One of the best things about going on holiday is taking some time out to relax and enjoy yourself. But why wait until you’ve reached resort when you can start from the get-go, the airport? The Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at Gatwick in the North Terminal is a necessary indulgence and makes the perfect start for your trip. Offering the ultimate airport experience, you can have a glass of wine or dinner before your flight, or even a relaxing spa treatment. Below, we give you a little insight into what you can expect from this luxury holiday add-on.
Enjoy a bright and airy space which overlooks the Virgin Fleet. Interiors are modern, and there are sofas where you can catch up on a good book or family areas where even the smallest of travellers can be entertained. Plus, there’s a grand marble bar where you can sample a few exotic cocktails or sip your favourite tipples. Try signature cocktail blends which have been crafted by Ryan Chetiyawardana, aka the owner of the White Lyan, an East London cocktail club, crowned the Best Bar in London by Time Out 2015.
There’s no need to go hungry whilst waiting for your flight. Sink your teeth into delicious breakfasts and lunches from the a la carte menu. Choose from healthy, yet delectable favourites from porridge, yoghurts and fruit to a hearty breakfast burger or waffles and syrup. Whatever you fancy, you’ll be in for a treat. If you’re celebrating, opt for a bottle of Champagne or sparkling wine.
Expect a bespoke experience at The Clubhouse Spa, which will ensure that you depart for your holiday feeling pampered and spoilt. Choose from beauty treatments to quality, botanical facials, using well-known brands like Bumble and bumble, Cowshed and Shellac. Some treatments are complimentary like the express facial, head massage or a gents file and buff. If a little luxury is needed, then you can book additional treatments at an extra cost.
