VOYA organic seaweed products and treatments can be found in some of the most luxurious spa locations around the world. This week VOYA met Louise Nicholl, Spa Revenue Manager at the incredible The Spa at Galgorm to find out a bit more about Galgorm and what Vitality Week is all about!
The Spa at Galgorm
The Spa at Galgorm located within Galgorm Resort is nestled on the banks of the River Maine in Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland. Owned by the Hill family since 1991 the original building itself dates back to 1857.
With the first Thermal Village in Ireland, Galgorm Resort and Spa are proud to introduce spa facilities that are unique to the UK & Ireland in terms of sheer size (75,000 square feet) and diversity, incorporating hot and cold experiences for guests.
This includes 9 different saunas, one of which is used to perform the Galgorm ‘Celtic Sauna Ritual’, riverside yoga studio, a snow cabin, indoor pool & infinity hydrotherapy pool, experience shower, water beds, outdoor jacuzzi pool & hot tub, beltane hot tub & fire as well as a relaxation orangery and Elements Spa Cafe. Alongside these facilities we also offer an extensive menu of treatments to include bespoke treatments, all of which take place in one of our 13 treatment rooms of which we have 7 single occupancy treatment rooms, 2 double treatment rooms, and 2 hands-off treatment rooms (Cleo bath & Mud Serail).
Also if you’re hungry, Elements Spa Café is located within the heart of the Spa and serves fresh daily snacks such as home baked breads and oils, Sushi, Charcuterie and Super Food Salad alongside a wide selection of herbal teas and juices.
2) Do you have a signature treatment at the spa?
Our 85 minute ‘Taste of Galgorm’ Treatment, especially created for us by VOYA is a blissful ritual which allows you to experience the combination of five specialised treatments including muscle melting back massage, dual action hair mask, facial refresher, and relaxing head massage finishing with the restorative ancient art of the pressure point foot massage.
4) Tell us about The Spa at Galgorm’s team
With a team of over 50 Spa staff and our mission statement ‘every guest leaves with a desire to return’, we pride ourselves on attention to detail and excellent customer service from the initial phone call right through to aftercare offered by our therapists. This ensures that all guests leave the Spa pampered and relaxed. All therapists are qualified to NVQ level 3 in Beauty however we offer continuous training from our VOYA and Aromatherapy Associates trainers . Almost all of our therapy team are trained in Cancer Care treatments which has been accredited by Belfast Northern Health Trust.
5) Is Galgorm’s philosophy similar to VOYA’s?
