Galgorm Resort & Spa named Best in World

Galgorm Resort & Spa named Best in World

Galgorm Resort & Spa in Ballymena, Northern Ireland garnered the Global Luxury Spa Hotel of the Year award at the 12th World Luxury Hotel Awards in Bali recently.

Situated just 30 minutes from Belfast and set within 163 acres of lush parkland with the spectacular River Maine flowing through the estate, Galgorm Resort has good reason to be celebrating. Fighting off stiff competition from other luxury hotel spas across the globe, Galgorm can hold its head proud and high as it has officially been recognised as the best Luxury Hotel Spa in the world.

Close to both Belfast airports and the stunning scenery of the North Antrim Coast, Galgorm is home to 122 luxurious guestrooms including 48 deluxe rooms, Junior and Signature Suites, and the unique Thermal Village & Spa that is the first of its kind in Ireland.

“Guests can enjoy the tranquility of nature and relax in the hotel’s Spa and Thermal Village with an extensive selection of riverside hot tubs, indoor and outdoor heated pools, steam rooms and saunas,” explains Colin Johnston, Manager at Galgorm Resort & Spa. “The Resort also has a good selection of restaurants & bars and extensive conference and banqueting facilities.

“Needless to say we are delighted with this award and the fact that our high standards and attention to detail in everything we do has been globally recognised.”
