Which spa offers the best spa day in Edinburgh?

With so many majestic hotels in the city, hotel spas are a popular choice in Edinburgh. For the ultimate, regal luxury – including full use of hydrotherapy pools, saunas and meditation rooms – these are the best day spas in the city:

  • One Spa is a luxury, thermal spa which is part of the prestigious Sheraton hotel in the Old Town. You can check it for a day of relaxation or stay overnight and indulge in the ultimate staycation.
  • Guerlain Spa is a glamorous, French-inspired retreat in the historic Waldorf Astoria hotel in Edinburgh city centre.
  • MacDonald Cardona Hotel Spa is an out of town retreat offering beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding countryside – providing a blissful backdrop to the thermal pool.
  • Rocco Forte Spa promises treatments fit for royalty – complete with a glass of champagne. Set in the Balmoral, a prestigious hotel in Edinburgh city centre, there are many spa day packages to choose from here.

What couples’ treatments can I get at a spa in Edinburgh?

Some spa days in Edinburgh have tailored packages for couples. This usually includes a couple’s massage, where you’re treated side-by-side. You can also have your nails done together – and enjoy some well-earned pampering with manicures and pedicures.

Even if it’s not a couples’ package, there are plenty of opportunities to relax together in Edinburgh’s day spas. In between your treatments, you can soak together in the celestial pool, take a dip in the hydrotherapy pool and unwind in the sauna.

Where can I book a spa day with afternoon tea in Edinburgh?

If scones and finger sandwiches take your fancy, check out these options which include quaint afternoon tea as part of the experience:

  • MacDonald Cardona Hotel. Enjoy cream tea and a glass of fizz in this state-of-the-art spa on the outskirts of Edinburgh.
  • Rocco Forte Balmore Hotel Spa. After you’ve been pampered and preened, get high tea and champagne served in the grand setting of the hotel’s Palm Court.

Remember: you should try to avoid eating for at least one hour before your spa treatments, so that afternoon tea will have to wait until afterwards. Whether you’re going with your partner, best friend or family, it’ll adds an air of sophistication to the whole spa experience.
