One of the UK’s most luxurious spas has just opened its doors at a leading North East country house hotel as the final stage of a £16m investment.
Based at Ramside Hall Hotel near Durham, the Spa at Ramside opened to the public on August 15, offering some of the best facilities the region has ever seen.
The launch of the spa, which has created around 60 new jobs, follows a string of additions to the property, including a second championship golf course and a new wing of 47 bedrooms.
Along with its five pools – including a 25 metre swimming pool, outdoor vitality pool, balcony infinity pool and one of the UK’s largest hydrotherapy pools – the spa also has a thermal suite offering a range of facilities and a specialised Sleep Sanctuary retreat with soundwave therapy beds.
The thermal suite includes a herbal infusion sauna, Himalayan salt steam, aroma steam, caldarium and a sunken amphitheatre sauna. The spa also houses a state-of-the-art fitness suite which will offer a programme of more than 40 classes every week.
“The interest we have already had in the spa has been phenomenal and we are so excited to be able to finally show off what is undoubtedly going to be one of the finest spas in the country,” says Jill Russell, spa director.
Other facilities include 14 treatment rooms, a Rasul mud chamber and a beauty snug which can also be booked exclusively for special occasions with use of the pedicure thrones, a nail bar and a make-up parlour.
The Spa at Ramside also has its own hairdressing salon by Reef and the Asian inspired Fusion restaurant, which will offer a variety of snacks and meals throughout the day.
