The Gleneagles Hotel,
Spa & Leisure
Overlooking the rather idyllic glens of Perthshire, the very special thing about the spa and leisure experience at Gleneagles is the way in which is caters not only to every person but every health requirement as well, thanks to the presence of a specialist team of osteopaths, physiotherapists, acupuncturists and more, lead by a skilled naturopathic practitioner.
The spa’s wet facilities are separate to the leisure ones – so there is an exercise pool and gym but once in the spa it is all about relaxing. There are indoor and outdoor pools, a sauna, steam room, arctic mist shower, relaxation rooms, a Courtyard Garden and the cherry on top – a collection of tailored ESPA treatments as well.
Hotel & Accommodation
First conceived as design homage to the French aristocracy’s chateaux tradition, the architecture of Gleneagles is a visual indicator of the five-star service that lies within. Looking out onto an 18-hole golf course designed by 18th Century master horticulturalist, Capability Brown, there are 232 bedrooms at the hotel including 26 suites – all of which enjoy subtly contemporary design with lots of space and soft fabrics.
When it comes to food, Gleneagles guests are spoiled for choice – The Strathearn is the fine dining option with a reputation for excellence, and there is also the Andrew Fairlie restaurant where French/Scottish fusion cooking is overseen by the Michelin Star chef himself. Additionally, Deseo serves lighter Mediterranean meals in the spa; the Dormy Clubhouse on the golf course, and a jazz inspired bar – The Blue Bar.
