Luxury resort set to create 110 jobs in west Wales

LUXURY Lodges has announced it is creating up to 110 new jobs to support the £15million investment in its Laugharne Resort & Milkwood Spa in Carmarthenshire.

The current 77 lodges at the resort are being expanded to 125, and a state-of-the-art £6million clubhouse, boasting an infinity swimming pool, outside hydrotherapy pool, a panoramic sauna, and an elevated restaurant and bar, will be unveiled in the New Year.

Now the company is recruiting dozens of staff to work at the new facilities, and is holding a recruitment day next month.

Sharon Hurley, founder of Luxury Lodges, said:

“These are obviously extremely exciting plans which will be improving the tourism offering in the local community and South West Wales, and we are proud of what we have created.

“The resort has been impeccably designed to make the most of its unrivalled location and spectacular views over the Taf estuary.

“We have combined the most efficient, sustainable and ecologically sensitive methods of building and technology, and have been working closely with local planning authorities to ensure the conservation of the surrounding historic environment, and ensure a positive impact on local businesses.

“We are already a significant employer in the region, and we are recruiting an additional 30 new members of staff to join the existing team of 40 for the initial opening of Milkwood Spa in January 2020.

“As we move forward, with more lodges being built and other areas of the resort being developed, our staff numbers will grow further, creating plenty of opportunities for local people who want to be a part of what we do. We expect that will result in the creation of 110 new jobs over all.”

The initial roles Luxury Lodges are recruiting for include the following key staff members:

  • Clubhouse manager (full time)
  • Spa Therapists (full and part time) 
  • Receptionist (full time) 
  • Food & Beverage Supervisor & Assistants (full and part time)
  • Head Cook & Cooks (full and part time)
  • Kitchen Porters (full and part time)
  • Housekeeping (full and part time) 

Anyone interested in finding out more information about the first roles can attend an Open Day on Thursday, November 7, at Broadway Country House Hotel, Broadway, Laugharne, Carmarthenshire, SA33 4NU.
