Luxury hotel and spa destination, Galgorm Spa and Golf Resort, has unveiled its newly enhanced Thermal Village and Spa, following a £2m investment.

The expansion project commenced this March after the destination in Northern Ireland closed its doors in line with government safety restrictions.

The recently-reopened resort has been updated to include a 10-metre infinity pool on the banks of the River Maine and a brand new Salt Room for halotherapy experiences, both supplied by The Mosaic Spa Company.

Guests will also be able to visit a new 200sq m Palm House relaxation area featuring six heated loungers.

With over 90 per cent of its Thermal Village and Spa offering located outdoors, Galgorm has also installed three additional private hot tubs with waterfall views, six riverside cabanas and two group hot tubs and saunas – the latter of which were also supplied by The Mosaic Spa Company.

Colin Johnston, Galgorm Collection MD, said: “We’re continually seeking ways to enhance the guest experience, and with the closure of The Resort in March, we had the opportunity to further invest and expand.”

The spa expansion project is the latest venture in Galgorm’s investment into the Resort.
Over the last decade, the estate has undergone a £60m transformation and there are further plans to invest an additional £20m by 2025.

Northern Ireland’s First Minister, Arlene Foster, welcomed Galgorm’s return and its continued tourism investment:

“A world leader for local tourism, Galgorm is undoubtedly a premier destination and, with more people choosing to vacation at home this summer, this investment into its award-winning spa facilities is timely and welcomed.

“Galgorm has continually demonstrated their commitment to Northern Ireland, leading and innovating with the supported development of its team in skills and best practice training.

“As our tourism and hospitality industry focuses on rebuilding, it is encouraging to see one of the best-known businesses continue to invest and innovate, bolstering the recovering economy and cementing its reputation as a world-class destination.”

Existing wellness facilities at Galgorm include a spa with treatment rooms offering a menu using Voya and Aromatherapy Associates, indoor and outdoor heated pools, steamrooms, Celtic sauna, sanarium, snow cabin, Orangery relaxation room and River House yoga studio.

There is also an infinity hydrotherapy pool, outdoor spa pool, laconium, herb caldarium, aroma grotto, ice fountain, sauna and experience showers.

Galgorm has recently been confirmed as one of the first properties to feature Aromatherapy Associates’ In-Room Wellbeing Experiences – click here to find out more.
