De Vere Group has acquired a long leasehold development site in Aberdeen for its first Village Urban Resort in Scotland.
The 148-bedroom property will be built on a 100,000-plus square foot site on Drum Property Group's Prime Four Business Park in the city.
Due to open in November 2014, the resort is expected to include a Chop & Ale House restaurant, Starbucks coffee shop, pub, Viva Urban spa and a Velocity health and fitness club.
Robert Cook, chief executive of Village Urban Resorts, said: "Prime Four's position and its status as a major new energy hub, together with Aberdeen's on-going economic resilience, meant that this was an ideal location for us to establish our first Village Urban Resort in Scotland."
Kerr Young, associate director of hotels for property company Christie + Co, which negotiated the deal, added: "This significant investment by De Vere reinforces Aberdeen's relative safe-haven status and will provide a superb facility for business visitors, leisure travellers and to local residents and the wider community."
There are currently 25 Village Urban Resorts across the UK.
