MDL Marinas’ Ocean Village has recently undergone an extensive redesign. Innovations include new pontoons linked to a £50m luxury spa hotel complex and a floating dock office.
With the delivery of a state-of-the-art floating dock office, which offers a full concierge service, MDL Marinas is able to expand their already high-level of customer service for all guests – especially for those arriving at night – to find their berth via navigational guidance through a large, illuminated screen.
The only five-star hotel in Southampton, MDL members and guests will enjoy the luxury amenities, which include spa treatments, restaurants and gym.
MDL’s head of marketing, Adrien Burnand, commented, “Visitors are immediately encased in a world of luxury, whether they’re accessing the five-star facilities at Harbour Hotel straight from the pontoon, one of the many wonderful restaurants nestled alongside, or checking out new and classic releases at the on-site cinema.”
Ocean Village is the only marina able to accommodate superyachts in the area alongside the yachts, cruisers and racers owned by MDL members who make use of the ever-expanding marina network (over 120 marinas across England, France, Spain and Italy). MDL also has nine marinas on the Solent to explore as part of its Freedom Berthing Package, which allows members to stay in MDL marinas at no additional cost.
“We’re delighted with the transformation of Ocean Village Marina,” Burnand added. “This is a mixed leisure, commercial and residential development, and MDL is delighted to have led the project to such a successful outcome… other work will continue until 2020.”
Ocean Village Marina has also introduced a Platinum Package for all MDL members. This five-star package includes VIP room service, hotel-to-boat wine and champagne delivery, complimentary upgrades on room bookings and use of the gym and spa.
The Platinum Package ties in with the Freedom Berthing package – which offers complimentary stays at more than 120 marinas, free WiFi and fuel at cost – with full membership of the hotel’s spa and gym facilities including hydrotherapy pools, sauna, steam room and relaxation areas.
