Originally built as a Palace for the Bishops of Down, the Culloden Estate & Spa stands on the forested slopes of the Holywood hills, overlooking Belfast Lough and the County Antrim coastline.

The spa was one of Northern Ireland’s very first when it opened its doors in 1990 at the five-star hotel. Guests can revel in a range of ESPA products and therapies with eight treatment suites, two pre and post treatment relaxation rooms and a variety of different classes at the Health Club including Aquafit, Yogalates and Pilates. Guests can also enjoy relaxing in the pool, Jacuzzi and eucalyptus steam room.

For couples seeking a special treatment, Massage Masterclasses take place in a private couple’s suite and are designed to help couples share the nurturing, relaxing and therapeutic benefits of massage. It incorporates a tutorial with a therapist and is based on simple, easy-to-learn Swedish and sports massage techniques. Following demonstration, guests can then test their new skills on their partner in the privacy of their suite, enjoy a light lunch in the Zest Juice Bar and full use of the spa facilities.

Hastings Hotels offers the Massage Masterclass at the Culloden Estate & Spa for £80 per person, additional to an overnight stay with breakfast from £85 per person. Visit hastingshotels.com for further details.
