NI’s SMARTest hotel launches £400,000 spa facility

New spa offering combines beauty with the art of relaxation where you can leave it all behind with a day spa experience.

The Salthouse hotel in Ballycastle has opened a new £400,000 spa facility just months after launching what is the country’s most sustainable and eco-friendly hotel.

The new spa will add another eco-friendly dimension to the £5m property complex by offering guests the opportunity to indulge in a range of treatments in one of three stunningly-appointed treatment rooms, rest and relax in the new thermal suite or feel invigorated by the facility’s flowing rain shower.

An aromatherapy steam room and four heated daybeds are also part of the new offering at The Salthouse and for those who want to soak up the hotel’s beautiful surroundings, external hot tubs and a sauna with a view will allow just that with panoramic vistas of the remote Rathlin Island and even Scotland on the doorstep.

All therapists at the spa have been trained by organic beauty brand Voya and will perform treatments using an array of Voya  products to complete a top-to-toe relaxation journey.

And for visitors with an eco-conscience, they can rest assured that the new spa is in keeping with the rest of the venue and is completely powered by renewable energy.

Carl McGarrity from The Salthouse said the spa will complete an already unique and popular offering in Northern Ireland:

“The hotel is now a complete package that invites guests to discover coastal calm and couple it with a well-deserved relaxing break that can be highlighted by one of many spa treatments. It is a welcome and complementary addition to our existing offering and it keeps our sustainable theme strong by using solar and wind power combined with air source heat pumps.”

The spa opening comes just months after The Salthouse wowed visitors to the north coast when it opened in July after a £5m investment.

The 24-bed eco hotel introduced a new hospitality concept to visitors to the area and staycationers by operating solely on renewable energy and using a mix of local materials for construction. An on-site wind turbine and solar panels have become part of the design of the venue, while promoting its carbon-neutral credentials and SMART rooms took the forward-thinking concept even further by employing the latest technology and allowing guests total control of all features including lighting and heating.

As well as its new Spa facility the hotel also has a restaurant offering which embraces its seaside location by serving locally sourced produce, some of which boast a zero mile food journey.

Mr McGarrity says the hotel has a lot more to offer with exciting plans in the pipeline. He added: “The Salthouse is an oasis of calm and there are countless ways to ramp up that offering. We are always looking at new ways of expanding and the phenomenal feedback we’ve received to date tells us demand is high for more of the same. Whatever we introduce, our guests can be sure that it will play on our sustainable credentials and complement our surrounding landscape. We look forward to showcasing our next project in the near future.”
