Connoisseurs of the finer things in life can enjoy the ultimate VIP experience, courtesy of one of the North East’s most prestigious hotels. Five-star Seaham Hall has created a gift package aimed at hard-to-please lovers of luxury – with a £3,499 price tag.
The hotel, which overlooks the Durham heritage coastline and was the setting for the marriage of Lord Byron, has joined forces with the world-famous Spey Whisky Distillery at Aviemore, to offer couples a once in a lifetime chance to enjoy 24 hours of undiluted luxury. Following arrival at Seaham Hall, a private helicopter will whisk them north to the Scottish distillery, where they will be met by a master blender, who will provide an insight into the company, together with a vintage whisky tasting.
The helicopter will then return them to Seaham Hall, where they will be welcomed with a glass of Champagne on the lawn prior to dining at the hotel’s outstanding Blunos Sea Grill, overseen by culinary director Martin Blunos. After dinner, which will be served with wines chosen to complement each course, the couple will retire to the hotel’s sumptuous Penthouse Suite, which offers stunning views across the coast. The following morning after a full English breakfast there is the opportunity to unwind at Seaham Hall’s award-winning Serenity Spa prior to their departure.
