The Spa at Ramside opens its doors

Ramside Hall Hotel in County Durham has opened its new spa, the final stage in a £16 million investment into the property.

There is a 14-room treatment suite incorporating a 'sleep santuary retreat' with sleep pods, sound wave therapy beds and a rasul chamber, while the Beauty Snug area can be booked out exclusively and offers nail and make-up services.

Wet facilities are covered with five pools inlcuding an outdoor vitality pool, balcony infinity pool and hydrotherapy pools; and there is a thermal suite with aroma steam room, herbal infusion sauna, Himalayan salt steam room, amphitheatre sauna, caldarium and drench showers.

Guests can also make use of the on-site Reef hair salon and fitness suite, which runs a weekly programme of classes. 

Spa director Jill Russell commented: "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.”

The spa has partnered with Espa and also uses Salt of the Earth, Morgan Taylor and Artistic Colour Gloss for nail services, and Mii Cosmetics for make-up. The investment into Ramside Hall has also included 47 new bedrooms, added earlier this year, and the addition of a second golf course in 2014.
