Legoland Windsor hasn't yet opened its new Woodland Village resort but is already keen to expand its on-site accommodation offering with two further phases to the project.

When the accommodation launches in May this year, it'll include 150 lodges, play areas, a bar and restaurant, entertainment offerings and more. These further two phases will triple the number of units, adding another 300 and taking the grand total to 450.

As well as the woodland theme, phases two and three will introduce 'adventure' and 'Ninjago' themes, which add to the general LEGO and castle theming at the park's two existing hotels.

To mix things up, the resort is introducing more than just lodges: there will also be three blocks of accommodation which are motel-like in design – similar to the All Star Resorts at Walt Disney World.

On top of this, there will also be a number of premium lodges, 13 'super premium' lodges and seven luxury treehouses, reminiscent of those found at The Enchanted Village at Alton Towers.

In addition, a new central hub area will be built featuring additional dining and staff areas.

Hey big spender

Clearly, Merlin has no plans to stop investing in Legoland Windsor. Also opening in 2024 is the park's dueling Zierer boomerangs, Minifigure Speedway. There's also a rather large parcel of land just opened up on the site of the now-closed Viking River Splash, and the pair of indoor crazy golf courses are barely six months old.

Merlin knows that Legoland is the jewel in its crown. It's the busiest park in the UK, and as a result, gets the highest and most consistent level of investment. And following these announcements, Merlin has no intentions of slowing things down.
