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.
The spa’s wet facilities are separate to the leisure ones – so there is a 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.
Sitting separately form the spa, a short walk across the grounds, Gleneagles also has a dedicated beauty offering for guests in the form of Bob & Cloche. A brand new facility, it was formerly one of the hotel’s gate lodges, which has been transformed into an elegant beauty destination named after two style motifs of the Jazz age – the racy ‘bob’ haircut, and the close-fitting cloche hat. The various beauty rooms showcase bespoke golden framed mirrors, opulent furnishings and a striking colour palette.
Meanwhile, a stylish relaxation area has a roaring fire that makes it reminiscent of a cosy drawing room - perfect for friends to unwind in between treatments. There is also a luxurious dressing room which adds glamour and fun to the ritual of trying on outfits and perfecting a look before dinner.
