Bear Resort namesakes

Wed September 15, 2021

Our brand new property in Arc 1950 ‘Les Oursons’ translates to ‘The Bears’ hence the name of Bear Lodge for the 30 bedroom hotel, and we couldn’t resist naming the 12 chalets after various fictional bear characters.

Here’s the lowdown on each of our 12 bears. How many do you recognise?

Baloo

Of course, everyone will recognise the wonderful Baloo from Jungle Book, the loyal friend of Mowgli and Bagheera. Baloo is a friendly, even-tempered character who lives a responsibility-free lifestyle. Like in the novel, Baloo is one of Mowgli's mentors and friends. Baloo is also patient and strong; his only apparent weakness is that he's ticklish.

Voices of Baloo include Phil Harris in the first film, John Goodman in the second film and Bill Murray in the CGI remake.

Suite Baloo sleeps 4-8 guests
