The Fleurieu Peninsula’s sandy beaches and dramatic, rugged coastline has provided design inspiration for a major renovation program undertaken by Accor Vacation Club at The Links Lady Bay in South Australia.
Designed and furnished by architecture firm, Jessica Street Design, with building by McDas Construction, the extensive refurbishment touched on every component of Accor Vacation Club’s 15 upscale apartments located within the hotel. The result – exceptional quality for Accor Vacation Club Members, and a new standard in upscale accommodation for the destination.
“We’re not just talking about a simple room update here,” explained Accor Vacation Club CEO Craig Wood. “Each apartment boasts a complete chef’s kitchen, extra-large bathroom, full lounge and dining area, plus a master bedroom, so the scale of each space to be renovated had to be carefully considered in order for the project to be successfully completed on budget, and in keeping to our expectations for a superior, high-style finish.”
Influenced by direct Member feedback, the renovation of The Links Lady Bay Accor Vacation Club Apartments notably included major work within the bathrooms, in order to provide a separate the bath and shower for increased accessibility and a more luxurious feel for guests.
Other key design features included the addition of intricate Master bedroom bedheads above new Sleepmaker beds, custom-made timber and marble bedside tables and drawers, diamond buttoning on the upholstery, ornate bathroom mirrors and LED lit iridescent sheer curtains. “The curtains were embellished to create the most luxurious effect, without compromising the budget,” said Mr Wood.
To reflect its seaside location, the overall colour palette in each apartment leans towards muted blues and pearly creams, reflective of the relaxed yet dramatic coastal environment that surrounds The Links Lady Bay Accor Vacation Club Apartments.
