Spa & Leisure
As if the breathtaking surroundings of rural Scotland were not enough of a relaxation factor, the spa and leisure facilities at The Marine Hotel also include a gym, dance studio hosting a number of exercise classes; a pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and solarium.
Completing the package, the spa is also a devotee of British brand, Decléor, and uses it to optimum effect in a collection of facials, massages, envelopments and scrubs, and alongside Jessica Nails for manicures and pedicures.
Hotel & Accommodation
Dating back to 1894, the hotel is named for its position on the West Coast of Scotland and accordingly features dramatic views and status as a prime location from which to explore Ayrshire, amongst its draw cards. With 89 bedrooms, the purpose built venue has boasted four stars since 1912 and is the only hotel in Scotland to have retained the rank throughout its history.
The Fairways restaurant, which unsurprisingly given the name overlooks the 18th hole of the Royal Troon golf course, has two AA Rosettes for its quintessentially Scottish cuisine. Afternoon teas complete with
champagne are also available.
