The Spa At Ashford Castle Wins Accolade At 2017 World Luxury Spa Awards
The magnificent Ashford Castle is delighted to announce that it has added yet another prestigious international award to its collection as The Spa at Ashford is named winner of ‘Northern Europe’s Luxury Hotel Spa Award 2017’ at the annual World Luxury Spa Awards. Regarded as the benchmark of excellence for luxury spas worldwide, the World Luxury Spa Awards were established to celebrate ultimate achievement in exceptional service within the global luxury spa sector.
Presented over 32 different categories, the winners of the coveted awards were announced at a prestigious gala ceremony in the JW Marriott Hanoi, Vietnam when hospitality leaders from around the world gathered to celebrate the World Luxury Spa and Restaurant Awards on 22nd July.
The Spa at Ashford Castle was unveiled in 2015 as the final luxury instalment in the historic property’s extensive restoration and is regarded as one of the country’s most luxurious spa destinations. The striking French-style conservatory adjoins the 800 year old castle and houses an indoor resistance pool offering views across the serene Lough Corrib. State of the art facilities at the Spa include an invigorating Hammam, steam room, manicure and pedicure area, a tranquil relaxation suite and five treatment rooms, including a couple’s suite, where guests can indulge in a vast range of pampering treatments. The Spa offers products from organic Irish brand Voya, internationally renowned Elemis and Red Carnation Hotel’s very own B|Africa product range, previously exclusive to the collection’s South Africa properties.
Ashford Castle is uniquely nestled on 350 acres of rolling West of Ireland countryside, overlooking the shores of Ireland’s second largest lake, Lough Corrib. The estate includes pristine gardens, originally created by Lady Ardilaun of the Guinness family and recently restored to their former glory during the hotel’s extensive restoration project; a 9 hole golf course; Ireland’s first School of Falconry; an equestrian centre; Ireland’s only Orvis-endorsed fishing school and newly resurfaced tennis courts, all to be enjoyed by guests of Ashford Castle and The Lodge at Ashford Castle.
Ashford Castle reopened its doors in April 2015 following the completion of the property’s extensive restoration project by new owners, the Tollman family of Red Carnation Hotels.
