RFKR to increase its total project investment by 5% but also stipulated that construction – stalled since February 2020 – must resume inside the first half of 2022.


    It also reported that RFKR has a different view on how to complete funding for the project than Korea’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, which had previously approved a plan for the entire US$800 million IR to be financed through foreign direct investment. Instead, Kyeongin claims that RFKR now wants to commit only US$500 million with the remaining US$300 million to come from domestic financial institutions.

    An official from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism is quoted as saying, “Once an application for re-extension is received, it will be comprehensively reviewed regarding the conditions stipulated when the first extension were approved … I informed [RFKR] that if a change is made, it may affect the re-extension.”

    Midan City is slated to include a foreigner-only casino, 751 hotel rooms, a theater and a convention space.

    With the demolition of the old cloakroom, the arrival of the Efteling Grand Hotel is one step closer. In the meantime, almost all old buildings and facilities on Dwarrelplein - the square behind the Efteling entrance House of the Five Senses - have been moved or demolished. Last month, La Place restaurant De Vrolijke Noot and an ATM in the form of a safe were already removed .

    This week the building that previously housed the cloakroom and dog kennel disappeared. The cloakroom has temporarily moved to the House of the Five Senses, pending the realization of a new facilities building in the parking lot. A little further on is a relocated toilet block. The dog kennel does not return after 66 years .
    Efteling plans to start work on the foundations for the Efteling Grand Hotel after the summer, a 106-metre wide hotel complex with seven floors, 143 rooms, two restaurants, two souvenir shops, a spa and a swimming pool. Hotel guests will soon look out over the Fairytale Forest and Aquanura. In total, the project will cost 50 million euros.

    LEGOLAND Resort Windsor, UK, have put in a planning application for their indoor adventure golf which is a precursor to expaning to having a full holiday village on site.

    As part of the theme park’s future plans to build a holiday village and the reconfiguration of its car park, planners have lodged an application to build the much-anticipated indoor adventure golf attraction.
    The building has been designed to sit discretely within the park, with good connectivity to both the entrance to the park and the future holiday village. The proposed attraction will have four individually-themed golf courses, including a pirate-themed one.

    The new Adventure Golf Indoor Attraction will be a new secondary ‘support’ ride. It will provide an additional indoor attraction for guests to the park and to the hotel, which is open for additional periods out of season when the main park is closed. The planning statement states: “It will increase the attractiveness of the Park throughout the year and in the future, it will provide an easily accessible indoor attraction for holiday village guests.”

    Does anyone have any recent images of the Marbella resort?
    According to this article it will open early next year but I am not sure which one it is, if it's in these recent photos then it looks nothing like the concept art (see below!) They said before this that it would be ready during Expo 2020...

    Master developer Kleindienst Group is behind the new-build Marbella Hotel Dubai, which is expected to open in the first quarter of 2023. The Spain-based design practice A-cero is leading the property’s architectural design. The six-storey five-star property will house 191 luxurious apartments, ‘fisherman house’ suites and cave suites with each expansive apartment and suite featuring its own viewing deck.

    Atari have been making new noises about the launch of their hotels since they went quiet during 2020. You can read more about the project here... https://atarihotels.com/vision/

    The team behind a new chain of Atari Hotels has hired architecture firm Gensler to bring its vision of video game-inspired hotels to life.

    You'd be forgiven for forgetting about this - 2020 has been A Year and it's hard to remember life before lockdown - but we first revealed the new venture way back in January 2020. Now, however, the agency behind the hotels has posted an update that confirms plans for the chain are still going ahead and shared more concept art on how it envisions the exterior of the hotels will look.

    The first two hotels will be launched in Las Vegas, Nevada and Phoenix, Arizona, with further hotels also planned for Austin, Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, San Jose, and Seattle.

    A waterfront neighbourhood has been unveiled at the Dh10 billion ($2.72bn) Jubail Island project in Abu Dhabi, amid growing demand for new units. Ain Al Maha village, scheduled to be completed in the first quarter of 2025, will include 240 villas built alongside a water channel, with views of the sea and mangroves.
    The wider Jubail Island development, located between Saadiyat Island and Yas Island, will have six residential village estates covering more than 400 hectares and is expected to be home to 10,000 residents within four years. Building heights at Jubail Island will be strictly controlled, with no villa exceeding 15 metres.

    Ninety-five per cent of the infrastructure works at Jubail Island are completed while 40 per cent of the villas are still under construction, JIIC said.

    Toverland in The Netherlands debuted it's first accomodation with a temporary pop-up summer camping experience but they have now filed permits to make a more permenent accomodation structure for the 2024 season.

    Toverland wants to open a holiday resort in 2024 with dozens of permanent accommodations and lodge tents. A spokesperson for the Limburg amusement park confirms this. Looopings was already able to report in March that there were plans to build a permanent residence resort . Today it becomes clear that a permit has recently been applied for.

    The still unnamed resort replaces the Pop-Up Summer Camp, where Toverland visitors can stay overnight in the summer months since 2020. "We have submitted a revision permit application to the municipality of Horst aan de Maas, which states that we would like to add permanent residence recreation to Toverland" , the spokesperson explains.
    This is the current offering https://www.toverland.com/en/summercamp

    Chester Zoo, UK, has submitted plans for a new safari lodge developement to create a resort at the zoo.



    The popular zoo has submitted revised plans after recovering from the pandemic. This time the plans are for 63 lodges of varying style and size, many around the perimeter of a large body of water, plus a restaurant, bar and wildlife pond.

    A new savannah habitat is also proposed which would give guests the opportunity to wake up to see giraffes strolling by their lodge. The new restaurant would seat up to 120 people, for breakfast, lunch or dinner, with the first-floor views overlooking the lake and the giraffe enclosure.


    It is planned for the lodges to be created using sustainable materials and the 'skin' of the buildings would take precedent from the pangolin's body armour of overlapping scales, using timber shingles to create textured natural facades. The savannah-style enclosure would have trees appropriate for the African savannah landscape, sporadically placed, while a denser, greener islands zone would be created to the south of the new site, to provide greater species diversity for wildlife.

    The Surf Village, as it’s dubbed on Sapphire Bay’s website, will be home to the wave pool. One end of the lagoon will house the equipment to generate the waves, while the other end features a beach area for folks to relax and watch the surfing action. Guests will also enjoy three resort-style pools, two swim-up bars, a lazy river, and multiple outdoor beach gathering spaces for relaxation and games. Chaise lounges, day beds, and private cabanas round out the tropical paradise making up the Surf Village.
    What’s different about this development, is the sheer size and scope of the project. Rowlett’s Acting Director of Economic Development Libbey Tucker anticipates the townhomes on the south side to go vertical in Phase I, followed by one of the two condo towers in Phase II. Both north and south properties of the development were designed to hold around 3,000 total residential units.

    Organizers of the EXPO 2025 Osaka, Kansai, Japan plan to charge 6,000 yen ($44) per adult for admission, up 20 percent from its initial estimate, according to sources.

    The Japan Association for the 2025 World Exposition wants the increase to ensure there are sufficient funds to cover the cost of operating the six-month event if visitor numbers do not reach the envisaged target. The association’s initial goal was 28.2 million visitors. But it is in the middle of reviewing the number.
    The association plans to begin selling tickets in July 2023.

    The 6,000 yen ticket will be available for 5,000 yen as a “super early bird rate” until June 2024. After that, it can be purchased for 5,500 yen with the “early bird discount” until April 12, 2025. The price will drop to 3,300 yen during the period after the April 2025 opening until the end of the Golden Week holiday period in early May, when hordes of visitors are not expected.

    Interesting interview with interior designer Paolo Ferrari which includes some information about the Desert Rock Resort which is part of the Red Sea Project.

    Guests enter the site through a hidden valley nestled between the mountains, with public access and guestrooms fully integrated into the landscape, preserving uninterrupted views. As the sole interior designer for the project, we were tasked with creating a highly sensitive and sustainable design for the resort including all guestrooms, public spaces, F&B, spa, and fitness. The design direction was guided by our concept of quiet monumentality, and throughout the project, we prioritized vistas and celebrated the guest’s connection to the site’s sublime and majestic beauty. It’s quite an ask to create a design language for a part of the world where this type of resort has never existed. We were also awarded the project in the summer of 2020 during the height of the pandemic and completed the entire project remotely. Kicking off a project of this ambition and scale, virtually, came with its challenges, but we leaned into the constraints of collaborating remotely and I’m extremely proud of what our team accomplished.
