Plans for floating eco-resort and spa in Yorkshire given the go-ahead

by Andrew Manns | 18 Dec 2018

Municipal officials have greenlit plans to build Tyram Lakes – an eco-friendly wellness resort in South Yorkshire, UK.

Designed by British firm Baca Architects, the estimated £20m (US$25.4m, €22.3m) retreat, which will be situated on 65 acres of lakes in the Humberside Peatlands, will comprise 325 floating lodges and 104 guestrooms.

Each lodge will have a rooftop garden fitted with solar panels as well as built-in filtration systems that will recycle lakewater.

In addition to accommodating a 100-cover restaurant, a gym, and two swimming pools, the soon-to-be-constructed resort will also feature a spa with six treatment rooms.

Guests will also be able to use the on-site lake for wild swimming, an activity which – in recent years – has been praised for its stress reduction effects.

The project, which is being developed by real estate company Rothgen Management, has been in the pipeline since 2016.

Initial planning permission for the development was granted in March 2017.
