Five-star Seaham Hall, on Durham’s splendid Heritage Coast, is shortlisted in the World Spa & Wellness Awards as it unveils three brand new heat-based experiences

14th September 2017

Boutique Seaham Hall – a glorious Georgian manor house, sparkling after its £3M refurbishment – is delighted that its stunning 44,000 sq ft Serenity Spa has been shortlisted in the World Spa & Wellness Awards 2018. Others shortlisted within the Hotel Spa of the Year category include the Bulgari Spa at London’s Bulgari Hotel, and the Dior Institut at Hotel Plaza Athénée, Paris.

This news comes just as Serenity Spa reveals three brand new Asian-inspired thermal facilities:

Salt Sauna

When Himalayan salt is inhaled, its antibacterial properties purify and detox the lungs and sinuses. This has health benefits for those who suffer with asthma, seasonal allergies, coughs and chest congestion, and skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.

Asian Herbal Sanarium

A sanarium combines the benefits of a sauna and a steam room and is a mid-point between the two, with the combination of heat and steam serving to bring impurities to the skin’s surface, where they can be rinsed away.  At Seaham Hall the sanarium is heated to 60 degrees, and its gentle humidity is suffused with exotic essences from Asia.  This, together with a beautiful digital orchid display, creates a fully sensory, sublime experience.

Indian Steam Chamber

Seaham Hall’s new Indian Steam Chamber evokes the bygone age of the Indian dynasties.  Luxurious essences relax the mind and body, with the heat stimulating one’s circulation and enhancing the purifying and detoxifying process.

Seaham Hall is connected to its Serenity Spa via a spectacular, tranquil subterranean walkway. Here, you’ll find a 20-metre pool, 17 therapy rooms, a hammam with walk-in snail showers, an ice fountain, a sanarium with crystal light therapy, a black granite steam room with amethyst crystal, outdoor hot tubs, and much more.
