Surf Snowdonia is situated in Dolgarrog in North Wales, on the site of a former aluminium works. The site was transformed six years ago into the world's first artificial surfing lagoon, café, children’s activity building and campsite with 38 camping pods.

Having created a destination site, the client was keen to reinforce the local offer to a longer stay opportunity by developing a new 100+ bedroom 4-star hotel with bar, restaurant, day spa and large conference facility. The design is striking with a strong, angular design which reflects and represents the surrounding mountainous landscape but built in high quality industrial materials which responds to the past uses of the site. The location is such that the hotel will not only encourage visitors to the site to stay however will also reach out to tourists as a base to explore North Wales and beyond.

The existing activity building has been enlarged and the offer extended to attract a wider age group of thrill seekers, with activities such as caving, wall climbing and a new zip wire which flies over the lagoon!
