A hotel in Northern Ireland that is being called a ‘luxury eco and smart hotel’ has added to its offering with the launch of a new £400k spa facility, just five months after opening its doors for the first time.
The Salthouse Hotel in Ballycastle opened in July in a bid to be the ‘country’s most sustainable and eco-friendly hotel’ after a £5m investment.
Now the property has launched a new spa, complete with three treatment rooms, thermal suite, aromatherapy steam room, outside hot tubs, and sauna with a view of Scotland.
Treatments are from organic beauty brand Voya.
Speaking to Farm Week, Carl McGarrity from The Salthouse said: “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 Salthouse Hotel comprises 24 bedrooms and operates solely on renewable energy, with an on-site wind turbine and solar panels part of the design.
The hotel’s restaurant embraces its location and uses locally-sourced produce in its menus, some of which boast a zero mile food journey.
The hotel is run by husband and wife team Nigel and Joann McGarrity and their son and daughter, Carl and Emma McGarrity.
