Water, play and well-being

The new Lalandia holiday resort in Søndervig is already a popular holiday destination for families.

In June 2022, the third Lalandia holiday resort opened – Lalandia in Søndervig on the west coast of Jutland. The catchy name ‘Lalandia’ is Latin for Lolland, the island in southern Denmark where the first Lalandia opened in 1988. The concept has proved to be extremely successful, with visitor numbers approaching 1.5 million guests a year for the three resorts. Most of the guests come from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Germany.

In the tropical water park – the Aquadome – the water is always 28°C and the air is 30°C. The gigantic hall contains an impressive 14 slides and a wave pool for surfers. You can always get tips and advice from surf instructors and help with getting the rubber raft to hurtle down the large Tornado tube slide, which like some of the other slides also weaves its way outside the actual building. Several smaller pools and activities are designed for the youngest children, who can run around in a safe environment where trained lifeguards keep a close eye on everyone.

Indoor festival

In addition to being a fabulous water park, Lalandia is also a recreational centre, with an amusement arcade, padel courts, shopping, an outdoor pool area and, not least, several different eateries. A lot of thought has gone into creating a relaxed and informal atmosphere. In a way, Lalandia is like an indoor festival site with stalls and activities connected by winding paths.

The resort can accommodate up to 1,600 guests at the same time, which requires high capacity and superior acoustics. The activities in the Aquadome are particularly demanding soundwise, because water splashing against tiles and waves always generate a lot of noise. To solve the problem, sections of Troldtekt acoustic panels have been installed on the large walls, and also on the ceiling above the children’s pool.

In the restaurants, the acoustics are effectively dampened with Troldtekt acoustic panels, which are also used in many of the secondary areas, such as in the changing rooms etc.

In addition to the centre itself, Lalandia also rents out 464 holiday homes, which have been built adjacent to the large hall. They are located in a flat terrain just north of the activities, so holiday guests only have a short distance to walk to the attractions, the town of Søndervig and the North Sea, which lies only 500 metres away.

The houses vary in terms of both their size and shape, but Troldtekt acoustic panels have been installed on all the ceilings. In total, approx. 24,000 square metres of Troldtekt have been supplied, either as roof cassettes or panels for installation with screws.
