GIA were asked to look at a holiday park pool and enhance the customer experience for the existing caravan owners and prospective holiday makers.
The swimming pool facility and water attractions needed to offer increased bather capacity and customer enjoyment. This would accommodate a growing customer demand that was predominately geared to families and grandparents with young children.
GIA took the existing indoor pool facility with its poolside changing and utilized the redundant external south facing rear area. This together with some of the poor performing internal retail area provided a footprint capable of accommodating a new facility to meet the client’s aspirations
GIA’s solution provided an increased reception area with more seating and direct views into the pool hall. This meant that non swimming family members could enjoy seeing their families at play. New spacious light and airy changing facilities were provided to access the new facilities
The current indoor pool area was refurbished to facilitate more activities. These could be group sessions i.e. pool kayaking etc as it could now provide a constant depth
Added to the facility was an outdoor heated lazy river with a spa area set within the hillside to create an amphitheatre of activities and experiences.
These were all set within low maintenance gardens of palms, bamboos and artificial grass so that it looks attractive from the start to the end of the season
The provision of a large glazed south wall and electronic sliding glazed doors allow both internal and external areas of the holiday park to be visual linked. They also allow the smooth transition of bathers between the two experiences.
