Woburn Forest will be Center Parcs' fifth UK village and also features 625 forest lodges, a spa, restaurants and retail outlets.
The hotel is set to be launched this spring, but at the moment guests can book short breaks between 20 June 2014 and 27 April 2015.
Close to nature
Rooms at the hotel have been specifically designed to fit with the nature theme that runs through the whole park complex. The bedrooms include mirrors set behind the headboard of the bed which reflect the forest surroundings outside, and the toilet and washing facilities are hidden away behind the bed in an attempt to make the rooms feel more private. A number of the rooms at the hotel come with self-catering facilities so guests are able to make their own meals in their room.
Woburn construction director Don Camilleri said: “I first saw this room design whilst on holiday in the Tyrol Valley in Austria and knew it would be perfect for the new Center Parcs Village. The rooms felt spacious but cosy and celebrated the beautiful setting.
“Like Center Parcs, it’s the connection with the outside that guests want, and every aspect of the room design embodies that. These comfortable and luxurious rooms offer a great opportunity for couples and friends to get closer to nature.”
The hotel has been situated close to key areas in the Center Parcs complex including its Aqua Sana spa and gym as well as the water sports lake. It is also a five minute walk from the Subtropical Swimming Paradise area and guests will also have access to activities such as canoeing, archery, badminton and tree trekking.
Cars are not permitted at the resort, to fit with the theme of getting close to nature, and many of the guests hire bikes to get around, which are available from the Village Cycle Centre. The hotel is 50 minutes from central London and visitors can get there by train from St Pancras before shuttle buses take them to the resort.
Guests will also have access to a number of restaurants and bars around the resort, including The Shearing House restaurant as well as chains such as Starbucks and Café Rouge.
