TROON is set to become the home of a new luxury hotel next year. 

The Salt House Hotel will sit on the banks of Troon's picteruesque marina just a stones throw away from Scotts and will open in early 2020. 

The new ambitious accommodation is set to feature elements of Scottish and Scandanavian design and will feature 10 one and two bedroom luxury suites. 

The 'Scandi-Scot' influences are set to create an intimate, fresh and stylish accommondation.

And the new hotel will be the first of its kind for Yacht Havens Group who are the UK's leading marina owners who aim to capitilise on the gorwing demand for 'relaxed luxury' accomdation. 

Yacht Haven's have told how the exterior of the Salt House will echo Scandinavian timber homes and traditional Scottish boathouses. 

Pitched roofs will follow the lines of sails and masts across the marina and the marina group have promised the striking collection of luxury suites will "nestle in the marina like a collection of smaller moored yachts". 

Inside cosy features including cottons, lines wools and wood will be based on Denmark's 'hygge' lifestyle. 

Eight of the ten luxury suites will boast a balcony opening out over Troon Harbour or the pretty and bustling marina.

A further two suites on the ground floor will be wheelchair accessible and dog friendly, will offer similar coastal views.

The Salt House will also cater for keen golfers visiting Troon's pretigious courses, with a secure golf club storage provided and heated drying racks for shoes. 

Stephen Bennie, Manager of Troon Yacht Haven said: “With nine marinas firmly established in premier locations around the UK, our focus has turned to finding vibrant and complementary ways to open up our waterfront locations to make them accessible to new visitors and, of course, create added opportunities for our berth holders.

“After ‘dipping our toes in the water’ successfully with a restaurant, pub and floating pods, we were keen to open up the beautiful setting of Troon Yacht Haven and create something very special for those looking for relaxed luxury when staying away from home.

“With its striking ‘Scandi-Scot’ influences, the Salt House Hotel will, we believe, achieve just that. It will be an extraordinary building in its own right coupled with the kind of waterside views which draw your breath whatever the weather.”
