Green, greener, Ireland
Tuesday 17, July 2012
The Cliff House Hotel adapts its concept to the image of the country – sustainable operations and the gentle integration into the surrounding nature make this design hotel so special.
The Cliff House Hotel is tucked away at the Irish coast, only two and a half hours by car away from Dublin. Nestled into the green of nature, it offers guests unrestricted views over the sea and the historical town of Ardmore, west of the shire Waterford. Guests who step over the door sills of this hotel, place emphasis on alternative and sustainable travel and do not forego design and five-star-standards. The interior design of The Cliff House Hotel is dominated by various rocks, woods and other materials by nature and the colours of the surrounding area are reflected in the fabrics. Part of the concept is also the integration of the surrounding nature into the rooms, through generous windows. As of July this year, there is also an electrical car for the transfers to and from the airport, as well as excursions into the region. Almost all of the 39 rooms offer a balcony or a terrace with wonderful views over the cost and sea. Pictures, furniture and paintings were crafted by local artists. The suites are spread over two floors and offer generous bathrooms that allow a bath in the open.
At The House Restaurant, Chef Martijn Kajuiter prepares almost all meals with regional ingredients. He already received one Michelin star for his refinement of the Irish cuisine. The House is therefore the only Restaurant and Hotel in Ireland with this award. The Well Spa features an indoor infinity pool, sauna, steam bath and a fully equipped fitness center. Cedar-clad steps lead to a natural outdoor rock pool for a refreshing dip into the sea. For restorative therapies, The Well Spa uses the premier Voya range, Dermalogica and Anne Semonin’s exclusive beauty products.
The Cliff Spa Classic Package includes one night accommodation in a Deluxe Room for two persons, typical Irish breakfast, a three-course dinner at the CliffBar Restaurant and optional a back massage, a Voya Express Facial, Eye Brillance, a pedicure for him, a luxury manicure, or a head massage and starts at 340 Euro.
