A LUXURIOUS County Durham spa has been named among the best in the North East after reaching the final in an industry awards scheme.

The Ramside Spa, located at Ramside Hall Hotel, Golf and Spa at Carville, has been named as a finalist in the North East Spa of the Year category of the Professional Beauty Regional Awards.

The multi award-winning spa offers unrivalled facilities with five pools – including a 25-metre swimming pool – bubble pool, hydrotherapy pool, outside vitality pool and an infinity pool.

Other facilities include a tepidarium, Himalayan salt steam, aroma steam, drench showers and herbal and sunken amphitheatre saunas along with mud Rasul chambers.

It also offers a number of therapeutic beauty and treatment rituals and was the first in the region to become Wellness for Cancer accredited, with staff fully skilled in treating and working with people affected by the illness.

Now it has been recognised by the judging panel for the Professional Beauty Regional Awards, which acknowledges the heroes of the beauty, spa, nails and aesthetic markets.

Ramside Spa director Joanne Green is thrilled to once again in the frame for a major award.

“It’s always fantastic to be shortlisted and I am delighted that we have impressed the judges of the Professional Beauty Regional Awards,” she said.

“The whole team here at the Spa at Ramside works hard to ensure our customers enjoy a first class experience every time they visit, and it’s wonderful to be recognised in this way.

“To reach the finals shows us that our hard work and commitment is paying off, and now we are all looking forward to the big ceremony later in the year to see if we can emerge as winners.”

The winners will be announced at a gala dinner in Manchester in October, and Mark Moloney, managing director of Professional Beauty, added: “The beauty industry is often one of the unsung heroes of the British economy – with many not realising that is employs over 300,000 individuals and generates £7bn in revenue.

“Through these awards we aim to champion the very best within out sector; those who have trained the hardest, developed the customer experience and those whose passion for beauty extends into everything they do.

“By holding the Regional Awards, we are able to seek out the sometimes-lesser known salons and spas that are exceptional at that they do.

“For the thousands of men and women who visit a salon and spa each year, it is because of these therapists that they experience the wonderful treatments which make them feel a million dollars, and as such, these businesses should be recognised for their expertise.”
