MDL Marinas, Europe’s leading marina operator, last year unveiled its stunning new member facilities at Port Hamble Marina and marked the occasion with a luxurious pamper event for visitors to enjoy. Celebrating the opening of the transformed space, MDL invited members and guests to receive complimentary spa treatments within the facilities to reveal the new offering.
The redevelopment includes beautifully designed changing facilities, as well as an exclusive members’ area, featuring private dressing and shower rooms. The significant £500,000 investment commenced in October 2016 and followed detailed member feedback, which helped identify the services which would be of most benefit to further enhance the marina experience.
Nic Parton, MDL Port Hamble Marina Manager, said: “We are very excited to officially open our new facilities at Port Hamble Marina and the feedback we’ve already received has been outstanding. Providing an unrivalled marina experience which puts our members at the heart of our services is our ultimate goal, so what better way to celebrate the opening than inviting guests to receive complementary massages and treatments, helping them to unwind and relax before heading out for a day on the water.”
The marina’s ergonomic facilities have been sensitively designed throughout, mirroring the gentle and relaxing atmosphere of the harbour. Finishing touches include heated flooring, backlit mirrors and mood lighting. The space has also been built with the environment in mind, incorporating energy efficient Dyson hand and hair dryers. The centrepiece of the members’ space is an impressive landscape painting depicting yachts on the water, created by Stephen Lees; the colours and composition perfectly unify the space, bringing together sleek design with home-from-home comfort.
Nic added: “In designing the space, we wanted to offer facilities which captured the look and feel of a luxurious spa, but still provided the efficiencies and practicality of an area where members could prepare for their sailing. We hope we have harnessed both elements and very much look forward to our guests making the most of Port Hamble’s new offering.”
MDL Marinas are constantly investing in the marina experience, across the network, helping MDL members to relax, enjoy and discover more from the luxury of their boats.
