I share so many wonderful memories with our guests. Together we can now look forward to a newly renovated resort. Here’s to countless more great holiday memories!
Carlos García Iglesias, Resort Manager
Q&A with Martin Roten, Chief Real Estate & Maintenance
Martin, what does the building project mean to you personally?
I am delighted that the planning phase has been completed as planned and that the definitive timetable is now in place. A renovation this extensive takes careful planning. The coordination process over the last few months has been very challenging. But I am also particularly happy for our guests, who will be able to spend their holidays in a newly renovated resort in the future.
What will be new?
Every holiday apartment will be modernised throughout
Repairs will be made to the indoor pool and sauna
The “Tentación” restaurant will receive a face-lift
The reception area and other public areas will be updated
Repairs will be made to the facades, corridors and stairs to the apartments
Buildings and the water supply system will be repaired
Technical installations will be replaced where necessary
Repairs will be made to the roads and paths inside the resort
When will the construction phase start, and how long will the renovation take?
Construction will begin this winter, while the resort is normally closed, in late 2021 or early 2022. We are planning to open the newly renovated Hapimag Resort Paguera for our shareholders and members again in the 2023 summer season.
Paguera is one of our largest resorts. Capital expenditure here has to be considered very carefully. How are priorities set?
We focus on what is most important to our guests. So, first and foremost, we look at renovating the holiday apartments. We also concentrate on everything that is directly part of the holiday experience. We make sure that the capital expenditure is very targeted and sustainable.
Can you give us an example?
Our furnishings are intrinsically of very good quality, so we can restore a lot of furniture instead of buying new. This saves money and resources, so it is sustainable from both an economic and an environmental perspective.
How many holiday apartments will be available for our guests, and what size will they be?
There will be a total of 250 holiday apartments. Of course, we will also make a number of them wheelchair-accessible. We will have 203 2-room apartments in total and 39 3-room apartments.
What will our apartments look like?
We can show you a few photos of the show apartment in Paguera below.
Thank you, Martin. We can’t wait to hear more about this ...
