The four-star hotel justly boasts the finest sport, fitness and spa facilities in Wales, including the Lake championship golf course, plus its own teaching academy and floodlit 20-bay driving range.
The course is aptly named, with water coming into play on 11 holes, including the daunting 12th where the green is on an island, plus there are many cleverly-landscaped and challenging holes.
Our Golf Special, which costs just £90 per person, includes for handicap golfers a round on the Lake Course, and one night?s bed, full Welsh breakfast and dinner*.
If you are a golfer, who has yet to gain a handicap or have never played but would like to learn, there is the alternative of two 30-minute learn-to-play-golf clinics provided by one of the resort?s PGA-qualified teaching professionals.
And if you and/or your partner would rather spend your visit being pampered and refreshed instead of playing golf, you can choose a soothing facial and a relaxing back and shoulder massage in the top-class Vale Health Spa.
Here in 19 treatment rooms the experienced staff offer a comprehensive range of individual holistic, therapeutic and beauty programmes, including massage, hydrotherapy and dry flotation treatments, facials, reflexology and aromatherapy.
You will also be able to sample the rest of the Vale?s superb facilities, which include three squash and tennis courts, a state-of-the-art gymnasium, 20-metre swimming pool, fitness studios, sauna, steamrooms and whirlpool bath.
Each of the hotel?s 143 air-conditioned guest rooms, some with inter-connecting family rooms, has luxurious en-suite facilities and most offer superb views from private balconies over the golf course or surrounding countryside.
You will find that dining is an equal pleasure in the Vale?s bistro-style Lakes Restaurant, where you can choose from a most inventive and contemporary-style menu.
The Vale?s ideal location also makes it the perfect touring centre with Cardiff and its extensive range of shops, night life and exciting new waterfront within easy reach, as well as the famous Welsh Folk Museum and the Vale of Glamorgan?s historic market towns, such as Cowbridge.
