North East | Twilight spa experience - Ramside Hall Hotel and Spa, Durham

Last week I was lucky enough to go to 2 spa's in County Durham. 2 very different experiences but both equally luxurious and relaxing. On Thursday, I went to the Ramside hotel approx 5 mins drive from Durham City centre for a Twilight Spa 'catch up' evening.

This costs from £55 per person (£10 extra Fri-Sun) and is from 5.30pm which includes 2 course evening meal at the spa's Thai Fusion restaurant and then use of the amazing facilities until 9.30pm. This is just one of the experiences offered by the spa at different times and prices.

As a guest of the spa for the evening, I was fortunate to be given this experience as a gift and was provided with a full tour of the newly built £8million development including treatment rooms, nail bar and 5 pools. 

After the tour we were treated to a thai buffet where we were able to taste some of the options on the menu followed by use of the facilities. I had no idea what to expect as I had been to the hotel for events but not had the opportunity to visit the spa before. I was blown away by the vast choice of ways to relax during my evening, it has certainly opened by eyes that I should be indulging like this on a more regular basis especially with this on my doorstep.

The facilities are split into different areas - 
Fitness suite
Treatment rooms
Wet Spa which includes 2 outside heated pools
Thermal suite
Thai Fusion Restaurant - (We did eat before the spa but I will pop this to the end of the post).

Firstly we visited the Fitness suite which is the extensive gym offering with scheduled gym classes and optional personal training.

This then led to Treatment Rooms including a fabulous Nail Bar, Well polished. This area was quiet and tranquil to make sure the customers having treatments were given the best possible experience.

The luxurious Nail Bar with crushed velvet chairs and cushions with sinks for soaking tired paws was my favourite part on the tour. 

It would be amazing as a hen party location for a pamper following onto the chill out room with comfy seating and hanging chair, which looked out onto the outdoor heated infinity pool...dreamy vibes.

We then made our way downstairs via another chill out zone to the Wet Spa and thermal suites. 

I had no idea the volume of pools available, 5 in total including the infinity pool upstairs. 

We were provided with robes, towels and flip flops to get ready and then dive into our twilight spa session.

Within the Thermal suites were a number of different rooms including a Herbal Sauna, Himalayan Salt Steam, Aroma Steam, Tepidarium, Sunken Sauna and Drench Showers.

5 pools - including a full size 25 metre swimming pool plus bubble pool (jacuzzi), large Hydrotherapy pool with swan necks and massage jets (so relaxing and actually very high pressure so you could feel them working on your body, outdoor vitality pool in the Spa Herb Garden plus the newly reopened balcony infinity pool, which is only available for private hire or signature spa day experiences, so make sure you do ask if this is included in your booking to avoid disappointment.

Thank you Kayleigh for letting me use this picture 

As I mentioned we did eat before our spa session but I thought it made sense to pop this at the end. The Thai Fusion Restaurant was simply delicious, I have been here before with my friend for an evening meal and I cannot fault it. I love Thai food and the selection on offer and setting really is lovely. 

Thai restaurants are hard to find and I can highly recommend the food at Fusion especially the Satay Chicken, Duck Spring Rolls and Phad Thai. 

I also absolutely love the table covered with a tree in blossom - I would love to book this table for a special occasion, I was advised this is possible and would be suitable for more than 5 people.

I will certainly be booking to go back to the spa in the new year. My friend Natalie and I have our eye on the afternoon tea experience to beat the January blues.

Massive thank you to Ramside Spa and Sorted PR for organising this event and my invite as I would not have realised the amazing facilities on offer without this.  

I am more than sure there will be an experience to fit your budget and time available and you will come away fully revitalised.

There is some amazing winter offers on at the moment including one with 1 nights stay and use of the facilities including a meal at Fusion, so please enquire if you are looking for somewhere to escape and unwind after the xmas craziness,  or even buy it as a gift for a loved one.
