Hotel Expansion Planning begins. Chessington World of Adventures has today submitted a new planning application. The plans detail the resort’s desire to expand the accommodation offering. Adding a new wing to the existing hotel. It will be linked to the existing hotel via a glass bridge.
The new hotel building is planned to feature sixty-nine new bedrooms across three floors. Featuring a variety of standard and accessible rooms, the new hotel wing is a welcome addition. The current hotel is often busy, with the Zafari restaurant often fully booked. The new wing looks set to aid that.
Alongside the new rooms is a ground-level restaurant and bar, but that is not all. As well as the new hotel wing. Changes to the current hotel building are also in the works. Plans show that Chessington would like to expand the leisure offering in the current Safari Hotel. By expanding the bar and pool area. With an extension to the rear of the pool.
Planned as a more child-friendly pool area. We expect it to be in the form of a splash pool with juvenile water slides for the younger guests. This extension will replace part of the current exterior decking area.
The extension is exciting for the park. We cannot wait to see its progress and will be keeping an eye on the planning portal for news. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled on Chessington Buzz for the latest news and updates. We’ll be sure to cover the construction, so watch this space!
