The building blocks of a luxury resort area
26.10.2016 by Jari Tunttunen
Establishing new and attractive resort areas requires a lot of preliminary research and optimisation. For the real estate investor, the key questions are how to secure a good ROI and how to lower the risks involved.
Avalon Park Resort and Spa in Hungary offers a lot of activities for families and groups of friends as well as the perfect environment for hosting business meetings and seminars.
The answers can be found by creating a sustainable resort concept which covers everything from a look and atmosphere that feel genuine to the actual physical attractions, effectively built premises and thoughtful services offered within them.Well planned is quickly realised: The sooner the resort can be opened, the sooner the investment begins to pay off. Careful management of the following phases helps to reach this goal:
- Investigating the opportunities provided by the location
- Defining the target visitors and what attractions they need
- Deciding on the look and feel of the premises and buildings
- Choosing a sustainable and efficient building technology and building partner
CREATING THE RESORT CONCEPT
The geographical location usually offers many possibilities for a successful resort concept that should be taken into account in the planning phase: an ideal location is easy to reach yet surrounded by beautiful nature and scenery that the future visitors will enjoy. This is why especially luxurious resorts are often located in the countryside, in the mountains, by the sea or in a lake district.

The attractions and services of a resort area depend on the optimal target visitors: will the resort mainly serve families, elderly people, business guests, international tourists and so on. How much money are the target visitors expected to spend during their stay?
When these specifications are clear, it is time to think about the buildings and other facilities: what architectural style best fits the location and the potential visitors? What attractions are needed in the resort area and what kind of buildings are required?
EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT OF THE BUILDING PHASE OF A RESORT
The selection of the construction material and method is a crucial decision in many ways. First of all, the materials need to be safe and meet the local building regulations. An ideal building phase is quick and delivers sustainable buildings. Finally, the chosen building materials are a part of the architecture and directly influence the look and feel of the resort.
That is why we at Honka believe in solid wood. Having built many successful resort areas around the world using natural pine logs we can prove the material’s benefits. Log buildings are safe to use, timeless in design, truly sustainable – and they evoke well-being and positive feelings in people.
Furthermore, with log technology, the construction time will be reduced remarkably compared with other building methods and materials. Honka’s services include efficient design support, careful manufacturing of the structures, delivering them to the site exactly on time and ensuring the competence of the mounting team.
One of the great benefits of building with logs is the speed of construction.

HOLIDAY RESORT BENEFITS FROM SUSTAINABLE BUILDINGS
Natural wood creates a great atmosphere for a holiday resort. With today’s log technology the building design can be modern or traditional, depending on the chosen resort concept. If the drawings have already been drafted with other materials, they can easily be converted into log structures. Shifting to wood will save a lot of time in the building phase and result in quality that can be expected from luxurious buildings.
