The 10,000 square feet Spa at Blythswood Square has been designed by Jim Hamilton of Graven Images as a discreet haven for the hotel’s residents and day guests. Created to reflect the glamorous style of the hotel and the sociable personality of Glasgow’s populace, the Spa houses a number of exclusive features including the UK’s first indigenous Scottish treatments designed by Spa Director, Matt Laird in conjunction with luxury organic product house, ila.
The Spa features Scotland’s first Seaweed Bath complete with organic seaweed sourced direct from the Hebrides and a decadent Dark Pool where guests will be able to relax in warm waters under the gentle light of a crystal chandelier. A grand hydrotherapy pool provides centerpiece for the marble Heat Suite which offers a range of heat and ice experiences including an elevated glass fronted laconium overlooking the 11m relaxation pool.
There are nine spacious and tranquil treatment rooms including a double suite where guests will be able to enjoy a full range of face, body and holistic treatments from ila and haute couture specialist, Anne Semonin. Blythswood Square’s Signature Treatments are centred around a ‘Turus’ (Gaelic word for journey) which combine the natural benefits of Scotland’s purest ingredients including Scotch Thistle extract, seaweed and sea lavender, with healing therapies to provide a complete body and mind experience.
The Spa at Blythswood Square also houses a Rasul, a choice of wet and dry relaxation rooms and a spa lounge where guests can peruse the spa menu and choose from an array of beautifully presented, locally sourced, organic dishes created by the hotel’s award winning Executive Chef, Daniel Hall.
