Gleneagles has a reputation for excellent Scottish hospitality, dramatic
scenery and impeccable design – and it absolutely lives up to its name. The
spa is sublime, with gold and bronze wet facilities separated into journeys
for men and women and a unisex vitality pool. As well as luxurious ESPA
treatments, the spa also offers wellness programmes
and has on-site physiotherapists, naturopaths and wellness practitioners.
The Michelin starred food is fantastic too.
What more could you ask for?
This is an exceptional spa. The new thermal village has been beautifully
thought out, making the most of the riverside location. The treatments and
relaxation rooms were luxurious, while the friendly, helpful staff made the
whole experience special…
The design brings the outdoors inside at every opportunity, but still
affords privacy from the rest of the hotel. Expect good quality treatments,
lovely relaxation spaces, and lots of great ways to get active if you so
