OKW is a lovely Resort, never stayed there but my Cosuin has owned there since they were built.
Thanks, I was ok with SSR until this last trip where it just seemed so tired and in need of a refurb. The grounds are still lovely and it's a peaceful resort but I think the crunchy carpet was the final straw for me.

I would definitely do the OKW 2 bed, the refurb there is very nice and the 2 bed is extremely spacious, I stayed in one in 2016.

Tom, do you know whether the remodelled studios will get the 5th Murphy bed?

Sorry I forgot to ask. Probably due to the fact it's invariably just the two of us and it slipped my mind.

However I will be amazed if they don't do a 5th bed as the room size will certainly take it. Would fit nicely in the current location of that awful TV and drawer unit that looks like it was acquired from a junk shop.

Ali. Ha ha. 2003 antiques. Mind you in America that is really really ancient!

They made a right mess of the when they switched from the CRT TV's to Flat Screen and had to change the units shape.

Worst carpentry I have seen in years. I would have been sacked if I produced work like that.

I would be really happy if they put the 3rd bed in - studios and 1 beds. would absolutely be perfect for us for the future.

New set of photos (some seen before which I posted months ago) pinched off Facebook.

It would appear to be a set of drawers rather than a Murphy under the TV.

Somewhat inexplicable if the case, as the rooms are same size as units at BWV/ BCV.

I've seen it speculated that they made the studios 5 beds as in the resorts with hotels expenses are split based on occupancy and there's no motivation to do it at SSR, but they made Riviera 5 bed.

Unless of course it's carefully disguised but all the others have a table where the drawers are.

Otherwise looks v nice, and actually relaxing I'd call the decor.

Thanks for sharing YT! 👍🏼

I was meant to be staying there this August but have changed resorts due to the much needed refurb. Would love to stay there once itís all done though!
