News @ Utopia


** We are RE-OPENING on SATURDAY 11 MARCH 2017! **


So there's good news and bad news. But as always, let's focus on the positive and get ready for Utopia to open its doors again...

We finally have an official, final, carved-in-stone date for the return of Utopia - SATURDAY 11 MARCH!

Our team will access the chalet in the days prior for a mammoth clean-up, then we will be re-opening on the 11th with a new team, new menu and a whole new appreciation for our beautiful old chalet.

Yes, there have been further delays that have pushed the opening back for a third time. However a 200-tonne crane is now on site and massive 2m pins are being driven into the cliff as we speak to hold the netting and stabilise the rock. We want to thank the awesome guys on-site who have been working so hard to get the job done as quickly and safely as possible.

To celebrate, we will be hosting a 'Welcome Back Utopia' day of festivities on Saturday 18 March - including family fun, menu specials and a twilight bridal evening. Stay tuned for details and pop the date in your diary, as we really need your support to help us get back on our feet.

To everyone who has stuck by us for this nightmare 5 months - friends, family, staff and supporters - we cannot thank you enough. Your understanding, support and positive messages have kept us focused firmly ahead, to the day we can finally welcome you all back to Utopia.

So prepare to celebrate - UTOPIA IS BACK IN MARCH!
