This development at Gardaland Resort, which is located close to Lake Garda in Northern Italy, is in line with Merlin’s strategy of investing in themed accommodation at its resorts to meet the increasing demand for shorter, more experience-driven holidays.

Expanding the accommodation offering extends the amount of time visitors spend at an attraction, improves guest satisfaction and increases pre-booking.

“On the strength of the results achieved by the Resort last year, we expect the introduction of the Gardaland Magic Hotel to extend the appeal of Italy’s largest theme park resort.”
