Questions regarding Terhills Resort
What is the difference between Terhills Resort and other Center Parcs holiday villages?
The new Terhills Resort by Center Parcs is distinct from other Center Parcs villages in several ways. With only 250 cottages, the resort is smaller scale than other Center Parcs villages. It is all about a premium experience, which is why all accommodations are detached and stylishly furnished. There is also a fine-dining restaurant with gorgeous views over the lake. Nature is central to everything we do at the resort. This is reflected in the interiors and the activities available, such as the many nature activities and workshops. More than at Center Parcs, the resort's immediate environment plays an important role. The resort forms a gateway to the only national park in Belgium and there are facilities immediately adjoining the park to waterski, shop, and relax in a luxury wellness centre. Certain characteristic Center Parcs elements such as the Aqua Mundo and the Market Dome are not present at the resort. It does have a swimming pool (see question 2) and a Country Club (see question 3). Terhills Resort has no Friends benefits.
