Virgin Holidays welcomes v-room lounge to Gatwick

Christmas has arrived early at Virgin Holidays, as the company unveils its brand new v-room lounge at Gatwick Airport, which is now available to book for visits from January 25th.

Whether you’re a honeymooner off to the Caribbean or taking the kids away to Orlando, the v-room truly caters for everyone, all with a premium design ethos, yet retaining a lot of family-friendly quirks.

Covering more than 7,200 square feet and available exclusively for Virgin Holidays’ customers, the new space creates a calming atmosphere away from the hectic airport terminal through its pastel tones, sumptuous relaxation areas and extensive menus.

Here, visitors can sip a specialty cocktail, enjoy a hearty breakfast and even try their hand on one of the lounges many interactive games.

Split into a number of distinct sections, the v-room includes:

  • Innovate: Practice your driving skills in the Forza racing car sled, take part in a kids vs adults game of table football or Xbox Kinect games and even take the first of your holiday selfies in the dedicated booth, all with your chosen destination super imposed on the background.
  • Toddler time: Created specifically for the under-fives, this immersive space really focuses on the needs of the youngest travellers. There’s a variety of touch screen games, with a soft play area and slide, an arts & crafts table and TVs screening child friendly content, to ensure the little ones are kept fully immersed during their airport experience.
  • Try before you fly: Inspired by some of the most tropical destinations, cabana daybeds will make you feel like you’ve already arrived on holiday. The space is designed strictly with older guests in mind, who can relax in style with a cocktail and a magazine, before they even hit the beach.

Guests will also be able to enjoy an al-a-carte hot food menu, along with an extensive continental buffet offering. 

Other finishing touches include a gourmet coffee shop, Cup Cup & Away, and a pancake machine that offers a variety of personalised toppings. 

There’s also a Virgin Holidays Service Desk, where our experienced staff are on hand to offer any last minute travel advice or last minute requests to make your holiday extra special along with check-in screens for car-hire specialist Alamo.

And, to ensure the ultimate flexibility for customers, two packages can be purchased, the standard package, or the standard plus, which has the added bonus of beers, wines and spirts included.

Virgin Holidays managing director Mark Anderson commented: “We want to create truly memorable experiences for our customers and we think that begins before their feet have even left the ground. 

“We make epic holidays and our new v-room is just the latest example of how we achieve this. 

“We’ve really tried to think of the individual needs of everyone who holidays with us, and I believe the new space does just this – albeit with an added touch of Virgin Holidays flair.”
