Bliss Hotel is about to become the newest kid on the block!

The landscape’s about to change in Southport – the North West’s premier coastal destination within an hour of Liverpool and Manchester.

The visionaries and founders of Everyman Cinemas are launching the UK’s first Bliss Hotel! The current 133 room Ramada Plaza Hotel has been re-branded and refurbished, to become the anchor of The Waterfront, a 250,000 sq ft, multi-faceted National leisure resort – boasting a casino, theatre and conference centre – that sits on the edge of Southport’s Marine Lake with sweeping coastal views.

Bliss Investment Partners have recently secured a £15m funding package to support the project – which will deliver the new hotel, together with wider and ambitious plans across the entire Waterfront site – before pursuing a strategic Bliss Hotel expansion drive to bring the “Super Soulful” hotel brand to other locations across the UK.

Bliss Hotel will be the first brand in the UK to trade under the Wyndham Trademark franchise agreement! Immediate works will deliver completion of Bliss Floor 5 – comprising of newly designed rooms, that will showcase handmade Millbrook king sized beds – and new and exclusive 60m2 penthouses, with incredible views of the Marine Lake and the coast beyond

The new 7,000 sq. ft BlissSpace public areas (including a 3,000 sq. ft roof garden) will provide eclectic, quirky, and fun yet easy and informal design, with exciting and inspiring food and drink, delivered by the Bliss Kitchen. At the core of the brand is Blissonik – the music, film and live entertainment ‘soul’ of Bliss, which will deliver a great range of entertainment, from decks and live sets, to movie nights and silent cinema screenings.

With such ambitious plans, Bliss Hotel is already the talk of the town! Check out this article on The Caterer to find out more:

Experts from all over the world have been brought together from culture, design, planning, building management, and food and beverages to make the vision a reality!

Bliss Hotel Co-Founder (and Everyman Founder) Daniel Broch says:
What a moment for Southport and Bliss Hotel; our shared vision’s about to become a reality fuelled by the enthusiasm and excitement of all those involved – creating anything from scratch is hugely inspiring and challenging; we’re aiming high!

Jez Marvin, from the architects Unwin Jones Partnership comments:
“The Bliss Hotel project and Waterfront regeneration represents a fantastic opportunity for Southport, the North West and for all involved.
Unwin Jones Partnership are delighted and excited to have been selected as architect.  Bliss have assembled a team full of talent, ideas and energy – we are looking forward to creating something truly amazing together!”
