Spa at Blythswood Square is set to reopen its doors following a seven-figure refurbishment inspired by the natural beauty of the Hebrides.
The spa now boasts the first snow shower in Scotland, one of only two in the UK, where guests can stand or sit as fresh snow falls upon them – which encourages body temperature and blood circulation to restore to normal temperatures, promoting recovery and release of muscle tension.
Its relaxation pools, crystal steam room, and hydrotherapy pool have also been upgraded as part of the project, as have the spa’s nine treatment rooms.
Guests will also be able to experience the wellness benefits of the custom-built Himalayan salt room, designed to improve respiratory function, reduce inflammation and aid detoxification.
Finlay Anderson, Spa Director at Kimpton Blythswood Square and Area Spa Director for IHG Hotels & Resorts said, “We’ve used years of expertise rooted in physiological science to develop a 360-degree wellness experience for our guests – and one that’s easy to follow.
“We’re taking the guesswork out of the spa journey, and making the innovative simple: combining hot and cold thermal experiences with manual treatments, aromatherapy and visual therapy to take care of our guests wellness needs. Guests will not only be able to map out their thermal journey, but link it to a treatment and post-treatment nutrition during their visit.
“The concept – taking influence from the Scottish Hebrides and wellbeing benefits of nature – places Spa at Blythswood at the core of wellness in Scotland. Guests will be reminded of the rugged landscapes, clear waters and natural beauty, while the team’s experience has allowed us to develop meaningful, multi-sensory experiences for our guests.
“Our mission is to help each guest reconnect body and mind and achieve their wellbeing goal, whatever that may be. The elevated experience we’re offering at Spa at Blythswood Square provides a multi-sensory wellness experience to do just that.”
