A spa break at the Village Hotel Newcastle won’t just nourish the spirit – this hotel will make sure you get fed well too. From the wine-coloured leather booths to the red-and-white check tablecloths, the decor at Buca di Beppo, the hotel’s Italian restaurant, transports you to an authentic trattoria. Historic photos line the walls, chandeliers cast soft, romantic light and the menu serves up classic dishes like spicy meatballs in marinara sauce and a moreish tiramisu. For a more casual bite to eat, head to the Village Pub, where you can sample craft beers, such as Goose Island IPA, along with international dishes in a buzzing sports-bar atmosphere. Among the global flavours you might find are the kofta burger’s taste of Greece or savoury ribs inspired by the USA and covered in the restaurant’s signature BBQ sauce.
In the spa, let the experts soothe your skin with a personalised facial, using ESPA beauty products designed to rejuvenate your individual skin type. Or let your tensions melt away in an aromatherapy massage, evoking exotic climes with fragrant essential oils. If you or your other half would rather get energetic, there’s a 25 metre heated pool, spinning studio and all the latest gym equipment to work up a sweat. Afterwards, you can relax together in the steam room, sauna or the whirlpool spa. With Newcastle’s centre just a 20 minute drive away, embrace the city’s glitz and glamour with a tanning and waxing session, followed by a professional make-up package.
The spa’s tranquil ambience and focus on relaxation is reflected in the guest rooms, with deep-pile carpets in chic multi-stripes and plush sofas. Upgrade to a club room for an ultra-comfortable premium mattress, free mineral water and a Tassimo coffee machine to charge you up for the day’s experiences.
