Join Laura Bartlett as she explores a reggae-infused retreat at Landal Dylan Coastal Resort, Wales…

As the weekend sun dipped below the horizon, my friends and I arrived at Landal Dylan Coastal Resort in Wales, eager to indulge in a unique escape. Our Friday night kicked off with a soulful reggae welcome at Milk Wood House’s restaurant, where a talented singer serenaded us as we enjoyed a sumptuous dinner.

The ambiance was set against a backdrop of a serene sunset, casting a warm glow over our first night.The restaurant and bar boast stunning views of the River Taf, making our delightful meal even more memorable.

Our lodge at Landal Dylan Coastal Resort was nothing short of spectacular. The well-lit, modern lodge provided breathtaking views from both the private terrace and hot tub. Fully equipped for self-sufficiency, they ensured optimum comfort throughout our stay.

Being a teetotaller, I was pleasantly surprised when my friends decided to embrace the spirit of our Welsh retreat by opting for 0% fizz, effortlessly aligning with my sober preferences. With our glasses filled with the non-alcoholic effervescence, we embarked on a journey into the enchanting night.

Our chosen post dinner haven for the evening was the open-air hot tub, strategically positioned to provide a front-row seat to the celestial spectacle above. Under the moon’s gentle glow, the atmosphere transformed into a realm of magic and peacefulness. The moonlight danced upon the water’s surface, casting a silver sheen that accentuated the natural beauty of our surroundings.

It was a night where time stood still, and the ordinary became extraordinary under the celestial canopy. In those magical hours, Landal Dylan Coastal Resort became more than just a destination; it became a sacred space where the moonlit memories forged a connection that would linger in our hearts long after the weekend had passed.

In this tranquil setting, surrounded by the rugged beauty of the landscape and the soft caress of the evening breeze, we found solace in each other’s company. Conversations flowed effortlessly, fuelled by the shared warmth of the hot tub and the serenity of the moonlit night. We reminisced about moments long past, exchanged stories, and revelled in the simple pleasure of being present in that moment.

The next day unfolded with a journey into luxury at the spa, where we were captivated by the state-of-the-art facilities. Milk Wood House offered an unrivalled experience, from herbal steam saunas to Roman baths and an indoor infinity pool. The spa’s ambiance was rejuvenating, providing the perfect escape.

The spa, with its seaweed-based ishga treatments and outdoor hydrotherapy pool, was a true oasis of calm. The resort’s indoor swimming pool and a fully-equipped gym added to the allure. State-of-the-art equipment motivated us to embark on fitness goals before a second night in the hot tub taking in the views for one final time.

Waking up in luxury very quickly became a routine, with the north side showcasing green hills and the south side offering an extended coastline view. The resort’s commitment to providing an unforgettable getaway was evident in every detail.

Landal Dylan Coastal Resort was more than a destination; it was an immersive experience, blending relaxation, entertainment, and stunning scenery. So, whether you’re a fan of reggae beats, a spa enthusiast, or a fitness buff, this Welsh retreat promises an unforgettable and diverse getaway.
