Framed by views across the rivers Tyne and Wear, spa hotels in this part of the world have an instant sense of calm about them, irrespective of whether they are located in the country or a city. In Newcastle upon Tyne for example, the river adds a the most spectacular backdrop, reflecting some of the most iconic modern architecture in the UK as well as the bright lights of the city which dance across the water at night.
This enchanting and metropolitan vista is particularly apparent from the romantic spa hotel Malmaison Newcastle, famed for its seductive style. Then again, for those looking for a cheap last minute spa break with all the trimmings, you will also be greeted with charm at the likes of Village Spa Newcastle. The nationwide brand promises contemporary style and reliable breadth of accessibility, whether you’re visiting alone, with a friend or with your kids, thanks to a variety of family friendly facilities.
That said, Tyne and Wear is home to a number of the most prestigious spa hotels in the country. Seaham Hall, the one-time home of Lord Byron, combines exceptional modern style with historic charm, a superb collection of modern art, exquisite food and drink as well as a highly specialised spa experience.
Guests can experience health, wellbeing or simple out-and-out pampering in this carefully considered spa hotel. Their highly trained therapists offer cancer-friendly treatments and are continuously updating their training to stay ahead of the curve. All that is seamlessly brought together by its clifftop location surrounded by 37 acres of gardens.
