The award-winning Danish amusement park Fårup Sommerland is to realise its dream of resort status with the addition of a 4-star hotel, opening in 2016.
“We have wanted a hotel in the park for years,” confirms Fårup Sommerland president and managing director, Søren Kragelund. “We have a great demand from our guests for overnight accommodation in the park. The final decision was made at our board meeting on 18 August and we were in agreement to immediately begin realising the plans.”
Groundbreaking for the DKK 45 million project is due any day now. The 51-room hotel will be integrated into part of the park’s forest and offer views across the lake to the rollercoasters Orkanen and Falken.
“Like everything else in Fårup Sommerland, the rooms will be decorated in a really fun forest theme with children and family-friendly layout from top to bottom. It will be a fun experience to stay overnight,” adds Kragelund.
Located close to the North Sea and sandy beaches of North Jutland, Fårup Sommerland has been part of the Danish tourism landscape for the last 40 years. The hotel is to be a great addition to the many camping sites and other overnight accommodation options already in the area.
