‘Perfect place to relax’

Six-time World Superbike champion Jonathan Rea OBE and his wife Tatia are the Burrow’s first official members and Jonathan, a regular visitor to The Rabbit was impressed by what he saw.

“As a sportsman and busy dad to two young boys, it’s really important to schedule in down time. The outdoor spa facilities are absolutely first-class and its forest and lakeside setting really promote mindfulness and wellbeing.

“It’s the perfect place to relax, recharge and connect with nature while enjoying the stellar service that Galgorm is known for.

“I’m also really impressed with plans for the brand new, state-of-the-art facilities and focused programmes on offer for serious fitness training and I’m looking forward to my first training session.”

Rabbit GM Lynsey Gordon, above, added: “We’re thrilled to sign up Jonathan and Tatia as our first members and look forward to welcoming more over the coming weeks.”

Membership to The Rabbit Hotel & Retreat is available annually on an individual or joint basis, starting from £2,000 annually with an exclusive introductory offer.
