Leading North East hotel Ramside Hall Hotel has unveiled artists impressions of its £18m investment plan to create a luxury spa and 47 new deluxe rooms.
The County Durham venue is opening its multi-million pound spa next spring with a range of facilities including a 25m swimming pool, hydrotherapy pool, saunas and a range of steam rooms.
The project includes the creation of an outdoor balcony with an infinity pool spa, a Caldarium – a hot plunge pool – and a Rasul mud chamber.
Other forthcoming features include 12 therapy rooms, a gym, a dance studio and a hair salon, along with the addition of a new Asian style restaurant and bar.
The spa forms part of significant expansion at the four star country house hotel, with the additional bedrooms bringing the total up to 128.
The on-going development also follows investment in the hotel’s golf facilities, with an additional championship 18-hole course created and unveiled earlier this year.
“This is a huge development for the hotel and will be a massive boost for the North East,” said Tim Boyd, general manager at Ramside Hall Hotel.
“We’re creating an amazing state-of-the-art leisure facility which will be suited to everyone, from visitors who want to get fit and keep in shape to anyone who just wants some rest and relaxation.
“At the same time the addition of the extra rooms will give the hotel even more capacity to cope with leisure and business travellers.”
An initial £3m of the total has been spent on the golf course, with the remaining £15m funding the spa and new rooms at the resort, the largest privately owned leisure operation of its kind in the North East.
“Ramside Hall Hotel has always been renowned for its hospitality and its facilities,” added Mr Boyd. “This investment will cement our reputation as one of the most exciting destinations in the region.”
