    A leading North East hotel has unveiled its plans for an ambitious £18m development which will see the creation of a state-of-the-art luxury spa and 47 new deluxe rooms.Ramside Hall Hotel near to Durham will be opening the Spa at Ramside in the spring of 2015, with a range of exciting facilities including a 25m long pool, hydrotherapy pool, saunas and a range of different 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.

    It will offer 12 therapy rooms, a gym, a dance studio and a hair salon, along with enhancing the hotel’s food operation with the addition of a new Asian style restaurant and bar.

    The spa is part of a massive investment in the four star country house hotel, with the additional bedrooms bringing the total up to 128.

    The on-going development come after a huge investment in the hotel’s golf facilities, with an additional championship 18 hole course created and unveiled earlier this year.

    The hotel is already renowned as a conference and events venue with a variety of rooms and suites, along with two restaurants including its award-winning Rib Room.

    “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 investment 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,” said Mr Boyd.

    “And this investment will cement our reputation as one of the most exciting destinations in the region.”
