Despite the damage caused by the fire that broke out on September 24 in the Zmar Eco Experience, which was installed approximately 10 kilometers from Zambujeira do Mar, in the municipality of Odemira, the owners decided to reopen the space to the public for weekends from 11 November while the works of recovery of the space are not complete.
Although the flames may have affected the spa facilities, the restaurant, kitchens, an indoor swimming pool with waves and a few rooms of the eco-resort, have decided to “reopen the space with a different model," he explained to the AUDIENCE Francesca Mello Breyner, responsible for public relations and communication of the campsite will be installed in the Zambujeira of the Sea, noting that the company will take advantage of the date "to celebrate the” Saint-Martin".
The solution found to overcome the constraints imposed by the destruction of some equipment of the Zmar, allows, still, to resume the activity until the reconstruction of what was destroyed by the fire are completed. Francesca Mello Breyner provides that the entire eco-resort again be accessible in the period of Easter to take advantage of the high demand that usually happens in this festive period.
"it Is a model more conditioning," stresses the head of the Zmar, but that makes possible to host in the immediate future, "two encounters of well-being with nearly 900 people coming from all over the world", followed by another meeting about yoga, events that "concentrate a large number of people", points out.
During the period of restoration works, the eco-resort will be open with services of accommodation and food (breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday, light dinner with a fixed menu on Saturday and a support bar). Those who attend the facility will also have a living-room, table games and TV, massage service, kids space with workshops and ateliers, amusement park, circuit of tree climbing, tennis courts and paddle tennis, field sports, archery, bicycle hire, human table football and pedestrian circuit maintenance. The stay includes free access to all the services, except tree climbing, bike rental, archery, massages, and meals that are subject to an extra fee.
The "conversion" temporary of the services provided by the Zmar is possible because "a large part of the infrastructure stayed intact," says Francesca Mello Breyner, by pointing out that this is a model "more custom".
However, the Judicial Police have already completed the investigations that took place to get to know the causes which have led to the fire "but it is not yet known, the report that has been prepared," noted the spokesman of the Zmar. Francesca Mello Breyner said that about 80 people comprising the staff of the eco-resort "have your guaranteed job". Just been exempted employees who provide temporary work during the Summer period and that they had fixed-term contracts.
The fire that occurred in the Zmar Eco Experience began at 17h39 on 24 September and has forced the withdrawal of the facilities of some 700 people, including customers, employees, and guests of a wedding, but there was no record of victims.
