Renowned hotel brand and management company Dream Hotel Group announced today plans to launch Your Nature, an Unscripted Eco Resort by Dream Hotel Group.
Your Natureis a Belgian eco-friendly resort located on the French border in a 700-acre forest belonging to the Princes de Ligne. This latest hotel signing represents a major milestone for Dream Hotel Group as it continues to grow its portfolio of lifestyle brands in Europe.
The development is a one-of-a-kind leisure destination designed with sustainability and conservation in mind. Located on preserved land owned by the princely family for over 300 years, the eco-tourism resort will be 100% environmental-friendly and built to maximize the conservation of the biodiversity and natural resources on the estate.
Nestled among 700 hundred acres of preserved natural forestland which contains a river and six private lakes, Your Nature will take advantage of the land with eco-lodges, multiple dining and nightlife concepts, and vast recreational facilities, including an expansive wellness centre with full-service spa, Turkish bath, yoga and fitness centre and multiple indoor and outdoor pools.
A private airstrip with gliding classes and exclusive water ski school complete the visitor experience, which pays homage to the richness of the ecosystem.
Your Nature aims to offer an experience where guests can find serenity, reconnect with loved ones, and spend quality time with friends and family in a secluded nature retreat.
Your Nature offers diverse experiences in housing and a multitude of recreational activities based on the four elements of earth, air, water and fire.
Your Nature is located on the western edge of Belgium in Antoing, a town in close proximity to several major metropolitan cities and less than two hours from London, Paris and Brussels.
The project required 81 million euros of investments, including 23.4 million euros of private equity. The de Ligne family is the main shareholder.
In addition to today’s Belgian announcement, the de Linge family and Dream Hotel Group plan to expand the Your Nature into new markets across Europe and North America.
With 18 hotels open today and 20 new locations currently in development worldwide, Dream Hotel Group is on track to triple its existing portfolio by 2022. The signing of Your Nature, an Unscripted Eco Resort by Dream Hotel Group, signals another milestone in the continued growth and evolution of the company and its portfolio of lifestyle brands.
THPT Comment: Not only another strike for Dream, but another example of eco-tourism hotel development in Europe.
