£100m Land & Lakes project bought up by Bluestone
Bluestone has revealed ambitious plans for a second luxury resort in Wales, due to open in the summer of 2021. With its original resort in rural Pembrokeshire thriving, Bluestone has struck a significant deal with Land & Lakes to develop 200 acres of land at Penrhos country park. Land & Lakes originally secured outline planning permission for the project in 2016.
The resort will be called Bluestone Holy Island Resort Ynys Mon and will include 500 glass fronted luxury lodges with access to a private beach, an indoor waterpark, sports hall, cafes, bars and restaurants.
William McNamara, Bluestone Chief Executive, commented,
“We are delighted to announce that Bluestone will create another unique short break destination bringing millions of pounds of investment and hundreds of jobs to Holy Island, Ynys Môn.
“Our outward looking ethos will prevail and that means we will be working with local contractors, suppliers and the people of North Wales to deliver another world class destination.
“The resort will be sensitively developed, respecting and protecting the language, culture and environment of this beautiful coastal location.
“We can give hundreds of young people a start in their working lives and for older people, a new challenge or a change of career and bring success and prosperity to this special part of North Wales.
“We have a wealth of experience working with local suppliers and have helped build a huge variety of businesses in Pembrokeshire over the past decade. We believe we can replicate the same in the community of Ynys Môn.
“It will be a significant deal for Wales and give a huge boost to Welsh businesses. We will attract thousands of families from around the UK and Ireland to visit our beautiful country, spend their holidays here and be part of our Bluestone story.”
