If you don’t have a spa aboard your yacht, you can have one just steps away. MDL Marinas’ Ocean Village now has more floating pontoons that let you step off deck and walk straight into the five-star hotel where the spa resides. These are among a host of recently completed enhancements at Ocean Village Marina that megayacht guests are benefitting from already.
Ocean Village Marina is the only facility in Southampton, England able to accommodate megayachts up to 295 feet (90 meters). In the heart of the city, the marina is also at the edge of Southampton Water, a short distance to the famed Solent. It also occupies a former commercial ship basin, which explains its large-yacht capabilities.
A mixed leisure, commercial, and residential development, Ocean Village contains a handful of restaurants. It also has the Harbour Hotel and Spa, the newly constructed five-star hotel. The hotel contains both the already mentioned spa as well as a gym. Hydrotherapy pools, a sauna, and a steam room all await. Also waiting for you is Ocean Village Marina’s Platinum Package. This provides benefits at the hotel, such as full gym and spa memberships for two people. You further get a complimentary glass of champagne at one of its restaurants, plus wine and champagne delivery service direct to your yacht.
The new floating pontoons make it easier for crew and guests to make their way to the attractions on the property, and in town. A movie theater is on site at Ocean Village, for instance. What’s more, the Royal Southampton Yacht Club overlooks the marina. If you’re a member, you can use its facilities as well. On a related note, the improvements make it better for the marina staff to assist you. Ocean Village Marina gained a floating dock office, offering concierge services.
Even more improvements are coming, through 2020.
